There's not a lot you can count on these days but one thing you CAN count on is that if it is the weekend I'm not sleeping. Sigh. Every Monday I could sleep until noon … Saturday and Sundays? Awake at 4:30 am. Today I decided to just get on with it … and … another thing you can usually count on is a Sunday morning blog post *lol*
Why can't I sleep? I just have too much running through my head this week … and for the next few. Rebecca turns 13 next Monday and we have something EPIC planned … so that is keeping my mind busy for many reasons and with may things. All be be revealed next week so make SURE you come back to see what Momma got up to (*insert squeal of excitement here!!!)
So what have I been up to lately? I haven't been crafting per se. I'm on my semi-annual purge session. About twice a year I feel like I'm being buried alive in "stuff". Everywhere I turn cupboards and drawers are bursting with "stuff". Last weekend I spent a LOT of hours just putzing in my Craft Cave purging and organizing. Well … I SAY purging but really it was more like "throwing away old paperwork and selectively stacking everything else" lol.
One thing I DID get around to was organizing all my little "one day" gifts. I had a rather large box of small gift items just waiting to be packaged, tagged and given away. Little things I have picked up here and there over the last year or two. Hand lotions, packages of teas and so on. It was taking up valuable real estate in my Cave so I decided to DEAL with it. Here is the result ...
For my packaging I used up some of the bags and tags I've been hoarding. Yes, shocking, I know, but I usually have a MINIMUM of 4 Tag a Bag kits on my shelf just waiting to be put together. I used our clear Gusseted bags ($5.75 for 25 bags)…
And the Tag a Bag kits that are currently on the Clearance Rack for $4.79. Can't beat THAT deal with a stick .. so I generally buy one every time I place an order (ya, ya, I have a problem … I know …)
I spent another few hours organizing my shelves … but I'll share that in my next post. Today, despite the temperature going up to a fabulous 23 degrees(!) I am working on getting those 968 pictures in my Project Life albums - another mission to get organized and use up some of the THOUSANDS of journaling cards I seem to have purchased *lol*.
Thanks for checking on me - whatever YOU get up to today I hope you have a stampy one :)
