I KNEW that would get your attention!! First of all, this is a baby announcement I did for my nephew's new baby daughter, Vivian (don't you just LOVE that name??). I made 26 of these "babies" over the weekend. It was sooo fun to be able to channel my energy into something creative (and I hafta admit I was inspired, once again, by a card I saw SOMEwhere on Pinterest ... no idea where, or who made it ... I'm really gonna have to start paying attention ... so if this looks like something YOU made, please let me know and I'll give ya some credit!) I seriously love me that little stocking punch! Just trimmed it down at the top to create booties. Soooo sad that it's not going to be carried over into the new big catalog this year ... sigh ...
Stamps: Stitched Stockings, Petitie Pairs
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride, Whisper White

Now, on to the Bermuda Triangle (aka my stamp/craft room)!! This is seriously how this place has looked for the past two months (well, it didn't start out THIS bad, but it was a cumulative effort, for sure!)! It was really kinda depressing ... I usually try to keep my room relatively clean in between projects so that it I don't hafta start a project by cleaning up! Scary, isn't it??? It took me half the day, even WITH the aid of a shovel!!
And here it is AFTER!! Ahhhhhhhh, THAT'S better!! I was very proud of myself while I made those baby announcements, too! I used the "clean-as-you-go" method It really does work surprisingly well, so why don't I ALWAYS do that??? I guess it is because sometimes Creative Genius takes over!!
