While I am waiting for the stamp room to dry and get things back in order, I decided to go through my retired SU stamps sets. When I moved into the new stamp room, I boxed them all up and just stuck them in the closet. I knew that one day I would have time to go through them and see what I wanted to keep or get rid of. Well, today was the day. So far I’ve only gone through the stamp sets, but will have an accessories/tool list in the next day or so. If you, or anyone you know, are interested in modestly priced SU sets, you can find them on my new blog page, Stampin’ UP! FOR SALE.
Edited to add: I have posted more sets and tools.
What do you think of my new banner? The one I’ve been using was my first banner made by Beth Silaika at Freckled Fun Designs. I’ve made a couple myself and then had another made around December. None of them seemed to reflect my style any longer and I felt an update was in order. I was talking to Beth the other day, when I mentioned to her that I would love to have a new banner. Well! Within a day, Beth had a new sample for me to look at, we dinked around with the fonts and this is what she came up with. I LOVE IT! Even better, I sent it onto Mallory, my eyes, to see what she thought, and she loved it. As I told Beth, it’s quite hard to find something a 19-year-old likes.
Anyhoo, if you are looking to update your blog’s look, I would suggest you take a look at some of the samples Beth has made. I had a little problem trying to get to her site the other day. I typed in the wrong web address and was redirected to another banner site. I thought it was odd, and tried again a different way. I was typing in freckledfundesigns, but each time I typed it in I was still redirected to another banner site. Here’s the link you will need when you go check out Beth’s other samples: http://freckledfundesigns.blogspot.com/. I forgot to add the blogspot!
If you are wondering where my stamping is today – under water. Once again I have had to take the carpet up out of my stamp room and pull out the carpet cleaner to suck up the water. I had a faint thought today of just pulling up all the carpet squares and leaving it the concrete floor. Nope, too cold on the bare feet. Luckily, when we built the room for Kate, instead of putting carpet in, we used carpet squares. A few weeks ago I only had to pull up about 8 squares, today maybe 12. But at least the floor is dry and I have the squares all propped up to dry. I think I’ll wait until tomorrow to try and get things back to normal, it’s supposed to rain more tonight.
Tomorrow is my sister’s birthday, and since she reads my blog every morning, I think I’ll have a special surprise for her tomorrow.
I hope that the rest of you have a pleasant day and start your weekend off just right.
