Organization!

I've been in CHA-prep mode for so long now...then Gina posted this challenge to make a project based on a gorgeous, organized studio.

I looked around my studio. Disaster everywhere! Stuff buried under stuff that was buried. Couldn't find a pen or scissors if I HAD to... {Gina's challenge...whispered my muse}

I found these rolling shelf units for $30 each from WalMart. I had baskets for my supplies, and binders for my stamps, but they were scattered on the floor or over my table. I put these shelves together today, and stowed all my gear on them. Oh. My. Gosh. What a difference. I made my muse very happy today!

Wow. Since I can see all my stuff, everything has a place, and I can immediately grab it. It can go right back to it's home. Now, all I need to do is label those binders, and decide on a few other best solutions for certain hard-to-store product. It's much easier to follow my muse. Rather than stop and start the creative flow to find stuff, I can now just roll with the thought, plan, emotion. It's cool!! Here's what I created (part of it was already done). But can I tell you? The rest came faster!

Products are mostly Gina K, and Basic Grey. I colored the girls with prismacolors and OMS, copic markers, and smooch. Such fun! I am loving Alicia's new stamp set, Wishes and Dreams. LOVE them! Easy to color, great sentiments and very versatile. The card box is based on a free template generously given to us by Gina K. She even has a video showing you step-by-step how to make it.

Come play some challenges! Come learn and share. Just check it out...Stamp TV is a wonderful place to be.

I'm heading to the Craft and Hobby Association's Super Show in Anaheim tomorrow. Prayers for safe travels for all the people heading that way would be greatly appreciated. I hope to be able to post some photos, so check back!

Cool runnings - Peace be the journey! ~ky
