Recently, I have been thinking a lot about reorganizing my craft room and simplifying the card making process. I say thinking, because there has been very little action. That is only because I am a perfectionist, and it has to be perfect when I finally do it. And I can't decide what I want. It's kind of like shopping for toothpaste. Why can't you buy regular toothpaste anymore? It worked just fine for me during my childhood. Plain ol' Crest or Colgate in a tube. Why did they have to stop making it and come up with all this other anti-plaque, cavity fighting, whitening, breath freshening, blah, blah, blah? Isn't that what toothpaste is supposed to do? Sorry for my digression. But I feel better now.
A few weeks ago while 'thinking' about my room and supplies, I had a "Duh!" moment. I decided to cut a whole bunch of card bases so they would always be ready when I wanted to make a card. Now, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that this simplifies the process. I am just wondering why it took me so long to think of doing it. Especially since the paper I use for my card bases is the only thing I use that particular paper for. It's just common sense. Something I pride myself for having a good amount of. It's embarassing to think it took me so long to figure it out.
So now I have a neat little stack of card bases sitting on my work table, and it is so nice to have them at the ready.
I just have to figure out where I am going to store them!
