One thing stays pretty much the same no matter which location the crop is at… storage. We can all agree that for some of us organization is definitely not a strong point. Some struggle with just how to organize all that great stuff, while the other majority seems to have it down to a science.
I’d like you to meet Steven. Steven has been coming to Stamp & Scrapbook Expos for years, and not just one a year. He makes it to three of four Expos every year! The beautiful cards he creates first caught our eye at the crops, but we soon became mesmerized by his collection of Copic markers and then his organization of all his Copic markers! A collection this vast is something to be proud of, and it definitely calls for some serious organization.
At home something permeant might be easy to commit to, but Steven likes to attend our crops, meet his friends, and go to craft parties. He needed something that he would be able to travel with, something portable, something structured that he could have readily available. Now if this set up doesn’t entail some major systematic planning, I don’t know what would.
When considering purchasing anything for our craft items we tend to ask ourselves a few questions. First, is it practical? Second, is it expensive? Third, is it attractive? The first and second questions can be overridden by the answer to the third question. For Steven, this storage solution checked all the boxes he needed to be checked off!
Do you want to see this all packed up and ready to go to the next crop? Michelle from the Crop Crew modeled it for us.
Did this leave you with enough inspiration to start getting organized? At least I know half of you are going to either get organized or buy some more Copic markers! Both sound like a win/win for me!!
See you at the Crop!
