Organizing All Those Art Pencils and Pens - part two

I got a number of inquiries as to what labelmaker I used and how I chose what categories for my infinite number of art pencils and pens. So here's a bit more info:

What i love about these is how solid and heavy they are. fill them up and they will NOT tip over. Perfect for a bunch of art supplies.

I paid about $30 at Office Depot. Excited that all the empty printer cartridges I returned there paid for it! Woohoo, $2 per cartridge.

FiFiona looking adorbs on my new art studio carpet. Sweet Shy FiFi. She is really quite a small, petite cat, BUT as you can see, she looks like a pyramid when she is sitting down. Err, hmmm, she likes to eat!! And in the background you see that brown basket square? That's where all my unfinished paper paintings live til they get done. At least they are now off the floor in piles.



Blessings and Paint On!

Love it Joanie! I also can't live without my Brothers label maker. FYI, Micheals Crafts has great containers in their floral department; heavy bottomed. Do you have Michaels out there? Can't remember. Love Jane

Thanks for sharing, Joanie! I will try to find some of those clear vases for my art supplies.I have a question about the printer cartridges. Can you take a whole bag full back at once or do you take only a few at a time and accrue credit?

Hi Jane, oh yes we have Michaels still. And Joanns, Beverlys. But we still don't have a Hobby Lobby anywhere around.

Love me my labelmaker. Lol. Xo

Hi Lanis, yes i just foundnout that Office Depot takes up to 10 cartridges back per month. Then $2 credit per cartridge goes on your awards account. Good deal. Good recycling.

I now have the luxury of a whole room devoted to art and find your your organizing tips helpful and even comforting haha. No more pulling supplies out of a trunk and having them scattered all over the place. I'm inspired by your posts and wish I'd been able to take a class from you before I moved to Richmond VA. Carolyn Lewis introduced me to your "Faces" and I'm enjoying the exercise and find it sooo satisfying. Surprising!

Gosh, Denise, wish we had painted together too before you moved. Glad you are sharing creativity with Carolyn. It's fun having her in class and watching her grow leaps and bounds. Keep on creating!
