I need a solution
(Denver CO area)
I'm sort of new to card making/scrapbooking, and have gone a little overboard with buying supplies.
Now I don't know where to store them. I've got plastic shoe boxes and larger plastic tubs full of "stuff" (also a large plastic "filing cabinet" and small one)
My dining room has completely been overtaken with it all.
I bought a room divider to hide the dining room with all of it's mess, but will need to use the dining room (for dining, of all things) soon and everything must go "somewhere".
Also, when making things, bits and snippets of paper go all over the floor. Am I just messy, or does this happen with everyone? HELP!!
(My dining room is the only place with lots of light, so don't suggest a craft room--in my dreams!)
Christina says ...
Oh dear!! I had to laugh at this as I had visions of you disappearing under a sea of paper, glitter and glues. (Been there and done that!!)
I sympathise with you totally, as I am sure many other crafters will.
It happens everytime ....you start to make a few cards and then become addicted to the hobby and before you know where you are your "Stash" has taken over... the dining room... the lounge ... kitchen and bedroom ... and suddenly it is everywhere.
You have done the correct thing though in storing it all in boxes, but now it is where to put the boxes.
How about moving some cupboard space around or storing it under the bed until you need it.
I wouldn't worry about being a messy crafter... I am too and some of your most creative moments come out of all the at mess.
Happy cardmaking and welcome to this fabulous hobby.
