When life gives me lemons, I grab the vodka and the sugar and get on the whole lemon drop thang (totally INSTEAD OF THE LAUNDRY of course) And after that, when chaos still ensues, I have to bring some kind of order back to my life. The easiest way for me to fix that is to ORGANIZE (see boys and girls, it is NOT a four letter word at all). Organizing gives my mind something to focus on instead of the negative (HA, you thought I was going to use yet another cheap ploy and put INSTEAD OF THE LAUNDRY didn't you??) I love to organize and think I do a pretty dang good job of it. My theory is "a place for everything and everything in its place." I am brave enough to chuck it if it doesn't have somewhere to go or a use (just ask my ex-husband!! BADA BING...it had to be said!). Craft supplies can be both easy and hard to organize. WOW!! Vague much? It can be difficult when crafters try to conform to the ways that others structure their mother load of supplies as opposed to the way that they craft. HUGE MISTAKE! BIG! All the candy stations and Ikea shelving units mean nothing if they aren't helping you get creative and crafty every single day. You have to think about your crafty style...are you color driven, theme obsessed, collection enthusiastic, in the holds of company products etc, etc, and that should drive how you on how to organize in a way that is meaningful and useful to YOU!!
That's it! Done. End of the blog post. Did it make your world better? Even though I am really kidding about the blog being done, remember we already settled the fact that I was using sensationalism to get you here. And you were okay with that and forgave me. And for that, I appreciate you :)
But seriously, I do have a suggestion for stencils that may (or may not) help you. And if it doesn't, no worries! If you don't craft like me and this doesn't work for you, I would love to hear how you organize your stencils.
Since life has thrown me some lemons as of late and I have indeed been doing some soul searching organization projects and creative therapy. Here is what I have come up with in regards to those aforementioned stencils:
