Bella Madness!!!!



I am in desperate need of some organization. I just got a new order of Bella's, tiddlyinks, sentiments, etc. in the mail today and I got another one two weeks ago. My binder is full and these are going to get stuffed in a drawer. I need to come up with a method. I know that I need another binder and will eventually get another one. But for now, I need to do something. My sister-in-law,Vicki, who is my partner in crime when it comes to ordering Bellas has a pretty good system of organization. I just have to sit down and do it. She has all of her Bellas listed on a spreadsheet and has them numbered. Each Bella in her binder coordinates with the number on the spreadsheet. All that she has to do when she wants a bella is to go down her list, get the number and go to her binder. Easy. But it sounds like so much work to get started, but then again it's a lot of work trying to figure out what I have, especially when it comes to the sentiments. If you have a method of organization, I would sure like to know. Please drop me a line. I am drowning in Bella's. Help.

Eekk! Thats alotta bellas...but I'm not one to talk, lol. I keep them in da bindahs too, but in categories. So I have all the birthday ones together, all the wedding ones together, sports, hobbies, professionals, shopping etc. I just put a sticky note on the binder whats in it, because as one category grows, I shift them around. I only get about 7 sheets in there with them being on EZMount. Good luck with it all!

Ok, I have the best organizational tip EVER. What you want to do is take all of them, shove them in an envie, and mail them to me. ;)

In reality, mine are all just shoved in a drawer, so I'm of no help... but I am slightly jealous of your new toys!

What a pile of great stash. Hey after i put my Bella's and Riley's on Cling Foam i store them in clear Standard Size CD Cases. Depending on the size of the image i can get a few stamps in one CD Case. Works great!
If you want to know more let me know and I'll take some pictures to show ya.
Love your work!
