It’s here , WOYWW#180 more riveting footage of what is on my craft desk!! Well, there is a bunch of us that like hopping around the world to see what the MoJo is stirring up!! It starts here: http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/ at Julia Dunnit’s wonderful blog! Enjoy!!
I thought I would put this picture in, to give you something pretty to look at from the start!
I’ve made a bunch of cards this week, but on my desk to day is a project that I started earlier, and am expanding! I started with taking my Kanji Stamps of their wood mounts and turning them into cling mounts, stored in CD cases in a tower. The tower took up 1/3 of my cutting desk.
That desk is shared with my cutting machines and sewing machine (yes it is a little cramped in here – not complaining, just need to make every inch count!!) I am running out of room and memory. I am starting to forget which stamps I have in my Asian collection. So in an effort to make more room so I can see what I have, I have unmounted now 197 stamps. I wanted to put them right in my work area instead of on the other side of the room. So I am putting them in a small cart that slides under my desk. I also keep my scripture and "Our Daily Bread" stamps there along with colored scraps and on the top my Genesis cutter, a very handy workstation!
So in these two drawers I have in an indexed order about 400 stamps, with room to grow!!
Now the question remains should I proceed to unmount more of my Asian collection so that I have room to view other collections? (by the way I tried to move the camera to make my leg in my jean skirt not look fat. I don't think it worked.)
I'd like to have all the Asian stamps as un mounted except the magenta (they would go on the magenta shelf. that would give me another shelf and a half.
I told one of my dear stamping friends what I was doing and she just looked at me like I need professional help to over come this impulse, She said the thought of unmounting hers made her want to cry!! I have the drawer space and I can laminate more 130# paper to make cling cards, the 197 stamps required 24 pieces of 8.5x 5.5 cards.
Now at least I have more sewing/cutting room
At last is my work desk, after I finished the unmounting!! not too bad
Rubber stamping is a wonderful art and helps me to reach out, But I try to keep everything in perspective and remember this
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
I am very fond of these things, But I want to remember my God, and Husband, Family and Friends near and far are my true treasures!
Thank you for stopping by and my God bless you with Abundant treasures!
And Lots of stamps and inks!! Paper too!
