Oh My Gosh!! I can't believe how quickly the week went by or how long it's been since I posted!
Here is something I'm trying out, to steamline my organizing. This is a "doodad" or parts keeper that I got at Canadian Tire. As you can see, it has 26 compartments which I have labled with letters stamped on sticker paper and punched out with a square punch. I've put all of my chipboard alphas and punctuation in the drawers. It's mounted on my pegboard near my inks, so now, hopefully, since it is more accessible and visible, I will start using chipboard more in my crafting.
I'm off now to start making my samples for my class on the 31st of this month. It's a Card Organizer with 4 matching cards. If you'd like to join us there is still some room left. Just give me a call or shoot me an email.
Stay warm and Happy Crafting ...

On another note ... I'm working on some changes for this new year ... organizing and such, and will be posting a few things that I'm implementing. I welcome any ideas you may have or suggestions that are working for you.

I'm back to work tomorrow ... hard to believe that it's been 2 weeks already. There may be changes there as well ... we'll just have to see.

Happy New Year and welcome to my blog.

This is a new venture for me and I hope you will follow along while I travel this new road. I'll probably not be able to post every day, but will post whenever I can. Perhaps blogging will force me to stamp or craft every day or at the very least, more often then I have.

I'm going to start with some pics of cards from my Christmas Card Class ... these are definately CASE'D but I'm afraid I did not save the names of the ladies who originally designed them. I'm still learning and will make note of names in the future.

Thanks for stopping by!
