So I jumped in...

and realized the pool was way deeper than I thought.

The Dungeon is an even bigger mess than before - there's stuff EVERYWHERE on both tables, so while the clean-up/move is working, it's super slow.  The fact that I'm in a grab-my-materials-and-dash-upstairs-to-create mode isn't helping anything too.  I'm pretty sure this method of card creation is the reason I have the mess I did when I started the clean-up.

Plus, I have a storage dilemma.  Actually, I have 3:  1)Ribbon, 2) Nestabilities, 3) Punches.  If anyone has any suggestions, I would definitely appreciate them.  

On the plus side, I went through my Stampin' Up! sets and chose 63 to sell.  That's right - 63.  I thought I maybe had that many total, not that I could get rid of that many and still have more.  Obviously, I live in denial.

Jumping in with both feet

So, with a morning off, I jumped into the Dungeon renovation with both feet. I share the area with other stuff, so lots of children's books needed to be gone through, toys picked through, sports equipment moved, etc.

The good news?  I have a table against a wall, my ink caddy has been moved over, and my PTI stamps are all sitting nice and neat in a cd rack on top.

The bad news?  I have an extremely messy table that still needs to be cleaned up.  It's BAD - I can't see the surface.

I'm also going through all my Stampin' Up! sets to see what I want to keep and sell.  I've gone through the first round, we'll see how many of the "I don't know" sets get put into the sell pile.

Another year past

I really need to start getting back to this place more often. It's all dusty and messy like the Dungeon - which is hopefully going through a major makeover soon.

I've been cardmaking, but not posting anything on Splitcoast or here (bad me.)

Here is one of my more recent cards:
I had the two marigolds already stamped and waiting to be colored and they fit right into the colors listed for the CC339 (wow, I've been gone a long time - the last Color Challenge I did on SCS was CC217.) The marigolds and sentiment are from Papertrey Ink - Year of Flowers - Marigolds and Year of Flowers - Sweet Peas. The paper is mostly Stampin' Up! - Always Artichoke, Really Rust (no Cajun Craze) and So Saffron dp; the paper the images are on is Papertrey Stamper's Select White.

Here's to hoping I keep up the habit of posting here,
