Carmen has been building up her collection of Stamp-n-Storage products over time, and this is how things looked in December!

She posted her pictures on Splitcoaststampers in the Stamp-n-Storage Gallery. Here’s what she said in her post, and she makes a VERY good point about how being organized is really helping her creativity and productivity:

Look…I admit to being OCD. Not the good kind where my house is always clean, but the one that tends to COST me money! That being said, I don’t regret ONE RED CENT that I’ve spent with SNS. I’ve been ‘collecting’ since August. I have another 5 pieces on the way, which will pretty much finish my craft room off by January.

At first, my sister (the one who introduced me to this insanity..I mean, ‘hobby’) didn’t understand why I was spending money on storage instead of stamps. I explained it to her like this: I wasted over half my creative time trying to find stuff. 90% of the time, I would get distracted and end up forgetting about what I was working on, etc. I also found myself buying duplicates of embossing power, embellishments…even STAMPS…because everything was so scattered!

When I bit the bullet and purchased my first products from SNS, I saw a difference IMMEDIATELY. It saves me time and money and it frees me up to think creatively and not interrupt the flow because I can’t find the right ink!!!

Btw…want to guess where my sister stamps now????? You got it!! Right here!
