I'm so happy!!

I haven't been good about blogging in ages, but I'm so excited right now I just have to tell you all about it - I gave myself an early Christmas present tonight - I cleaned my stamp room!!! I know I've sounded like a broken record on this blog, complaining about my messy room (which is my own doing!), and I've wanted to clean it, literally, for MONTHS, but I just haven't had the energy to face it. Do you ever have that big of a mess, that you'd rather just close the door on than face? Well that's been my stamp room. Which is sad, because it takes away my desire to stamp when my room is such a disaster. This is why there's been nothing new on here in over a month! But anyway - tonight I did it!!! It's still not perfect, I've created several different "piles" I want to sort through and organize, but it's now organized clutter rather than horrific chaos, and I can WALK to my desk to stamp rather than having to make giant steps over my piles to get there (which now that I'm HUGE has been getting more & more difficult!)! See that "stuff" in the foreground of my first photo? That's my CARPET!! Tomorrow I think I'll actually VACUUM in there!!! I haven't been able to do that in so long! In case you can't quite understand why I'm so excited - I'm going to post one of my embarrassing "before" photos again...! Awful, isn't it?? Seriously, there were just PILES of stuff as soon as you opened the door. So depressing! But now it's so NICE! Hooray!!!!!!! But I can't end on that ugly photo, so here's one more, of my nice, accessible desk! I also spent way too much time tonight winding various bits of ribbon from shares, blog candies, etc onto embroidery floss cards and organizing in a box - which makes me very happy too! I told myself I was "allowed" to stay up working on this until 2am - I pre-arranged with the hubby that *HE* has to get up with Carter in the morning so I can sleep in - but I have gone past my curfew & it's now going on 3am! Oops! Baby Girl is kicking me like mad right now, probably wondering what's gotten into me. :-)

Ok I have to do one more thing before I post & head to bed - I've been so out of touch with the blogging world lately, I completely missed that my ever so sweet blogging friend Rose Ann is now a member of the SCS Dirty Dozen!!! I'm sure you all already know this, I'm just behind the times, but I wanted to give a shout-out to her anyway! I'm so happy for you Rose Ann, you completely deserve it!!!!

Goodnight. :-)


  1. Yay! That is so great. Merry Christmas! I can't wait to see it Tuesday.

  2. Awe...thanks Libby!!! Your space looks great!!! Happy stamping!!

  3. Libby, I can totally relate to the clean stamp room thing...mine is happening this week! My plan is to get mine done while I'm on Christmas break. Sharing yours has added to my motivation...the end result is so worth it! Thanks!

  4. Don't feel bad, Libby. Not only was my room a disaster right before Christmas, but I got so busy that I missed Rose Ann's big debut, too. I felt so bad. I saw it on her blog and, of course, I'm always days behind on visiting... Anyway, your room looks fabulous now and I'm happy for you that you felt like stamping again!

  5. You are not alone! ;0) My stamp room is a pig-sty. I too have piles (and storage containters filled with piles transported into them!) I'm going to follow your shining example and clean in the new year! :0) Mel


I always enjoy your comments - thanks so much for taking the time to leave one!
