About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

Day 16 - Distressing Organisation!!!

Evening all!! So, after feeling rough last night, I woke up with a full blown cold. So I didn't head out to parkrun this morning - which in a way was good because my OH came back just after 9 saying it had been cancelled!! Too much ice on the course!! It made me feel less guilty about still being tucked up in bed. 
I didn't spend all day in bed. I decided to sort out my Distress Inks. I do love organisation - - so this has been a totally planned operation!! I haven't decorated the Stamps Away MDF Ink holders as I'm not sure what look I want yet, but I did finish labelling all the ink pads - both with the colour and the name. And now the collection is complete (except for the new Picket Fence that is finally coming out this year!!) I have treated myself to new cut and dry foam.
Each colour has always had its own piece of cut and dry foam, but some of them were a little worse for wear, so I invested in 2 new sheets. Each little container is numbered and holds six pieces of foam - and on each ink pad, I have put the number of the container - and on each piece of foam I have put the initials of the colour.
And of course, I have completed my Distress Ink colour sheet so I can colour match when working on my projects. As well as this, I have been working on a card today - but as it's for someone, I cannot share it yet!!
Back tomorrow!!
