I have been struggling to manage my card stock and other paper collection. Everytime I want some paper I would have to go through different piles of bags where I used to store them. Not only it was irritating, this way of storing papers damaged those lovelies and took a lot of space in my, already cramped, craft cupboard. Finally I thought of taking matters in my hands… 😉

I went and bought myself two cardboard box files and a lot of (50 to be precise 😀 ) transparent sheet protectors. Organised and re-organised papers and finally I was happy with my decision. I could also find a lot of paper scrap which I had hoarded for long and could be used… These are now safely and neatly placed in one of the protectors and are easily accessible. Take a look at my new, organised paper mountain 😀


Nice, hun? I should have taken “before” picture too… Well, now not possible 😉 Now, let me show you some inside story…





Well, I am quite happy with myself… ‘pat on my own back’ … Hee hee…

Let me tell you something else. For quite sometime I wanted to buy acrylic blocks for stamping but was unsble to procure it. These are available Online but the shipping cost was more than the block itself. So I decided to do something about it. I went to a neighbourhood Glass and Hardware shop, got a couple of 12″ thick glass blocks cut and got the edges rounded. Voila, my stamping blocks were ready. He gave me one free too as it was a waste for him. So in 110 Rupees I got three glass stamping blocks. I know, I will have to be a little careful while using it since it is glass but for now my need is satisfied. Take alook at my new acquisition.


So, that’s all for now. Will be back soon.

  1. Great going with your organization! 🙂
    Why glass blocks? You get acrylic blocks from the local stationer….atleast we do here in Chennai. Thatz how I got mine….havfta be real careful with the glass ones. Enjoy! 🙂

    • Yaar, I tried for the acrylic blocks with some stationers around but they had no clue about what it was. So this is an interim arrangement till I get acrylic blocks 🙂 But you are absolutely right, have to be careful while handling these blocks…

      • hey! Lemme know if you want me to send it to you by courier! Would appreciate some sizes otherwise my local stationer has some standard sizes. No worries! 🙂
