When I designed all of the cards you've seen in this series, my work table was piled and cluttered with ink, paper, tools, embellishments, all sorts of creative "stuff". I realize that sometimes such clutter can be more of a distraction than an inspiration, but often come up with new ideas when bits and pieces of projects end up lying close to one another quite by accident. I also challenge myself to use up those bits and pieces while I'm creating, and I love coming up with a large variety of samples from a limited quantity of supplies.
You may be thinking "Hey, you didn't have those silver glitter brads on any of the other cards", and you'd be right. But I had received them in an order that day, and they hadn't yet found their way into their storage drawer. (Confession time: A lot of my supplies never find their way back to their rightful spots, and that is one of my weaknesses. I do need to be more tidy and organized, but I hope it doesn't hamper my creativity.)
