I haven't made much progress in the last week - I have a lot going on that has taken me away from the blog and the studio - some good (visiting family), some not so good and still trying to find a way to process and share. When I get stressed I just shut down so I haven't really done much lately. Today in place of studio progress I thought I would share with you a little bit of the studio today that is done - how I store my paper. There's the debate of whether or not you should store by manufacturer or color or theme or all in one giant pile! I store mine by manufacturer. This works especially well for me because I am obsessed with paper - I can name you a manufacturer, paper line, and paper name just by seeing a sample. When I do a project I can envision a paper I want to use for it and I know the manufacturer right away. Because of my obsession -this system works well for me. It probably doesn't work so well if you buy and scrap more based on theme - if you sit down to scrap mostly holidays for example you probably just want to have a stack of Christmas, Halloween, etc. I store my paper in shelving units - easily accessible and out in the open. I find if I keep paper in boxes in a closet I won't use it - I tend to use whatever is easiest to find.
