PATSTAMPS STAMPIN' SPOT!

I think on of my favorite things about stamping is finding new containers and organizational things for my stampin' room.  Constantly rearranging which always keeps me on my toes and wondering where did I put that.  Someday will everything find its perfect spot, never to be moved again?  I am sure not as some new tool or container will come out that will be more perfect than the last. 

Many of you already know that this past month my Mom moved in with us, which left us going through a lifetime of possessions.  It is a real eye opener that you work all your life to accumulate things and then towards the end you give it all away.  One of the items was the incredible 1946 desk it has lots of little compartments and cool dividers.  Behind the left door is an extension that pops up and out to give more stamping space (in past years used for a typewriter).  My mom was thrilled when I agreed to take the desk some things are hard to part with. 

Well that lead to another issue my punches.  These racks had been on my wish list for some time and now I "needed" to order them from IKEA .  They arrived in two days.

Stampin' Up! Holiday Place Settings

Holiday Place Setting I have been asked to demonstrate some Holiday Place Settings for Conlins Furniture Store on their special Ladies Night!  I was excited to see a clip of Shelli Gardner (co-founder of Stampin' Up!) on "Studio 5" a morning talk show on KSL, Salt Lake City's NBC affiliate.  It is perfect and just what I needed to inspire me for my upcoming event. 

Here is the link so you too can enjoy seeing these beautiful table settings.
