First scrap layout in 6 months!

I did this for a challenge on This is the first layout I've done in at least 6 months. I used a Jen Caputo sketch template and Shabby Princess Moody Blues kit.

Unmounted is the way to go

I finally made a decision to go unmounted with my rubber stamps. Now to get some EZ mount and some Grafix and get to work on my stamps. This will be the prime time for me to look at each stamp in my collections and decide if I really like it enough to unmount them from wood and put them on EZ mount foam. Something tells me that I will be having a sale on eBay soon. This is going to say me a boat load of room and get my craft stuff finally organized.

I also finally got the books I was waiting on from . They are wonderful books and show some terrific craft spaces. But, all of these spaces are huge! I did not glean one iota of an idea for my space from either one. So I'm just going to have to wing it and get organized. Wish me luck!

We are going to have a family portrait made tomorrow. Can I say that I am in no way looking forward to this. As a matter of fact I'm looking forward to this about as much as having bamboo shoved under my fingernails. I know w…

I Need Some Motivation!!!!!!!

I need something to motivate me to craft. I have a ton of pics I need to scrapbook and I need to get some stamping. I keep collecting all the stuff, but never get anything made. I use to just love to sit down & make something and now I just want to sit. Crafting use to be my release and relaxing. Sometimes now when I think about doing either one I wonder why. I'm certainly not good enough to be published and don't know that most people appreciate the time I put into my stamping stuff.

Everyday I tell myself that I am going to scrap or stamp something that day and I never do it. What has happened to me????

I am amazed at the number of people who spend at least 2 hours a day in pursuing one of these crafts.

Looking for things to blog when I'm clueless.....

If you could choose a different time period to live in, when would it be?

I think it would have to be the 1800's on a Southern Plantation. The movie Gone with the Wind has always been my favorite; even as a child. I loved Scarlett & Melanie. Both of these characters have such terrific strengths, you can't help but love them. Times were hard during the Civil War, but life was much simpler before all the so called improvements & developments.

Happy 4th of July!
