Thankful…..

There are a lot of things I’m thankful for these days…. to many to mention!  

I made this card for one of the homework assignments for my KICKSTART class.  It was a lot of fun to make. Sorry about the crappy photo.  That’s on my list of “things I need to get better at”.  LOL!

Took 2 years, but now 2 for 2!!!

Yep… it’s me again!  I do have to say I’m really enjoying the KICKSTART classes!!!  I’ve learned so much!  One of things we’ve been discussing is organization, so I thought I would share with you the way I’ve been organizing my stamps.  I have a ton of stamps, but I found I didn’t use them because they weren’t organized and I could never find what I was looking for.  Just a couple of weeks ago, in fact, I spent many days organizing them in a system that worked for me.  

I purchased some colorful binder boxes from Unikeep in Mango, Kiwi & Ocean… love them!  














So then I purchased some EZ Mount Storage Panels to put in each of the binder boxes.  I then stamped all my stamps on 4X6 index cards, including the name of the stamp & binder/location it would be stored in.  


Here are some of my awesome Unity Stamp Company stamps on the storage panels. 


Anyway, that’s how I’m storing my stamps these days and… it works for me!  I can fit 4 pages of red rubber stamps or 7 pages of clear stamps in each binder.  I hope someone finds this useful!


And so it begins…

Well, I’ve had this blog for about 2 years, but today is my very first entry. <gasp>  My intentions were good, but there just never seems to be enough time.  So why now?  Well, I’ve decided to participate in …


I do have to say that I’m enjoying the KICKSTART class!  Here is my first creation from the class, in which I’m using some techniques that either I haven’t used before or I haven’t used often.  



One of the “new for me” techniques is using Ranger’s Perfect Pearls which I’ve used on the flowers in blush.  Not so sure if you can see the pearlescent effect or not, but here is a close up.

Well, that’s all for now folks!  Not bad for my first post huh?  Only took me 2 years to get here!
