One Of Those Days...

Ever have one of those days where you get a 'bee in your bonnet' to work on something........................................then you can't find that something?! Today was one of those days.

I headed upstairs this morning with the thought of working on an image I'd set aside over a month ago. Well, I set it so FAR ASIDE I can't find it! I found the sentiment that goes with it....sheesh! So in digging through things, looking for the image, I discovered my folder with 3 of Asela's sets was missing! *gasp*

I'd used them a week ago.....where could they be!!!

Hours and 2 small trash bags later, my work area was clean, my stamps organized, paper put away, and several other "when I get around to it" things done............but still no stamps!

So, whilst my space was clean, I thought I'd share some pics of part of my nest.

As you can see, all the important stuff is within easy reach. Each folder has 2 or more sets in it and the dvd cases are filled and waiting to be transferred to folders (more of the 'round2it').
It's a 6' table with shelves and the spinning 3 tier rack at the end. Above the ribbon is a shelf full of other junque. Behind me is all my paper and 2 more bins of rubbah.
I have a photo area, 3 sets of large shelves and 2 smaller ones full! I use a table made for a knitting machine that my Cuttlebug and Wizard sit on.
Oh yeah, and the sewing desk is in there too! Sounds huge doesn't it!! LOL, it's not, trust me!! It's a bedroom/turned sewing room/turned stamp room about 10x11.

Of course I had to take a picture of the important feature!

And this laminated card...a dear friend that passed away suddenly 3 yrs ago had this in her craft room. When I helped go through her things, I found this card. I keep it where I can see it (not always in this place *wink*, that was just for the photo) reflect on what it says and think of Betty.

In case you can't read it, this is what it says...

Reach Out And Touch Someone
I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.

I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone.

I've learned that I still have a lot to learn.
I've learned people will forget what you said,
people will forget what you did,
they will never forget how you made them feel.

After taking a break...picking another bowlful of raspberries, and feeding the llamas I remembered where I'd put Asela's sets...! There is still a lone image hiding somewhere in that room!! You'll probably hear me shouting when I find it!

thanks for stopping by!
