A fresh new year means a fresh new start in my scrap room! I like to clean up and file everything from the previous year's business and usually this means taking a look at how I've stored and stocked my supplies in addition to how I have kept my business records! This month I'll devote my blog to organization so over the next few weeks I'll share with you how I organize (or NOT) all things scrapbooking/papercrafting and record keeping!

How lucky am I to have a handy husband that loves to build things! We sat down together and thought out what I would need to help me organize my CTMH products. He built a nice worktable with lots of shelves for albums, cardstock and even all my inkpads!

Here is a close up of my ink pad slots. I group my inks in Seasons vertically with the Basic Colors across the bottom row. I can fit 3 pads into each slot. I also store the same color marker beside each pad. When I go to retreats or crops I do have the Close To My Heart Ink Organizer and Carry Case which I LOVE! It is a 'must have' if you don't have one.
I sort my cardstock in color groups.... basics, blues, greens, reds, etc. I can lay my cardstock flat on the shelves. There are cardstock slots on each side of the desk but I use the slots on the right side for my extra page protectors, 8 1/2 x 11 white and colonial white cardstock, envelope flats and miscellanous other items.
My next post will be my actual worktable. No, I don't work on the desk. I need more room than that! Here is my worktable - honest truth - as it looks at this very moment. I'll clean it up and show you how I START out working on new projects. I always like to start with a clean slate. (and just in case you were wondering.... my workstation is NOT always that neat!)
Stay tuned this month for some tips and ideas! Leave me a comment on your Favorite way to organize! I love reading all ideas for storage!
