I have and still use most of what's in your graveyard! I even have marbled vellum! Not scented cards, which I never purchased, and I never did quilling or tea bag folding. Everything else is still...

The cat in that costume is probably Puss in Boots, from the nursery rhyme/fairy tale. He's a 17th century guy, and a search for him might turn something up.

I stand through the whole crafting process. I sit at a desk all day every day, and I stand up as much as possible. I also like the added leverage in stamping and a birds-eye view of the project.
