Happy Friday!

It's finally Friday. The sun is shining and it's awesome! Sunshine makes me happy! Even a bad day doesn't seem so bad when the sun is out. I can't stand days of gloom, I've gotta have my sun and natural light!
It's been a long week but it's not like the weekend is going to be any different. lol My foot is still very sore from PT on Tuesday, but it's slowly getting better. I go back to PT on Monday, so I am guessing it's going to feel like crap once again in a few days. *sigh*

let me see... I made some things to hang in my scrappy space. I am thrilled with how they turned out and can't wait to hang them. I just *love* the MM Noteworthy collection! I think this is one of my favorite paper collections ever!

I am purging my alterable stash yet gain. I did so earlier last month and got rid of about half of it and decided that it was time to do it again. I have gotten rid of over half once again. I feel so free of the useless clutter. I am not a huge clutter fan, however I think I take after my grandmother at times; she saved and collected everything with the intent to use it. She never did. I have had several of these things for years. I just can't keep saving them with the thought of "someday I will use this". If I really need it later, I can find something else.
I moved some things around, including putting all my pp together on a higher shelf so it's more accessible to me now. I may have everything off the foosball table by the end of the day, too. At least that's the goal, but who knows what will happen. The kids might actually be able to use it now! heehee It seems to have become my catch all, and I pile more and more on it. Totally not cool.
We are going to be changing things up a bit downstairs to make it a more usable and functional space, so I need to downsize anyway. I am going to lose about 1/2 of my space for now, which is fine. I needed a real push to dump things I have no use for. I am pleased with how clean and organized my "improved" space is looking already. I wish I would have thought to take some before pics, but I just kind of dug in. I will get some after, which should be soon.

I received some gorgeous papers and stamps from Paper Trunk (thanks so much Carrie! :)) yesterday for my TDOM spot this month. Let me just say that this stuff is amazing! The texture and the colors are wonderful! I have one layout almost complete and an idea for a second one. The stamps look really fun and I am excited to use them, too!

I hope you have a fabulous day!
