Day Eight – Break's Over

Boxes to Die For

It's Monday and time to get something done. Organizing is doing something creative. It is also necessary in order to know what art supplies I have and where to find them so I'm not wasting my creative time and energy looking for them. Mine have gotten a little out of control... Well, a lot really.

So I spent today pulling newer dies out of boxes and bags to make sure they were catalogued and put away in clear plastic containers I had purchased for the purpose. At some point, I felt quite overwhelmed. I was trying to convert some older containers to the newer ones but found that not only would some not fit but I didn't have enough empty ones. But little by little I was able to group like sizes and types together. I was still left with a cardboard box full but will go buy some more tomorrow. Then it should be easier to put the rest away. I found I like to use these wonderful containers from "Really Useful Boxes" available from Office Depot and Staples. The long rectangular boxes made for CDs/DVDs are just the right size for Sizzix Bigz, Originals and Embossing Folders. They stack nicely, with the lids being raised without any funny indentations in them to prevent closing. Smaller boxes are good for medium Sizzlits, smaller dies and inkpads.
