Stamp Studio Makeover – Part 2

Well, my stamp studio makeover and re-organization is coming together.  I love having my wall put back together, and I’m working on going through every drawer and cubby.  I keep finding things I forgot I own. The height of the wall units all being about the same is so much more eye pleasing. The white ones on the end need to get painted black to match.  I thought that would bother me, and I was right.  I absolutely love my new engineered wood floors.  I’m so glad we got them done before this bug starting spreading and keeping us house bound (not sure I’d want all those workers coming and going in my house under the current situation).  This photo was before they were finished, so their tools are still on my floor.
Green Moon Stamp Studio progress...the wall is organized and the floors are done.

I decided not to re-install the massive black shelf I had on the other side of the studio.  My husband came up with the idea of putting it in our closet.  Wow, it’s awesome in there, and now I have a boot shelf almost the whole length of the master closet.  It helps store my 20 pairs of boots…I kind of love boots!  Here’s a photo of the other side in progress.  I hated having my tables covered with everything, but that’s mostly put away now.

I also bought new green boxes through Ikea to replace my old red ones. But, since the store is closed, I had to order them online which means they won’t be here until the end of April.  Obviously, I didn’t have my Grand Re-Opening last week which just means I have more time to play in here and make it perfectly organized.  Since I knew the re-opening would be delayed, I decided to take it slower and have been working on other areas of the house too.  When I’m organizing in here, I get easily distracted and start making projects and spending time on the littlest of tasks…suddenly it’s 4pm, and I have no idea where the time went…lol.

Happy Stamping!

Stamp Studio Makeover – Part 1

My stamp studio makeover is well under way to being finished for my Grand Re-Opening event.  When I changed my business name from Barbara’s Craft Circle to Green Moon Stamp Studio a couple of year’s ago, I knew I wanted to re-paint my studio from red to green (which is my favorite color anyway).  Here is the before photo of the east side of my studio.

My studio starting out just being the converted dining room above, but since we never used the formal living room right across from it, I grabbed up that room too.  Here is the west side which we just painted a light taupe (the whole house got painted last year—no more white walls, yay!).  I can’t wait to re-organize the wall units so they are the same height all the way across.  I ordered a few more paper organizers too which will help it look more uniform.

I got the walls finished in a light soothing green a couple of weekends ago.  I love my new sign too.  Tim and I went to a flea market about a year ago, and I bought this old window for about $15 to put my logo on.  Tim helped me put the logo on and hung it for me last weekend to get it off the floor in preparation for our new flooring.

And right now the new flooring is being installed…what a mess.  I hate moving everything and worrying about damage to furniture and walls, but I know it’ll all be worth it in the end.

We are getting the bigger baseboards too.  Goodbye 22 year old carpet, I won’t miss you.  Stayed tuned for part 2 of my stamp studio makeover.  Also, if you’re local to DFW, my Grand Re-Opening event is on Friday, March 27th, and Saturday, March 28th, including a sale, make’n’takes, and door prizes.

Parisian Beauty Vintage Card

I designed this vintage card that uses the Parisian Beauty and Forever Blossoms stamp sets as a make’n’take for my vendor show this weekend.  I have 100 stampers making this card tomorrow night at the Mesquite Convention Center in Mesquite, Texas.  Wow, I just looked it up, and this will be my 8th year to do this Stamp Scrap Art Tour Show.  My daughter just moved backed to Texas and will be my helper all weekend.  The make’n’take is Friday night and shopping is Saturday and Sunday.  Come see me if you live in the North Dallas area.

Stampin’ Up! Retired List – 2019

It’s time to make room for great new products and say goodbye to some of our favorites and the In Colors that are 2 years old.

Stampin Up retired lists 2019 for occasions and annual catalog.

Here are the lists:

Retiring stamp sets will have guaranteed availability until May 24; all other products are not guaranteed and are available while supplies last only.

Make sure to place your online orders here as soon as possible to ensure that you can get all the items you want.  Take inventory of your In Color items to make sure you have ink refills and card stock for your favorite colors before they are out of stock.  The trimmer accessories are already out of stock before the list announced, except more replacement blades are coming on April 29th.

One thing we noticed right away was that the old favorite, Lovely as a Tree, finally is retiring.  It’s been kind of a joke among us demonstrators that they would never retire that one.  One of my downlines, Becky, said she finally bought that one a few days before OnStage.  So, we can blame her—like washing your car, now that she finally bought it, it’s retired.

Oh, also, once the existing inventory of stamp sets that carry over into the new annual catalog are depleted, they will be replaced with the cling versions.  So, you might be getting cling versions of existing sets before they are “available” in the new catalog.
