Come home soon and teach the boy how to drive the stick shift before I die of laughter. No way am I going to do this with our daughter. There are too many stop lights where we live...
Started organizing the basement. It doesn't seem right to call this a basement. Really it is the bottom level of our townhouse. Fully finished. With a walkout in the bar. Haven't parted with much on the paper crafting side of things. You know I'm plotting to keep it all. I might need it! Someday. Argh.
All the rubber stamps fit into 9 drawers of two Anchor floss cabinets. That leaves me with three drawers for oversized paper? or whatever. Felt good to toss those dozen or so acrylic picture frames that I had my stamps store in. I probably should have kept one for transportation to and from the cabinet to a work area. I can always buy another one as the garbage has already been picked up this morning.
I think I will continue to put most of this away for evaluation on another day. I need to go through and find out which ink pads are dried out, which pens no longer work, what stickers I have that I absolutely don't need, all those stencils, etc. I've already gifted a teacher with nearly my entire collection of foam rubber stamps. I kept one alphabet.
I can probably make the most room by removing old magazines. My goal is to leave nothing stacked on the floor. Not sure if that is attainable. But I feel like I'm making headway. It's the two boxes of stuff that came from the desk that are challenging me now. All those odds and ends. Do I really need multi-colored staples and paper clips? Microbeads? What fun!
