I 'wish' I could keep up with this blog better! I have been busy getting ready for our move. It is a good thing I don't have to pack it all, I don't know how I could possibly do it! All I have to do is get everything in order. Not that my house is "out of order" but...I am purging. Getting rid of all the stuff we have carried across the country with us that we really don't need. Mostly it comes down to paper. I think I have a full rainforest worth of paper in my house. It can be overwhelming to go through paper, as most everyone knows, so the way I do it is to put on a movie or show that I like and just sit and sort. I have a big trash can, a shredder, and scissors. If it has personal stuff on it, it gets shredded. If it is a keeper, I sort it into the pile it needs to be in to file it later.
I have TONS of magazines! Mostly scrapbooking, home decor, and craft. I quickly leaf through each magazine and cut out the pages I want to keep. Out of about 50 magazines, there were only about 20 pages that I kept. Talk about a waste of money! I am going to stop buying magazines! I now have a big box of scrapping magazines to pass along to someone else. If you are local and you want some, let me know. The box is too big to ship, sorry!
I wanted to share this totally adorable card that Shari made me for my 40th birthday. She is SO very creative! I love the glittery stems on here. Just the right touch of bling.
Hope you all are enjoying your summer!
