OMG. After all your amazing comments last week I thought I'd sit down and count up how many stamps I have... luckily that doesn't mean I have to get into all those boxes and drawers and things- I keep a ring binder listing of them (I take it to the shows with me so I don't duplicate... although once at the Craft Barn I bought 2 of the same stamp on the same day - cos obviously I don't log them till I get home.... dohhh!!)
Anyhow, on Saturday I counted them up. Now, bear in mind that boxed sets or sets like the Wendy Vecchi ones that come on a sheet with several on, are listed by the stamp set name not individual stamps and so count as one not the full number . Are you all sitting down? The list came to..... 1479... Oh My Bloody Gosh! I knew I'd got to 1000 some time ago, but..... That's enough to open a shop (not that I could part with them, not even the ones I rarely use - so I'm sorry, but I won't be opening up for business!)
Now, this is a very boring picture, but I've opened the page at Hobby Art cos they were responsible forgetting me into stamping, when they had their shop here in Sutton (sadly no more) so, Jenny and Chris, it's all YOUR fault!!
At the back of the binder I also have things like books and inks and glimmers and things...anything that I don't really need 2 of, basically.
Finally, as this is what's on your WORKDESK Wednesday, what have I been up to this week? Well, I've started decorating the pages in the Tim Ruler book, (I will blog them all together when it's finished) but here are a couple to tickle your tastebuds!
the large flower does have a light layer of rock candy distress stickles (the bottle was nearly empty) but it's only shiny cos of the flash! I did blog a sneak preview of this yesterday with details of the colours, etc.
Apart from the text (Wendy V) the stamps are Paperartsy.
Now, I'm off for the marathon that is hopping round to see you all - please forgive me if I don't leave a comment absolutely everywhere, but I will get to you!
