I have spent part of the afternoon going through things in my craft room. I swear I have enough paper to cover all of the southern states! I keep trying to convince myself that I do not have to buy paper in every store I walk into. Last week I went to my LSS and she had new Basic Grey paper out and I had to have a sheet or two. Ok, maybe 6 or 7 but who's counting? I found most of my Christmas themed paper today. Just a little late, but, hey I will be ready for next year. I am starting to work on some Valentine's Day projects and didn't think I had any paper for that, but I found about 60 sheets. Organization is our household goal for the year and since we will be moving my crafting area soon, I am trying to sort my things and pass along the things I no longer use. Thanks for stopping by tonight!

Another goal I have for myself this year is to make sure that the cards I make actually make it to their intended recipient and that they arrive on or before the event I have made the card for. Not a week after! I am great about remembering birthdays, anniversaries and other important days. I am not good about putting said cards in an envelope, attaching a stamp and then making sure they get mailed. My first test of the new year is my grandparents anniversary which is on Wednesday. The card is made and ready to drop in the mail in the morning. They are celebrating what I believe is their sixty fourth wedding anniversary, isn't that just amazing? I decided to make this card more in my Grandmother's taste so it is fairly simple and has flowers on it. A lot of my childhood memories of spending time with both of them at their house revolved around the garden and the flower beds. The papers I chose are from DCWV and the stamps are from an old Provo Craft set that I have had for a long time. The paper flowers are from Joilee's and they originally had a silver center but I wanted them to be pink so I took my pink Spica pen and changed them.
