This is what I have been doing!!

There has been no card making here today...this is what I have been doing!

I was sick of all my gems and pearls all over the place not in their packets and not in their containers so I had an idea to sort them.


And a closer look...
Now I should have no problem finding what I am looking for or I should never run out again because I can clearly see what I have and have not got!!
