Learn Something New Day 2

This is my day 2 for Shimelle's Learn Something New class:

I moved to Arizona only a couple months ago, and this is certainly a small town (although larger than where I grew up). I can easily find things to do 90 minutes from where I live, but it hit me yesterday when trying to reserve a conference facility for work, that there is alot more going on here than I think about. I just need to seek out events in the immediate area, rather than thinking about what is out of reach.

I'm also enrolled in a 'Use your Stash' class over at Big Picture Scrapbooking. Well - I'm combining the two, and I'm determined to use my stash on this 30 day project. The brads I've used were just two beautiful to use, so I kept saving them. Nope - time to use them up. The alphabet sets I've had - I haven't touched those in a long time - use em up. Now I need to tackle that pile of chipboard - look for some of that sometime this weekend.

The lesson (or rather reminder) that I didn't put on here - there are still people out there that separate men from women in the workplace (my pet peeve that I don't think I've seen in awhile).

Happy Friday to all - the weekend is only hours away!!!


  1. Good luck on busting your stash...and learning more about where you live. Its all about observation isn't it. I'm trying to use up all my leftovers on this septembers project.

  2. Well done on using your precious stash, it will make room for you to buy more lol

  3. Your page looks terrific. I like how you are using your stash....that is exactly what I am trying to do also. I hope that class at BPS is going to be offered again because I would love to take it!


Welcome to my site!!

I recently moved to Arizona a couple months ago, and am very happily settling into a new career. I was introduced to stamping over 10 years ago. I've always been into crafts, and picked back up with stamping a couple years ago. I love that I finally have the time to dedicate to my crafts, and that I'm able to share my ideas with everyone. I've seen myself grow in my creativity over the past couple years, and to those who say that they are not creative - don't believe it. Anyone can do this, and creativity doesn't happen overnight, it evolves as you learn more and more about the art of stamping. My husband is incredibly supportive as I put more time into my stamp designs and my scrapbooking.
