My Favorite F Word and My Closet

F Word!!!  Yes, you read that right!!  And my closet... oh my!  Today is Wednesday and I took a picture of my closet that is absolutely terrifying!  I thought it'd be "perfect" to use as a bad example and maybe give me incentive to clean it up.  This picture is in honor of Julia's Stamping Ground weekly blog hop that I have not been participating in much lately.  After reading my post I HIGHLY recommend you click on the link at the bottom of this post and take a look at other crafters' desks for some great projects, organizing tips, and more!  But here's my closet just to the right of my desk....


Isn't this just frightful!!!  I REALLY need to organize!  But every time I look at it I shudder and look away!  And my desk isn't much better. LOL! I can easily find something else to do... like get some samples made for my May classes or cards ready to sell, or just play!  And here's what I've been playing with lately...


This card is made using stamps (Fabulous You) from Red Rubber Designs.  I used some paper from
RRD called Miss Moxie... I love the bright colors.  And inside you'll find my F word....


Did I have you worried?  But I bet you were wondering just where I was going! And this card design is one of the many on the Move It CD by Technique Junkies!!!


I did add some itty bitty rhinestones to the earrings and to the ring on her finger. I colored with Copics and, I know, I really need to get some practice time in! Now, please head over to the Stamping Ground after leaving me a comment (which are moderated) and view some more work areas!  Lately that the vast majority of pornographic/sexual comments have diminished (much to my relief!) so no word verification at this time for those of you who comment.

I just noticed that I have a lot of links on this post.  But I do want you to be able to check out the items I'm playing with when I can.  Hopefully I have this set up so that a new window opens when you click on a link.

Hi there yes spam can be annoying.. I have been on an organising frenzy after getting my new desk.. I have been collecting all sorts of things since I started art Journaling and I am finding it takes up so much room.. Its all those things you think you might just need that take up all the space.. Sorting takes time and actually doing those projects you have been putting off that's the key I am finding.

f-f-f-flippin' fabulous!! The card, not the cupboard. Love lime green as well. The cupboard, well, just keep the door closed.
Thanks for visiting me earlier - Hugs, Neet xx 5

Carol, you missed the most important F word - FUN! That's why most of us get into stamping to begin with. On another note, your closet looks mild compared to what I'm facing - compressing an entire room into one little corner. I'm trying to decide what I'm going to offer at garage sale - and don't really want to get rid of any of it!! Anyhow, love the card and thoroughly enjoy your blog!!

Your card is fantastic! And your closet, well, It has been suggested to me when I get over whelmed, just spend 10 minutes, or 20, at a time, then close the door, and start again another time. When I do things in a small amount of time, it seems a little more manageable. I am not what one would call a natural organizer as you can see on my desk this week, but I do try, really, I do, Hugs, Cathryn #141

Dont be frightened this is your cupboards way of saying that it needs containers and shelves, even plastic shelves and drawers and then I am sure the cupboard will be happy. Hey you dont need an excuse to shop the cupboard is giving you one, LOL

Beautiful card, great cheery colours.

Happy Belated WOYWW
