Taste The Rainbow

The organization bug has hit hard around here. The toys were just the first step. Now we have moved on to my scrapbooking supplies. You see, I have scrapbooking stuff all over the house. It's hidden under couches, in closets, Morgan's changing table, it's everywhere. I don't really have a place to call my crafting home and Ryan likes to be able to see the kitchen table on occasion. When we were organizing the toys, inspiration hit. The IKEA geniuses made their cubbies 13"X13" which is clearly large enough for 12x12 scrapbooking stuff.
Long story, longer... we bought another Expedit bookcase, this one is 2 cubes wide by 4 cubes tall. I wanted to take an awesome picture of my mounds of crafting goodness and then an get a pretty after picture. The logistics of getting all that stuff together and in one shot is daunting however. Instead I will take some random pictures as I organize and then take a happy after picture.

Today's picture is my 12 x 12 plain cardstock. I went all out and had my good buddy ROY G BIV help me get things in order. (Click on the link for more info than you ever wanted about the color spectrum. Oh and yes I am a gigantic nerd. Go big or go home, as I like to say.)

I had to take the picture from the balcony. The pile on the far right is all the stuff I didn't know what to do with. White, black, gray, cream, off white, sand, etc.

I end with an open invitation. If you are need of a particular color of cardstock, I have lots. Lots and lots. I haven't even looked at my supply of 8.5x11. Please give me a call or shoot me an email, I'm more than happy to share. (Ryan would love to see some of this stuff leave and never come back.)

You need to digital scrapbook. It saves a tone of space, time and $. I started doing it and got rid of almost all my stuff and boy am I glad. I love it.
