    Last card from Stampin’ Bingo

    Here is the WOWSZA card… the cutie is a shaker! I do love them, why don’t we make more?? Hummm? Ohh, yeah not easy to mail. I know the nieces and nephews love them! Before I share more pictures… I just want to mention that the Lily Impressions DSP AND the Metallic Bakers Twine and Sequins set is from the SAB catalog, FREE! The sentiment is tooo! To add the WOWSZA it is a fancy fold too. But NO extra cardstock! How?? Take your 4 1/4 x 11 card base and cut it in half. Use the second half for the “front” in the opposite direction. Decorate as you wish!…

    Construction update and MORE!

    Houston, we have insulation AND drywall. WooooHooo!! Two full sheets left too…HUMMMM, where can I put that?? Mudding has started too! I will leave that for the next Post. The Chickens say… bring on the fall weather!! The girls sure have been much happier with the cooler temperatures. However, this Sassafras is a reminder of what is to come. They are the first to turn color here. Pretty against all the green, BUT!! This poor butterfly/moth was not “feeling” the cooler temperatures. Joe brought her in for a warm up and an orange snack. Lastly, I NEEDED to take advantage of the tools being out!! I can not wait to…

    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…

    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!!
