Welcome to the MESS!

 NO cards to put up again. Well, I actually have cards, but they are not put together!

As you will see by the pictures I am posting, I'm actually working on cards.They are just not finished.

 I hesitated to post these pictures. My craft space is down right embarrassing. I actually had to leave it
this way last night after dinner and just CLOSE the door. I can't work in that MESS!  

Maybe some of you can relate. Or is it just me that has almost every stamp set, tool and ink pad out when trying to decide what to create?

I did have a plan eventually. I am making blank cards to send my granddaughter who is in Afghanistan with the Marines. I have been laboring for weeks and weeks on what to send. 
She's young and trendy, and well,
I'm "mature" and not so much.

:} :} :}

Plus, I tend to have a difficult time with doing cards without a lot of layers and do dads. You know, sweet and simple, yet striking. 

I have labored for weeks and even had several made that are now gracing my trash can.

 Since I really wanted to get this goodie package of snacks and cards out to her, I had to CASE cards. 
I know that is not a bad thing, but it usually
makes me feel less creative. 

But, I'm so thankful for all the wonderful, creative 
people that are demos for SU. They are so
free about sharing their talent and made my
creating process so much easier.

I hope to have pictures up by Monday and I 
will give credit to where credit is due.

There is the pile of 6 cards to the left, 
begging to be "dressed up "

This side of the room is actually not to bad. 
 Of course, I didn't take a picture of the floor under this station!

Thanks for stopping by and allowing me to ramble. I hope you have a CREATIVE and wonderful day. I'm off to my Woman's Bible Study then to do some errands. Hopefully, I'll get back to the "mess" later today. Yeah, we'll see how that goes...



  1. I'm sure all us stampers can relate! Creative people are messy! Whether quilting, sewing, stamping, cooking! My husband says I spend more time cleaning up than anything! How nice of you to make cards for her. I'm sure she will love whatever you send her. Have a great day!

    1. Thanks for the sweet reply and encouragement.


I would love to hear from you!
