Carol posted so many links to great ideas for organizing our stitching space.

Great idea!

I did a little organizing but it didn't get far. I bought a new six-drawer cart and unloaded a binful of rubber stamps into it. And I have an organizer I found at Michaels mean to hold clear stamps into which I've placed my Cuttlebug folders: I need to buy more of these... (but not from this site --- the shipping is NASTY!):

They would be perfect for brass stencils too!

Mainly it was so I could get to my cutting table which is covered with STUFF!

Half of it is... the other half is still piled high. Trouble is DH uses it too when he is mounting photos and landscape plans, and he leaves his tools on it. ARGH!

P.S. I was feeling guilty so I spent 30 minutes tonight sorting the stuff on my cutting table and clearing it. Put things back where they belonged (things like Christmas papers and cards, Christmas gifts and ornaments, greeting cards in progress, etc. Even threw some things away! Now it is covered with 12 piles of sorted-by-numbers DMC floss that needs to be filed and when I'm doing that, I will pull the floss for the two Ink Circles Kits I have decided to kit out). Then there are the non-DMC flosses (a lot easier as there is less of it and it goes into plastic storage boxes instead of all those floss bags!) and the left-over kit flosses to sort and I will be able to cut on my table again! YAY!

Oh, and I put away my Valentine ornaments. Time to pull out St. Patrick's Day ornaments (too early yet for Easter, right?) and decorate my craft room tree!

Have a good visit with your Mom!

And don't let those neat piles sit too long. I've done that ... for 7 years! LOL
