I've been having "fun" (undergoing self imposed torture) trying to organize my scrapbook supplies.
I suffer from the delusion that items are easier to remember and retrieve that way.
So far I'm failing miserably due to lack of space and an inability to decide how to organize.
My first attempt at paper organization is a compromise.
I am using manufacturer, favorite color and pattern categories.
- neutral (kraft, black, grey and white based papers)
- Sassafras Lass
- Crate Paper
This all came about after a conversation I had several months ago with other scrapbookers right in the comments section of this very blog.
I made the bold statement that organizing paper into ROYGBIV is too time consuming and obsessive.
Then a favorite scrappy friend admitted she loves playing around by organizing her stash and that it it's her favorite way to get page inspiration.
Well alrighty then. I'll give it a go.

And SO time consuming when you have to cut them out yourself.
Not the best use of my time.
It's good to review what I have but the basic problem- too much crap- hasn't been solved.
Also- the first 4 boxes finally made their way over to Materials For The Arts- a great local charity that does just as the title says.
Here are my first 2 Project Life pages for 2013.
Thanks for stopping by!
