- Hoarding papers, stamps, flowers, brads, eyelets... you name it I've got it!!!
- buying stamps
- computer blogs........( this one from Hubby who says I spend WAY TOO MUCH TIME on the computer).
and so it goes on....
Over the past few days I've found other bloggers like me who suffer this addiction... Anne, Deborah, Paula ....but to name a few.... and we are all uniting .... this year we ARE going to use our hoarded stuff!!!!
Anne has a wonderful challenge to use 3 hoarded items in a card.... see Paula's blog...she has started....
Today I got a chance to use some stuff!!! The leader of our Family Group rang and asked me to make a Sympathy card for one of the woman in the group whose Dad had passed away on the 5th. Yvonne wants to send it from all the group with our thoughts... so as it was short notice... she needed it this afternoon .... I had to fish in the stash to see what I could come up with.
So what's hoarded? The CB folder was purchased after a class where we used it... but hasn't touched paper since!!!!... the corrugated green card was bought about 2 years ago ( can't even think why as I wasn't even doing cards then!) and the paper for the strip was from a free gift at Stamp Group about 6 months ago... holding onto it for that something special....like Paula not sure what!. The same goes for the flowers which I cut out of a piece of DCWV card matting that was also in a free pack from Stamp Group just before Christmas.... too nice to use so got put away..... but bit the bullet and cut it up...( its all glittery)
Not sure if that classes as 3 item of hoarder stuff for Anne's challenge but will enter it anyway....
As you can see from the photo taken around mid-day, we are having another fabulous summer day. It started a bit cool.... well at least at 4.00am when we got up to take the parents to the airport.... but improved mid-morning. By mid afternoon - well it was very warm. Hubby went for a swim while I lay on the grassy bank by the beach and read in the sun. Bliss... and nothing says Summer more than corn on the cob cooked on the barbeque in it's husks.... that was starters for dinner tonight followed by rib-eye steaks and a Greek salad.... I just LOVE summer!!!! ( sorry to you American and European readers suffering the cold!!!)
Well thanks for stopping by.... I'm off to have an icecream for dessert!!! Take care
