Anyhoo-this is my new system for organizing my embellishments. I must say I have used more of my stash in the last couple of weeks than I had in the last few months! Also, it takes up far less room than having everything in its own spot. I simply took 12x12 clear cases and corralled everything by color-there's a jar of flowers, a jar of brads and buttons and a case of sparkles and tiny embellies but the rest is just tossed in the case-ribbon, journaling cards, stickers, etc. Each case is by color-red, pink, blue, green, brown, white, yellow/orange, black/silver. I am lucky enough that I found this unit that holds 5 cases on an "as is" table at Michael's a while back for $10!!! It was missing a case-Yeah Me!. The 3 drawer unit on top is full of my adhesives, tools and other necessities. Then on top of that is 3 more cases of embellies. This sits right next to my workspace.
I have always created projects by starting with color so this makes it incredibly quick to find what I need. Another benefit is I can quickly see what colors I need to add to (yellow/orange) and what color I need to stop buying for now (PINK). And it has made me branch out and use colors I neglect. Before I had shelves of jars with buttons by color, flowers by color, drawers of sparkles by color, ribbon in drawers, etc. And everything was all over the room. I love the compact storage and that is within reach. Hope this helps someone and that it was understandable. Blessings!!
