with the arrival of autumn, my attention has turned to the indoors, and i’ve been spending some time re-organizing our craft and creative supplies. by “our” i mean mine and my kids’, there is a lot of overlap there as you can tell from some of the projects i’ve shared.
it has been slow-going, but i enjoy this sort of thing and not just because i adore my label maker ;-)
i know some people are most creative in a messy environment, while others need absolute order before they can focus. i used to be at the latter end of the scale, til i had children. now i’m somewhere in the middle. i’ve had to let a lot of my standards slide, and in the end, i think i’m a little more relaxed/less neurotic because of it. i mean, when the labels of the bottles in my fridge didn’t all face the same way for the first time, and the world kept spinning along normally, well… it’s just interesting how things (ie. how i) have changed over the years.
but the messy situation was reaching critical, and with the fun summer behind us, a sort and tidy was in order. i drew my own images to label the bins (shh, don’t tell my neglected label maker) using adobe ideas . (adobe ideas is a free application for the iphone and ipad, and i’ve previously written about how i used it to create my blog header and other images.)
here is the pdf of my supply labels for your personal use if you wish. click the image to view the pdf (resize if needed), then print.© imadeitso, 2010.
