Mission Organization

This is what I have been up to the last few days... Undertaking "Mission Organization" in "my room".  I am cataloging all of my wood-mount stamps and wheels so I can flip through to find images or sentiments without pulling out each set to see what it's got.  I started with a binder for my clear mount stamp sets and that is "current" and up to date.  And thick :)  I am almost done with my "wood mount" binder.   I am just finishing up the pages for the Jumbo Wheels then I will tackle my Standard Wheels - then I will be DONE!  It will be so much easier to maintain going forward!  It's very exciting to enter a new stamp set in it's binder :)  I have actually found creating my Wood Mount binder to be exciting - when not being tedious and daunting ;)  It's as though all of my "oldies but goodies" are new again!  I am actually going to start making some projects with these sets and spotlighting them here.  We all have older sets that don't feel loved anymore... poor things.  I plan to change all of that in the new year!

So, Happy New Year friends.  
I am so happy to be facing the new year a little more organized and with a plan!  
There's exciting stuff ahead!

See you Next Year!

New Items Added to the Clearance Rack

Who doesn't love a bargain???
I know I do!

So, it is with much excitement that I can tell you that Stampin' Up has added new items to the Clearance Rack!  Bargains galore can be found there and in every category!  Ribbon, Cardstock, Designer Papers, Punches, Sizzix Dies, Embossing Folders, Ink... you name it!
Don't miss out!  Items tend to disappear at a blink of an eye and I have lost out on more occasions than I care to remember!  If you want it, buy it!  It just may not be there if you wait so much as an hour!  Sleep on it and it's sure to be gone.  Just ask me, I'd know :(

Just click right over to my online store and enter the bargain hunters paradise called
The Clearance Rack

Happy Bargain Shopping :)

Getting a head-start on next year!

Happy Holidays and a Very Happy New Year!

The last few weeks have been soooo busy for us - as I am sure they have been for you!
In thinking about what I want my next year to look like, the first thing I wanted was to be less chaotic and more prepared for those things that I know will be here before I know it - like Christmas!
So, after all of my Christmas cards were mailed - at the last minute and a few short - I started making my cards for next Christmas!  After all, it will be here before I know it and I don't want to be caught unprepared - again!

So, in the coming days, I will be posting my creations and I hope they inspire you to get a head start as well!  I have a quite a few new stamp sets to play with as well and I am looking forward to inking them up and creating with them!  New Years eve is coming and I'm working on my "resolutions" list.  This aught to be interesting :)

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll come back for daily doses of inspiration starting soon!
