So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

The Clean UP

I bet you will understand when I say...a CLEAN UP was needed!!!! I have been moving things around in that stamping area of the spare bedroom...and HOPEFULLY have things better organized now!!! The last 2 days have been spent, cleaning, tossing, rearranging and LOOKING to see what I have!!!

The biggest challenge was trying to find a place to put all the stamps!!! OH MY...but I am addicted!!!! I finally decided on 3 ring binders with page protectors for the clear stamps, some other clear stamps I already had done in CD boxes...and those do work well but I ran out of CD cases! The wooden stamps take up LOTS more space so those are in plastic tubs...I had them in those little 3 drawer plastic holders but the drawers started to fall out of the track due to use and heavy! Gina Kay is in the long tub in plastic envelopes! OH YES I am addicted!!!!

Anyway....here are some pics of the finished look....at least until I get in there and start messing things up again!!!
NICE clean work area! But look at all of the stuff!!! Addictions!!!
Copics, die cut area, cardstock in the far back shelf

Ink pads, smooch
Decorative paper and embellishments

From the doorway! Notice HOW clean!!!

And of course the biggest question of all..HOW long will it stay tidy??? BUT at least I know where things are today! :-)


  1. You have a fantastic space!!!!

  2. Way to go....now go in there and create!

  3. Your space looks great! Love, love love all your organizers!
    hugs, Marie

  4. yikes! i envy you...let's see - it's 24 hours later..how does it still look (-:
    LOL hugs

  5. Wow Barbara you did a lot. I thought I had a lot of stuff. I envy you your copics. I like the storage area where you have your markers that is nice. My scrap room is posted on the site under one of the discussions but I don't remember where. You will enjoy your room so much more now that it is organized. I laugh when I see the bed in there b/c that is like mine too, but when we don't have a guest, I have so much stuff laying on it, it's funny. Love your very cute kitten card too for the release challenge
