I knew it was going to happen . . . It was inevitable.
With each new doll I welcome home, I had to find a place to store another accessory, hands and a booklet.
I only have so much space to work with.
And at some point, I was going to run out of room.
I’m not complaining.
I love dolls and the added accessories & hands that come with them.
But I can’t add anything more to my dolly drawer.
It’s to the point, that whenever I want to change a doll’s hands or comb her hair I dread opening the dolly draw for fear of everything tumbling out.
My Dolly Dream Room
My dwindling space, got me thinking about ways to organize my dolls’ accessories & extra dolly goodies.
And I soon found myself daydreaming of what my ultimate dolly room would look like.
A huge room, dedicated to my passion . . . dolls.
A place to store all my dolly clothes and accessories.
I’d even have a section to store all my dolly related things like books, tools & art supplies.
My own dolly hangout!
Though I’m painfully aware that my dream isn’t coming true anytime soon.
I still want to make small strides to help it along.
So my 1st step, is finding a solution for all my doll hands.
Getting the Hands in Order
There are many different types of containers to keep dolly hands in.
But I remember a video by Eileen of Dolly Treasures.
And in the video, there was a cute box with compartments.
Inside the compartments were all the Little Mischiefs’ hands, neatly stored away.
I liked the box.
It was reasonably sized and cute.
And I could find a similar box at the Container Store.
I did a quick estimate on how many hands I currently had and how many I may have in the future.
That estimated number gave me an idea on how many slots my box needed to have.
I choose a Clear Box Compartment.
It has 18 slots.
More than enough for my needs.
The compartments are quite deep about 1.5”.
Which means I can pile even more hands into each slot!
First Step Taken to Making the Dolly Dream Come True
I love how the hands look in the box.
So neat and organized.
Now whenever I want to change my dolly’s hands . . . I can easily find the style I want without having to wade through a pile of dolly clothes, booklets and miscellaneous items.
Having my hands in order is one small step in getting organized and getting my dolly dream room.
My next step is to finding an easy solution to storing the dolly clothes.
