Organizing with Billy …

Where do I start? It’s been crazy busy and I’m lovin’ every minute of it! Learning a lot as I go; so thankful for everyone’s patience. I never imagined I’d be on one design team, let alone three at the same time. Not sure what I was thinking when I applied for them all but I really am enjoying the challenges.

It was so wonderful to see all the familiar faces at Mega Meet! Thank you to each and every one of you who stopped by the Globecraft Memories booth to say ‘hi.’ Felt like old times!

One good thing that has happened is I really had to organize my supplies so I could keep all the product separated for each team once it started arriving. Made two trips to Ikea for three Billy Bookcases. They’ve worked out great! I’m a visual person and need to see my supplies – I envy those who keep everything tucked behind little doors and in pretty boxes. I’ve tried it and it doesn’t work for me. With the shelves I can quickly scan for product and it is so much easier to put away. Here’s what they look like. There’s even some space I haven’t filled yet but I’m sure as I finish organizing it will slowly disappear.

And, look at the desk! I actually found it! See those clothespins and binder clips on the lamp shade? They’re really handy when gluing stuff together; sometimes you just need a third hand!

It was so nice to sit in here to work. I am using cd storage racks for my dies (Sizzix, Tim Holtz, etc) and so far it’s a good fit. Got an idea for the magnetic dies I’m going to try with my Xyron. I’ll show it to you if it works.

Spent yesterday helping our daughter Rachel with some home and yard chores. Her birthday is today; she’s 29. Happy birthday Rachel! I’m working on a cd book I’ve decided will be for her titled ‘Untie your Wings.’ I feel the title is appropriate considering she has a new wonderful man in her life and they’re making plans for the future. I’d love to show you a sneak peek but opted to show you the happy couple instead!

In case you’ve missed any design team posts you can visit them here at Art Glitter and here at Globecraft Memories. While there take time to check out the other design team members and leave a comment or two. You’ll find some very talented people!

Don’t forget to sign up for my newsletter or you can check it out right here on the blog. Classes are coming up and will be listed on the calendar by the end of the week. Hope to see or hear from you soon – enjoy the beautiful weather this week!

    The couple is cute, how neet. Must be that time of year for orgainizing, I was looking all weekend last week to find something I would want to use. Long time ago I looked at Billy, but wasn’t sure it would work for the space I wanted, might revisit. Thanks for sharing.


    1. Thanks Candy! I use the ink caddy by Best. We used to sell the product at the store. I love it! I purchased extra inserts so the Distress pads fit just fine and also purchased the stoppers for travel. They lock all the pads in so I can easily take it with me. It is actually two separate units so it can be hung on the wall but I love the fact that it sits within reach and it swirls around. It holds all my Distress inks (so far) and some of my favorite Archival pads. Soon, I probably need a second one.


  2. Wow! Everything is sooooooooooo organized! How soon can you stop by and do the same magic in my craft area?

    Congratulations on being on three design teams! I hope you have time to sleep. šŸ™‚


    1. Thanks Robin! Of course, it doesn’t look that neat today; I’ve been working in there again and now getting ready for that great Fred Mullet class this afternoon!
