If you sent to a card to a friend or family member can you have them take a photo on their phone and send to you. Won't be the best but at least you would have documentation.

That isn't a bad idea! I think a couple of them went to people I could trust to send a pic to me! I'll see what I can do.

Happy New Year!!

Cleaning my scrap room after the Christmas tornado. Of course the side of me that wants accomplishment is going crazy cause this will take all day! I know I will be happy when it is done and can check lots off the list but for now I think of the time I could be using to create. But can't create when you can't find your desk or have to hop around piles on the floor!! Does anyone else go through this complicated process or are you all wonderful picker uppers as you go?

Hope you are having a wonderful day.

Well if your supply is depleted then you definitely can get new supplies! And it's the holidays I'm sure you can buy yourself a little gift...knowing that most moms give more than they receive. And Michael's has 2 coupons right now...if you have one of those.

Did anyone else notice this year that glitter was the "in" thing this year with Christmas cards. Every...every...store bought card I was sent had glitter on it. Before I would get a couple but not this year they all had it!

Kathy, in normal circumstances, I am a pick up and organize as I go. I prefer to start with a fresh surface and work space. With that being said, throughout late November and continuing through December, not only was I trying to make my Christmas cards, I was also fulfilling my duty for the church (I make birthday and anniversary cards for all the members), I had a mother of a friend ask me to make wreaths for her Christmas Open House (12 in total) and I had gifts and other projects that destroyed my room. I did not take the time between projects to clean up and reset, mainly because I had most of these projects all going at the same time.
It took me a day and a half to get my room back in order.

I'm in again! I noticed the glitter too. I actually just got done reorganizing my scrap space to make room for my Christmas goodies, along with other things that have been stored in different places. Now everything makes sense! But I'm a little OCD. Lol! I actually RARELY start on a project until I'm done with one, but always have to clean up immediately whenever I'm done. Or at least the next day.

I actually saw an add from Hallmark that read "Christmas is too sparkly. Said no one. Ever." Lol! I used to hate when glitter got all over but Swiffer cloths have helped to eliminate that mess.

I have to tidy up every time I craft because I don't have a designated craftroom. My supplies are mostly stored in one cupboard which I try to keep organized since I have limited space. I did however, need to do a good sorting and cleaning after Christmas. Things were getting a bit hard to find.

Happy New Year everyone!!

My daughter and her family left this morning...... .....but now I'm all cleaned up and everything is put away EXCEPT for in my rubber room!! It's not too bad since I don't have a big table to work on, but stuff does get piled up in between doing everything at the holidays. Usually I put it all away and start clean after every couple pages.

Here goes---I was chosen to pick a bonus sketch---hopefully not one you guys have done, since I've only been back here a couple weeks.

January Bonus Sketch By Debstamps1

Hope it works. Now to get around and see what has been going on.......its been almost 4 entire days since I was here.

Have a wonderful afternoon!

Thanks Deb for picking one....I have it up on the first page.
I think we had it but it was over a year ago but either way I think it is fun to see it scraped at different times and by different people.

Well root canal #2 done. Now my face is numb! But seems to have went fine. Still can't decide on what to do for the extraction. It is scheduled for Jan 26th but I can't decide to be sedated or not. It is $215 for every 15 min. They should just use 15 min but still. I'm pretty tough and think I can handle it. The doctor said it was the noise and the fact that the tooth will come out in parts that bothers people. Still waiting to see if insurance covers any of it.

Maybe I'll go clean up more of my room...didn't even touch the piles on the floor on Sunday!

Kathy,

I hope you are doing better today! I had to have an extraction over a year ago......I have a hard time with being put under, so just numb me up and take care of it!
The oral surgeon was great about talking through the extraction and I was prepared for the noises.

Have you checked out the Jan Card Inspirational Challenge. There are categories there and if it fits then you can post it. I host it every 3 months and TexasMomof4 host it for 3 months, etc. It is also one that you do the categories that inspire you...you don't have to do all.

Deb - you crack me up that you call it the rubber room...for some unknown reason padded walls come to mind!! Maybe because it's our room that keeps us from going to the padded room!!

I hope to play in mine all day today. My schedule got changed at work starting Monday. So instead of the 1130am - 9:30pm schedule I am now going to work the 7am - 5pm schedule all this year. I'm not a morning person so I am not looking forward to 4:45 am. So I went to bed by 11 tonight and was going to get up at 7 to help me with the transition. Well 1:15 I woke up and can't get back to sleep. So going to try to catch up on love then go back to bed.

Good morning with plenty of sunshine but frigid temps!!

