How has your weekend been? I can't believe it's almost over already! I got a headache Friday morning that continued to get worse as the day went on and didn't let up until Saturday evening. Today I've been busy getting stuff done so it seems that the weekend has just raced by me!
Well, in my headache induced state I didn't feel too creative so I did a bit of organizing and thought you might be interested in my latest storage idea for thin metal dies. I've been buying a number of those adorable little things from places like Papertrey Ink and My Favorite Things and storing them in a plastic craft drawer. But now that my collection has reached a nice size, I usually have to take every die out of the drawer before I find the one I want!
Recently, while on a vintage treasure hunt, I found this great wood card catalog box that turned out to be the perfect solution for my dies!
A2 size envelopes fit in this box perfectly and I have plenty of them on hand since I make cards! I also have a lot of plain white card stock...lots of bits and pieces in my scraps bin that I used to make a sample die for the front of each envelope.
I have the dies organized by similar type, flowers all together. At some point I can add dividers if I find it necessary.
Ah...how much easier it is than looking for a die lost in this mess! :) By-the-way, if I hadn't found that lovely card catalog box, I could have used a small plastic Sterilite container from Target.
Well, I hope your weekend was way more fun than mine was! I'm happy to be headache free now and have a lot of things to catch up on. I want to get into the kitchen and try some new recipes. I need to bake a sweet for the boys. Have a great week. I'll be popping onto the blog to share some more crafty goodness with you soon! :) Kathy
