My Craft Room is Clean.......somewhat

Well, I managed to clear out some of the "junk" from my craftoom however it has migrated down south into the family room.  I think the next step is to slowly add more storage bins into my hubby's space....his man cave (aka the garage).  If I do it slowly then maybe he won't notice me moving stuff into "his territory" - LOL
My local stamp store is holding their annual craft yard sale in a couple months so I will be sorting through my stash of supplies and setting aside what I can sell.  You know what that means?  The more I sell then the more new stuff I can buy.....and the vicious hoarding cycle starts all over again.- {sigh}

I'm One Pile Away From Being a Hoarder has become a familiar site having my craft room look like an episode of "Hoarders".  I am actually inspired to create something today but I can't with this ginormous mess that has taken over my work space!  I should be organizing right now but the piles of scattered mess is overwhelming me.  Maybe after I have a healthy breakfast it will give me the energy to conquer this whirlwind of disaster?  My craft room is usually used as a storage space instead of having things pile up on the kitchen table.  I put things in my craft room to get it out of the way until I have time to find a proper spot for it permanently.  I received my Stampin' Up! shipment of goodies a few days ago.  I took everything out so as to refresh my memory of what exactly it was that I had ordered and now everything is sitting on top of my desk waiting to be put away.  It's times like these where I wish I had a bigger craft room but then again if I had a bigger space it would just be more space to store things.  I wonder if I could get Ty Pennington and his "Extreme Makeover" team to come help me???

Ok, enough stalling...{deep sigh} I need to get busy cleaning off my desk.  Hopefully I will be able to get this organized so I can make something creative before the day is over.  Check back with me tomorrow to see what or if I made something {wink wink}.  I hope your day is fun and productive.

til another time....

Last Chance!

As many of you may already know that Stampin' Up! is doing away with the "Weekly Deals" on Tuesdays.  I am sad to see it go became my favorite Tuesday tradition to visit the Stampin' Up! site so I can view what Hot deals were in store for me that week.  Well from what I hear... there will be a different promotion instead but not as frequent.  We will just have to wait and see. 
And for the grand finale....

Get It Before It's All Gone!

Good Morning everyone!  I just found out this morning that Stampin' Up! will be ending their "Weekly Deals" special on April 18th.  If you weren't already aware of this fantastic weekly sale well now is the time to check it out before it's gone for good. Usually they have 5-6 items listed at a special price every Tuesday morning but this week's deals are plentiful.  You can view them here
Weekly Deals .

I personally love the Weekly Deals specials and would look forward to seeing what they had on sale every Tuesday morning.  I would buy items that I had my eyes on for a while but held off because I didn't know whether or not I would really make use of them but at those Weekly Deals prices how could I pass them up?!?  I also like to buy an extra one or two items and save them as a gift for a special crafty friend.  I am sad to see them phase out the Weekly Deals but the also announced that they will be replacing it with something even better!  Stay tuned to find out.

I hope you have a Fabulous day and Happy shopping!

Let's Bring Birthdays Back! how many of you actually send out a birthday card to your family and friends when it comes around to their special day? honest now!  Truthfully I am completely guilty of lacking in that department.  Most of the time I either send a quick message via text or post a birthday message on Facebook. Well...NO MORE!!!  I know personally I LOVE receiving actual cards in the mail.  I get excited when I see happy mail in the mailbox addressed to me...something other than bills and junk mail.  So...if I want more Happy Mail then I should send out more Happy Mail of my own right?  Have you seen or heard of the cool new movement that Stampin' Up! has introduced recently?  If can read about it here - #imbringingbirthdaysback .  I have absolutely fallen in LOVE with this wonderful concept.  So I have been working on a variety of different birthday cards to have ready for when another special birthday rolls around.  I am super excited to see this movement take off and spread around the world.  Who's with me?

Here's a picture of the cute stamp that Stampin' Up! has created....

It's Good to Give Thanks!

Hi ya'll

I just wanted to share real quick something I made for a customer.  I really loved the way it came out and thought I'd share it with you.

I absolutely LOVE the "Birthday Bouquet" designer series paper {DSP}.  I can tell it's going to be something I will need to place in my shopping basket every time I place an order.  Anyway...I hope you like it.

Happiness In a Box

When I've had a stressful day and nothing else seems to go right ...

I can always count on my Happiness in a Box to cheer me up!  I just LOVE getting my Paper Pumpkin kit every month!  I look forward to seeing my Happiness in a Box waiting for me in the mailbox.  I can't wait to get back inside the house so I can open it up and reveal what kind of surprise is in the box. 

This month's box was a blue color in celebration of Paper Pumpkin's 3rd year anniversary, normally it comes in an orange colored box.  I love how each box has materials perfect for creating a fast and easy project in no time!
