I didn't realize how long it had been since I've posted here. The last two weeks have been a whirlwind, and it doesn't look like things will be calming down for a while.
My new craft tables and cubbies from Scrap'n'Cube are going to be delivered this afternoon. Since my craft show is over, I have been spending my time here and there cleaning out my craft room, and it looks like a tornado came through our basement. It's amazing how much stuff one can pack into a 10' x 10' room! Will it ever end?
Emptying my room has made me realize how much stuff I don't need, and when it's time to put it all back together, it won't be allowed in my room unless I use it. Regularly. No more hoarding pretty patterned paper. No more buying dollar spot things to alter or saving altoid tins to alter because... I don't alter! It has taken me years to realize that, but I'm done buying stuff I don't do anything with. I'll leave the altering to someone else and stick to making cards.
Speaking of cards, here is a quick one layer beauty I made for our son for his birthday today. I'm not very talented at the collage-y style, but I think this one turned out pretty good. It's pretty hard to mess up when you use the Exteme Elements set.
Stamps - Extreme Dirtbike, Extreme Elements, PTI Birthday Basics
Paper - GKD PL white
Ink - Crumb Cake, Espresso, Suede, Night of Navy
It's hard to believe my first born is already eight. He's halfway to driving a car, and will probably be trying tricks like this on his dirtbike by then - ack! I'm just glad I'll have a great room I can hide out in!
I'll post pictures when it is all put together, and I hope to be stamping again soon!
