{ Organizing and Stamps! }

I didn't go to work today since a winter storm hit yesterday, leaving our street covered in an ice/snow/sand mush. Being from the South and not used to driving in this sort of thing, I thought it would be best for both me and other drivers to stay off the roads. It gave me the perfect opportunity to do a little organizing in my craft room! It's something that I've been wanting to do for a while now, but you know how time just tends to get away from you. Anyway, I *finally* was able to take all my scraps and split them up into color families: Soft Subtles, Earth Elements, Rich Regals, Bold Brights and Neutral/Pattern/Non-SU!. I think that this will help me actually use my scraps rather than just collecting them. I even am going to keep a little drawer of already punched-out shapes. So often, I get into the grove of punching this or that for a project, then decide to use a different color or not at all, so I end up with a lot of punched out shapes with no card to call home. Well, now they have their own little drawer. Hopefully, I will remember to look there.

I also got around to combining/labeling my stamp sets. There was a tread over on SCS about combining stamp sets. I had a couple already that were combined, but the thread gave me some ideas on other sets that I could combine. I was so excited by the extra room that I created for myself that I began to think that maybe some sets could go in smaller boxes - and I was right! I think I had 4 sets that could go into smaller boxes. I was able to really clear out a lot of space, and you know what that means ... room for *more* sets!!! Perfect timing, too. My hubby got me *STAMPS* for Valentines Day!! I know most girls would like flowers or chocolate or a romantic dinner, but my husband knows that I'm not like most girls (in many more ways than one!). For me, I want something that will last forever: stamps and jewelry!!! Either one makes me the happiest girl in the world! He even picked sets that I had decided to put in my next order! I will be getting: In My Thoughts, Supersize Symbols and Snowflake Spot! AND (as if that wasn't enough) since it is Sell-A-Bration, the order qualified and I was able to get another Just Delightful Simply Scrappin' Kit ... Yes! This kit is perfect for the scrapbook that I will *eventually* begin for my little niece, Madison. What a good day ... two of my favorite things: organizing and stamps! :-D
