I'd like to share with you how I've organized my supplies this year for Project Life. I think that part of the reason I fell behind a few times last year was how unorganized my supplies became throughout the year. This year I've decided to stay organized and keep track of all the supplies I have by setting up a special spot exclusively for PL. Last year my husband made me an organizer to hold all my cards and supplies, I've received some questions about this organizer as I posted it last year here on the blog. Well I came up with the design, told him more or less the size I needed and what items I wanted to store, and he "magically" made it happen!! Did I mention he is an awesome husband?!! He did not draw out any plans and he used recycled wood and pieces he had leftover from other projects. It measures about 3 ft wide and 1 1/2 ft deep. I told him the sizes I wanted each of the compartments to fit in the journaling cards for project life, and a few other compartments for larger supplies. I love it and it is perfect for PL and this year I vow to stay organized!! Since I have received some requests for this organizer, we are working on a plan to make and sell these, I will let you know if and when this happens, and thank you to everyone who has taken an interest in this. As I mentioned before I really want to stay organized this year, and so I am purging alot of the things that I don't use, I really just want to keep it simple and just work with my seafoam corekit and with the studio calico PL kit that I have subscribed to. Here are a few pictures of how I've organized so far.
This is the spot I have designated for my Project Life. My super amazing husband made me this new table about a week ago and I am in love with it!!! Previously I was doing all my crafting in the playroom which I had turned into my craft room, but we have a 18 month old who will be using that space soon and now I am claiming the front room and hoping to convert it into my own craft room soon, trying to convince the hubby to build a wall to make it separate from the entry way, I'll keep you posted on how it all turns out.
Here is a closer look at my project life setup and everything that I have included in my organizer so far.

and the right side
I found these at Target and I love them.
Here is a peek inside
my favorite ink pads
I love these labels to add some journaling to pictures
tags are perfect for adding details
of course my seafoam kit must have a spot all on its own
So this is how I've set up so far, I was able to go to Ikea today and I picked up not 1 but 2 Raskog carts for a few other supplies that I want to keep handy, I'll show you how I've set those up once I organize them. Thank you for stopping by and I'd love to see how you've set up for Project Life 2013!!!
