Workspace Wednesday (#3) Washi

Back in 2010, my friend Liz and I went to a Renegade Craft Fair and she was looking for washi tape...I was like I don't know what that is and I don't need another obession...fast forward to now...I have a growing stash :/

Here is my first storage (September 2012)



Shortly after, I started to store them in this (November 2012)



Then as my stash was growing, I bought this at Michaels...but that was so short-lived that I didn't even snap a picture with my rolls of washi on it :)



I was soon back at Michaels when these washi holders were on sale...I bought two extra for room to grow (July 2013).



But I hated this type of storage...it was really hard to tear a piece off.  And if I was taking a few to a crop, it was a pain to take them off the dowels.

Then a few months ago, I was looking for a basket or something...in turquoise and found this lovely platter at Michaels in the summer section.



I love how I can see them all at the same time!  And I still have a little room for some more, but for now this is my collection.

Thanks for looking!

  1. Am I being BLAMED for this new collection?!? Hahaha! You've got a good amount going though. You're still at a point where people don't randomly call you 'obsessed' or 'crazy', so good job in keeping your inventory down!;)

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. I love to read your comments! I usually reply to all comments, but I don't think a notification is given once I reply.

Also, I have been told that sometimes the comments do not show up...I do not know why that is...if it doesn't show up, then I don't see them.

Unless it is spam...I do not delete any comments. :(
