On it goes...
Good Morning! It is approaching 6 am here and I am up early... too early...
My Mom is flying in for a visit so we are off to the airport soon to pick her up!
I thought I would give an update on how my Mission Organization was going :)
I am very excited to announce that ALL of my stamp sets are now cataloged in a binder!!! WooHoo!
I have all of my Clear Mount stamps in one binder and all of the wood in another.
All of my Clear Mount Stamps are stacked alphabetically -
I have separated Christmas stamp sets and Halloween stamp sets so they are easier to access.
My Wood Mount sets are stacked by size. I need the "order" that doing this provides.
I like how they look all neat and tidy in their stacks :)
Each "size" is then alphabetized.
My Wood Mount binder is only alphabetical order.
I did not separate the pages by "box size" in the book.
I am thinking that I might implement a "dot" system... assign each box size a colored dot and then apply that color to the corresponding stamp set in the binder so they are easier to locate on the shelves.
I'm not sure yet though... I don't have that many ( and pretty much know my stamps - hee hee)
so I should be able to remember which size box a set is in. Time will tell.
Once I was done organizing my stamp sets, I moved on to my Designer Paper.
That was a huge chore!
I have 57 folders of Designer Paper!
Each folder contains one series of Designer Paper.
The "retired" ones are in snap closure protectors and the "current" ones are in open - top style.
I labeled each package, with my p-touch label maker, so I would know which series of DP it contains.
My next mission is to create a binder with samples of all of the different patterns and which card stock colors they coordinate with. That will be a very large project but I am super excited to get it started!
What better way is there, to fall in love with it all again,
than to touch and feel it all - and really look at each one ?
I LOVE my papers!!!! They are soooo pretty!!!!
I hope I have given you some organizing ideas
or have inspired you to revisit your stamp sets and designer papers -
I have fallen in love again with my older stamps and papers.
They are happily organized and at my finger tips - calling my name :)
But, alas, I need to get moving so I can get to the airport!
Thanks for stopping by today!
If you have any questions about any of my organization methods,
Don't hesitate to give me a shout! I'll be happy to share :)
