New Idea for my Dies

Happy Saturday Everyone!

Are you ready for the Easter Bunny?  Since I won't be doing any cooking this Easter, I've had some extra time in the 'cave' this week and came up with this idea for some of my 'fancy' dies.

I bought this large Dry Erase board at Target and added magnetic strips.
Not only can I now SEE my smaller, more decorative dies ... but I can write the Company and Code # next to them to I can share that information with you when I use them on a project.    Of course the board doesn't hold ALL my dies (as you can see on the shelves below my Vagabond machine) but it does help me to remember I have these fancier dies and utilize them more often.

  I've also used different colored markers to identify different companies.
If you have seen any of the photos I've shared of my 'Crafting Cave' ... you  know that I notorious for HANGING things in plain sight so I can see what I have and use it  ... NOT buy it again because I had forgotten about it in a drawer somewhere. Don't get me wrong ... I have PLENTY 'hidden away' in drawers ... but I've tried to be sure and have them clearly labelled also ... it that is mostly Designer Paper & Stamps.  I think ALL of my embellishment type items are out where I can see them.
Well ... I'd better get back to the birthday card I need to have with me when we go to Pittsburgh, PA tomorrow.  Just wanted to drop by and share this idea with you.  

Have a wonderful holiday weekend!
