What I Did Labor Day Weekend

I think Labor Day is supposed to be a time of fun and sharing it with family & friends.  Well, I took it literally and labored all weekend.  I spent it organizing my craft room.  I came to these realizations:

  1. I am a sick woman for buying all this "stuff".  Why do I think I have to have one or two of everything?
  2. If I live to be 110 years old and made something everyday, I would never use all this stuff.
  3. I need to adopt a nursing home and use the cards I make to cheer up the people there.  Some of them have no one to visit them.
  4. I'm sure there are other things I resolved to do while I was working on my craft room but these are the main ones.
Here are some pictures of the "Organize Project."

Thank you for visiting today.  How many of you are as bad as Donna & I about buying crafty stuff?  God Bless You!!!!!  Peggy

Beccy's Place - Bullion Roses

Today is my last post as guest designer for Beccy's Place.  It's been a fun experience.  Beccy is so sweet and easy going.  She creates lovely things.  Like I said last week, I love her flower digis.  This one is called 'Bullion Roses Set'.  You can find it in Beccy's Shop.

Card Supplies:
A2 Card - from a card set I got at Michaels,  Don't you love the Chevron stripe?
Image - Bullion Roses from Beccy Muir at Beccy's Place.  This image is pre-colored so this card was super easy.

I hope you will visit Beccy's shop.  I'm sure you will find something you like.

Thanks for stopping by today.  God loves you and I do too.  God Bless You!!!! Peggy

Card Supplies:
Base card is Silhouetted Online Store file #64592 Pop Up Book Card by Lori Whitlock.
