I have been a "sort them by company" person for years. But for some stamps, I am sorting them by theme where possible. I have a travel section, a journal section (writing spaces mostly), alphabets, and now, sea and space with plans for another food and drink after I get another order in the correct box size lol. Why spend money on organization when I can spend it on crafty things : D.

Putting a new to me stamp set on duralar and attaching the labels. This is Papertrey Ink's birdwatching. To the left is a little shrinky dink I made with Lil Inker Designs Super Coffee. Also managing to get in some spinning everyday, mostly embroidery thread aka tiinnnnnnny art yarn lol. We are having some rain so it is easier to spin wool not that the temperature has dropped.

Betwixt projects = clear space in the middle. Still having fun with the Lil Inker Super Coffee set. A side view of Altenew's Faceted 3D bowl, stamp sets to put away, Papertrey Ink's Favor It: Box 5.

The one benefit of hot weather (it was 97F in the shade on Monday), is that it is wonderful for spinning flax wet. The flax dries quickly, and it's warm enough that I don't mind if I spill water in my lap lol. For the record, this is a spindle I made with a wooden toy wheel, a dowel, an eye hook twisted open and some paint. The flax is bleached flax top (combed). One day I will buy a flax strick and spin off a distaff.

New favorite stamp set, Super Coffee by Lil Inker. I did this right after opening the package lol. Much more to come : D. I had a kidney stone a few years ago, and had to cut back my tea drinking severely. Knock wood, coffee is still a-okay!

This is the state of my desk today. On the left are the things for my Super Coffee project(s). On the right a card of a different sort I want to make. Looks like a craft off is about to ensue lol.

WOYWW the real 472 lol

The last of the stamp sets to be filed away alphabetically. The question is to fill the last bin or use a new box. I have started using boxes to store stamps because why spend money on storage???? Found out I am missing one set, but I am doing pretty well about not freaking out, so there is that. I have OCD, not the tidy sort obviously, but the "I need to know where that thing is" sort. Better clutter that put away incorrectly I always say lol.

I found out from our fearless leader Julia that this week is actually week 472, so I follow her example : D. Head over to her Stamping Ground for a gander at this weeks selection of crafty peeks. The goose you'll have to find on your own : D.

Papertrey Ink had a big sale, so I bought some things lol. I love making little boxes and the two in the back are my two newest dies for such a thing. The triangle isy Favor It Box 5 and the star is Favor It Box: Stars. The tag cuts are from the For You set.

But I'm just getting over a vicious bug with a large topping of allergies, so it was a few weeks of doing absolutely zero crafting. So now I'm at the well, there goes my (x) day projects. So it's either start over again or pick up where I left off. Probably the latter.

I know I've said it before, but really I am so in love with the Distress Oxide inks because I can stamp away on colored cardstock but fast drying (no heat setting needed) and so easy to clean up especially compared to other pigment inks. And that banner die just makes me swoon with happiness. Okay maybe I need to get out more lol.

Doing a little stamping as one does lol. This is my long pined for, now on clearance Papertrey Ink World Map stamp started after finishing up a tough "de-glittering" of a second hand stamp set. Embossing powder is nothing compared to fine glitter! Still plugging away at the 100 day scrapbook project, though some days it's just hunting for the stuff lol. Still, I'm counting it : D.

I finished my Harry Potter 7 part 2 blog post finally. No photos, and all handmade embellishments and the hard part was condensing allllll the words lol.

Check out the little doe patronus though : D.

Head over to Julia's Stamping Ground for more crafty peeks! Next week is the 9th anniversary. Time flies so quickly as I get older!
