I don't know about you, but lately my craft room is a wreck! Wayyyyy too much stuff crammed into wayyy too small of a space. A problem that plagues most crafters, I think. So I've decided that it's time to do a little Spring Cleaning.
As much as I would love to simply empty out the room & start from scratch, that's not a possibility for me. I only have a little time here & there to work on it and really, where on earth would I put it all while I was working on it?? So instead, I'm going to start in 1 corner & work my way around a little at a time.
I'm getting myself started with a label maker. I have one of those old school ones that you squeeze to create the words, but I find that the labels don't stick to my plastic organizers very well. They fall off with annoying regularity and I often find them stuck to my poor kitty, who, being the world's most nervous animal to begin with, is less than thrilled with the removal process. I think a digital label maker with a more flexible tape will be a much better option. The best part is that I found this cute little Brother P-Touch at Office Depot yesterday ( www.officedepot.com ) on sale for just $10!
(Look! It's even a cute Cricut green!)
I've made a good start on the first corner. I cleaned out all of the organizer drawers. Dumped out the dust, sorted things out and labeled them accordingly.
I also took some time to label some sorted photos. I love these Iris photo organizers (available here: http://www.amazon.com/jbr2028-Iris-R-Photo-Keeper/dp/B000VFDZWO ) When ever I order photos to be printed, I sort them into these boxes. Now I can add labels to the top of each case, so I know what's inside them without having to dig through each one for the photos I want.
Tomorrow I'm off from work, so I plan on cleaning out the large Iris Carts under these ones. I'll let you know how it goes!
I hope you all enjoy this wonderful sun-shiney day!
