YAY for me!!

It's official!

I finally have one thing....








organized in my craft room!!

My beautiful Close To My Heart papers are comfy & cozy in their own special slots. Each one marked with the color and name of the paper. How special are they??

My husband put in three of these double door units for me a few months ago. You can see they just fit below the lowered section of the ceiling. We wanted to keep them away from the wall on the right because of the air intake. It occurred to me that taking my paper rack off the table and re-orienting it to stand up and down in the corner would fill the space in question and still not block the intake. It also means more work space on the table!! It meant taking apart and rebuilding the rack but I love the results!! I turned the slots vertical on the botton two cubes and have a great place to store my Close To My Heart eyelet case, ribbon case, acrylix blocks case and a few other items.

Although it doesn't appear so, I do have paper in every single slot!

While cutting the tags for IDing my papers, I also made up the season color cards for the wall. Now that they are there, I am not sure what their purpose is... **blushing** but they are in order of the catalog listing and also stored in the same order.
OMHeck, I feel so dang organized!!!!!


  1. great feat of accomplishments, Bets!
    I remember when I built my four towers and felt oh so contrair!!!

  2. I am in LOVE with the wall hanging you made for the cardstock colors. What did you use to make it?

  3. Perrine, I used black card stock - 6x12 for each season and then cut a slice of each color and adhered it on. The strips of color are probably something like 5.75 x 1.75. I wanted to be sure to leave a bit of black around each color. The the white sheet in the middle has the names of the 6 colors. Let me know if you want to see a close up of one of the seasons.
