culling and scrapping

I've made a start on culling things in my craft rooms. Boy this is going to take a long while, I have 8 shelves in my computer room and it took all day and 4 large charity sacks to clear just one shelf.

All of this is cross stitch and related things, chiefly books, that John and I collected when we were both stitching pictures. Then I started doing cards mainly with Pergamano (parchment craft)and left John to do the cross stitch. I just couldn't bring myself to dispose of them when John died and they came with me here, placed on the top shelf and forgotten about. Gone now, keeping just a few, one cross stitch and one or two others. I will keep the fabric may come in handy.

I've also been scrapping of course. I still have lots of photos from my Florida holiday to scrap, this one is Rufus doing what he most enjoyed, playing with a water cannon, this time at Legoland

I've also done the weekly challenge on UKScrappers to scrap something food related, use circles and or yellow as it is full moon this week. Finally to use lots of scraps

the only trouble with this page is that the theme doesn't fit any of my albums so not sure where to put it.

Today I am pleased and grateful for making a start on the craft rooms, something I've been putting off and putting off and really dreading, but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.

VERY well done on the culling - now to get it out of the house!
I love, love, love that first page - it really is superb!

It must have been hard to let those go in some ways. Good for you.

Great job getting started on the culling. It's never easy, even without the added complication of the memories of a loved one who has passed on. I adore the water park photos and the page you created with them.

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
