No Stamping Yesterday

So, yah...since we are having a 'party' today and my stamp area has been a mess for awhile now I decided I would go ahead and clean it up. Todd said I didn't have to but I just couldn't leave it such a mess and I guess I didn't realize just how much of a mess I had! My major issue right now is storage. Because I only have a corner of the living room (which is great because I'm around the family when I'm stamping that way) there isn't any room for extra anything. And really, some of the area is for books and such that I need for other things too. My retired and 'I'm not currently using' stamp sets go in a box (or three) in the bedroom closet which means they are definitely not getting used the way they should...poor things! I'm sure they are lonely wondering why I love the other sets more!

Anyway, it took me about 2 hours total to go through everything, put things away that I don't really have room for and don't use often, re-organize, dust, and generally make the area look like I can actually use it. I made a special drawer for my Giga and Mega Punches which gave me back a lot of space on my desk. I couldn't put away my SU! or Copic markers though as I use them too often. It still is a bit messy looking but that is because I got out my Christmas cards so that I can see what I have to send and what I need to still make. It will be fun sending a different card to everyone this year.

I hope that I get some time to stamp this evening although it is going to be a very busy week for me so I may have other things to do. Have a super wonderful Sunday everyone!

Thanks for reminding me of the "disaster zone" in the master bedroom! I couldn't possibly have another creative process in it's current condition! *wink*

I can so relate to my friend, Lisa's Blessed a latte! (HUGS LISA)

Hi Lori! Wow, you did a great job cleaning up your area! I can totally relate about the space issue. I've got everything crammed into every available storage space I can find. Regardless, I'm still over flowing with stuff.

Thank you for participating in my blog candy challenge! Hope you had fun! Good luck!
