Knowing how chapters can sometimes unfold messily, I wanted to create a place where I can share my own life’s journey.
Including all the things that I love AND all the things that I have learned. We can then fearlessly tackle this road called life....together. And hopefully the ending of YOUR story is one of victory...loaded with joy.
I love organization! I love being able to find all of my supplies. I especially love knowing what ink colors I own so that I can find them quickly. How about you?
The best way that I found to keep track of my ink colors is to swatch them and keep them all together. Jennifer McGuire came up with this idea (because she is a genius) and I love it. I created my own ink company downloads for you.
I have also created 2 videos for you –

I keep my mini ink pads in trays from OrganizeMore. The dots on the blue inks are the little swatches that I made for the minis – I am in the process of redoing all of my inks. I stamp with a solid stamp and punch out with a 1/2” circle punch.
Check out this video. It will show you how to swatch your mini ink pads.
