Don't worry be Happy

I always struggle to throw scraps of craft materials away.  I think there's something in me that says - if I just hang on to this... I'll find a use for it.  It makes retirement lists a bit of a challenge for me as I often have to let go of things I love, or make the hard call to keep them. This year when I cleaned out my craft room at retirement time I was ruthless.... well almost.  I gave away my retiring in colour ink pads and card stock to a craft room where people will use it as they learn.  I put all my retired stamps and punches on ebay.  And I kept the accessories - because who wants to really part with metal, buttons, and ribbon.  See I was ruthless... kind of.  This card is one card made almost entirely of retired product - well at least the stamps and punches.  It makes me happy to know that they've already found new homes - where someone will love them and use them frequently.

The thing about retirement sales & letting things go, is that it creates more room for new things.   While the retirement sales are over, you can still grab a bargain at the clearance rack (below). Tonight I'm planning on having a play with new stamps, new colours, and maybe new ideas.  Can't wait to share the outcomes with you next week on the blog.  Till then....

Happy crafting!
