I Love Color

It was a warm sunny beautiful day yesterday and I spent the whole day in my basement re-arranging things, again. I need to clear some room so I can actually sit down and get some projects done. Once I get started on something, forget it. Yesterday it was my ink pads. I took them all out of the Stampin' Up! revolving holder I had in put and put them up on the wall in a cassette holder. I am trying to get as much off of my floors and counters as possible

Now this empty so I am selling it on E-Bay if anyone is interested. My seller name is SharonTup

These are my Stampin Up stamps now along with some Amuse Studio Stamps. I like being able to see all the same line together.

These are Close To My Heart ink pads.

I have already posted this photo but these are some of my bottles of Stickles.

And these are my collection of copic markers.

I just felt like posting some color today.

Trying to Find Happiness

This may sound lame, but have you ever been in a rut and then woke up one morning and said to yourself, "Enough is Enough!" I feel that way today. The sun is shining and I am sitting in my basement trying to clean and feeling depressed all the while. I should be outside enjoying this beautiful day, but who will clean this mess?
So I am making my only little bit of happiness. I will blast my radio with some summer tunes and dance around my room as I get things accomplished!
Have a Summery Day everyone!

Next purge of scrapping supplies

Well, I just listed a bunch of stuff on E-Bay again. It is getting to the point that I am going to start listing the stuff I do love and use just to make a little extra money.

If anyone is interested my seller name on E-Bay is SharonTup and these are just a few things that I am trying to auction off. There are lots of Close To My Heart and Stampin' Up! stamp sets, some paper punches, two Clip It Up storage Racks and a big box of Sizzix dies along with the machine and some extra plates.

Feel free to take a look and let me know if you have any questions.

I just finished up doing a LayOut A Day (LOAD). It was a month long challenge put on by
I actually completed 32 pages in the month of February. I felt very accomplished by completing the challenge. I tried this back about a year ago and only 5 days into the challenge I found out I needed sinus surgery again (for the 4th time) and got rather depressed about it and could not get my head back into the challenge. So, I feel great that I was able to get through it this time.

Now that the month is over I am back to re-organizing my scraproom. What a mess! I keep getting sidetracked every time I find something I have not seen in a while. I lost 2 whole days when I came across 5 envelopes of photos from a disney trip from 2008. I thought I had scrapped most of that trip but after finding so many photos still in their envelopes I came to a crashing halt in cleaning and had to organize these photos, try to put them in order and then store them into photo pages so I could easily see the photos when I get to finished this trip.

then I have spent another 2 days trying to find and sort all my stickers, rub-ons, embellishments and started sorting by theme. Once I did that, then I took everything out of its packaging and I am sorting these into page protectors. I have two (2) Crop In Style PSB (Paper and Sticker Binder). I got these years ago and never really used them. I have decided that I do not like my Clip It Up storage units anymore. The photo below shows a 3 level one on the floor that I had tons of Jolee stickers on. Up on the counter is another one that I am going to keep using. The one up on the counter I use to store my favorite Close To My Heart acrylix stamp sets. I emptied the one on the floor along with another one that does not show in this photo and about 75% of the items are now stored in binders so dust cannot get to them anymore. I would have gotten to them all but both my binders are full. I have to come up with another idea for finishing up these embellishments, I still have the categories of Family, Fall, Winter, and my biggest section will be Disney.

After sorting tons of stickers, I started cleaning again, when I thought about a better way to store some of my stamps. I really don't know if it will be better, but I decided to put all my expression stamps together. I am forever looking through all my stamps to find different versions of maybe "Happy Birthday" or "Thank You" so I pulled all the sayings out of the sets and I am trying to re-organize so all the sayings are together. As I type this I am already re-thinking this. Maybe it will not work but I spent about 2 hours last night looking at all my sets and pulling some saying together. But, then how do I organize when I have some wooden sets and acrylic sets? I will have to think this through some more.

Time to stop typing and getting back to cleaning.
