Why I Haven't Been Stamping

Yippee - I got it done!!!  I have been working on cleaning out some things and totally rearranging my stamping area.  I woke up at about 2:30 this morning and couldn't get back to sleep, so I got up and finished!  I think I'll share four "during" photos and two "afters."  This is a during:)  I had already cleaned out some shelves and I think the entire bottom of the hutch that you see to the right in the picture.  That is no longer in my stamping room.  You can KIND of see how it might look if it were clean, although there is a LOT of extra stuff piled all over.  Here are three more of my total mess.  




And here are a couple shots of what it looks like right now.




I think I'm really going to like it.


I'm still probably going to be "scarce" for the next few weeks.  Starting next Friday, my husband will be on vacation for just over two weeks.  We'll be busy and I won't have much stamping time.  I will be sure to get my Repeat Impressions Stamp of the Week done for Mondays, though, and the "WHAT IF? Wednesday" sketches, too.  I'll also get as much other stamping done as I can!


Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Wow, Lynette, this looks wonderful! I've just been trying to re-organize how I store some of my stamping stuff and it's A LOT of work... especially in the tiny space I have to work with. Sure wish I had an area with all the shelves like you do!! Maybe someday.

My first thought when looking at the during photos was "she may be a clean and simple stamper, but that is not a clean and simple room!!!'. You worked a miracle - such a daunting task. I need to do the same, and did some a couple of weeks ago, but the whole idea of it just wears me out!
