I've got this real love-hate relationship with embellishments. I love all those little things, that put the finishing touches on cards and lay-outs, but they are a pain to store and sort. I'm slowly but surely working towards sorting everything by colour, but it's still very much a work in progress.
My flowers and buttons are stored in IKEA jars (like many of use I think), my tiny embellishments I've got sorted in bead boxes, which I purchased at John Lewis, but you can buy them on eBay as well. My alphabet stickers I've got stored in a very sturdy, perfectly sized box from Paperchase. I've got them sorted by colour as well. I do however still want to make separators, so it's easier to see the colours.
When we left Australia, my friend Beth gave me three gorgeous boxes, that were handcrafted. In those I store my bling, pearls, tags, notebooks, etc. They sit on the edge of my desk.
Here's a collage of everything:
Now that the house renovation is almost come to an end, I'm getting this urge to completely put my craft room upside down and have a serious clear-out. In that respect, I've got a question for you. Do you keep all your scrapbooking magazines, if you get any? I'm thinking about going through mine and taking out only what inspires me and put those in an inspiration binder. I'm curious to know how you organise them.
This is the end of my Spring Clean Mondays. I hope you've enjoyed it and that it might have inpsired you. If there is any tips or advise you can give me, I'd love to hear your thoughts.
