Just sharing...

What a lovely day its been in Cape Town today... I could have done without the heat though... think it was 32 degrees celsius and very little wind.  After running some chores in the morning, I managed to skype with my dear friend Sandra this afternoon and then I made this little Shopping List magnetic booklet for the fridge which a colleague from work asked me to make for her.  I really hope she likes it.

But firstly, let me share some of my new STASH which arrived in the post today with you all.  I've just added a few items to the pile, which I bought from The Scrapbook shop in Bellville AGAIN.... uhhh...wasn't I there last week ???  But you see, I do have a good excuse. When my paper pads from overseas arrived, I then found that I didn't have plain cardstock to match them, so of course I had to get some.. .hmmmm... somehow the flowers, ribbon and nesties landed up in my basket too...  Does that every happen to you ? In your mind you know you're just going to buy paper and before you know it, the basket is brimming over with goodies and your bank balance has taken a bit of a dive!!!

I then sat cataloguing my new Magnolia's.  As explained in a post way back, this is how I do it.  I stamp my new images onto a square card and slip it into a CD case.  I then write down the name of the Tilda and where I purchased it from next to the image, so that I don't have to scratch my head trying to remember their names or where I purchased them from, when typing out my posts.  The CD case gets a number too.  I then stamp them into a book and the number of the CD box is placed next to the Tilda so when I want to use her, all I have to do is sift through my box of CD's and pick out the number I want. Shew, what a mouthful, hope it makes sense...LOL!  I do this for all my stamps.

OK, now here's my little magnetic Shopping List booklet for my colleague at work...  Here it is on my fridge door (had to test that it works).

I hope I haven't bored you with this post.   Don't forget to pop around tomorrow to see what I've created for the Simply Magnolia fortnightly challenge.  I'd love to hear what you think of it.

It's gorgeous Sharon, I'm sure she will love it. I like the way you organize your stamps, I have to find a way to organize these types, I don't have a lot but need something for the ones I do have. I just created more tonight, I bought a set of stamps about maybe 2 yrs ago now and haven't even inked them because they came with wood blocks but not attached to them. I wanted to put them on the EZ Mount stuff and have had it for quite some time, I guess I just never thought about them. Saw them tonight so I did them. :)
Wow 8.99 for a Magnolia, I would have a hoard of them at the price :) they are 14.99 or more here. that's a fabulous amount of stuff you got, absolutely gorgeous pile of scrapping goodness :) I want to come visit and play :)
If you get a chance hun, can you pop over to my blog, I'm in a hop this wkend and the banners are for a great cause. Tx ttys love ya big hugs ;) I'm off to bed, have a great day :)
