Hi there - well birthday over & done with for another year. Had a fit of the glooms about it this year - we normally go away but it didn't work out date wise with other commitments this time & so had a normal day at the office. Did get cards & texts from family etc - so need to stop being such a grump !
DH did his best to make it a nice day with pressies (lovely Joules sweatshirt in a yummy plum colour - all chosen by him !) and cooked my supper for me. Its so nice to be cherished !
On my desk this week is Day 28 of Learn Something New - I'm dead proud of myself for keeping up & just 2 days left ! I've resisted looking at 2009's book (which didn't get finished until March this year !) but it will be fun to compare the 2 years when the month is over ! Next stop Journal Your Christmas !! I've already bought the papers I'm going to use ! Sad or what !
And some photos of our friends wedding last Friday ready to be scrapped this weekend - I made them a mini book on Sunday & posted it to them - not sure if it's their kind of thing but I enjoyed doing it & hope they like it !
So a question for everyone - storing your stamps - I am trying to stick to buying unmounted and clear stamps as just haven't the room for wooden ones (but do get tempted sometimes !!) currently have them in folders by manufacturer - some of which are bulging & so a major sort out is looming.
I can't decide whether to stick by manufacturer or to move to subject matter - florals, houses (I seem to have a bit of a thing for quirky house stamps !!), swirls, birds & animals, cutsie, Christmas etc etc - what does everyone else do ? What seems to work best ? Do you keep a reference book with images from all your stamps in it for ease of finding just the "right" image when you want it ? I've got one but its a bit higgledy-piggledy as I've added bits to pages here there & everywhere ! All hints & tips gratefully received !!
One extra picture this week - my desk at work ! I had to take card & the faithful trimmer into work to make place cards for a product presentation today - so work desk relocated this morning !
