I spent yesterday getting my crafting items in order. The first thing I did was make some chips. They were really easy and fun to make. Here's how I did it...
First I gathered all my paints
Got some 4"x6" index cards and cut them into 2"x2" sqaures
Put all my colors in order by color families from light to dark.
I gave each color a number. On the back of the cards I wrote the number color, type of paint, and brand.
On the front of each card I made a swirl of the color.
I let them dry overnight.
I punched holes in the corner of each chip, put them on a wire holder
and now I can look at the chips, pick my colors,
go to my closet and pick the bottles that correspond to the card and I'm ready to paint!
I'm a very visual person and this helps me tremendously as I don't have to take up valuable space with all of the bottles being out where I can see them.
I've been told my obsession with organization is a sickness.I do this with my fabric also. I scan the fabric, write the manufacturer, design name, yardage, where I bought it and date.
