Getting organized with Billy

Share this:

I worked in the booth of Globecraft Memories at Mega Meet in Novi recently and it was so nice to see so many familiar faces. Thank you to each and every one of you who stopped by to say ‘hi.’

It’s been crazy busy lately making samples for design teams and classes but I’m lovin’ every minute of it! Learning a lot as I go and so thankful for everyone’s patience. I never in my wildest dreams 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.

One good thing to come from all the craziness is organization. I really had to organize my supplies so I could keep all the product separated for each team once it started arriving. I knew I had too many tables in my room and not enough shelving so made a trip to Ikea for three Billy Bookcases and 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 was amazed that I 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 is so nice to sit in here and 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 you in another post if it works.
