A Day For Daisies Bitsy Bug Rosa


I have some fun to share with you today!
I won at Use It Tuesday a couple of weeks ago and when that happens they ask if you'd like to be their guest designer for a future challenge and you know I said yes!

The challenge is to use 2 hoarded items on your creation.
I know my card does not look like I've used anything I've been hoarding so you get to join me for a little tour today.

The first thing I've been hoarding are all the papers but the Via Vellum Black.  If I don't have a full ream (250 sheets) of cardstock I tend to hoard it.


You are looking into one of the drawers under my kitchen table where I store cardstock.


This is a view of under the kitchen table storage for paper and other craft stuff.


I opened the door and drawer so you could have a peek inside.


Here's what the kitchen table looks like from the other end of the room.  There is built in storage for my craft stuff at each end and doors in the center that open for more storage.  In the design I planned for every inch of usable space to be taken advantage of.

The next thing I've used on my card that is hoarded is the ribbon I made the little bow with.  

Step out to the garage with me where I keep some of my craft items that won't melt in the extreme summer heat here in Arizona. 


These cabinets hold "most" of my ribbon stash.  January of 2010 I won 1300 yards of ribbon when Susan and I went to CHA in Anaheim.


I know it's hot out here, let's go back inside now.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

I guess your definition of hoarding and my definition of hoarding is different....haha And this is the neatest hoarding stash I have seen in a long time. I need to just throw out after seeing your area. By the way....love the little girl card....perhaps you were hoarding the polka dot purple paper.. Thanks for sharing your space with all of us Jan.

Loved the tour of your stash! It was fun seeing where all the super cards you make come together. Sharla V.

Loved the tour! Your system is awesome - wish I could say the same...someday maybe.

Something else I noticed we DO have in common - the finished cards proped up on the table in front of you. I do that ALL the time - as a matter of fact the card you sent me still sits in front of me for inspiration! :)

Another funny thing...black is the only card stock I order online in quantities of 250 and just had to order more because I was down to about 50 sheets. You get me, right? Even if my hubby doesn't you do?
