My husband and I are heading out of town for several days so I will not be updating during that time. Hopefully the problems will all be solved by the time I return because I have some projects that I would like to share with you.
I did want to tell you about the Stampin' Up! (r) special that is coming for June. You will be able to order a new stamp set called Fresh Cuts for $21.95 and you can then add on cute little Fresh Cuts notecards for only $5 (the regular cost will be $8.95, I believe). The little notecards are so cute!! They have a cut out flower on the front so you can put card stock behind to show through. I wanted to give you a link to a GALLERY OF CARDS made with this stamp set and some use the little notecards also. (Click on the capitalized, colored words above to see the gallery!)
Enjoy!! I'll be back in a few days. :o)

So for today I thought that I would show you some pictures of my stamping space for those who have never been to my house. You'll have to try to come over for a camp or class sometime! My room is in my basement. (And it is a little messy in these pictures, but it's an often used, well loved space.)
As you can see, I have six tables that can be arranged any number of ways for whatever is needed for my classes. That makes them very convenient! You can also see the 4 drawer file cabinet that I use for all of my 8 1/2" x 11" paper. I have the 12x12 paper in containers on the bottom of the little bookcase and in a plastic container on one end of the countertop. Too much paper. I hoard paper because I love it, but I don't want to run out especially if it a discontinued package.
I have part of my stamp sets of our built in bookcases, but another part on a little bookcase that my husband made years ago. And the little yellow stickers that you see on some of the stamp sets mean that those are retired! I just love them too much to part with them yet though. :0) I have a hanging shoe holder on the wall to keep those odds and ends close at hand and visible so that I remember to use them. (You know what they say---out of sight, out of mind! So true.) I really need to somehow put my punches out so I can remember to use those, too. But I'm always trying to upgrade and improve my space.
And you can see half of my countertop/desk area in the final picture. I have my ink pads there and all the extra ink pads are on the wall unit. (I use that for my Stazon pads and the In Colors.) I would really like to add some shelves to the wall there so my countertop area would be more usable. Someday.... And all of those drawers and cabinets are stuffed full of supplies as well. Incredible!! Actually as I am sitting here looking around my room, I believe that a coat of paint would be an excellent idea soon. I wonder when I can work that into my schedule....
You can also see some large totes around the room....those are pictures that are patiently waiting to be scrapbooked. Can you imagine so many pictures? Please tell me that you have lots around that need to be done as well. :0) And I'm not even mentioning all the pictures that are currently trapped in my computer from the digital camera.
And in case you are wondering, the tiles on the floor are made into a chess board. They are 12"x12" black and white tiles, and we have huge chess pieces to go with the board. (The king is 12" tall.) Maybe I'll take a picture of them for you sometime.
Have a great day! I hope that you enjoyed the tour of my stamping space today. I'm trying to make my post quickly (so not so detailed) because I am using a telephone connection. I don't want the phone to be tied up all day. Happy stamping!!
