This time I’m sharing tips for memory keeping organization:
Let's talk about organization for this week's #nndailytip posts because I just got done with a big scrap space clean up. Keeping things visible helps you use them. I keep my (embarrassingly large) washi collection in a 12×12 box (with the lid cut off). When the tapes were in a jumble, or when I kept them in a bowl, I used them less. Being able to scan quickly to see if something will work makes me more likely to reach for my stash, because I know I don't have to waste time wading through the options. What parts of your stash can you make more visible so you are more likely to use your supplies?
Didn't get around to posting a #nndailytip yesterday because of the election, so I will post two today. This week I'm posting about organization. Organizing your memory keeping supplies isn't always about things looking great. Sometimes it's about placing things in a way to help you work most efficiently. I keep my most used tools in a big drawer in my desk, so I can crack the front while I'm working to get to pens, adhesive, scissors, and tweezers without cluttering my workspace or having to get up. What supplies do you keep within reach while you craft?
Back to #nndailytip. Right now they are all about organization. Office organization supplies cross over well for scrapbooking organization. I've found a lot of mine at estate sales and antique stores–usually cheaper and more durable than what you'll find at office supply stores. Index card boxes are perfect for pocket scrapbooking cards and library catalog drawers are awesome for holding kits! What office supplies do you use for scrapbooking organization?
This week's #nndailytip posts are on organization. Change how you organize supplies based on changing quantity and how you use the items. I used to keep all of my acrylic stamps in a suitcase, but it ended up being a case of "out of sight, out of mind" for me. I've ended up with a lot of them over the years due to kit clubs. Having them visible and organized by manufacturer and theme helps me find what I need quickly. I also have other sorts of stamps nearby–little bowls with roller stamps, a jar of block mounted stamps, and a box for tiny acrylic stamps. This set up keeps these stamps visible for me–otherwise I'd never use them! What do you do with your stamps?
This week's #nndailytip posts are about organization. One thing that keeps me organized as I go is a big bowl for recycling on my desk. Putting paper scraps and packaging in keeps them off my workspace and I can just empty when it gets full. Having a good waste system helps you stay focused and efficient when you are scrapping!
I've been stretching out this organization #nndailytip Photo organization is so important in scrapbooking! I keep photos from all devices together in one place (Photos on my Mac) and then pull my favorites into folders based on how my scrapbooks are organized so I can arrange them and decide how to print. How do you keep your photos organized?
This wraps up the #nndailytip posts about organization! My office / craft space isn't going to be featured in a home decor magazine any time soon, but everything is placed to help me function (and minimize toddler damage). My advice to you is to add beautiful touches to make you happy, but to focus on how you work in the space over how it looks overall.
