STAMPS DONE

okey dokey smokey.  stamp reorg is DONE!  D-O-N-E!  here ya go...


THIS IS SAMPLE
first i went through ALL my stamps;  ALL my stamps are 
unmounted.  if they come on wood, i unmount them.
takes up way less space.
then i place them on a piece of acetate, get me
some cheap (really cheap) sketch pads (usually in the
kids section for like $2 a pad - i buy about 8);
cut them down to 5x7, cover the stamps with ink
and then lay the paper on top and rub (sure beats doing
each stamp individually)
i use AVERY ELLE stamp storage envelopes (which
i absolutely love).  however, you can use 6x8 or 7x7
baggies, they are cheaper and work just as well.

ok.  1st... each box holds about 35-40 of the stamp
envelopes and depending on the size of the stamp -
it can be anywhere from 1 large background stamp
to about 10-15 smaller stamps on each sheet.
THEN i categorize them.  i cut out circles;
printed out the categories and then pasted
them on sturdy cardboard i had lying around.
the above is what the FINISHED product looks like.

FYI:  i have 12 boxes with 35-40 envelopes each....
that should tell you ABOUT how many stamps i have.

this took me 3 weeks and i hope it'll be about 3 YEARS
before i decide to do this again!

now off to play.  i HOPE i can find everything!  LOL

  2. Stef, you are so organized! I am definitelyimpressed.One of these days I'm going to unmount my stamps. I don't buy mounted stamps anymore. Usually clear cling stamps but I still have some mounted ones that I use. Such a great idea for storage. The twins will be two month old tomorrow on the 6th. Time is flying by and it's amazing how far they've come in two months. Have an awesome week.

Short Post

a new month has begun.  december got here fast.... real fast.  i'm still looking for APRIL!!!

i'm just about done on my stamps.  i guess it's more of a cleaning up and out then a reorganizing because they're all still in the same place, save for the ones i no longer use and will ship them off to a few friends.  it's taken me 3 weeks! geeze louize!  way too many stamps... yet i keep buying more.  call me CRAZY!

anyway, no craftiness, no creating and not even working on my Etsy.. so this post is short.

enjoy each day and be thankful for it.  i'll be back soon.

New Chairs

so i trot off to my local consignment shop in search of a wine rack.  instead, i found 2 chairs that i fell in love with.  the price tags said $25 each.  well, i thought that was a steal so i bought them.  they were going to replace a loveseat.  the consignment shop took the loveseat.  is this great or what?


what's even more of a blessing is... when i went to pick up the chairs the store owner said ...
her: i'm so sorry but i made a mistake on the price of the chairs.
me:  oh?
her:  yes.  i rang up the wrong color price tag.  the tag was purple and i rang it up wrong.
me:  and????
her:  the chairs were 1/2 price!!! so instead of $25 each they are $13 each.
me:  you're kidding right?
her:  no.  i'm so sorry.
me:  GOD IS GOOD!
her:  amen

so she totally reversed the 1st charge and changed it to the new one.  now, for sure, i'm gonna LOVE these chairs!  they are sooooooo comfortable to.

truth is... GOD IS GOOD.

A New Journey

so i decided to try a new endeavor!  i went to a craft fair and picked up some YOUNIQUE makeup.  everyone raves about their mascara - which i DID NOT purchase.  i got me some liquid foundation and i absolutely love it. LOVE IT!  so i then treated myself to their PRIMER and a LIPSTICK.  well, holy moly!  that primer not only makes my skin feel sooooooooooooooo soft, but what i found out is that if you use primer the makeup DOES NOT sink into your skin, therefore leaving a smooth look!  now how cool is that????  as for the lipstick?  i finally found one that actually stays on ALL DAY!
needless to say, i heard it calling me.  so i got hold of a girl i know who sells it and..... BADDA BOOM, BADDA BING... i joined her team.

i am now holding my FIRST virtual party - which means... you can see, check out and purchase it all without even leaving your house!!!  the party runs until the 16th of this month.  sooooooooo, who want's to check it out and get me started?  you can find it all here…
