I've been busy

I started a new job last Monday. So that is messing with my crafting schedule! I am only working part time so it won't interfere TOO much!!I went back to the same restaurant I managed for 13 years. I left there in 2004 to open my own Bar/Restaurant and sadly, we closed it last year in August. In September I started working at Hobby Lobby just for the holiday season. I ♥ LOVED♥ that job. Most of the money they paid me stayed right there!!! Now I am back on my old stompin' grounds!! I didn't realize how much I missed the tips!! I went to JoAnns on Monday and bought 4 new stacks of paper! They had the Immortal Love stacks on clearance. So I bought one plus the cardstock one and A Formal Affair and Tattered Time.

Then I decided I wasn't happy with the way I stored my stamps. I had some of them in the packages and all the others unmounted and put in CD cases. 37 of them and I found it so time consuming to find the one I wanted so I put them in a binder. Well, two binders actually but I think I am going to like this much better. I better, it took me long enough!!
the ones that are not still in the packages, I stamped on a piece of white card stock and put the stamps on the sheets of plastic I have saved from my cricut carts. I had so many of those, I had stopped saving them because I wondered what I would ever do with them all. Now I can start saving them again!!

Now I need to get busy on my stamp pad holder made from foam board. I got the instructions and the foam board a long time ago but I just haven't got around to it. But that is the next project!!
Just wanted to let you all know what happened to me!! I am still here, just been distracted. I now have 53 followers thanks to Momo!! That is more than doubled since she had us post our links!! I am thinking about doing some blog candy. *(now that I am working and have some money!!)* Is there any new tool or something that you think would be a good thing to win? I cannot afford a cricut cart but give me some ideas of what to get!!


  1. Congrats on the job! Having a little spending money for the hobby is always a good thing. :)

    Thanks for visiting my blog, and I'm glad you're enjoying the freebies!
