This week has scooted by so fast, it's just amazing. I spent a day and a half this week in Salt Lake City, Utah for work. The last time I was there was a year and an half ago for my very first Stampin' Up! Convention. How time flies.
I have been busy with work so the evenings and weekends have been consumed with getting in and cleaning out all the clutter in the house. Working out what to give away, sell or take with us to the new house isn't that easy! It sure is amazing how much one collects and doesn't use. Our motto is, take only what is worthy. Sounds simple...not so easy to execute! 34 days until we close on the house and I am starting to get into the packing mode. I have tackled the kitchen, spare room, the garage and the linen cupboards so far. The next great adventure is to work through my craft room....whah! :( lol
I walked in there this afternoon thinking, OK i can do this. Clear out the clutter that's all I have to do. Pack what I don't use often and hopefully leave the bare essentials out. Well, after looking around i realized that EVERYTHING is essential LOL. I put aside the thought of sifting through my craft room and decided to make a quick card...surprised???! :-D
I made this 4.5x4.5 card using Oh So Lovely Stamp Set, Chocolate Chip and Confetti cardstock, Le Jardin and Brocade Backgrounds Designer Series paper, Blue Bayou, Real Red and Close to Cocoa classic ink with a blender pen. I believe both ribbon have been retired from Stampin' Up! (smile) and I used a half pearl from the Pretties Kit.
OK now to head back into my craft room and try and begin sifting through the room. I can do this...really I can! ;-D
