When I returned home after teaching a class the other day, I could not find one of my tools I use for card making. I was devastated. Sorting through the box of “stuff” I realized I was not organized. What an awful feeling! Where was the tool? This causes me anxiety and dollars if I have to replace the tool. I knew I had to find a way to get organized with my tools so this did not happen again.
Here is the Toolbox I had my husband build for me.
No matter the task, the Toolbox makes it easy to find the tool I want and makes my card making more enjoyable. All items are within easy reach. One item I use continuously is the Tombow glue. The glue is stored upside down in the Toolbox so it is always ready to use.
The Toolbox sits on my desk while I am prepping for a class and sits at the end of the table when I am teaching a class. At the end of my card making or class I re-load the items into the Toolbox and at a glance can see if anything is missing. There is also a space on one side that holds miscellaneous packaged items along with a shelf underneath large enough to hold my scrubber, paper piercing mat, etc.
