Hi SP Bloggers ... Man I'm having Playground withdrawal! Middle of last week, I headed out to Myrtle Beach with my BFF, Nancy. Our sons are college freshman, roommates and on the school's baseball team and this marked their official college debut. They both did well personally and the team did terrific, winning 3 of 4 games! However, there was another competitor in the mix -- the weather! So we spent a good amount of time waiting for text updates from the boys on schedule changes. Then when I got back late Sunday, I dove right into a busy work schedule. Today I'm not only looking forward to Joey's card class, but can't wait to swing by to see all the latest new goodies ... will be sure to share pictures over the weekend!
Now on to the main blog topic ... At a recent crop at the Playground, I noticed it took me a little longer to get going because I was out of my element. That got a few of us talking -- and laughing -- about the different creative zones we've carved out in our homes and our approaches to organizing our 'stuff'.
Some have rooms dedicated to our craft, some share space with the rest of the family (but admittedly ooze beyond the boundaries), some spread projects out on the dining room table so they are still part of the family action. Some use clear containers to to see and enjoy all the pretty things; some use practical containers that are easy to grab and go for crops; still others use baskets or other pretty enclosed containers to keep things within reach but out of sight when not in use. And some sort their stuff by color or by type of item and themes, while others sort by brand to keep papers and coordinating embellishments all together.
Claimed just about every inch of the closet space
available in this room too for papers and more.
Some of my clear containers and oh the pretty colors.
My 'go to' stuff is always within easy reach!
Love the little buckets that I picked up at SP.
Oh, and hopefully you saw Thursday's SP newsletter that announced the upcoming garage sale. It's always good to weed out things you just won't ever use (and make room for new things!!) I'll post more about the garage sale in a couple days, just in case you don't receive our newsletter. Happy Friday everyone!
