Candy Time is coming!

 Are you ready for some goodies?  I must confess that I am way less organized this year than I have been in years past. As I am sure many of you following the blog may know I have been looking for work, yes, the dreaded W word!  Work outside of crafting to pay for the darn insurance bills.  Crazy how now that I have my health back my insurance is 9000 a year, huh?

But, I am NOT complaining, believe me, I would rather be this healthy paying for insurance than sick as I was going to the doctors all the time.  This celebration is about HEALTH and Happiness and of course mainly about CRAFTS!!!  WOO HOO!!
Here's a cutie stamp from Sweet Pea stamps
so I don't have any organized photos, but I thought y'all would either be delighted or horrified to see the state of "prize table" which has now overflowed to an area next to my desk as well as the floor below it, lol!!

This is the 6x3" table (like a regular sized lunch table at the schools) covered in stuff, as you can see, the stacks got a little out of hand, I need to go back through everthing and organize it.

This whole tube is full of rubber stamps and stamp sets, mostly sets as I have a separate smaller tub that contains rubber only stamps

One box of embossing folders and die cutters

Some die cutters that were off sitting on a separate table

When I get more time I will post more photos and get around to organizing a little better!!

    All I can say about the 'stash' is holy moly batgirl! You need an assistant this year! If I lived a bit closer I would offer to help, but alas, central Kansas is just too far away. I would have so much fun helping you to sift, sort and organize all that!

    I'm sorry the insurance is so high, I wish you the best in your job hunt, and happy anniversary! I will be at the celebration with bells on!
