I found this on Craftaholics Anonymous blog. This was one of the best musical performances I have seen in a long time. Please turn my music OFF.

Some of these accessories and wheels will sell out within a few days, if not today. I will update this list at the end of each day to show which items are no longer available.

You ask where have I been?...

by ktstamps, 7:31 PM
Thank you so much for those who wrote me an email wondering if I was OK and tell me I was missed! What a great feeling!
Well, here is what I have been up to! I got an early Christmas present. My stamps room is my old bedroom. I have this big closet and the room is a little tight! One day I went over to Kathy’s house and saw what she did to her room. It was fabulous. She had gone to the store called Storables and installed a craft room organizer. Well, her room is a little smaller than mine and it really made a difference. So, I decided that I wanted to do something with my room. When you are a demonstrator, you have too many stamps, to much “I need to have gadgets”, and a place big enough in your house to host a class. The difference between Kathy and me…she can organize and keep her room clean. I am not a cleaner or organizer! I think my mom forgot to pass that gene on to me! This is what I was working with! This is my stamp room! Yes…it’s a MESS! Really, it never got very clean! (I have shared too much information!) :)

As you can see, I really needed help. First I ordered. The first day I went down to get the 20% off for the craft stand and then I come back five days later for the "HOW TO" class. I got 25% off of that. It's almost like remodeling your room. It's not cheap but I really like the way it turned out! Below are the boxes and some part of the putting it all together. (OH! I measured and re-measured and I was still off by 3". That is 3" too much! I spent so much time running back and forth! I didn't think I would ever get it together.) Even the cat was in the box! :)

So then I had to put my room back together. NOW...that was the problem. So many papers, papers everywhere. OMG! I didn't know I had that many! So, I got my 3 hole punch and now they are in 3 ring binders. I do need more. This is what my room looks like now. I am so happy and I have 2 drawers left over! Still trying to figure out if this works for me!

As you can see, 2 weeks is ALL it's taken me to get my “craft heaven” room organized. I would like to give a big Shout out to Kathy for inspiring me! Santa has come early in my household! kt

Look what I got!

Look at what Michelle sent me! OMG! I received so many stamps. I thank you so much Michelle for the incredible card and the box full of stamps! Your box will be coming soon! Thank you again and check out Michelle’s blog!

Do you like my new banner? Well, long story made short. I found the picture! That is all I did! I tried working in photoshop but I am not very smart when it comes to take program. (Really I almost threw the computer out the window!) REALLY! But I already broke my laptop! REALLY! Amyway, Michelle helped me get the idea and she worked hard to give it the look I wanted. Donna did the sizing and redid the banner. I thank you a lot. I couldn't have done it with out you two! I think I will need your help in January! :)

Retirement list is here

by ktstamps, 1:57 AM
A little surprise! Will miss my solemn stillness and serene sunflower! I loved my hippo in Bundle of joy!

Anyway, take a look at the alphabetical retirement list here or the same retirement list organized by catalog page numbers here. If you're like me you'll find lots of stamps on that list that were on your wish list, so don't delay -- get them while they're still here because on January 2 they'll be gone.
