Last week I'd arrived at the point where I couldn't close the snippets/scraps tray, so that was my first task. In comparison to many (such as Jules - go and peek, if you dare. And while you're there - do look at the gorgeous cards she makes) I'm way down the 'hoarder list' but it still took me a good while - and this is the end result:
It truly was a worthwhile exercise and I've been amazed at how many colour combinations I came across that I wouldn't have thought about before. I should also add this disclaimer 'Not one snippet was harmed during this process'....I kept every single one of the little perishers :)
This is my desk right now....space, glorious space:
The usual morning cup of black coffee and things as I left them yesterday. A LOTV image ('Abracadabra') that I stamped, coloured with Pro Markers and then chalked the background - just waiting for me to set to with the Cuttlebug. LOTV sentiments, also already stamped and ready to die cut. Clean (please note Julia - little smile of glee here) stamps - whoops and the baby wipe I cleaned them with - waiting to be put away.
A quick swing to the right and ta-da:
An empty grey basket which is usually overflowing with stash waiting to be returned to its rightful place! And, the green basket behind is also a shadow of its former self. It holds new stash and stamps to be used before they get put away and potentially forgotten about. At the end of last week I had a MAMMOTH stamping session - some for friends and some, while I was at it, for me. Then the stamps were settled into their boxes - for now. Another mission is to totally organise the unmounted stamps - they are all 'sort of' categorised in Really Useful Boxes but it's still a heck of a lot of sorting through looking for the right stamp so I need a system.
Hopefully life might be easier with more ready stamped images to hand. I've been so lucky that friends have sent me images and now my quest is to put them all, including the ones I did, to good use! Lots of colouring in ahead :)
Right ladies - that's my 'show and tell' for this week. To join in the fun and frolics do hop over to Julia's - you could be a while so nip to the loo, make yourself a coffee and settle down. I'll be doing exactly the same! Happy WOYWW!
