Paper Diet

This past weekend, I was so thrilled to have my creative mojo back. I feel like I've been in the slump for the longest time and I wasn't even sure if I even want to try to submit anything for the latest submission call. Anyway, as I am forcing myself to sit and actually create, slowly that excitement coming back and I ended up making 16 projects from Saturday to Monday.

Of course after that my room looks like a tornado went through it. So, yesterday I started the cleaning process. My mind can only take so much messiness before it gets irritated. ;) 

Cleaning for me is also therapeutic. Like they say clean space reflect clean or peaceful mind. Well, my mind was peaceful until I start organizing my papers. Oh word... I actually feel a bit disgusted with myself at the amount of papers that I have. Granted my stash is not anything like those you've seen in the magazine and for many crafters what I have is not a lot, but it's a lot to my standard.

So, I am determine that for the next 6 months I am on paper diet. No purchasing new paper or cardstock. And to use more of my papers and cardstocks! I tend to use only white cardstock, so that will have to change.

Okay, enough rambling. I have this woodland Santa card to share using the gnome Jerome from Paper Smooches. The cute hanging stocking are from Avocado Arts.

I love how the bright colors stand against the white. Now, I get to start working on our family Christmas cards. Yep, I am behind. As usual. :) Have a fabulous day crafty peeps!
