Well I really didnt know what I would end up buying so didnt really have a big plan for organization, then I got hooked on dies and look out. Storage was a big problem. Sadly I didnt separate by category before taping them down onto manilla file folders and attaching with magnetic tape then sliding inside of clear sleeves and into a 3 ring binder, boy are they heavy and they really got pretty wide. However, now I dont know whats in what binder and have to flip through them to find something I want to use. I hate to waste the magnetic tape (its not cheap) and redo so dealing with it.
Oh, I have to tell you my friend had taken art classes years ago and I was telling him about what you said about the nibs and all. He handed me a little sanding file like you said comes together with the nibs and a Taiwan nib like you were talking about. Now I can try that too.
Well my new friend, thanks for all your help and ideas and tips, I appreciate them very much. On my way to do more re-organizing, inks now LOL. Take care.
Make do thread never fizzles out. Me and a couple of the other girls keep it alive. Don't be shy posting on the thread.
I have my dies in CD cases. I don't own that many. I have an electronic cutter so I don't have to buy all the dies. You know what is sad? I am thinking of selling some of my electronic cutters because I want more Nestabilities. I think I will use them more than my die cutters.
That is so sweet your friend gave you the sanding file and a nib. I hope you enjoy working with them.
Don't feel bad about reorganizing. My home is getting a huge reorganization this week. I already did my craft room a couple of weeks ago. My DH organized all his craft items last night.
