Beate's Weekend Challenge

I got back from school last night and Matt was at a concert and wasn't due home til about 1:30am. I decided I would stay up and wait for him to get home. I got to work on Beate's weekend challenge and finished right as he got home. I got out my much neglected designer paper that hasn't seen the light of day since Winter, at least. Aren't we stamping addicts fickle?

We HAVE to have certain products for about 2-3 months until the next thing come along. Then the "old" things get pushed to the back of the shelves to make room for the newest fad. Well this designer paper is a good example of perfectly good and acutally beautiful paper that is not longer the "in" thing. That is another reason I like challenges. Sometimes you need just the right thing and sometimes these older supplies are just the right thing. My problem is that I am clutter phobic so I often get rid of things when they are still perfectly good. Never fails the minute I get rid of them I find myself wishing I still had it around.

Well, it is a totally beautiful day in Minnesota today! I wanted to spend some time stamping, but I don't know if I dare stay inside on a day like today as these days are certainly numbered at this point in our neck of the woods. The leaves are turning which, to me, is about the most beatiful thing in the world, but at the same time it feels so fleeting as Winter looms around the corner.
