When I was just starting out paper crafting, I had some paper that came in the great big totes with all the other supplies. But I needed to flush out my new collection. So a trip to Joann Fabric was in order. I picked up a bunch of single sheets of cardstock and some beautiful paper. And then I saw it.....Wholly Cow! A big book of 12x12 sheets of paper by DCWV. MY HOLY GRAIL!!! Halloween/Autumn all in a single book. Excited is beyond what I was feeling. Grabbing up my treasures, I head home with visions of the cards I can create for all my friends and family.
By now my stash of supplies is growing like weeds. Those 3 totes are full and I have commandeered the closet in my dear husbands area that was his office. (of course I took it over a long time ago with my vintage singer 503A machine but he just doesn't know it yet) To get at various items, I needed to move other stuff. Being a little OCD with my organizational skills this is driving me crazy.
There has to be a way to organize all my supplies and keep the price down doing it. (went a little overboard on all the pretty paper and markers) One day on a COSTCO run, I found the most wonderful 12x12 plastic project boxes in a 5 pack made by Creative Options. I put my beautiful paper in these. But I still wasn't organized. I wanted stuff off the floor and out where I did not have to dig to find something. Think, Think, Think..... My husband, gotta love him, came up with the perfect solution. Back to COSTCO a few weeks later for more project boxes and this was his solution.
