Organizing My Mists

In my continuing efforts to get organized, I decided to work on my mists, sprays and daubers. (I didn’t take a before picture, but you can probably use your imagination to envision the mess! Oh, they were in a jumble.)

Now look:

The first thing I did was put a small piece of sticker paper on the top of the bottle. Then I added a dab of the ink/spray color to the top so I could easily see the colors.
This box has my miscellaneous sprays — Maya Road, ColorBox, Mister Huey, Heidi Swapp, Stephanie Barnard, etc.

This box below has all my Ranger inks: Dylusions, Distress, Acrylic Daubers, etc. (Yes, I need to add color to the tops of my Distress Inks.)

I also have a smaller box for my Hero Arts paint and ink daubers.

Now I can actually find the colors I need! What a pleasure!
Think I’ll go mist something…

Fabulous Finds Friday — Ribbon Rewind

Yikes! I missed Friday! How did that happen?

I found a cool tool to share … a ribbon winder and storage system from Best Craft Organizer. (They make one of my favorite stamp storage units — the Mini Stackable.)

Here’s the ribbon winder in action:

And here they are all organized:

Then just put them in the storage containers, which have slots so you can easily pull out what you need without opening up the container.

Here’s a picture of the Mini Stackable unit:

This is the sturdiest drawer system I’ve found — I love it for my stamps. You can customize the drawers to suit your needs — drawers come in 1, 2 or 3 1/2 inch depths. There’s also a paper shelf. The drawers and shelves pull out easily, making it simple to pick up a drawer of stamps and take it to your desk.  For more info go to
