Busy! Busy! Busy!

Well, I've been busy but not getting any crafting done. Monday I spent all my crafty time sorting and reorganizing my Stampin' Up new colors! I can't believe they got rid of More Mustard for Crushed Curry! Now I've got a big ole pile of retired colors! I haven't done much I guess since the last change (which doesn't seem that long ago to me) and still have cardstock from then. Boo! Shame on me! Then yesterday my husband had to go in to work late which meant he was home all day and for some reason I get nothing done when he's around. I guess that's sort of a good thing, but still can be frustrating. Then he was gone all evening and I had to run kids everywhere.

Also, I've been very bad and on a bit of a spending spree lately! Ooooo! Bad! I had to put in a Stampin Up order and get all the new colors and I had to put in a CTMH order before the new catalog retired, afraid I'd miss something. Then I bought some Copics! Yippee! And next month I will HAVE to order more CTMH and get the new Cricut Cartridge Artbooking! It looks like another good one!

I don't have a winner to announce this week since we are doing a monthly giveaway that I still need to post a picture of. It is a fun bundle of Christmas in July fn crafty stuff! However, I do have a just because giveaway to tell you about!

A have a Close to My Heart Stamp of the Month - June to giveaway! Donated by Carrie! You can visit her store HERE! Thanks Carrie!

  1. Wonderful flower stamp giveaway.
    "Sunshine HoneyBee"

  2. How fun ( the shopping spree ) ! I am the same way sometimes I need to buy stuff because I worry that I will need it later for a project and they will no longer have it !!


  3. Oh my gosh what a fun surprise!! That looks like a gorgeous stamp set. Thanks so much for the chance to win it.
    I totally know what you mean by spending... I bought some Copics and a few other goodies yesterday, too. Well I did need some more colors... And I used coupons... lol.

  4. Thank you for the give-a-way - I know what you mean when hubby is around - seems like one gets nothing completed = enjoy your day and have a crafty week!


  5. My day off was Tuesday and Husband's was Monday. His schedule got bumped and his day off was Tuesday. I wasn't getting ANYTHING done So I had to bump my day off to Thursday! (SHHH I told him it was a work thing LOL!)
    Fun giveaway! Already a follower! Carri~Abusybee

  6. Thanks so much for sharing with us through your blog! And thanks for the chance to win some great goodies, too!

  7. Just wait ladies. My hubby retired last September...he's always here!
    Thanks for the giveaway. I could use a lift.

  8. Sounds just like me lately!! Not that familiar with CTMH products, though. For retired husbands, give them outdoor projects to work on as that's what's worked for me the last 8 years...a 1940 Pontiac and a 1996 RV (also plan some trips!)

  9. I always hate when life gets in the way of crafting . But it does make me so much more happy to be sitting in ym craft area doing something relaxing. Thanks for the chance at the wonderful set. Carrie is very generous! Thanks Carrie!

  10. Your life sounds like mine. No time to scrapbook or make cards. But, I really like CTMH stamps. Thanks for the chance to win one of their stamp sets.

  11. The stamp set is very pretty! Fun design! I don't get anything done when my DH is home either. Don't know why, he gives me plenty of room to do things...I just don't get anything done!

    Sounds like a lot of fun to get all the new colors from SU!!!!

  12. Sounds like you are busy! Beautiful stamp set, thank you for the chance to win it!

  13. Oh Would love Junes stamps!!!

  14. Whew, your schedule is making me tired and I'm not even having to do anything but read about it! LOL! I have to say that although I love that Stampin Up comes out with new colors and retires old ones every so often, I find myself missing the old ones that I got used to. So then I have to buy the new ones AND keep the old ones! Yup, I have a lot of stamp pads...! Thanks so much for the great giveaway..that stamp set is gorgeous!

  15. What a busy month you're having with all the new releases fron Stampin Up and CTMH! I do understand going on a spending spree (something we all need to watch!). Thanks for the chance to win this beautiful stamp set!

  16. I smiled to myself when I read your blog post. I spend so much time organizing my stuff and buying new stuff I never have time to make anything! :)

  17. Oh, so many supplies and no time to craft. Isn't that just the most frustrating thing? Of course, just going through my new goodies is almost as fun as crafting...but I try to limit myself, ha! Hope you get some time to play with your new goodies soon! Thanks for the wonderful giveaway...those stamps are so pretty.

  18. Just saw CTMH again for the first time in a long time and went on a spending spree too!

  19. I love this stamp set! Thank you so much for this awesome giveaway!

  20. Between my hubby being home and the kids running around like loons I goota admit I dont' get much done either, I seem to use the wee small hours of the night to get anything of any use accomplished lol. Thanks for the chance to win such a cool giveaway. Hugs xNx
