After organizing and clearing out your Lotions and Potions,
Do you know what you have?
Do you have a way to keep track of them?
Did you learn you had double purchased some L&P's?
Here are a few tips to help you keep track of your L&P's.
Write it down.
Use composition book to keep things in order. This one has a few sections. One for books and music I want to buy, another for stores I want to visit.(Most requiring some drive time.), and another for purchases of L&P's I have made.
This section helps me to remember what
I already own so that I am not purchasing duplicates.
You can swipe the color of your L&P's directly into the journal. This works great for things like Liquid Pearls, Puff Paints, Stickles or other glitter glues. A small line of the color followed by the name. Allow to dry before closing, and your done.
Before you get all impressed by that, I had made plenty
of duplicate purchases before making this journal.
But, the best thing I did was to finally Write It Down.
Make a Swatch
This swatch sample is for Shimmerz paints.
At the Little Blue House we needed a sample of the
colors of Shimmerz that we carry so we used some
muslin cut into 3"x6" strips. Painted a sampling of the Shimmerz
and labeled with a folded piece of cardstock.
Then we strung them on a book ring.
For home I did the same.
I only have a few colors but I cut extra swatches
because I know me, I'll be buying more. I like Shimmerz.
