Every cloud has a silver lining!

The atrocious weather over the last few days has meant more time for crafting!

 I've been beavering away in my craft room and this is a selection of  new baby congratulation cards that I made.

A Start on the Stash

Well, I have made a start on using my new stash! ( see last post). It has taken several hours to find a place in the craft room for it all and there are still 2 boxes of papers that I haven't really looked at yet!

 The lady had accumulated soo many items, most of which had been unopened or untouched for a while due to her ill health. 

They have really sparked my mojo and I have had a fun time making a small dent in the stash.

She also had many papers, stamps or stickers that are not in my usual style, so it will stretch me and take me out of my comfort zone!

There are lots of  12 x 12 scrapbook papers - so I really must get round to printing out some of the family photos and making up some scrapbook pages!

OMG - What Have I Done!

I have a small craft room - well,  just the box room of the house, which is already crammed with 2 desks and all my craft stuff - and now I have just gone and bought a load more!

A lady nearby has had to give up card making due to ill health unfortunately, and I have just bought her entire stash off her including the storage units

There are so many papers, embellishments, stamps, ribbons, stickers and card stock, that I now have no excuse for buying anything new for the next 10 years!
