Look! See what I was doing! Oh man this has changed my life. Really, a roll of velcro sticky dots and an idea off several WOYWW desks and I'm a happy old gal. Page back through any number of work desk posts from me and that ceramic pot is on my desk filled with used pieces of Cut N Dry foam. Nice pot, once had a flowering plant of some variety in it. Naturally, I killed the plant and employed the pot by way of alleviating the guilt. But the foam is all springy and pingy and well, foamy, so it doesn't stack or behave properly and I have to spill the contents to find a suitable colour and they're all mixed up and cross contaminated and well, ARGH! So I've rescued the pieces that are obviously one colour use only, I've written on the edges with a fine tip marker and now stick it on the appropriate matching velcro dot after use. They're on a piece of mount board, so it's standing up to the handling pretty well...let's face it, I don't use these tools every day, these techniques are still outside my comfort zone really. Note: they're on a piece..not pieces..so the key here is that the tidying has a condensing result again. I fear my guilt will never end though. The ex flower-pot, ex sponge-pot - it's a gonner.
