I’m really short on time right now, so very little time to stamp, which is frustrating, though I did go to a demo (by Mum at the Craft Group she set up before going off to New Zealand) on Tuesday afternoon and got to make a card. Lovely design but I messed it up – yip! Spent too much time chatting with old friends from church and lovely stamping friends.

However, I would perhaps have stamped something quickly, as I need to do my Musical Moments ATCs and a few other things BUT my stamp room is really in a mess. A friend of mine (who shall remain nameless, I think – or not , Neet) sent me some photos of what she thinks is her messy stamp room, so I reciprocated. Oops, I bet she has a shock when she gets them. So, I thought I’d give you the pleasure of seeing my creative mess – and I mean MESS. It was tidy a month or so ago but then I had a bit of a creative frenzy and was selecting stamps for a couple of projects and left all the stuff around due to lack of time – or a book being more interesting, lol. Then I started on several resist techniques, all of which are half done and waiting either for colour or to be made into cards. Meantime, I had a quick tidy of what was on the chair (nothing is sacred) and emptied a couple of my trusty baskets and plonked it all onto the desk, leaving myself a few inches to work in. Don’t think there’s even that, now… Check it out for yourself. Meantime, I got new stamps and HAD to try them out quickly, so I made even more mess and didn’t put them away cos they don’t have a ‘home’ yet. (Hangs head in shame…) Just hope it makes you feel better.

My younger son is 32 today, so Happy Birthday, Phil! I've been trying not to wake him too early because he's in Florida.

I like to hang on to the thought that a messy desk is the sign of a creative mind!!! LOL

Hey! Looks familiar!! My corner looks just like that. And the floor is a mess as well.....But I really enjoy my messy room!!

Cath, mine is just the same. It sort of puts you off going in, doesn't it? lol

Neet said...

Happy Birthday to Phil - to you - well what can I say except yours is better than mine (for being a mess). Should I keep away from Vicky Stampers having said that?

I wouldn't mind all that mess - I have never seen so many stamps and ink pads - it would be my idea of heaven.

Off to find that Paper Artsy stamp with French things on - I need them for a project!
