You know how goal focused I am. A bit of an overachiever. These two traits came into their own with this challenge. I did it. All 50 items. No cheating. I wondered for a while if the three minibooks I did for Libby's birthday could count as more than 3 items but decided I'd only be cheating myself!
The grand total of 50 is made up of 25 cards, 1 giftbox, 4 minibooks and 20 layouts. It was a brilliant way of breaking into all that stash. It made me less "precious" about the kits I had lying around (they are not to be kept like a museum exhibit - I paid good money for them. They should be used up!) I'm certainly going to keep going on this for another number (probably 50) before I allow myself to go shopping. I say "myself" because Libby was at The Big Stamp and Scrapbooking Show (Alexandra Palace) today and she's done a "bit" of shopping for me. Can't wait to see what she's got for me but it sounds like she has had a brilliant time and her arms are aching from the heavy bag(s?) full of gorgeousness. I'm pretty jealous!
But another challenge should keep my spending need under control and I 've such a long list of layouts I want to produce that another 50 items should be achievable again.
Thanks to Gretchen for a great challenge and for giving me the inspiration to follow through.
#'s 48 to 50!!!!
So chuffed with myself! Full of inspiration. This was such a boost to my mojo.
It's such a great idea. I recommend it to everyone. Join in and see what you come up with.
