Mist swatches revisited

Remember from my blog post from last week I made swatchs of all my mists?
Well, after I made them I found a few more bottles. And you all thought I was so organized, lol.

I used to store my mists on a shelf, but have been storing them in this basket lately. 
One problem with storing them this way is not being able to see the colours. 
So I added a colour dot to the lids.
In order to do this I punched out a tag, sprayed it with the colour and then punched a circle with my circle punch. 
I was hoping I could use the tags as I hate to waste. 
I added a sticky dot (or as I call them snot dots) to the lid of each colour and then added the misted dot. 
I picked up a few different mists and as much as I love all of the colours, I have to say the Recollections mist stinks. Stink as in, it really smells bad. Like toxic chemicals. Sad as the colour is really pretty. 

I hope you all had a creative Thursday.

  1. More hidden treasure. I am coming for a treasure hunt to your house. I don't have too many mists and they all sit on my desk, some in an old spice rack. Works great! Hope you are enjoying your week.

  2. I'm always unearthing something I forgot I had. Great job on the tags for the mists. I don't have any but if I get some I know how to get them organized. That spice rack sounds like a great idea.

  3. i store mine in a basket and i LOVE the color dot on the lid. perfect idea!!!

  4. Such a clever idea, Tracy! Interesting about the Recollection mists being smelly, quite a deterrent.

  5. This is such a neat idea. I am going to label my Ciao marker ends today - so that I can see the numbers on the end caps :-) Have a great weekend.

  6. Love your organization. But that stinks that the ink stinks! I hate things like that, it gives me such a headache!

  7. Making swatches sounds like a great idea. Sorry about the ink smell..the colors do look pretty, though :)

  8. What a great idea! I have never used Mists....I tend to be a big chicken about trying new things and just stick with what I know.....really boring right?!?!?!

  9. Great idea. I've been uncovering a few things in my room lately too.


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
