Choo Choo

Here is a card that I made for my brother-in-law Tom's birthday that is coming up in early August. The image is retired SU, from the "All Aboard" set. The cardstock is SU and the patterned paper is leftover from a graduation stack that I bought a few months ago.

So, my brother is on vacation this week and I have taken this time to be a crafting fool. Right now I am crocheting two afghans. Two because one is a cream color and wide enough for a queen size bed, the other is navy blue with some white and orange (Chicago Bears football colors). The "Bears" one is just a lap throw. I am working on them both because sometimes the cream color one just get so boring and I need a change of color. Right now the cream color one is about mid thigh on me from the floor, so I have quite a bit to go. The navy one is only about to my knee. I hope to have both of them done for the craft fairs that I have coming up this fall.

I am also cataloging my stamp sets by stamping each set's images on a piece of printer paper and writing down the name. I then will put these images in a binder and number the pages. The number on the page will correspond to the number on the set and I will be able to easily find the images that I want to use. I often get ideas in my head of a certain image and phrase but waste so much of my precious crafting time trying to find the supplies. I am hoping that my thoughts for an organizational answer will work.

That is a wonderful idea! I often wondered how everyone kept track of stamps in cd cases, plus they fall out! I am working on filing down the little spindle holder thingy in movie cd cases as they would accommodate larger stamps or sets! Love your flower photos, too!
