I had been piling my stamps into a large drawer and then I will fish around looking for the one I’m looking for. It was not efficient at all. Then I pulled open my Alex drawer unit and realized I was storing notebooks in a flat file. What?!?! I know, craziness. So, I pulled all the notebooks out and put them on a bookshelf and lined up all my woodblock stamps, graphic side up, in the top drawer. All of a sudden, I am using them more often and can find exactly the one I want, when I want it. Even handle stamps stand up when the drawer is closed so those sit along the edges.
Feeling the need for some of your own stamps, visit The Shop. I’ve been restocking!

Great idea Ana. Not sure I have enough yet for a whole drawer but I like your collection. Have you ever thought of sourcing and selling stamp pads in your store? I just got my Special Delivery stamp and having a hard time finding an actual stamp pad at my local retailers. For those of us new to your stamps I would be glad to pay for a stamp pad as well. Just a thought.
Its a challenge to find the right stamp pad for your needs. I still waffle about them. When I find THE PERFECT PAD, I will definitely add them to the shop.
