just signed up to follow your blog. Your page is sooo cute. Love the fade idea for the embossing. Thanks for sharing!
There are jokes that abound in the scrapbooking community about how much product we have in our scrapbook studio, closet, room, etc. I will be celebrating my 10th year in modern scrapbooking next month. As I was looking around at my "stash" I found products I had "hoarded" because it was too cute and wanted to save it until I found the perfect event or photo. Or product I had purchased so much of because as you know in the scrapbooking industry something new comes out and the older fades into the background. "I don't want to run out of ________." You fill in the blank. Any of this sound familiar?
Well, I am officially out of room in my studio. It has become so overwhelming that I can not create at times. My goal over the weekend: Clear it out!
I want to clean and simple look to the studio. I want to only keep products that I will use within the next 12 months, including some tools. My studio is a total mess right now, but I'm proud of myself for boxing up quiet a few items up to this point. I'll probably go back over the room again once I've finished the initial round just to make sure it wasn't for sentimental reason that I kept something.
A couple of items I found ... so far ... that I had an overwhelming amount of are:
brads (probably close to a 1,000 plus)
Magic Mesh (LOL)
things I wanted to recycle
an so much more!
In the cleaning of the studio I did put together two items I could not figure out how to store. I have this roll of thread my mom sent me and I've start using Washi tape. So what better way to display both and limit myself to how much Washi tape I can store on the roll.
Despite the saying "the one who dies with the most scrapbooking products wins" I don't want to win this one. I say "The one that dies with the most scrapbook pages complete, leave a legacy of memories!"
Have a Crafty Artsy Day!
