Inspired by Ginger Blossoms


What a busy weekend I have had! I worked on my new hobby...soldering. It is definitely one of those "practice makes perfect"...personally I like the bumpy, lumpy look...lol. I used my favorite Stampin' Up designer paper, Ginger Blossoms. I added an "inspire" charm that I've had forever...bought a whole package of them, probably at J's. This necklace has the ginger blossom dp on both sides..it is 13.25" long, my favorite.

On Saturday I hit my community garage sales. I probably should have been selling things but had much more fun buying things. The necklace is on a "french flower bucket" that I picked up for $1 {it is upside down for the picture}. I also bought a paper sorter like this one from Office Depot that retails for $120:

Guess how much I bought it for?? $10! Score! I've already loaded it up with all my Stampin' Up 8.5 x 11 paper and used my Dymo Letra label maker to print out the name of the colors...stored alphabetically...not by color family {that drives me nutty}.
