I’m a MESS!


I told you…I’m a MESS! I started to take a picture of my craft space, but since a lot of it is packed up for a class that I had last night, it wouldn’t be fair. You wouldn’t have a full appreciation for the stuff I am stepping over to get into my seat.  This is a little journal that I made for my purse to keep me on track in my paper crafting. I needed a little book for color swatches, snipets of ribbon and patterned paper, sketches, inspiring magazine pictures, etc.

The stamps are from Lesley Langdon’s Rummage Bin Collection at Cornish Heritage Farms. This set is called Ledger Me. The first time I saw this set, I laughed at the coffee ring. That’s so me! I kept the fluff to a minimum because it does have to stand up to the MESS of my purse or book bag. The buttons are firmly attached with a glue dot and actually sewn through the chipboard cover on the journal. They aren’t going anywhere.


One of the reasons I am a MESS is my switch to new inks recently. For the most part, I’ve gone Ranger. This is a color swatch peek at the Adirondack line. So, my crafting space is a big ole pile of stamps and accessories that will need to find new homes soon. See, I like being married, and I’m not sure how much longer my sweet husband will stand for hurdling over ink pads, markers and such to get to the computer. Sometimes, shared space is not a good thing.

  3. You are SO not a mess-this is so stinkin cute!!!

  4. You are a girl after my own heart! My stamping name should be something like “Twister sister” or something to that effect. I would take a picture of my craft room, but that would be too embarrassing. PLUS, I don’t know if I could find room to stand since my floor and desks are all covered with winter and valentine stuff! UGH!

  5. LOL!! I hear you on the “hurdling over ink pads” to get to the computer. Between my jewelry design business and paper craft hobby, I’m lucky he puts up with it. He knows it makes me happy. He even likes to watch the artistic process at times. Thank goodness we have our own computers! 😉 Great idea on that journal!

  6. OMgosh…..I love your book, and how you’ve decorated it!! Awesome!!
