It has been a while since I have posted. It has been even longer since I have even scrapped or created a project. I took some leave this week and worked on some items. I have had very little creativity of late and it had bothered me a bit. So I have stuck a pin in my bum and got the juices a going. I plan on getting back into entering some challenges but I have deicided to wait a few eeks on that since I do not want to discourage myself. I am not very seasoned and I think that planyed a big part in my not enjoying my hobby. My hubby has been at the SNCOA for a while so when he returns I plan on going to a crop at least once a month up at Archiver's just to have some "me " time. I had a lot of fun last time I did it. I am also saving to but myself an all-in-one apple desktop computer. I have really wanted one for a while so I hope to have the money by this summer so in the meantime I am getting the scrap space ready. I plan on posting pictures of my area next. it changes constantly. Im not ready to do the video thing. I hate the way my voice sounds on tape and since I have a hard time keeping up with my blog the videos might be a ways off for now...plus I do not have my own dedicated space. Below are the project that I have completed. I used the cricut, gypsy and cameo. I really love all three machines and they were definitely a really good purchase. I am also in love with 6x6 paper, My Mind's Eye and the 12x12 DCWV. I have purged my scraps. I have decides that anything smaller than 6x6 I cant keep since I dont seem to use it. I know for some it may seem wasteful but I had rubber bins full of scraps well just full of scraps. My daughter's class and daycare put it to good use. It felt real good to get rid of it.I have given myself more workable space. I have also found myself two local consultants. One for CTMH and Stampin UP. I love both companies and I cant and I wont choose between them both. I also love Gina K, Tim Holtz, Hero Arts, MFT, My Pink Stamper, Stamps For Life, My Creative Time, Peachy Keen and now Amy R stamps. I am trying to cut back on the money I spend on stamps. I have so many and very little space to store them. I am one of those visual people and I need to me able to see them. I have one of them carousels but they do not hold all of my stamps so I have my embellishments and those stamps that I have oneies and twoies of to make it easier. I do believe that I will no longer buy anymore cheap stamps. I will not mention them by name. The do not give a good impression and they do not hold the ink very well. They are not sturdy and they stain very easily. I am either going to sell them or give them to my girls or pack them away since I do not use them.
