It's all about celebrating the small victories over here in the studio.  As you are well aware, I have managed to uncover my computer desk and I've yet to tackle the stamping desk.  I think it's a little like training for a marathon.  You have to "work" up to the main event and so, as a little practice exercise, I went through a stack of old Papercrafts and Simply Scrapping magazines.  Some of the were even from our old address and I had a couple of painful moments browsing through them thinking, "I really should keep them" but I'm going to take one for the team and pass them on to NEW owners.  Yes, that's right!  I've got this stack of magazines that I will be putting out at our Rubber Rummage on Feb 8th with a great big ol' FREE sign on them!  It's your turn to be inspired and let me tell you…I was so tempted to keep them!


Here's what the shelf looks like now. 

Stamp Storage I seperate my stamp by categories and the middle partition holds all my retired sets.  I routinely go through them with several factors in mind..Do I love it?  Do I have something similar or is it completely unique?  Does it have sentimental value?  (ie, did I make baby announcements with it?), do I have an unfinished project that I'm using it for? or would it be something I can use in my Layouts Classes? 

As you can see, I have a mixture of wood and clear sets and I've yet to transition all my clear cases into the new style.  That seems like a lot of work and my OCD isn't that demanding yet.

So make SURE you mark your calendars for Feb 8th.  We hold the Rubber Rummage, open to the public from 9am – 1pm, over at the DoubleTree by Hilton Milwaukee-Brookfield 18155 W. Bluemound Rd. Brookfield, WI 53045

We also have a 1-3 day stamp retreat that we call Camp Stamp-in-oga and we can certainly fit you in.  Registration ends Jan 31st or when we fill up, whatever comes first!  Contact me at 262-521-3194 for more information.  See you there!  Come and pick up a couple of Papercrafts magazines!
