Muah! My Prince

No new Copics in the mail this weekend. :0( They are still in some sort facility in long will they be there? Darn USPS!

Since it was snowing, I decided to stay in and reorganize my craft area a bit. My desk and tray table were so messy and chaotic that I never felt like making anything. I decided to reclaim my desk from all the clutter and made myself a "BigShot Tower". It is really a 3 drawer Steralite cart where the BigShot fits perfectly on top and then I have all my dies in the drawers below along with some of the other tools and supplies that were cluttering up my workspace. Now I have a nice study place to use my Bigshot and a nice clear area for stamping.

I also started a journal to catalog all my clingmount rubber stamp images. I have them all put away (not in their original packaging) and it is impossible for me to remember their names when I take them out to use them. Now I just have to flip through my journal to get them names.

I made my very first paper rosette too! I love them and never had a moment to sit down and figure out how to make them. I was going to get the Tim Holtz die but then saw a tutorial on YouTube showing how to make them using the Martha Stewart Score Board so I decided to try it. My first attempt was the size in the tutorial using a 1 1/2 X 12 inch strip and it was just too big. I decided to try it at 3/4 inch X 12 and that came out the perfect size.
