Currently cleaning my scrapspace as the rest of you here continue to create!

The great thing about cleaning, is refinding all my long lost, hidden goodies (aka treasure!)

Thinking of doing something regarding my scrappy obsession and the many collections of things/toys/tools I have e.g. paper, fiber, Thickers, shiny bits, Cricut, stamps, etc...

OOOhhhh! Tim Holtz and my love of his grunge! That could be an entire book but I could start with a single page!!!! I even have a photo of him sent by a friend from an expo!



I'm so loving your idea Nancy! With that said, can't wait to see the fun & wonderful things that inspire you & your project!

Good Luck & Way To Go!







Am thinking of doing the same thing with another smash book I was going to make it all about my crafting world.

I think they're excellent ideas!

Yes, I may even (eventually) sit down & make one as well.

That is, as soon as I finish the other 2 that I currently have in the works!

Char, are you saying that you are 59? From your photos, you look at least 10 years younger than that!



No no- I'm 48 this year - where did 59 come from? Oh my

Oh yes- instead of calling it cleaning we need to refer to it as treasure hunting as I always find where key items have hidden themselves away....

I have 5 total SmashBooks - have been avoiding looking at them in the stores, online, etc to keep from buying another. I am only working on the one & the other 4 are on top of a stack of stuff I need to sort thru. Maybe I need to play hooky for a day & sort thru it.

This past Friday I took in 2 kitties to foster for a bit & that has also disrupted my basement organization as I had to make room for more litterboxes, plus I put their food down there so my kitty & them wouldn't fight over that territory. Here we are on the 6th day & last night they discovered it's safe to come upstairs. I hope to be taking photos of both of them (one is very shy & hides all the time for every little noise). This is my first time fostering & it isn't stressful, just takes extra time.

Sorry, Char I guess I got confused when you said you were short a year and retiring at 60.

So new smash books are on there way yay

I got the pink one cause its pretty

Green one is a food one and since I started a healthy eating and weight loss I thought it would be prefect for that journey

And Blue ons which is retro so I thought that would be good for my every day life

Now Im also thinking of getting the Blue School ones ready for next year when both my kids are at school so I might get it while its on special and put it away

Dose any one know I am doing to do a crafting smash book is there a book that is a crafters one?

Well I have a spare hour or so before dinner needs to be started so I'm going to work on a page or 2
