Hey everyone!! Has September been rushing past for you, too??
So much going on, a lot of you have kids going back to school or if you are college age YOU are going back to school. There have been weather issues it seems in every corner of the globe with tons of hurricanes in the US causing massive destruction, 8.1 earthquakes in Mexico, and other catastrophic news all over the place.
The point is, if you tell me you haven't had a lot of time for crafting, I could believe it! As for me, I've done a bit here and there but I'm in Southern California and outside of a minor heat wave, our weather has been no problem. Sure, we had some power outages during the heat wave due to overuse of the system...but that happens every time it stays over 100 degrees for a time. People will try to keep their homes under 72 degrees and we can't all get there.
Keeping all the families in prayer who are dealing with any of the weather disasters right now; there seem to be so many with Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma (hitting Miami any second but already rammed parts of the caribbean!), and Hurricane Jose coming up the turnpike. I know we have a trip scheduled for mid-October that entails flying across the US so I am wondering if those hurricanes will have an effect on us in our flight pattern as well as my son who is traveling even sooner (next week) to Kentucky.
So far, all is well.
I've been doing some extra creating with some new stamp sets from our Holiday catalog. There are so many new designs to try out and even lots of new embellishments! Its always exciting when we get new stuff but you can't beat something TOTALLY new! Check out this pictures of my recent "Simple & Stunning" class and some upcoming classes:
In other news, I recently got another shelf to help myself get more organized with my stamps and supplies. In the past I've tried rolling metal carts with drawers, rolling cards with bins, lazy Susans, etc...but I think I finally have a handle on my organization. For me, if I spend a LOT of time just looking for stamp sets and ink pads that is BAD. I consider that is all time I could be creating and designing and just having fun with my stamps!!! Here are a few shots of the new system:
Ok that's it for now. Have a wonderful Saturday wherever you are and please be safe. Till next time...
