I was watching some mercytiara youtube videos ( love her) if you haven't checked her out, you should. Anyway, I noticed she has a bowl of buttons all mixed together. All of my buttons are organized by color. I kind of like the idea of mixing it all and sifting through. It would make the process faster possibly. Also, the way Shimelle keeps all of her little die cuts etc. in a glass bowl. I'm thinking of heading this way. I would like to know if people find this easier. Thanks

I keep my buttons in a muffin tin, but they are not organized within it. I like them all jumbled up. I like that they're in the tin, though, because they are in little shallow groupings that i can rifle through more quickly than a big deep bowl or jar. Also since they're in the tin, I can organize them briefly if I'd like.

I have most of my buttons separated by colour and a few of the basic grey sets mixed together. I love the way the separated buttons look on my self in my scraproom, however I find I used the ones that are mixed together a lot more often.

I find that I use my embellishments more when they're separated. I sort my buttons by color. It takes me a lot less time to find the exact button I want to use that way.
Time is valuable to me so the more I can save the more scrapping gets done.

I keep all my buttons all mixed together in an old crystal sugar bowl. I must admit these days I tend not to use them very often but I'm not sure if that's because they're not so much my style anymore or if it's because they just look too pretty to disturb.

I keep a lot of my like products together and I love that I can find something I might not have otherwise considered. Keeping my stuff like this works for me because I like to check out my options before I ccommit.

I mix a lot. I don't like my LOs being too matchy matchy.

Remember that there's no right or wrong to scrapbooking. Just creat what's makes you happy!
