Recent Class at Scrapbooking Store

I recently took a class at our local scrapbooking store called "Organized for Life".  When I first saw the class I thought "this is perfect for me, just what I need right now since I'm in the middle of re-doing the craft room".  Yes, I'm still working on the craft room :-)  Actually I'm still trying to pack everything up and move it into the other bedroom.  I've had to wait for my son to move all of his stuff out to his place before I could start moving anything in and that's been my excuse not to pack more than I could store in the open floor space that I have in the craft room.  Good excuse right?  That's what I keep telling myself anyway and it works for me :-) 

This is a picture and a description of the class:  

Organized for Life

January Organizer


"Let's start the new year with a little organization. Do you have too many products - you can't keep track of what you already have and what you may need? You're not alone!! In this class we will be creating a product organizer."

Anyway, back to the class.  First I should have clued in by the size of the book compared to the stickles bottle, but being fairly new to the paper crafting world I didn't.  The book itself was only 6" x 4 1/2".

I don't really know where start or how to organize everything on paper that I have.  Well let me just say that this class did not live up to my expectations; all we did was put together a book with some dividers in it.  Does that sound like the description to you?  Well it sure as heck doesn't to me!  So I'm asking anyone reading this if they have any suggestions for me that would help me to in putting onto paper an inventory of everything that I have and organizing it so that it's easy to see at a glance.  I'm finding that it's at the point that I'm buying duplicates of things now, especially for my cake decorating equipment, which isn't cheap :-(

Well, that's enough ranting for now, I'll be back later this week with a yummy post about cakes and buttercream ..................mmmmmmmm.

Take care, and thanks for stopping by



  1. I know many crafters who just keep a simple list of the things they're likely to buy duplicates of. Ie: a list of stickles colors, a list of Tim Holtz Distress Ink colors, a list of Cuttlebug Folders, a list of Spellbinders etc. This book could still work if has some lined paper in it and you dedicate it just to craft supply lists:)

  2. Great idea, I guess I was making things too complicated :-) Thank you!



I would love to hear what you think or what's on your mind :-) Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment.
