I have this wonderful crafting space.  I love my room but I need a clutter intervention. I’m motivated and blogging I think will help me stay focused on my decluttering effort.

It has been so long since I can hardly remember how to post photos. Hopefully, I’ll get it sorted out and show you what I’ve accomplished in the first few weeks in January.




New Year brings a fresh start. I’ve made some New Year Resolutions.

  1. Get control of my clutter
  2. Restart by blog effort

I’ve been working hard on the clutter situation. And to kickstart my blog restart I’m going to share my clutter cleaning efforts of my craft room. blog is about to have a rejuvenation.  Stand by.

I’ll be having an Open House on July 11 at 4PM.  If you are interested in attending give me a call or email and I’ll reserve a spot for you.




The new catalog is hours away! There are all sorts of wonderful new stamp sets, accessories and colors.  If you’d like a new catalog just give me a call or send me and email and I’ll arrange to get one to you.

Additionally, there are some hidden gems that aren’t in the new catalog but you can still order them. You can see the dormant list on my section of “handy stuff to download.”


I’m back.  On 24 Dec my Mom has a stroke and thank goodness she has made a remarkable recovery.  My life has changed significantly since then but I feel I’ve finally got all the various facets of my life in control to resume blogging.  So stay tuned for updates.
