Organizing My Mists

About a year ago I had one mist. Maya Road Silver. Life was easy, things were more simple. Well this is not the case anymore. The mists are starting to get out of hand. I can't tell the difference between Hydrangea Blue and Caribbean Blue. So I cut some good cardstock 2inches x 4 inches and sprayed each of my mists and of course labeled each tag. Pretty simple and now they are hanging on a ring in my space. I can't believe how handy this is, I use it each time I decide I need a little spritz.

Just in case you haven't seen these.... mine came in the mail the other day and I must say that they may be my most favorite Elle's Studio product ever. I love them that much. I think I need more and I haven't even started using them yet. That's crazy isn't it? But you know what I am talking about, don't you?

Great idea! I've only got one mist... it's yellow meringue from Tattered Angels. Those tags are just gorge!!!

Fantastic idea. I really must do the same, although I've only got about 10 colours or so.
Just an idea, since you've got so many... could you possibly show us the comparison between some of the colours that are quite similar like you were suggesting with the blues. I'm particularly interested in the difference between the cream/yellow mists. I know they always show you the colour on the bottle etc but I think there's nothing like seeing them actually sprayed on paper.
Or perhaps how they compare on different coloured card?

Great idea Samantha. I'm always scouting new ideas to share with others (of course giving credit where credit is due) that will help them organize their own spaces. I hope you don't mind, but I would like to share a link to your post on my organizing blog in the next few days. Connie

Great idea and they look cool too. Reminds me of paint chips or samples, which I think are always fun.

Can't wait to see how you use your tags.
