Creativity and Organization

Is organization the antithesis of creativity, or does an organized space encourage it? I go with the latter. When I know where my stuff is, I can concentrate on what I'm doing. And did I mention that I LOVE IKEA??? Now, it's not all about particle board furniture any more...a recent trip there netted me a huge bag full of organizational tools and the whole lot cost less than 60 bucks. I bought a rail system (designed for the kitchen) and accompanying bins and baskets that is just perfect for storing crafty items -- and getting them off my precious work surface. Check out my newly organized space.

The Big Apple Stampers

Artists, stampers, scrappers, soapmakers, friends.

Textured Heart Card

The chipboard heart was covered with joint compound, then stamped while still wet. After drying, I rubbed it with a variety of inks.
