The Countdown Begins...

It's less than a week until August 1st and the start of our Scrapping The Music Blogiversary party!  We are getting super excited for our month-long celebration, and we hope you will be joining us!  We are going to have a special format for the month of August which will include more ways to win and more songs for inspiration, plus a fun guessing game!  Yeayyy!!!

I've been working behind the scenes on the Scrapping The Music stuff, so I don't have any art to share right now; but I do have a new system for organizing my embellies!  I sorted them into these boxes by color.  Here are a few pics:




Warm Neutrals
 I also have a box each for Black/White, Earthtones, Brights and Pastels.  It just makes me happy to look at everything organized like this!

and what's really cool is they fit perfectly into this tote box that I got at Michael's awhile back...!

I brought the tote to my crop on Saturday and it worked fabulously! One word of caution tho - these boxes work great for larger embellies and they are super cheap, which is a bonus!  But they don't shut real tight, so I wouldn't necessarily use them for anything tiny like beads or brads (that's why you see the tape - making sure they stay shut).

I also took a new pic of my journal shelf, which is really starting to fill up!  I've got 35 completed journals now (since 2007)...

Oh, and also, I've been reading this book and LOVING it!...

I bought it a long time ago, but just got around to reading it.  It is exactly what I need to hear right now.  Soooo helpful.

Alrighty, that's it for now, but I will be back soon with another update.  Thank you SO much for visiting!

Hi Michelle, thanks for the fun post. I love how you made each organizer certain colors, they look so yummy!! Lots of goodies in there that I liked.

WOW, that is a lot of journals, good for you. I like the way they look altogether on the shelf.

Congrats on next month's anniversary, can't wait to see what you have done for it!!

Happy Friday, enjoy the weekend!

I LOVE that book!! I got it way back when it first came out and I was just starting my Recovery. Such a wonderful help! She also has another one, whose name escapes me at the moment. Looking forward to the blogiversary!!

So neat and tidy! Great idea--it lets you see what you've got AND find what you have! I've organized smaller fabric scraps in a similar way. Now to do the same with embellishments!

Woohoo on STM blogiversary party! Fun!

This is sooooo what I need to do... the color sorting makes way more sense than my current plan.
