Bits & Pieces ~

MarveLes Art Studios Blogs, Mixing It Up 4 Comments

happy weekend friends ~ 
you know how it is… you understand.  it’s stuff.  leftovers.  bits and pieces.

i have tried be organized enough to toss the chaos – uh, i mean leftovers of various projects, into bins… or should i say plastic baggies that get tossed into plastic bins…

 so i dug through the bins.  and put together the leftover trims and made them into bookmarks.  the faux black leather makes a nice background, too.

and then i found a treasure i had not been able to lay my hands on, and there it was… in the bin {bottom of the box}.  printed words on organza that i had previously fused. 

beloved.  a beautiful word.  {yes, you are!}  and the Lord does call us His beloved…

‘they’  say {just who are those people anyway?!} that one should always keep those leftover bits.  And I can only half-heartedly agree.  The problem is organizing them.  in my opinion, it’s a wasted effort if i cannot locate them within a few minutes … or “remember” where i put them?!  Hmm?

Do you have any good ideas or suggestions for storage of ‘bits and pieces?’ besides tossing them in a plastic bin?  I’d love to hear about it. 

Blessings on your day~

  1. I love your art, it's so colorful and crative.
    I use silverware trays to hold my strips and squares. I found some extra wide at Target, so it's can more than just skinny strips. I find this useful in piling them up or putting them in a drawer. 🙂

  2. Hi Leslie,
    They are just beautiful, I love lettering on fabric.
    I use silverware bins to hold my fabric. I can layer them on top of eachother, or put them in a drawer. I found some wide ones at Target that make them more usable than the skinny ones.
