    All about the kitties…

    Mooch would say the best part of this last week was that the windows where open. I would agree, a beautiful breeze and sunshine helps the mood for sure! Here is Mooch taking in some rays old man style!! White Sox would agree with Mooch, now. The leaking water fountain was down for “repairs”. However, the parts were ordered and arrived before the weekend. White Sox was grateful. In conclusion, Miss Penelope, over worked, decided that she needed a rest from her #snoopervisor position. I had to laugh because she is still in the box this evening. Paula, you worked her too hard today! I wonder what antics will happen…

    For the birds…

    Busy couple of days… Today however, started with Goose watch. These messy critters are not a favorite on the homestead. They quickly were evicted and hopefully found a new pond to reside. On a more fun note… spent most of the day in the craft room working on projects for OnStage. Still lots to do. Tomorrow is a New day!! Have a Great Day getting Crafty!!

    Organizing still underway

    Everyone is talking about the organizing they are doing…. This craft room needs it too. The clutter is enough to drive anyone to crazy town, with a free pass. I am ashamed of how bad it has gotten. stuff was everywhere…. There was even stuff moved already. Total trash/recycle 3 bags. One trip to the thrift store and lots for the BOGO sale. As you can see the retired stamps have drastically went down…. Even Penelope (top left) and Gaelic (down on the scratchier) helped sort. Room to grow?? I have catalogs that go back pretty far, not going back to when I was a customer, but there are a…

    All I can say is Chaos…

    The pictures would scare you ….. The craft room is getting completely tossed and the sale items are stacking up… The weather better cooperate, because you do NOT want to miss this!! Paula and Kaitlyn came today to help organize and price stuff. Did you know that for a few things we could not even find them in the catalog?? Well, at the the catalogs that were available. Let us just say….there are a few vintage items!! Some from the beginning of my time with Stampin’ Up! would be my guess. And that goes back ohhh over 15 years. Poor Paula was pulling her hair out.

    Let the organizing begin

    After over a year of looking at a mess… I was done. The corner of this room needs to be dealt with!! Four bags of recycle later…. Much better. Now looking for some solutions to get more organized. Finding these boxes was a huge bonus. Now all the dies and folders can go the same direction. WooHOOO. Then finding out that the ink fits also…. BONUS!!! As things get further along I will share more…. Have a Great Day getting Crafty!!

    It started with…..

    an antique popcorn popper…. the Pretty Pines (142049) Stamp set and matching dies (141851). This “holidayish” striped burlap (147889) just helped bring this idea to light….. The large sentiment needed a rough look and a few “snowflakes” At the craft fair I had a few people offer to buy this… I do not think I can give this one up. I was going to give it to my mom, but not sure if that is going to happen now either. YIKES!! Bad I know… Tell me what your style is?? Have a Great Day getting Crafty!!
