Good morning crafty friends, the weekend again already and I can’t believe we’re at May 20th… where is the year going?
I’ve spent quite a lot of time recently watching a lady on you tube decluttering her crafty stash. Keith said it was like watching grass grow but I was hooked. There are plenty of shiny new craft rooms on display all beautifully organised but that isn’t reality for the majority of us
This lady went through every item, she ummed and arred about getting rid of things and found so much stuff she forgot she had. She didn’t mind showing the mess and the clutter and I was fascinated taking a peek into someone else's stash like that. Because she’s been crafting for as long as me (about 25 years) I found I have a lot of the items she was unearthing; hidden and unused in favour of new and many were from Companies that are no longer in business. You can find the videos under Rach0113 if any of you have 15 hours to waste… by the way I had it on while I was crafting or watched in bed if I had a sleepless night, it wasn’t in one go !!
One thing that I did realise is that I seriously need to declutter and I also need to do some indexing. I have boxes of stamps that are never used yet I still always reach for the same few favourites. I just collect them and I’m going the same way with dies and papers. So, I’m going to start cataloguing and I’ll take pics as I go for anyone who is interested (maybe no-one, but I think it will be therapeutic!!) I am a very organised person usually and I do know where everything is, but (like many of you I suspect) I just have too much stuff
Onto my cards and the new stamps from LOTV launch today. There are 20 of the most adorable images, these designs really are what everyone loves about Lili of the Valley and you will want them all!
First up is one of my favourites (if I had to pick one) and it’s called ‘Hand to Hold’…
My second card today is using ‘Two’s Company’…
I love creating a scene and this cute image is perfect for that using some clouds and a sun die
Hope you like them, the new stamps will be available in rubber, digi and simply print sheets from midday
That’s it from me, Keith is at work this morning so I’m having an hour crafting before he gets home while it’s quiet
Enjoy your weekend everyone, as always thanks so much for stopping by
