There comes a time when you've got so much paper you forget what you've got!!!!!!!
So I spent today cutting a strip off each 12x12 sheet of patterned paper I have. This task was:
1. Scary - I didn't realise I had quite so much paper! - It looks a lot more when presented like this (left) than it does in boxes in my workroom!
2. Useful 1: It reminded me what paper I have.
3. Useful 2: Now its nice and easy to flick through these strips to sheets to find 'perfect' sheet for a project (rather than trolling through lots of boxes)(once I've dug them out from under the desk!)
4. Useful 3: Showed me that paper looks different when its cut smaller - the 'snapshot' of a piece can make it look really different and so throws up more options!
I feel I achieved something useful after I'd done this - getting my creative mind going (by getting organised)
I've also been to Ikea and got a couple more of their HUGE (& fab) cookie jars - one for buttons (a girls gotta have a button tin - this is my version!) and one for paper flowers.... Oh the prettiness!!!
