Hello We R Fans! Kimberly Crawford here for some storage and organization ideas to share. There are so many amazing We R Memory Keepers tools available, we definitely need great storage solutions, because we have to have all the tools!
Hands down, my favorite new storage unit is the We R Memory Keepers Bloom! Not only is it adorable, but it also holds all those small doo-dads that never seem to have a good home. Ephemera fits in the bottom trays. Small flowers, buttons, 3D embellishments, and erasers fit in the middle trays. I even found that my Craft Knife and Swivel Craft Knife refill blades fit perfectly in a tray. Simply twist the top of the unit closed and this storage fits nicely on any desk top.
I did want to mention the mat underneath the Bloom. It is the mat from the We R Memory Keepers Template Studio. The Template Studio is fantastic, but so is this cutting mat! It is a wonderful surface that I leave on my desktop all the time. I often get asked what mat I use when filming my video tutorials-the grey color is perfect and keeps my color balance in check while filming. Form, function, and looking good!
For a majority of my tools, I love baskets. You can find cute baskets just about anywhere, which makes it easy to keep your tools in one place. In this basket, I keep my punches, but if you look closer, you can also see that I store the directions with the tools. Keeping the instruction booklets in one place makes my life so much easier. We R Memory Keepers instructions are well-written and contain so many helpful tips and measurements, I do not want to misplace even one.
On the top, I keep my punch boards. Again, keeping the tools that work together in one place makes creating easier.
More basket storage. This is especially useful when the tool comes with so many wonderful accessories, like the Happy Jig! Look at all the wonderful colors of wire, including wire that looks like baker’s twine! When I want to use my tools, having them all in one place allows me to get creating, not digging through boxes and piles.
Finally, having my tools close at hand is important. I keep a couple of coffee mugs right next to me on my desk. All the new Crafter’s Essentials tools fit nicely. Plus, having this mug from someone special, always makes me smile.
