Thanks gals!  Been thinking that if I cleaned out a bit, I might get more inspired.  Saw one of the admin on Stamp Junkies saying she had lost her interest.  Just too much “stuff”, never used and also so much media that she felt overwhelmed.  Think that is what I am feeling.  Use to just come to STV but now it is all on FB, Pinterest, etc.  So have unjoined several of them and going to limit time on Pinterest.  Hope this helps!  

Bonnie, Love your new tool.  I have something similar, but forget to use it!  How does everyone store all their commonly use tools?  Maybe I’ll find something old and figure out a new use for it tomorrow.  Going to at least get started!  Hugs to all!

Oh wow, two tips from Judy, Keep looking and the lost might get found. Your organizational skills are to be envied. Gold binders will be fun to see soon.

Well, that’s exciting Johanna – what a nice Valentine – new cabinets, though I know they’ve been on order for a while. You will have fun getting the cabinets all organized. I’ve been doing a bit of reorganizing myself. I got a new table for my craft room and have been trying to arrange items on it, leaving me a bit more space on my stamping table. The table has more space under it, and has enough room for a couple of small shelves that I was using elsewhere in the house.

 

 I started setting up a file tub with my GinaK cardstock. When I pulled out a hanging folder to put the tab on it and in that folder was a circle die I’ve been missing for a long time.  No telling what else I’ll find as I continue to rearrange things. The power strip is a little more accessible now so it will be easier to plug in my heat gun and a laminator, if I ever decide I want to get into foiling.

 

Yes, I miss the challenges too and don’t feel quite as motivated to make cards. Needing cards in various categories should be enough motivation for me, as I always need thinking of you and sympathy. I’ve made a few cards, but haven’t posted them with the hope that they will fit in a challenge down the line. I keep thinking I should just challenge myself to do something. I have so many sets that I’ve barely used.

 

Bonnie’s idea of rediscovering some of our tools is great.  My rediscovered item is a stamp binder that I’ve had for a while, but hadn’t put to the best use. I’ve been following the chat on FB in the Stamp Junkies group about all the sales going on at Hobby Lobby. I have two close to me. Found a couple of things but nothing like folks have been posting on FB. During one visit I found a clerk who was marking wood mount stamps down to 75% off. She told me they were downsizing the department and she showed me pages of what was going to be marked. She said if there was anything on the pages I wanted, she’d go ahead and mark them down for me. I found a couple of gold colored stamp binders that she marked down to $3.75. I also picked up a package of refills that wasn’t on markdown. When I got home, a lightbulb went off and I decided this would be a great way to organize my incentive sets. When I get it finished, I’ll post a picture.

I got one for you guys, how about we talk about our latest greatest wiz bang. It could be something actually old but found new life in our interest. It gets us sharing without actually competing for a prize. Other than the gift of great ideas and support. 

For  me, I am into using my new pick up tool. It is not expensive and not very sticky but does great with small embellishments. I don't think Gina carries it but here is a link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NL5LTO2/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_...

When Anna was popping in a few years ago, she was always instigating a card idea for anyone interested in creating.  That could be fun and get some inspiration.

I am not complaining about the monthly challenge.  It works well for many people.  I am like Diana in that I miss the weekly challenge.  I had a schedule where I would think on it one day, create the next day and grab a photograph when the weather cooperated.   I seem be spending a lot of time  with doctors either for myself or another family member and those just take the creativity out of me.  With this lack of creativity, the monthly challenge works much better right now.

Comment by Diana Scott on February 10, 2018 at 5:43pm

Not complaining, just miss them!  I’ve lost my mojo!  Bad!  And the challenges always helped me get back into my cards!  Maybe someone has an idea, something we can do as a group, without the help of Karen, Gina, etc. that might motivate us that love the kits?  

Johanna, your new craft room sounds awesome.  Post some pictures when done!  Hugs!

Comment by Johanna Rundell on February 10, 2018 at 5:15pm

Yes I'm the same, but change is inevitable and we can't avoid it. Complaining doesn't help either. Seeing as once again I'm packing up my craft room temporarily, in a way not having to think about a weekly challenge is a relief at least this week. My custom made tables and cabinets arrive for install on Valentines Day so after that I can set up permanently I hope. 

Comment by Diana Scott on February 10, 2018 at 4:56pm

I miss the challenges!  Does anyone else?

Comment by lovinpaper on January 15, 2018 at 1:40pm

Thank You ladies.  I am doing much better and am only on Tylenol right now.  

Comment by Bonnie on January 15, 2018 at 12:32pm

Oh Lisa, my dear, not good about the stones or surgery. Clean up and put away is not ever the fun part of my crafting. Hope you feel better soon and the top of your work space becomes friendly to crafting again soon.

When we first started ranching we realized that tools had to be found so we made a pack that a job was never done till the tools were put away. That same idea has found its way into my craft area. I don't let myself start another project till I have put scrapes where they go (small box of odds and ends or the final end the round basket), washed and put away the stamps and then put away all the other stuff I got out to create. I don't have tons of space or tons of supplies so organization is not that complicated. I really do feel for you gals that have both. What is a blessing can be a curse.
