Welcome to Monday, friends! I've done quite a bit of stamping since my last post, but none of it is included here today. Instead, I have some just-for-fun-hanging-out-with-my friends (you) stamp room photos. But first -- Blogger issues...
#2: Email notification of blog comments. As of this writing that handy feature has disappeared. I hope it's temporary. Since there may be a few bloggers who haven't heard of the fix yet, I wanted to pass along that tidbit. In order to receive email notifications, comment on your own post and then be sure to click the box right below your name in the "choose an identity" section. The box is labeled "follow-up comments will be sent to (your email address)". I hope this helps those of you who were yet unaware of the fix.
Okay, moving along to the fun stuff...
Just a little something that kept me away from stamping for a little bit. I've done another stamp purge and reorganization. Tough choices were made, but living in the real world of a smallish stamp room with limited storage space, this is the way it must be.
I can't possibly use all the stamps I've collected. The drawer pictured below holds 22 stamps, and I have 24 drawers like this stuffed full of stamps. There are also several shelves of Stampin' Up, two baskets of Power Poppy, and four boxes of miscellaneous holiday stamps -- Valentines, St. Pat's, Easter, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas.
Pictured below is my basket of not yet used stamps. It's not bad, really. Two are sentiments and two are sets I've used all but one stamp each. Three sets are Christmas and will be used in due time. I was making good progress. Then along came the latest Power Poppy release. Hey, it's their first since before Christmas and I do use my Power Poppy over and over again. As if I was not going to get the new Power Poppy, sheesh! Some I already have in digital. Oh, yes... not pictured are the digital stamps I've not yet used. Actually, their number has dwindled considerably. Again... progress. Relatively speaking.
But then there are the not yet used dies. To be fair, some are seasonal, purchased on a super sale, and their season has not yet come. Others I have specific plans for, but, honestly, with this many stamps and dies it takes a while to get around to everything.
So... now that I've bared all I'm hoping I'll produce so many cards you'll get tired of seeing them. Every card I make finds a home. Most are mailed by me. Some are given to friends. Occasionally I sell a batch. I can never make enough to keep up with needs.
Just thought it would be fun to do this post.
So, what's your story? Do you have a not yet used hoard or do you use it as soon as you get it? Are you loving on the old stamps once in a while, too? Do tell, please! Back to stamping shortly. I'm glad you could visit today and I'll see you again soon!
