You're in for something completely different tonight. In fact you may just think I've gone over the deep end! I'm hear to tell you I am Okay! <smile>
Seriously, I believe an organized crafter is a happy crafter. They (organized Sally Stamper) tend to utilize their craft supplies more because they "know" where it is or it's easily accessible. The other day I had a complete loss of mojo-ness. I needed to create because it's just deep in my soul to do it everyday. It makes me happy. However the "what" to create wasn't coming very fast. I had gone to reach for a snail adhesive refill in my stash bin and thought how "NAKeD" the bin was. I thought to myself, "wouldn't it be cute with a little label!" I also knew this would be an easy thing to create and possibly get my creative mojo juices flowing. It did indeed! Let me show you!
First, I have to tell you that there are three supplies this girl will never run out of because I use them DAILY! Snail adhesive, Mini Glue Dots and Dimensionals. These are staples in my stamp room just as you have Flour, Sugar and Milk in your kitchen. Just sayin'!
Here are my baskets together:
Here is the Snail Bin:
And then the Dots…
Both of these used a few of my basic FUN supplies like Crumb Cake cardstock, Rhinestones and buttons. The stamp set I used is the Broadsheet Alphabet (#120585). I love this alphabet. It's a super set for scrapbooking and hand made cards. Or… a project like the one above. So when you have the loss of mojo-ness and you can't find that GREAT supply that you really need… take a few minutes and get organized. There are lots of things I could tackle to be better organized in my stamp room but instead I just tackle a few things at a time. Don't overwhelm yourself and enjoy the process of creating that pretty organized stash!
The next few days are jam packed with fun days ahead. My sweet prince has a big birthday on Friday. It's the big 40! Russ is just 12 days older than me (I call him my elder…) so we kinda celebrate the birthday's together. I'm working on a special card for him that I can't wait to share. We are having a big party for him on Saturday. Super exciting!! I'll post pictures, not to worry!
Lastly, the other day I had an itch to pull my camera out and take pictures of the beautiful fall leaves here in VA. I truly think this is the most beautiful fall I've ever seen. The leaves are just amazing. While I really did not have time in my day to play photo shoot girl…I'm SO glad I did. Just looking back at these pictures makes me smile. Really, it's beautiful here in VA. Take a Peek:
Have a GREAT Thursday!
