...2011 will be over soon thank heavens...... its not been one of the best years but it has had its fab moments as well as its dismall ones. Ive been so forgetful and disorganised more than ever this year Im surprised i managed to gaet anything done.Here's hoping 2012 will be much better, well I wont say better but different and Im writing everything down so I don't forget..... :)
Todays antics Not a creation has been made at all today as I'm still sorting I took the christmas tree down as well as all the trimmings, it was lurking in a corner and it needed to be tidied up. I love it when Im in a tidy up mood but now there's a huge gap and empty space that needs somethingput there ah well ..... You know I said my daughter had been sorting my flowers well here's
what she was sorting into,an hour and three drawers later she had colour coded the flowers and got them all into their new homes apparently I don't need any lilac or pink flowers (how little does she realise the need for more flowers)
The storage boxes by the way were a wonderful find Pops pointed out from Craft Super store and look what fab offer they have at the moment. I'm sure they wont last very long.
I just need to get the rest of my stamp collection filed and put away it does seem endless I had a huge pile of cd cases all empty and waiting to be loaded Im down to three OH MY .....
I can see my craft spend in jan going on cd cases instead of goodies :( why does storage cost so much its madness ...
I'm looking for a neat way to store my punches next
...... Yep it is, Ive lost time, days, a week it seems over the holidays but it was well spent and enjoyed by all. Today they have all deserted me, off on their jolies with friends and family.I think I scared them yesterday as my daughter was kept for over an hour sorting flowers for me lol, well she offered.
You see Ive spent the last few days trying to make a card and I gave up.... mojo..... just wouldn't flow and I kept getting in a tizz with all the bits and pieces strewn across my cubby shed its only 6ft by 8ft and I need more space so I gutted it all ,threw out many bits of junk I've accumulated over the last five years and never used.Im still sorting 72 hours later.
I'd show you pictures but its far too bad honestly it is...... I was shocked ......flabbergasted at the amount of stuff I hadespecially when I was trapped in there and the only way out was through 12 reems of cardstock and 6 baskets of ribbon (and that was only what was visible and not hiding in the drawers aghhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. I think there is no end to the amount of stamps and paper I've accumulated.
And guess what....... I got post today Yippppeeee!!!!!! my very last craft buy of 2011 from the glitterpot sale and my first evermagnolia stamp, what am I like its took me an age to buy one of those (moomins as I call them )my friends will be proud lol. but I couldnt resist the sales and as I'm on a strict buying regime from Jan 1st I thought I'd get in there as soon as I could the only thing is now I have to find somewhere to put it all before hubby comes home and thinks nothing is array lol. So I'm off to get some more sorting done and hide this lot might get a cuppa made in between.... hugs
..... and the madness has stepped in. Is it me or has it come upon
us real quick this year My final shopping items are purchased well
almost and I have a date with an ironing pile and an oven later on
today for Christmas cookies. Im still not in the Christmas mood and
thats after making Christmas cards with Christmas music and watching a
few Christmas movies I must have had some grinch dust rubbed off on me
Ah well Im sure I can shake it off. Ive got a few more bits to show you of what Ive made recently its a bummer when your printer dies and your still waiting for the man to fix it.
