Thanks for popping in. Been blitzing my artroom today. What a mess! A real shambles actually. Honestly, I have never been great at filing. When I come back from a show or a demo day, I just dump all the craft gear, and dash off to the next job, saying I’ll come back to it later – as I skip off into the distance…
Thing is, if you keep doing that, you end up with this:
After a while it comes back to bit you right on the derriere. You dumped and dashed becasue you were too busy to put it all away, but eventually you waste more time looking for stuff than ever, and the whole crafting process becomes not only a drag but also totally ineffective -especially if you do it for a living like I do!!
So. TODAY I gave myself a good talking to. SORT IT OUT WOMAN!! I said. And she did. Or should I say, she is on the case. Because this little shitpit of a creative bombshell is gonna take a little longer than a day to sort…
Where to start. I went to the warehouse I got myself a big box of storage folders. Then I just started filing all my stamps. One folder at a time.
Still got a way to go, and it definitely got worse before it turned the curve
but boy oh boy, does it already feel better.
So I’ve just called our Steve at work and asked him to fire up a BOGOF Sale on all the Storage Folders. (Buy One Get One Free).
I mean, it’s easy for me – she who bought the warehouse full of folders to start with – to just saunter into said warehouse and take 50 folders off the shelf! 50 probably won’t even cover this little job. But I thought perhaps some of you are also thinking about having a sort out! And if you are, and if you are anything like me, then two for the price of one is alway a good incentive! Anyway, if you are anything like me, you’re going to need more than one folder!!
It’s been very pleasant actually. I have been going through all the stamp designs, and there really are some glorious ones which have barely been aired. So once I’ve filed everything and sorted out a locator file, then I’m going to have a good think about some Moments of Clarity and Craftalongs. The Mixed Impression Texture Mats for example. There is SO SO much potential with those beauties – and we have barely skimmed the surface.
Once I’ve dealt with the stamps, I shall move onto the Groovi Plates. Not this week though. They’re piled up in stacks at the other end of the room! Sheesh. I spend way too long shuffling through them looking for a particular plate when I know if I only filed them into folders they’d be so much easier to find.
Steve’s just let me know that the BOGOF banners are in place, so dive in! Offer lasts until midnight Sunday. Or until the Warehouse is empty. Whichever comes first!
CLICK HERE to find all the folder in one place. The free folder won’t show up on you order; we will just know to add it.
Want to keep me company having a sort out? Now’s a perfect time.