I did not just start coloring with Copic, I have just started back coloring after three years of pretty much just scrapping. I have taken two of the Copic classes over the years, beginning and intermediate.... the rest is just practice practice practice and when I see the results from the ladies that use Copics all the time, plus teach it, I realize I have a lot I could learn.

Thank you for hosing this challenge and giving me a place to pop in with a few cards. I have not made more hand a handful in the last 3 years and have had the urge to get back in......on a small scale as I just got rid of 90% of my stamps....

Sharon - I'm glad you like the challenge and it is inspiring you to make cards. I don't stamp much as it scares me and I'm not that great at coloring. But give me some cutter bee scissors and and image to cut out and I'll go to town. So you can make a lot of cards with just paper... as you have been doing and they are super cute. I need to start scrapping booking again but trying to find a balance is hard. I have several card orders and they keep me busy throughout the year so I have a hard time finding time for both. But I will!!
Got rid of 90% of your stamps...wow...that must of been hard. I probably need to do a big purge but not sure I'm ready for that yet.

Well, guess I will make breakfast and clean up the kitchen. Then I will have a card to share sometime today as I made it last night. Have to make more today so I'll be playing in my room today and checking in here. Have a blessed day.

and I forgot to say there is a ton of free and not free digis out there that don't take up a lot of space!!
Here is a FREE cute one from a lady that is recovering from brain cancer.
http://fromtheheartstamps .com/community/blog/

Here is a site that has them FREE all the time.
http://freedeariedollsdig istamps.blogspot.com/

This one offers a FREE one every day. What is cool about this company as they come in SVG, PNG and JPEG so if you don't feel like using a cutting machine you can use it as a digital stamp. Free ones are for your personal use but they do offer a license for about $8 if you sell on a small scale like I do sometimes.

Good morning ladies!

Kathy, I don't even think about the fact that I call my room "my rubber room"! I was a stamper/card maker long before I started scrapping. When my stepson moved to California and we no longer need a room for him to stay in regular, it became my room. With all the stamps I had.....I can't even venture to say how many....tons will have to do.....it was called my rubber room! That is about 20 or so years ago!

I have done like Sharon and gone back and forth between scrapping and card making BUT I have only purged about 10 percent!! Almost all my stamps are wood mounted and I just keep working around them! Especially since I started scrapping and stamping together! So yes, it is my rubber room!! I do like your definition tho---it does help with my sanity!!

Soon as I get caught up around here, I am off to finish my card making from last night!

And Sharon -- we have lots of sunshine this morning, but I'll trade you fridgid-----felt like -10 when I got up and we are now at whopping 5 degrees......heatwave!

Kathy, I forgot you made a comment about using scraps! All the cards I made are strictly scraps.....I have quite a bit and have decided they must be used!! And I, like you, have so many brads and buttons.....they must be used.....must stop collecting!!

I am the same way. Cards are strictly 1/2 of a sheet of 8.5 by 11 for the A2 base, then all other elements are cut from scraps in my drawers. It really helps me use up what I have. (I can't wait to be rid of all of the glitter cs because it's really tearing up my german carbide blade and it's not easy to get the flakes out of the adhesive on my cutting mats either.

Wedding Wishes By Debstamps1

The golds are just not showing up like they should. And the butterfly is two pieces but scanning kinda flattened them together.

Gentle Thoughts By Debstamps1

I am really not happy with how the colors are showing up here. I love using wired ribbon on cards and it just isn't the right colors! The ribbon is gold edged.

Thank you all for the wonderful comments!

I feel you Kathy. Although, I am more of a morning person. I'm up at 4 to go to the gym with dh. This morning I did not want to get out of my nice warm bed.

I ended up changing my last entry just a bit. I will try to upload a pic when I'm crafting this weekend.

It's been a very long day at work and I will be going to bed soon.

My sister from another mother!! LOL I do the same thing, except I have an OLD black Fiskars cutter that is specifically for glitter/flocked papers. On that note, I also have the Cutter Bee scissors for the glittered papers and the Honey bee and TH scissors for the standard papers. It seems to save the life of my favorites.

Hi Lorilei,

I'm just marking my spot to remember which cards I've commented on. Here's a great list of some of the acronyms used in the forum https://www.scrapbook.com/forums/showtopic.php?tid/1402... but we're always happy to translate anytime you need

Kathy, 4:45am sounds awfully early to me. Do you have a long commute? I would think that one of the only good things about leaving for work so early in the morning is that the traffic would be light at that time of day.

Hoping you're adjusting well to your new schedule!

My blade, I was referring to is in my cricut, but I do need to get a new trimmer for glitter only and get some good scrappy scissors. Great recommendation to have 2 different brands so I don't get them confused. Thanks!
