first let's get the business over with......tomorrow is 12of12!!! if you don't yet know what I am talking about check out Chad's blog over there on the right in my list of blogs!!!
now........Bazzil! aaah Bazzil!!! I have too much. well not that you can really HAVE too much beautiful cardstock....but I have a whole lotta Bazzil! so back in June I decided to go on a diet. yep! no more cardstock purchasing through the end of 2007! frightening, huh?!?!?!? but....can I tell you.....I haven't needed ANY!!! and since the day I went on this *diet* I have completed 79 layouts!!! not 79 pages.....but 79 layouts!!! that probably translates to about 110-110 actual pages! and I have yet to not have the color that I need! a few times I have had to look a little harder than normal.....but I have always found it. does this give you some idea of just how much cardstock I have??
oh yes.....and one night I was kinda bored and decided that all those misc pieces of cardstock I have in various places OTHER than in their color coordinated keepers needed to be sorted by color and put away. so I got them all out and started sorting. 10 INCHES of cardstock....... I probably should have just started working from that stack! lol!! I wasn't actually able to fit it all into the paper keepers and still have a stack waiting to get put away.
so far I have survived 4 months.....and only have 2 1/2 months to go. other than while I am at the LM crop I think this is going to be easier than I had first thought! I figured I would be going through cardstock withdrawals by now.
