Hello friends!! I have been MIA for some time but I have been spending tons of quality time with my family and everyone who knows me well, knows how important they are to me......they come first!!! We have been to the beach, took a mini camping trip with my parent and even took the kids to see the movie SMURFS this weekend with my brother and his family. We had a BLAST - what a cute movie. My brother and I kept talking and laughing throughout the entire movie as it reminded us of our younger years. The kids spent the night at my brothers house on Saturday and hubby and I had a Sushi dinner date - it was amazing!!!
I have been wanting to scrap, I even have 5 storyboards printed and ready to be scrapped, but I've been so busy lately. Hopefully this weekend I can get at least ONE page done :)
Everyone who has a craft room knows there is ALWAYS some reorganizing to be done. That is EXACTLY what I have been doing the past couple weeks. I ordered these Stufftainers by Stampendous so that I can organize ALL my wood mounted stamps:
The ones I ordered are the THICKER containers because they work best to store the wooden stamps. I don't have that many but the ones I do have, I want to organize by category.
I also ordered some Paper storage from Oriental Trading. I had never seen them in person so I always hesitated to order. My super sweet and talented friend, Dayami has them. The other day while at her house, I remembered, so I picked one up, checked it out and WOW they are awesome. I get so much inspiration from her and that fabulous room she has - super bright and cheerful just like her :) - thank you amigita ♥ I currently own the Cropper Hoppers and they work, but the ones from OT are just as sturdy and since the front is a bit lower, you can see your pattern papers better - not to mention they look A LOT PRETTIER - I LOVE THEM!!!!! I love the fact they have a metal pull in the front as well as a metal bookplate. I can't believe I didn't get them sooner.
Speaking of pattern papers, my fabulous friend Mercy, of Mercy's Pages, came over Friday night and helped me sort all my papers by company - I LOVE THIS SYSTEM!!!! I separated the holiday/theme papers - for example: Christmas; Halloween; Thanksgiving/Fall; Valentine; Baby, etc. They are all ready to be stored in their new home - YAY!!
After I organize the papers and stamps, I want to organize my ribbons and embellishments. I promise to add update pictures on my blog.
Hope everyone has a fabulous week!!
