Using It Up!

The last Monday of 2013, really the only thing of any note about this last Monday is that Steve has the day off and he is about to paint the kitchen! Yeay (this was just delayed)! We're going a few shades of lighter yellow.  My kitchen is tiny, we painted the cabinets an ivory color and the walls yellow about 3 years ago and we really like it but we are getting ready to reface the cabinets and go to a whiter white with them. So my pretty painted brick needed a little refreshing to!  I 'll post a picture when its done!

With Christmas falling on a Wednesday last week I find I am totally off what day it was, today is no better, it feels like a Saturday to me.  It's kinda funny how the odd days off and not  normal church schedule has left my mental calendar in a fog!!  How about you??

I did get a few cards made last night for the Use It Up Challenge, actually I made nine cards and that didn't even seem to make a dent in the left over bin!  And because this seems to be a much bigger project than I originally thought, I tossed a ton of scraps!  These were good cardstock pieces but I have been hanging onto them for 3 years and hardly touched them.  So they had to go, they were occupying far too much of my craft room real estate. Now what I kept fits in three drawers:

 
 

Last nights' Cards bring my UIUC total to 97:




 
These were all made to be used in OSA  RAKS and Birthday Greetings.


Made earlier in the week:




 
 These sweet cards were made using images from Patsy Paterno (with Permission) click over to her blog, you will be so blessed!!
 

 
 
 I have also been busy this weekend indexing all my digital scripture verses, sentiments and indexing my sentiment/scripture in rubber.  I've finished the digital side and am going to make books with them today.  Last night, a whole lot of printing!
  
I'm putting together a bunch of stamping goodies for one of my friends, I sure don't need two of anything, so my friend gets a bunch of happy rubber!!
 
Doing the indexing is part of my ongoing Stamp art organization project.
 
 
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have an awesome day!!
