"Create" Banner on Etsy

I recently decided to take on a challenge.  Create something with your creative stash without buying anything new.  Here is a banner I created using some older paper I had in my stash.  It features doublesided cardestock from Crate Paper, Bazzill bling cardstock, white vinyl letters, and black rub-ons.  It is mounted to heavy chipboard and embellished with ribbon, lace, streamer paper and doilies.  I was so happy with the way it turned out, I listed it on my Etsy Store, LifeEmbellishedInc. Clickhereto see this and other great items. Hopefully, it will make a great Christmas gift for someone :)

Yard sale!

Well it's that time of year again. My local scrapbook store is having thier bi-annual yard sale. ETC at Lindsey & University in Mesa, AZ has two of these sales each year.  One in the spring and one in the fall.  It is so much fun to go!  You can get some great finds at fantastic deals :)  Although I have participated the last 3 or 4 times, I still have such a hard time motivating myself to go through my craft room and decide what to keep & what to sell. 
 I have a confession...I am a scrapbook collector. When I find a collection I like, I feel the need to buy everything in the set (paper, stamps, bling, borders, chipboard, stickers, embellishments...EVERYTHING!).  I always have great intentions of saving it for that "special" project and then never use it.  It sits in my room, collecting dust and then I find something newer, something better.  My decision making process is complicated by the little voice in the back of my head saying "don't get rid of that...it's still cute...you might find a good project to use that for."
I put it off because it is always such a HUGE undertaking. The only good thing is that each time I do this, my room seems a little lighter...a lot take brighter... & a whole lot more inviting!  I have also come up with some great storage options which I will share later.
Wish me luck...it's time to go in!
