There are a few reasons why I am making a new stamp catalog/inventory. I need to be able to find them a little faster when I do get a chance to stamp so I am not wasting time rummaging through set after set. It would be nice to have a list of what I own in case we ever have another flood in our basement and need to file an insurance claim. (We didn't file one last time and I have been told that I should have.... but really, who would believe that I have THAT MUCH stuff if I just Told them the amount!) And the last reason is because it helps me be a better (read, not-duplicate) shopper.
|Spend A Day Scrapping! Is One of My Rewards|
So at this point you may be wondering what is with the flower pot and the paper flowers? Once I decided to organize my stamps, the idea snowballed into organizing all of my scrapbooking/stamping supplies. Again.
I knew I needed help and knew that the woman who owns The Scraprack company (Tiffany Spaulding) is an organizational goddess. Lo and behold she is currently holding an 8 Week Spring Cleaning Challenge! I signed up immediately (it is free) and listened to the live broadcast last Monday. Here is more info on the challenge if you are curious. You don't have to own a Scraprack to participate. I bought some of the organizational pockets a few years ago, but I don't have a Scraprack.
Part of the first week's homework is to make a Benefits/Rewards poster to hang up so you have a constant reminder about why you are going through such an ordeal and to reward yourself each step of the way.
Well, I don't have much wall space, so I made a flower pot Benefits/Reward reminder instead.
Next week's challenge with Tiffany is organizing paper. I can't wait!
Hope you are all having a fabulous weekend!
