Whats on your Wednesday Workdesk #300 {#theendisinsight}

Happy Wednesday! and welcome to my mess! If you want to play along with us you can find the link up at our hostess Julia's blog here.   

 I have been attempting to organize my die sets for the last month or so. 
 because, I have a lot of them and I like to shop. under the box of clear pockets you'll see a leg and an arm mask sticking out. that was from one of the VSN samples I made on monday. along with some extra hearts that have not been made into anything yet and an extra cup diecut while the tea card from last saturday was under construction I had tinkered with the idea of doing two cups on the card but, the scale was still off.

ack, found a duplicate set of dies. (as disorganized as I was with this process its pure luck there was not more of them) I started emptying the clear boxes and cutting the magnet sheets in half and tucking those into the memorex pockets. (this takes up way less room) 

I know this is blurry ( sorry  I am fighting a sinus cold and my insides feel like Mexican jumping beans from the medicine) (so I guess that translates to I cannot hold my phone still) I don't know if you remember this but, I had a third white metal basket up on top of these cabinets with a wood basket on the floor with more dies in them. 

all of the smaller sets are mostly in these drawers now ( 'cept the basket still on the table) and they are sorted loosely by what they are, circles, squares, rectangles, all the hearts are together now ( and I have a lot more heart dies that I realized) and flowers are together ect. and I think I may start looking for another one of these drawers that hold the bigger than this size. I have one in the closet holding A-7 & 6 1/2" square (and down) envelopes so, I know they made them once upon a time its just a matter of how long will it take. and at that point I may be able to move all the larger die sets to drawers with no plastic boxes at all. ( it really is a space saver for me ) now, to tackle the clear stamps which have been breeding in the dark ( haha) I recently got a MISTI and I am also going to un-mount my rubber double stamp floral sets and see how that goes.

OK (update I am DONE you can see the rest of the after shots here:)

You are very organized and is fun to see how you are doing it! Thanks for stopping by earlier, and I hope to see you at VSN!

You certainly are getting those dies whipped into shape! I'm really impressed. Based on an earlier post of yours I ordered some magnet sheets and cases. I plan to get organized too, but no one should hold their breath... I've got lots of other stuff to do though. Judy #74

Hi Stacy,

You are doing a great job organizing your dies! I have mostly embossing folders and have them in a suitcase I bought from Michaels (nothing fancy at all).

Thanks for visiting me already!
Happy belated 300 WOYWW

Oh, I see you have some gorgeous snowflake dies! I am wondering what brands they are? You can't have too many snowflake dies? Can you?
You are right about those Prima doll stamps. They are a real challenge to use. That's why I haven't felt compelled to buy too many of them :)

Eliza said...

Gosh I am reding the posts backwards as I have now seen the finished result of all your hard work, brilliant. Now to organize myself LOL I don't think that is going to happen anytime soon with all the work I have to get through.

Belated WOYWW 300 greetings
Eliza & Yoda
