Finally hit the paper stash and made some cards. Of course I think I have more paper now than when I started. I didn't buy more but it seems to multiply when I use it. Anyone else have that problem!?

Absolutely! I start with 1 sheet of paper but end with several. Even though they may be smaller they still seem to take up more storage space. Have you watched any of the 6x6 tutorials on youtube?  They've helped me reduce the amount of scrap paper I produce. Then I also go on embellishment making or gift tag making binges sometimes when the pile starts to be too, too much or I teach volunteer cardmaking classes to reduce my residual pile of scraps. Every little bit helps, right? Good luck with your stash!

Super proud of Lana! She's going to do a great job next year!

Great use for the doilies and I love the bouquet! Only thing I still have blooming are my mock orange bushes. They'd look great with your lilacs.

I am impressed but not surprised Smiley.
Ditto! Nice going, Lana!

Will start on some more crafts for DM as soon as I finish the Geezer projects for Annchen, the HP quilt block for CLM, and the 75 bookmarks for the children's hospital (just need to satin stitch the edges). And come up with some craft projects for an unspecified number of people to make during OHCE Week (Home Extension). Then there are all those pesky WIPs to deal with (child-size crocheted afghan, crib sheets for darling g-daughter, doll clothes for 7 great-great-nieces, and a few dozen quilts, to name a few). I'm definitely an ADD crafter - great at starting things, but easily distracted by new projects.  Grin

Gorgeous beading, Onyxnox, and so clever to make the pieces interchangeable!

Anna, I'm still puttering away at my projects for Annchen, so I'm glad to know I'm not the only late geezer. Since I started babysitting my baby granddaughter, my crafting time has dwindled to almost nothing.

In college I had a dorm room to myself, so I tended to be a minimalist then. As a teacher, people often commented about how organized my room was. At home it's an entirely different story. I live with my dh, adult daughter #1, her fiancee, and their 6 indoor cats. Teaching resources still clog my den and part of the garage even though I've given a lot away. Books are everywhere and my craft tools and supplies overflow my craft room. Then there's dd & fiancee's stuff and dh's hunting and fishing gear. There's just way too much stuff here. It drives me crazy!

Didn't finish in time to ship on Saturday and am still working on my projects. Won't go into details except to say this has been one of the roughest starts to a year that I can remember. UTM and Annchen, I'll drop you pms when I have a better idea when I'll be shipping.

I totally love that tote. Don't bring it to any Craftster meet ups, kbrison...it might go "missing." Wink

Guess it's lucky then that I won't be able to make it to any meet ups this year! Remind me NOT to give you any details about the Arlington, Texas meet up in 2018. Grin
