We just got back from vacation-that's one reason I haven't posted in a while. It was pretty hectic in the week or two before, getting everything ready, and then we drove from Indiana to Nevada and then to California. I know. Crazy, right? On the trip my son took over the camera and here is a picture he took, I believe, in Colorado.
And here is one of the places we visited in Las Vegas. I'm sure History Channel fans will recognize this.
We didn't see any famous people but we saw a lot of interesting ones!
So the nestabilities. I tried several different methods to organize them. I tried the magnetic folders and the cd cases but nothing worked for me. Then someone at Split Coast Stampers posted this method and I tried it. I love it. It works out perfectly for me. I used some mat board to create some dividers in the box, including one long one on the side for the bigger dies. I used mat boards to put the dies on, and used the magnetic business card things that Staples sells. I cut one in half for each board. On sets that have a really small piece in the center, I put an extra square of magnet there so the small pieces stayed put. Then I made some tabs by printing out the names on card stock and folding and gluing them over the boards that hold my dies. Here's how it looks. I took these with my phone so the quality isn't great but you get the idea.
