Stacy, I have so been there and done that. I can't count how many times I've started a project totally unrelated to what I really need to get done. Sort of like right now where I'm supposed to be folding laundry so I can pack or making hot cocoa mix to bag up for SS teacher presents or bagging up goodies to hand out at church tomorrow or stamping the envelopes for the cards we're handing out at church tomorrow. Hmmmm, cleaning my stamp desk sounds pretty good right about now.

well Im flipping the table I stamp at to the other side of the room and then switched out the closet behind where the table was to the other side of the room so, the good point of this is I have gained 5' of closet space and so that is good... we are putting in a tv upstairs so that I can have company when Im playing... hubs wants to sit when he gets home and I want to do things...

so, Ive got most the furniture moved, everything from the larger closet is either in the smaller closet or the middle of the room. and most the craft stuff is in the larger closet now but, it needs another shelf. ( I had stamp boxes on a shelf in the old closet so they are stacked on the floor in the closet right now)

the smaller closet had my ( it was originally an rolled ribbon rack ) on the wall in there that hubs made me ( I moved my ribbon to plastic boxes and hung my punchies on this thing instead. ) that needs moved. the things ( storage ) hanging on the inside the small closet door need moved.

its getting there. I am determined to play tomorrow.
( I still have one thing to wrap too, so I need more than a walk way on the floor to spread the gift wrap out )

Stacy & Gail, I'm a member of that club too! It's part procrastination, part avoidance, and part distraction. Especially when I have a big project on my to-do list, I'll stop and do some smaller things first just to give myself the satisfaction of checking off a few things.

I'm just popping in to wish you all a Merry Christmas. My family is filled with mixed feelings - my father in law is dying. He's elderly and in poor health, but somehow that doesn't make it much better... so a unbridled celebration seems wrong.

I wish you all a wonderful holiday - and hope that you are with the people that mean the most to you!

Vicki, Merry Christmas to you also. I'm sorry about your father-in-law and do understand how that can inhibit unbridled celebration. It seems so often that families have sick ones or even lose family members near the holidays which is so sad. {{{Hugs}}}

Merry Christmas to all my crafting friends on SCS. My daughter isn't coming over until the 30th, so I have a very relaxing week ahead of me (long awaited and well deserved!) I hope to get caught up on some things, including house cleaning ... and of course - stamping!

Merry Christmas Vicki. I haven't been on here for the past couple of days, been in my sewing room making a quilt. I would like to get it done by Christmas. I'm sorry to hear about your FIL, that's got to be hard.

I am so happy that this year is better!! I hope he's doing well.

Ditto what you've all said about our stamping friends and our SCS hangout. It's the best! Merry Christmas to you all and big hugs!

Hello, everyone, and Merry Christmas! We have spent the last few days getting ready for a houseguest who will be with us until April, when she travels to Israel with a missionary family. We had to clean the attic before we could move all the "stuff" accumulated in the closet over the last twenty years. Honestly, it's amazing what we once thought we couldn't live without, isn't it?

I sincerely wish a blessed and peaceful holiday to you all! It feels like I have made dozens of new friends here and I thank all of you for sharing your skills and being such an inspiration!

Good afternoon ladies! I'm planning on ordering Tombo Mono Refills in bulk but haven't before and I was wondering if any of you buy yours in bulk and if so what company you purchase them from? I'm always trying to hunt up coupons for refills (the three packs at Michaels) and my husband's been saying "why don't you just order them in bulk" so.....

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!

WOW! What an awesome buy! Have fun - love the poinsettia...

Big blizzard here. I am hoping the roads are clear enough for us to travel to my FIL's wake & funeral - we have a four-hour trip.

I'm wanting to find a good deal on TH tattered poinsettias. I know Joanns has the tattered florals on sale, but they don't seem to have the poinsettias. Anyone find those?

Vicki, I know you mentioned the other day that your FIL was not doing well. So sorry that you family had to experience his passing during the holidays. I'm praying for clear roads and safe travel.

Wow! That is a good buy at Michael's. I don't think mine had the poinsettias, but I might stop by tomorrow to check. (Not that I need to buy anything else this year!)

I'm finally back at home again after traveling to be with both or our families. Spent so much of the day catching up with groceries, etc that I haven't had time to stamp yet.

Welcome home Gail. That's the thing about travel. When you get home you have to catch up, then you need to rest from the travel and the catching up.

Glad you had the chance to spend your holiday with families, pretty soon you'll be back & start stamping again. I haven't stamped since last Friday only because I just finished a quilt, maybe tonight I'll get the mojo back.

Val, Michaels also had Spellbinder snowflakes (7) & the tree with 2 ornaments (3) but I went back yesterday as I thought about compulsive buying & put both back....urgh.

Connie... I think it depends on if you would use them or not? that is a very good price for them if you will use them. its still spendy for them to live rent free in your craft room if you just dust them...

Wow Wow wow what a cool craft room!!! Check out all those ribbon carousels!!!! I like your shelves in black!

My craft room has been used for dozens of things since we moved here the latest is craft/computer room. My DH made us these HUGE shelves when we first bought the house. Since this is a very small room we painted them the same color as the walls to keep the room as large as possible. I am sick of the BRIGHT yellow in here (not quite school bus yellow....but it's close!!!) I want to paint in here soon. I like the idea of making black book shelves.... We live in the south and it takes a LONG time for paint to cure. Any one have any ideas on what i could do with my stuff while the paint cures on the shelves...shelves are not movable by the way. I need to get to my craft items on a daily basis.

Is it due to humidity? Maybe look into the Marine Paint, it's made for boats, but cures pretty quick... SMELLS BAD!!!!! It should be cured in 24 hours!!!!! I don't think it needs special prep since it's not gonna float!

hmmmmm...I will look into that and make sure that I paint on a day I can keep windows open.

I am guessing it is the humidity. All I know is that things can stick to the painted shelves WEEKS later!!!! I could also ask the paint store if they recommend anything...you have me thinking now!

YAY!!! Yea when I painted stuff during the Summer I would set it in the sun to dry, thinking that was the smartest place... I don't know if it's chemically altered or what but... apparently that rule of over ???* is there for a reason! LOL

GOOD LUCK and let me see whatcha do!!!!

So, KJ, are your stamps in univenture type binders? That's what it looks like on your shelves. And I assume you still have some in CD cases? Or am I totally off base?

Looks wonderful!
