If it's Wednesday again, it must be time to reveal what I'm working on through the contents of my desk. If this means nothing to you then go to Julia's place and find out. So anyway, there's my trusty pink spotty mug - which I think gets into my desk picture just about every week. My new pink mat (now becoming increasingly grubby) is in full view, and so are my trusty basics - chalk inks, gel pens, Tim Holtz scissor and fine tip bottle of PVA. Oh, and glasses of course ... you squint a lot more as you age I've found!
You will correctly deduce that I'm working on another journal page - just one of the small ones this time, and this is going to be the final page in the process of working through something difficult. As you can see I'm about to "let it go" and move on ... You will also see scraps of patterned paper. Now I've got a lot of these because I'm also a scrapbooker, and have finally found a brilliant use for them now that I've taken up art journalling!
Thought I'd go in for another swing - the right this time, and show you the slim boxes in which I keep paper. Originally I stored all my paper by colour group, but gradually learned to buy papers not one sheet at a time but several from a particular range. Now I mainly file my purchases in scrap kits which I make up, and anything else goes in these boxes, mostly by manufacturer or range, and the last few still by colour. Specialised is reserved for holiday type papers such as Christmas, or baby boy/girl and so on.
My current storage obsession is how to make a home for my growing family of promarkers? If you have any interesting solutions I'd be glad to hear about them!
