The Light Bulb Moment and a Card...and a personal note...


 The weekend is zooming by! Why? Slow down! I am a weekend crafter and so I cherish my Saturday and Sundays! I managed to get 6 cards made this weekend for various challenges. That felt good!


I had a light-bulb moment! I don't know about you but I am overwhelmed by all the stamps that are out there. There are so many I love and want to buy but I made myself re-organize my craft space and the stamps I already own...I used some clear covers from SugarPea Designs and I put all of my stamps away...I actually need another 100 pockets for my stamps...which just goes to show you how many stamps I actually have in my craft room! 


Here are just some of my stamp sets...I love that I can see them all so easily and I actually put them away when I have finished using them! What a concept! Ha!


Since I have organized my stamps this way, my mojo has returned! I cannot believe how much I want to stamp! Funny! So today I got out a stamp set I purchased from Winne & Walter through Butterfly Reflections Ink and I got busy...watercolouring!


On a personal note...I have lost 55 lbs! I have been working hard at it...here I am in my craftroom! I am wearing my comfy clothes...thanks for stopping by!

  3. This card is beautiful. Glad you got your organization done. I feel the same way about my stamps totally need to just use what I have, but want so many of the ones being released. Too bad we didn't win the powerball lol. Super happy for you on your weight loss. That is amazing. Congratulations. Just spent the last 3 years dealing with abdominal surgeries and finally had all my lady parts removed. I've never been skinny and have had to fight to stay a decent size my whole life, but since my surgeries and going on estrogen it's like harder than EVER. Been juicing for 11 days today and it already seems like a lifetime so I know what an accomplishment it is to lose 55lb (I've done that before also) you should be very proud and treat your self to a stamp set for sure ๐Ÿ˜Š you look beautiful and your creations are amazing!
