Still purging!

It is time to get really serious about purging my studio since I will be moving in a couple of months. I am tired of hauling all this stuff every time I move!

Last week, I filled a couple of good sized boxes with punches, 12x12 designer paper, a few wood mounted stamps, & a lot of ribbon and took them to an elementary school that is located in the southern part of the county. it felt good to know that these things went somewhere where they will be used.  I had some of the items for almost five years!  If I hadn't used them by now, it's obvious that I never would.

Next up for purge are stamps and stamp sets.

Studio Purge Continues!

No pictures today, but rather some rambling thoughts!

I am still working (albeit slowly!) on purging my studio.  The other day, I went through all of my punches and pulled out quite a few that I know I will never use.  Some are brand new and/or having matching stamp sets.  Those stamp sets were pulled off the shelf and added to the pile.  A couple of the punches and matching sets have already been posted on the "Purge to Splurge" group on Facebook.   More will be added later to that group.

I keep putting off going through all of my patterned paper. There is way too much of it!  I know I will feel better getting rid of paper that I bought years ago and have never used.

Last night, I started a Christmas card using the July 2015 paper collection from Heartfelt Creations.  It will be a nice card once it's finished.  I like how Heartfelt Creations makes printed card fronts that you can cut out, embellish & stamp, then glue onto a card base.
