So i have a ton of artist pads of all different types, and the space I'm in does not have a closet (boo), what I'm wondering is how do you store your art pads?

I'm working on reorganizing my space and making more room for things, and i need a better storage solution than what i've been working with.

any ideas?

Do you have space for a standing wire shelving unit?  I keep my craft supplies in one (actually two) of those.

i've got a book case and a dresser, but the pads dont really fit well in the bookcase since i have the large size. they rather stick out when i put them in there.

Ahhh, I see. The only thing I can think of is maybe clamp them with large alligator clips and hang them on the wall.

I prop the big ones against the wall behind one of my desks and the small ones go in one of those wire file organizers at the end of my desk.  I like the idea of clipping them and hanging them on the wall too Smiley

I'm in a TINY apartment so I feel ya on the space thing! My 16x24s are actually behind my couch against the wall with my giant portfolio, and my art pads 11x17 and smaller are on a shelf or stacked neatly on top of my scanner or on the book shelf. (I have a lot of art pads!) I used to have a wire mail sorter and i turned it on its side. I even have one in my purse at all times.

I think I'm just proving how much of a supply hoarder I am... lol.

If there was a patch for ATC addiction, I would probably try to decorate it and mail it to someone.
