NOT ALL DAYS ARE FOR STAMPING

June 24, 2015

While I haven’t stamped at all today, I have been busy in my stamp room.  I was challenged by my coach Brenda to take a power hour this morning and take a stab at my work space.  It was definitely driving me bonkers.

After about 3 power hours I made myself proud and happy:

I feel such a sense of relief and pleasure.  I’ve been pulling retired items from here and there in my cupboards, drawers and miscellaneous boxes for several weeks and those goodies are all categoried and placed out of the stamp room.

As an unknown reward of sorts, my husband pulled out our old dirty, dingy, white (?) plastic deck chairs from somewhere, washed them real well and then WE painted the backs and bottoms of them so they’ll ultimately coordinate with the table he resurrected a few weeks ago.

Stampin’ Up! isn’t the only company that uses fun and catchy product names:  Key Lime and Sun Yellow.  Nice and bright and refreshing.

Tomorrow I stamp in my clean place.   Thanks for stopping in today.  Maybe I’ve inspired you to resurrect some old ‘furniture’ and give it a new life.  The change sure makes me smile!
