I had the weekend off and was able to get some work on my organizing in the craft area…I know more arranging but, I cleaned up some really messy areas cram packed with too much stuff. I got rid of most of the things I think I need to keep to alter or use in some crafty project and that made a big dent in the clutter. I grouped like things together for easier access. I took some pictures of the process to post with this blog entry. I also think I have come up with a way to category my stamp sets after a lot of web searching ( I couldn’t find the one you spoke of Leslie but I got some really good Ideas ). So heres what I decided to do…. I bought some 4×6 index cards that are blank on one side and lined on the other. I stamped all my stampin up clear mount stamps tonight on the blank side and hand wrote the information on the other side ie: stamp manufacturer,name of set,number of stamps ,if it was a hostess set or sellabration and if it was a two-step set that had coordinating punch or punches. I am going to make category dividers color coded with my tab punch and put colored dots on the index card to show where it belongs and that way I can list if it fits more than one grouping. I now have a note-book but they are just randomly stamped and I have to look through all them just to find what I’m looking for . Way too time consuming when my time is limited. any hoo that’s what I’ve been up to this weekend and it feels good to get to do something I enjoy. There is a couple of pix of Ariels leg and one of Levi on the kitchen table the little rascal thinks he’s a monkey and he’s fast too. There is also a couple of photos of some pipe cleaner art on my bed done by Sierra She found them in the craft cleaning and had fun playing with them, Oh the to be a kid again and get so much enjoyment from something so simple. The last one is of mister Levi after his peanut butter and jelly sandwich , He had as much on his face as in his tummy I think. the watercolored looking photo is my canvas I stamped and sprayed with my homemade glimmer spray and I also put in our VBS crafts the colored sand cross necklaces, Wooden tops. Cross wind chimes any hoo thats what I’ve been able to do these past few weeks. Lotsa fun with the kiddies.
Enough rambling for me I am off to get this posted and my photos up loaded and then watch some movies with the kids then to bed at a reasonable time. Thais the plan anyway 🙂 Hope you are all staying cool and safe with whatever is keeping you busy where you’re at.
Much love and hugs,
