One weekend a month my husband is on "drill", when Steve is on drill I spend my Saturday as a volunteer at a local shop that supports a ministry to feed those in need.
I enjoy the Gals that I work with very much and the time goes by fast! This is that weekend for us and I have to say I'm really having a good time in my craft room and I know I won't want to brave the bad weather we are having and go to work. I'm a wimp.
I'm still working on my Christmas cards, they are done and now I have to address them and get them in the mail. Hopefully tomorrow!
I thought I'd show you a few cards I've made this week that weren't Christmas themed.
For an Oriental Stamp Arts Swap - the theme is black plus gold

I've come up with a little challenge for myself, to de-clutter and keep the scraps under control. I think I'll dedicate my weekend craft time to clearing out things and not starting new projects. This seems like a good use of time and supplies.
I've tossed everything in to one container and will make cards from this mini stash and then toss the rest on Monday.
I do have drawers for scrap paper, but if I could eliminate those and get more cards made I would be very happy!!
Looks like I have the bits for a few more cards, I'll make this a Monday posting.
Last night in the wee hours I made 5 cards from "scraps"
I'm also working at getting my craft room in better order, seems like I have lots of little things in disarray. I've gotten a lot done today including cleaning up my computer and backing up files!!.
I alpha ordered my scripture box, these are scriptures that I have printed and organized:
Oops this is the before photo!!
This makes it much easier for me to find what I am looking for when I need a sentiment.
I redid some of my supply shelves to make things less visually cluttered;
Colored card stock for layering and
my cut 12x12 pads into 6x6 pads
Below that my company cut 6x6 pads and 8x8 and a few other sizes
The shelves are really nice and straight, it's just the photographer (me).
I love working from these 6x6 pads!
My card base Card stock - uncut
This was jammed up with shipping supplies, I moved those to a closet and put my un-cut 12x12
My Friend Lori Kinney made that beautiful cross stich sampler for me!!
Tidied my cut cardstock and envelopes. A2, A5, A6, A7 sizes
The closet where I keep all my ribbon, fibers, shipping and cleaning supplies:
