I thought it might be fun, after reading this morning about Mary's organizational tirade (nice work girl!) to talk a little bit about how I organize my own items. Specifically in my case all those paints and tints that come in smaller tubes and bottles.
A couple weekends ago my husband and I happeded to be at Michaels while they were having a 50% off sale on a specific brand of acrylic craft paint. Okay, in all fairness I was at Michaels for the sale, he was only there as he offered to help carry heavy stuff (thanks babe!). And its a good thing he was, with that 50% off sale plus the fact that I was literally at the bottom of almost every single bottle of acrylic paint in my small storage box, I knew it was time to restock.
- It is far less expensive than buying even those small pots of latex paint
- It is still a water based product
- I sets up great on my Mighty Boards
- The variety of colors can't be beat
Of course first and foremost, since I'm totally OCD with my organization I had to line them all up in rainbow order...
Then as I started using them I had the fantastic idea to take a little dot of the paint color and touch the top of the cover with it...
