Cleaned and organized my "garage"...

Postby kissy » Jul 9th, '07, 9:19 pm

.. and I am happy to report that my mojo has returned! I was just not feeling scrappy last week. When I am not feeling very scrappy I re-arrange, clean and organize my scrap room, for some reason this always gets me back in the mood create!  What do you do to get back in the scrappy mood?

Stay up late after the kids go to bed so that I can actually think!

Cleaning helps me too, and so does taking lots of pictures.

I have to start with a clean workspace every time I start a new project.  I feel too cluttered otherwise.

Same here. I can't concentrate if everything's a mess. I just bought the Clip it up for hanging stickers, letters, and whatnot, and I love it. It's nice to be able to see all of your supplies yet still have them nice and tidy.

I have a "homemade" clip it up (made from lamp shade parts and a clay saucer) and I love it! So organized and easy to see what you have!

Kissy! Please post a picture of it! I would love to see it. What are you using for the clips? I just today moved my scrap crap out of my dining room into my walk in closet (still not ideal, but at least when I'm messy no one will see it). I have wire shelves in there, and I was thinking of clipping things on, but don't want to spend too much money on the clips.

thanks!

I have been eyeing this little item since I read it's review several months back.
Sounds like they are quite a handy piece of scrapping hardware!
I'm pretty rural and isolated for shopping - any suggestions
where I might find one on-line?

Supply List:

Erin - you are a Peach! 
Thank you so much for the instructions.
However, I'm afraid I'm too impatient,
and will probably end up ordering  the 'real deal'
from somewhere!
