Handicrafts by Kate Perry and other ramblings

Wednesday, July 4, 2012


Just a quick peek at my work desk this week folks. I had my usual morning at my sewing group and when I got in I realised that I needed to make an insert for a birthday card to hand-deliver at a party this evening. This required a stamp I bought around four months ago, but have not so far managed to file. So I went to my 'tidy-up' tray and pulled out all the new(ish) stamps that still need to be filed, and here they are!

I'm not proud of it. In fact it is quite shameful. Some of these were bought during my UK visit in May and several even earlier than that. There are also a few relatively recent purchases. They include some from SU, quite a few from Chocolate Baroque, several magazine giveaways, and one of the new Michael Powell stamps. I did have a session recently when I transferred them onto EZmount, so now I have to decide which folder they belong in and GET THEM PUT AWAY! 

As it is now time to get ready for the aforementioned party, most of them will return to the tidy tray tonight, but it is my resolution for the week, to get them all filed by the weekend. Don't hold your breath!
Do hop over to Julia's blog to see what everyone else has out to play with today, and I will join you in the morning to visit my friends and leave some comments.

Happy WOYWW. Fab stamps - and you will have a lot of fun going through them and putting them away. I have got that Michael Powell one as well (free gifts with my Craft Stamper subscription) and haven't had a chance to play yet. Ali x #71

Snap Kate, I also have that Michael Powell stamp :) But you have a load of unused ones there for sure, lucky you.

Good luck with the putting away, a little bit at a time is my motto.

WOW - that sure is a lot to tidy up! Have fun! xxx

That is quite a haul you've amassed! Putting them away certainly isn't the fun part of retail therapy so you can't be blamed for putting it off, now can you? ;) This is my first time to your blog so I'll have to paw around and see some of your completed projects...with all those stamps I'm sure I'll find some amazing things! :)
