inspiration monday



how about some organization inspiration?!
i was skipping through you-tube and found this quick and clever idea for storing all of those paper punches! what i really love about this solution is that each punch is visible.....unlike mine which are stored in a basket.....who knows what punches are on the bottom?!!
(and here's another idea using curtain rods here!)

watch this video in larger format here.

Wow that was cool inspiration. I have my punches in a drawer in a roly cart but that was neat how you can see them all. Thanks for sharing. Have a great Monday!

Brilliant! Great Monday Inspiration, lori! Thank you!

OMG. That is a whole lot of punches!! Expensive ones too! Like Martha Stewarts and Xtra large sized Fiskars and what could possibly be the entire line of EK Successes.

That's a lot of Michael's coupon! Must have taken here years (ha)

I left for my 3 week visit, and when I came back, my studio was a disaster!( I think the cat did it) lol, what a great inspiration for getting reorganized.....again........

on my nose ;)

Thanks for passing on such cleverness. My studio needs all the help it can get! Not so many punches, but you've got to start somewhere...

What great organization ideas. I love it. Now if I only had a room large enough to do something like that, it would be great. Plus I think I need some more punches added to my small collection too. lol. Thanks for sharing.

Some great ideas in those videos, Lori!

Of course, as always happens to me when I "just visit youtube for a second", I couldn't leave after watching only the two you suggested.... well, jeepers, there was a paper flowers tutorial, then one with tips for making a pocket card, and another with quick and easy gifts to make, and...

I finally snapped out of it and remembered the list of things I need to do today... but first a quick snack. Chocolate, maybe?

Hugs!
Crystal :-)

Hey Lori!

Boy, those girls are super organized!

I'll have to keep this in mind for after Hubby builds me some walls! Even though I don't have many punches, the rods plus "S" hooks, would be a great way to store anything that hangs, like all of our special edged scissors... More walls first, rods second! hee hee hee!

Thanks for finding and sharing such great ideas with us!

Love your storage. Mine are jammed in drawers and baskets (I like yours better). ;)

I'm fairly certain you have every punch created BTW. :D
