If you have been following my blog you would  have see i have a spare room now (step daughter, didn't like our ideas and has moved to here mothers who has a free-er rule) any way
i have organises the craft in to places but i am stuck on how to organise my card stock.

anyone got any ideas on free storage solutions? I have lots of boxes and also a couple of big a4 folders and polly pockets but it doesn't solve the bigger sheets of cards i have and am stuck on want to do with them and no money to buy premade stuff.

here is a picture of my work desk in  the spare room btw am a craft addict and have to much creativity!!!!!!

I have no idea what you cook using card stock,but if you've tasted my vegetable soup...........!

Seriously..... You could get a length of drainage pipe,40mm or bigger...... cut a slot into it and screw it horizontally to the wall/skirtingboard. Then higher up the wall,put in a screw/nail either side in line with the ends of the pipe and a little bit of elastic between the two screw/nails. Now stand you card in the slot and secure with the elastic across the front. You could add more pipes going up the walland the tops of the card overlapping the pipe above to hide it. Or decorate/paint/label the pipe and make a feature of it.......... Ree

Hi Linz,

I'm afraid I can't come up with anything as inventive as Ree (fabby idea) or infact anything for free I'm afraid. But I did get a great see through expanding file for my 12x12 scrapbook papers really cheap off ebay. Most of mine is just piled up on a shelf above my head at the moment because the folder is bursting at the seams lol!
I'm a total magpie and just have to have pretty paper and shiny bits around me ! The only way I can justify buying more stuff at the moment though is to have a few dedicated crafting days, make tonnes and flog it on ebay or at a car boot then I can go and treat myself to lots more with the profits !
Addicted ? me ? well it could be worse I suppose! As soon as I get a chance I'll get photos of my tip, sorry workspace, to show you what I mean - it's got a habbit of just kinda taking over !

I've got a bit of down pipe (brown plastic) if that's any use - only about a metre though.
