Today I took a look at my craft room and felt a bit saddened by two things: 1- I have yet to decorate it and 2- it's a total mess (there's a glimpse of the disorder in the above pic). So, I did a bit of organizing and inventoried my granny squares for my next blanket project - 30 squares so far (yay!) and about 50 more to go (boo!). I used the same wool yarn from KnitPicks which I really love!
I've become kind of obsessed with collecting text stamps. The ones in the pic are just a taste of what I've gathered in the past couple of months. I've been using them to personalize mailing packages, gifts, and school projects among other things. Part of the appeal has been that most of my stamps have come from Studio g. They have a great assortment and are super cheap (just a buck!). You can find them in either at Michaels or Joann.
My buttons were everywhere - in jars, drawers, plastic cups (don't ask). I swung by the Container Store and stocked up on some acrylic compartment boxes. What a difference! Now they're all in one place and color-coded.
I also finally got around to organizing my batch of new brooches. They're all stamped, packaged and ready to ship out!
In the words of Thomas Merton "Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance, order, rhythm and harmony." I love it when things come together! Sue
