What's On Tap Tuesday?!

Have you seen Cindy's new weekly feature, What's On Tap Tuesday?! I missed it last week, but it's a whole lotta fun getting a peek into where other's create, so I hope to participate as often as I can! and I have quite a photo heavy post for you today full of peeks into my life!

First, I will start by saying I am self-diagnosed with A.D.D., I can't seem to finish any one project before starting work on the next. This is true in my crafty world, in my work world, in my housekeeping world, but i always manage to get things done! So you'll understand a bit of why this post is all over the place!
I started working on this little bird the other day which is a part of my DT post at Creative Cuts & More this Thursday.

Here's the little bird again with a stack of Distress Inks behind him :)

While I was working on the bird, Luke was doing a little artwork of his own, so here is a peek at his workspace!  

Both of our projects got abandoned when Grammy took a spill. She is 93 and lives alone, at her insistence, so we have been spending A LOT of time there the past few days. Love this spunky lady!  

In the midst of all of this, I am also wrapping up Phase I of my stamp cataloging project! Here are three binders that I've had for awhile that I decided to continue using to store some of my clear and cling stamps that I've cataloged. Whatever doesn't fit in these will go in my 3 drawer Sterilite. (To the left are my AWESOME new Thin Stuftainers that I discovered (thanks to Noelle!) and these hold a small portion of my Unity stamps. I have some more of these on order and plan on converting ALL of my Unity and Ippity stamps into these containers-I LOVE how sleek they are and how they really streamline my Unity/Ippity storage and keep them all so neat and organized!  

Here's a peek inside of one of the binders above, this one holds My Favorite Things and Stampendous, as well as Pink Paislee and Memory Box. 

and then some pages of my new stamp catalog! I am SO proud of this :) and once again, I owe a thanks to Noelle for giving me the push to take on this project! 

Thanks for visiting me today :) and why don't you join in sharing YOUR space on WOTT?!??!

I have the same ADD problem (though undiagnosed....) I just wish I had the ability to abandon my compulsive need to keep all my kits together (my system is by kit) because knowing where all my birds are would be super, for example. Way to go, Nora Anne! Thanks for coming to WOTT. I hope your grammy gets better soon!

Sounds like you've got a ton going on! Way to go on your stamp organizing. It's looking fantastic. I need to do something like that myself. But yikes.......the work!
Hope your Gram is doing well. You are so lucky to have her. :)
