Time Flies . . .

. . . when it is the weekend! Did you ever wonder why? I did and still do! But, I do relish Sunday evenings because it is my night to do what I call "regroup" and get ready for the week. I make these mental notes about what I want to accomplish the upcoming week . . . so I can be ready for the next weekend! You might have guessed it, but my mind never stops - drives me nuts!!!

So, I had a delightful weekend. It included doing some clean up of my stamping room and I can now find all my stamp sets! You know, many of you . . . and me . . . have been looking for ways to organize stamp sets. If you know of any, if you could please post any suggestions in the Comments box in the column to the right -- the first block -- that would be great! Right now, I sort them by alphabet sets, word sets, autumn/halloween and Christmas sets. Then the rest of the sets are organized by box size. It's the box size organization that leaves to be desired! I hope to hear from you guys with some ideas for us all!!

I did get a bit of stamping done, well, okay, as I think of it, there was no stamping involved. But, I was creating using paper products and the Big Shot. My good friend, Susan Elise, came over on Saturday night and we made our bears from the new Build-A-Bear Collection. Oh my goodness, we had such fun and I now have five bears - with five different outfits! I'll be sharing them with you this week. The new Build-A-Bear Collection includes both stamp sets and Sizzix dies. I didn't think I would spend much time with these bears and didn't order any of these products when I could do a demonstrator pre-order this month. But no . . . I had to go to convention and see these cute projects . . . and went back to my hotel room that night and ordered all the dies! I'm such a good customer - my demonstrator must love me .. ha ha!!! I can't wait to share these bears with you!!!

I'm going to share another Display Board with you from Convention. This one has a Halloween theme and look at it closely (by clicking on the picture) to see all the good projects you can create for Halloween!!!! I love the ideas on this Display Board.

See, I told you that you would see some really great projects on this Display Board!!! I hope you enjoy and have a great Monday!!!! :-)

p.s. Don't forget the Holiday Mini will be on line on September 1. The mailing is delayed so you probably won't get it until after the 1st, but be sure to check online and take a peek because you'll love it!!!!!
