Cleaned up around here today and got all my minibooks into one basket in our dining room (read more on minibooks in a past AEzine issue here). I like having them out in the open and available for Simon or Chris or guests (or me) to pick up and touch and look though and give them a bit of love. I am pretty sure that basket came from Home Goods awhile back – the length works so well for all those books.
And I must admit, the holidays are on my mind. I am starting a nice little stash of holiday products and making a list of projects I want to create – many are home decoration stuff using scrapbook products. Look for most of those projects to be showcased in upcoming issues of the newsletter (coming back to life again soon).
The holiday excitement wasn't helped with the arrival of the Pottery Barn catalog today – which included lots of red stuff. I gotta get through Halloween + Thanksgiving…but the Christmas ideas are percolating and getting written down so I won't forget.
A couple of things in my stash right now include these (to make tree tags), the St. Nick line from Making Memories, and this stamp (654F). It's been fun adding things to the basket and planning ahead.
