I couldn’t stand it any longer! My craft room was so unorganized that I couldn’t craft my way out of a paper bag…….If you’re a scrapbooker, or if you have a craft room, you are no doubt always looking for the perfect storage system for all the
crap stuff we accumulate. Being a visual person, I have used the peg board system for the past few years. It works pretty well, except when I put more than one item on a peg……I can’t see what’s behind it and when I go to look I tend to knock off a few items causing me curse like a sailor………well not actually, but I may say “Darn it!” because it’s irritating.
Well my neighbor got one of these Clip it Up thingy’s. She kept going on and on and on and on…..”this thing is so great”….bla bla bla…….”I scrapped with things I had completely forgotten about”…..bla bla bla…..”I just love that everything’s at my fingertips”…….bla bla bla……..
So after hearing her go on and on and on for about a week, I thought perhaps I should look into this……..I mean it could be the answer to my messy scrap room. I contacted Clip it Up and
begged to review it they were kind enough to send me the base unit and top tier to review. When it arrived, I got all warm inside…….the box was so cute, you know the product HAD to be good right? I had my husband assemble it…….only to make him feel needed around the house……I could have done it myself, but I was probably making a 5 course dinner at the time……..NOT! This baby is tall! I was surprised how big it was and got so excited thinking how much product it would hold!!! I had seen my neighbors, but she only has the bottom section. I got busy right away loading my NEW Clip It Up! I first put the clips on, but soon realized that it’s easier to clip your product, THEN hang it on your unit.I started with Alphabets and kept on going until I ran out of clips. I only have about 5% left….pretty darn good. I need to add all my tabs now…They are very generous with how many they give you. Here you can see it sitting on my table. So much stuff! Sadly, I found things I haven’t used in many years….now that they’re in my reach, I’m sure to use them……..and I am going to USE THEM! I don’t care if they seem ugly now…….It’s all going to seem ugly in 50 years. I love how the top tier holds your smaller product and the bottom is large enough to hold 12x12 products. While on their blog, I found some great ideas. So many ideas on how to use this organizing wonder. What about storing doll clothing for your little girl? Or ribbons?I also saw that they just selected a new design team. The design team will post ideas on how to get organized……….can’t wait for that one. They’ll also post other crafty ideas too……..but right now……my mind is on organizing!
You can find lots of scraping inspiration too.
I give Clip it Up 2 thumbs up! Can’t wait for my neighbor to come over so I can go on and on and on and on………. This is gonna agree with my Reach N’ Scrap method of scraping. (only use what you can reach)
