Scrapping and other crafty bits

*Stands up* - I'm Charl, and I'm a card-a-holic...

Good morning, folks. This prompt has got me thinking, that maybe I have a small problemo, of the card and paper variety. You see, that pic below, isn't even the half of it. I have separate stacks for printed paper, and another pile for my card and paper kits and packs, and another for my 8x8's and another for my 8.5 x 11. And pizza boxes. And a filing cabinet. Oh dear. But!! On a brighter note - I have started getting into all of it. I read something that Anita Mundt had written once - basically saying to stop saving those papers for a rainy day, and to get them used! So since then I have recklessly (?!indeed...) torn into new paper packs and hacked away at them, throwing caution to the wind, and I have enjoyed it! I don't really (what a liar) buy paper and card anymore, because I have started using up all my (not very) old stash!!

And the other pic up there, is a card I made for my cousin, who has just had a beautiful baby girl. I am just developing my card making skills really, and by that I mean, actually coming up with my own ideas instead of 'borrowing' from other people. Not that there is anything wrong with that!! But I want to start coming up with some stuff worthy of borrowing myself, if I can!

Playgroup this morning - then my ma is coming up - I'm making soup and a chickpea, lime and coriander salad that she loves. Right, better skidaddle and sort these childer out!!

Thanks for reading guys, and I'll get back later to catch up with you all! Have a grand old day!

You sound just like me - I photographed only my "to go" pile because all of the other stacks were just too big. It's a sickness I'm sure. (Do we really want to get well?!) :-)
Great shot.
