I've already embellished the cover with a button tied on with baker's twine from The Twinery, a heart die cut and a chipboard element from My Mind's Eye. And a few of my favorite journaling markers, too!
Knowing that I was never going to use all the letter sticker sets I had shoved in a drawer, I set about to corral and organize them. Because they were such a mess, I kinda sorta didn't even want to open the drawer because I knew that it would take a long time to even find what I was looking for.
Trust me, this looks so much better than the scary before photo.
I already had the bins, so the job went rather quickly. I also used glassine bags from the shop to corral some of the smaller sticker sheets. And if you are a crafter, they also work really well for acrylic stamp storage, too.
Funny how a little cleaning out also clears my mind as well. It was like a breath of fresh air blew through my Studio and invigorated me to work a crafty project for me. More on that in a later post.
Today, I'm a featured sponsor on the private #30lists blog with today's 30 Days of Lists topic, but I wanted to share here as well because everyone loves a good list, right?
Here we go...
Day 26 | Ways to Meet New People
I don't get out as often as I used to, since I now work from home creating charming art prints and awesomely fun journals and mini books. And, well, I have become quite fond of spending my days working in my Studio and don't need people and conversation as much as I used to, or maybe I've just become more used to the quiet.
I used one of my favorite stamps and then hand trimmed it to make it look like it was a punched die cut, which is one of my favorite little tricks. It's just a $1 bin stamp that had a saying I didn't need, so I asked Gordon to use his Dremel to rub off the saying and voila, custom stamp just for me!
Sometimes it's fun to make lists interactive, so I just tucked my tags inside a small glassine envelope.
And of my gosh, these stickers have to be at least 9 years old, but I still have them and I still use them. It's always a game to find a way to make a list title work with the orphaned stickers I have left in my collection, but that's part of the fun.
If you like lists, join me in the March 30 Days of Lists class. I'm a sponsor and would just love to have you listing along with us. You can create your own journal, buy a journal from my shop, or just post your lists on Facebook or Instagram. There are no rules, just fun!
