Organize your Stuff: Week 18 (round 3): Tools & Adhesives Part 2

Here is my layout for the Week:

Used my favorite tool from Tuesday for this one! The Tim Holtz tonic piercer put the glue dots on my Thickers…Creative Me knows that supposedly they have changed, but too many Thickers have fallen off my pages, so now they all get double duty adhesive! Also, I used the piercer to pierce holes for the brads in the middle of the flowers. Page 2 in this 2 page layout was inspired by the Challenge Sketch for January from the 2 Peas Calendar Girls.

Now, drum roll please! Adhesives are finally corralled! It was the wild, wild west here for a while (and not the weird Will Smith movie version with all the strange mechanical inventions). We admit to putting off the inevitable, but PA Me kept saying… I know the perfect solution, so when things calm down, it will only take a minute… so let’s do it later!

The POW is pretty sure that PA Me could have been a Jedi (this is not the droid you are looking for…) except that it take work, dedication, and actually showing up for Jedi class. So, last night, after working at my local scrap book store, OCD Me was all jazzed with organized scrapbook energy and was ready to tackle the probably five minute task of organizing adhesive. (OCD Me gets terribly frustrated by PA Me, because most of the time these tasks are rather simple and not terribly time consuming.)
Step 1: Get hanging basket from old scrap room desk and bring down stairs.

Step 2: Hang basket in Expidit bookcase so that there are 2 levels for adhesives… then realize that the basket is too wide for the space provided.

The POW then spent the better part of an hour moderating between OCD Me who wanted to find a new solution, and PA Me who had thrown in the towel and wanted to get some quality DVR time in with the TV since Fabulous Spouse was out of town. The POW finally put her foot down and reminded PA Me that yes Fabulous Spouse was out of town. That means that the Laundry Fairy was out of town too. So PA Me had a choice. Play with OCD Me and a little glue or do laundry for five. Amazingly, with negotiation skills like that, PA Me had linked arms with OCD Me and the two of them set off to create adhesive order (maybe I am wrong, and it is the POW who is the real Jedi Master).
SO, now adhesives are done, my layout is done, and we are ready for next week-Chipboard on Tuesday! …off to tackle that laundry. Darned missing laundry fairy!
