Piles and piles

This card is one that I have kept for 6 or more years. It reminds me that simple is nice too and things don't always have to be over-embellished to be nice. Don't get me wrong, I love my layers and bling but I also love the simplicity of this card that I have yet to achieve.

I didn't stamp yesterday and I don't see it on today's agenda. Tomorrow, however, I will be getting my box from Mr. Brown and will be playing and checking out the new catalog.

What I have been doing is going through my stamps. Usually when the new catalog comes out, I go through them and decide what I want to keep and give the rest away. This year it is double the work because we were in the middle of a cross-country move when the new catalog came out last year. I currently have over 100 sets that I'm not keeping and I still have 3 more shelves to unload and sort through from my "office". I discovered that my oldest set dates back to 1997. It was a Christmas set that I bought in 1999 and then it was retired in 2000.

Unmounted sets I'm getting rid of.

Partially mounted or mounted that I'm getting rid of.

What I'm keeping so far. I still have 3 more shelves of stamps to go through.

I'm going to sort through the table sets again before putting them away. I'm sure I will come across more that I can part with. I'm trying to be reasonable. In looking at the picture I see an unmounted set that I'm wondering why I wanted to keep it.

Tomorrow I'm going to post a few digital pages of the kids. I'm still working on my book at Shutterfly and hoping to finish it over the weekend so I can have it printed. So much to do on it still. Friday I'll be back with some stamping.
