As most of you know, my husband and I have recently become empty-nesters. We have spent the last year contemplating whether or not to sell our house and downsize so we have been going on the assumption that we will get it ready to sell and take care of some much needed paint and minor repairs. If we decide to sell we will be ready and if not we have fixed the things that needed fixing anyway. I have also spent the last year going room by room and purging 11 years of accumulation and either donating or packing up that which we don’t need or use every day.
With the exception of my craft room.
That is a year-long task in and of itself. Between the fabric, the yarn, the embroidery supplies, and an endless supply of Styrofoam, acrylic paints, ribbons, jingle bells, buttons, ornament blanks, stamp camp supplies, etc., etc., I could easily fill a small warehouse and we have not even touched on the stamps, paper, ink, dies, vinyl, embellishments, and every tool known to man for my paper-crafting hobby and Stampin’ Up! business.
It is a monumental task which I started this past weekend. I have come to the conclusion that the majority of the excess SH#* in our house belongs to me. (which I will vehemently deny if you bring this topic up to my husband)
The room desperately needs to be painted as I am the one that painted it in the first place and I am a lousy painter. I love my cheerful, bright apple green walls but I am afraid that I am probably the only one who does (as confirmed by my husband and youngest son) so it needs to go. So, all but my basic necessities are getting boxed up and put away for my new craft room, wherever that may be. But, there is much purging to be done and I am making a huge mess (which will soon get better) but oh the goodies I am finding in the process!
So, stay tuned for an announcement on a HUGE crafty garage sale in the very near future but in the meantime, I have a very special deal for you. I have quite a collection of brand new, never used, retired Stampin’ Up! stamps, kits, and accessories with values up to $30. Since they have been sorely neglected I am anxious to see them go to a good home where they will get some much needed use and attention.
