I was reading an article about identifying your passions and I actually didn’t get very far into it before I realized how much I love to organize and that I had a huge project waiting for me. I literally jumped up and started taking out all my craft supplies. Some were in the garage, some in my daughter’s craft closet, and some still in moving boxes.
I finally had time to spread everything out on the floor in the office and sort them into containers so that I can use them. I have had to put it off because there are so many little doodads that an almost three-year-old would love to get her little hands on. So I decided the Thanksgiving planning, holiday card addressing, and driver safety class I have to take can wait, put on some music, and dove in.
Paper, stickers, ribbon, adhesives, markers, buttons, sparkles, photo corners galore!
I used to be an avid scrapbooker. I mean, a physical, glue on your hands kind of scrapbooker. A take over your dining room table and floor space kind of scrapbooker. I spent hours and hours making baby books of my little nephew or books of our vacations. And then I started doing it all digitally and I abandoned all these fun supplies. I still have a large box of 12×12 books just waiting for beautiful pages.
You can imagine the amount of time I spent contentedly wandering around scrapbooking and craft stores back in the day, let alone the amount of money invested in all these supplies.
Well now I am going to use them!! I’ve got everything organized into usable, labeled bins.
All my baby book supplies are together: papers, stickers, ribbons, etc.
I have two containers of papers: solid and patterned.
I have a container full of the other stickers, page borders, and letters.
And finally all the tools and stencils are boxed together.
Now I can wander into this otherwise messy closet (my next project) and see everything put together so nicely. I get goosebumps just looking at it all!
Stay tuned for some fun craft projects!
