This month, I’m all about storage and organizing. I think it might be part of my Spring cleaning ritual! I’ve grabbed some of the essentials that I use in my workspace. These are all easy identification items that will help save you time for more creating instead of wasting time digging around to find what you’re looking for.
I use storage shelves that have slots to store my inks. Although I love my shelves, It’s hard to see the label tops of my ink pads. To help me out, I use the Brother Label Maker to create a label to place on the base of each ink pad. I can quickly identify an ink color and off to creating I go! I label anything that needs it like clear storage pockets for my stamps and dies. Tip: There are different sizes of tape available!
These tins are displayed in my workspace. They not only look nice, but I can see what’s inside through the transparent window. The ink alcohol and mini ink tins have a plastic liner with fitted areas for each color. I keep my mini cube tins in a cute basket close to my work area for easy access.
I just like looking at this tiered display shelf. The colors of the Nuvo drops are just so pretty! The bottles fit perfectly on each tier, and I’m able to organize them by color families. The tiered design allows me to see what’s behind even when stored on a shelf. Another quick grab item and storage idea!
Finally, these clear storage jars. I have a lot of little trinkets, tokens, pins, and embellishments that need homes. I store the jars upside down in a clear box so when looking into the box, I can see what’s inside the jars. These also help me when cleaning up, I return the unused pieces right back into the jar when done.
We hope you have enjoyed this month’s installment of Did You Know?! Tune in again next month for a brand new edition of this fun series!
