Having spend quite a lot of time with my stamps over the last few days I am now pretty happy with the arrangement. Thank goodness! One thing I realized is that I need something to make me actually browse thru them to keep fixed in my mind what I have. That is the idea behind what is surely a not-for-everyone choice to group the things I have the most of together. I hope that will force me to riffle thru them to choose, refreshing my memory of them every time. First, a closer look at my DI storage solution – bargain of the week at £4.99.
Still tidy after a week. Result!
Next what is really on my W this week – a pile of needing-to-be-mounted stamps. God I hate mounting stamps. Thankfully not as many as I feared.
Next a look at the new organization. I think I have enough flower stamps at this point!
The CD cases with flowers in them fill most of the 2nd shelf. Have mercy! The bottom shelf is a hodge podge of things that don’t fit (like really big backgrounds) and some wood mounted stamps that I use a lot. Need to think on that a bit further but it’ll do for now.
and finally a step back from the desk. I really did reclaim a good 24 inches of usable space!
Ignore all the horrible technology – That’s the router, the VOIP equipment, and the indoor security camera (the other four are outside mounts) and I know it is ugly as sin but not able tobe elsewhere so I deal.
Hope you all have a most excellent Wednesday, and drop by Julia’s to see the lovely list of creative players in the weekly WOYWW game. Now I am online again (yay!) I will hope to see yours today! It’s been a month (or more) since I’ve felt truly a part of the desk hop but things are looking up, the internet is reasonably stable, and except for still not being able to comment on anything other than new-window-for-comments blogs I am feeling ready and raring to go!
