I'm typing up this post from a very messy office! If you stopped by yesterday, you may have read that I am on a mission to un-clutter my office like never before. Not just clean up or reorganization, but I'm getting rid of about half or more of everything in it! Not only have I been paper crafting for years, but I used to manufacture cards for stationery and gift shops and have tons of supplies from that. I have an Etsy store too! I also adore all things paper related and let's just say I've had to have it all! So over the past seven years, in our current home, I've packed in quite a lot of stuff! Time to change some buying habits and share all this with others! I've come to realize you don't need all this to created great projects!

Enough of that! How about a scrapbook page share?

This page isn't for an assignment, I just wanted to play with some of my Doodlebug goodies! The collection I used is called Santa's Workshop. Loaded with cute elves, fabulous patterned papers, and Santa!

I got the idea for these stitched half circles from a Pinterest photo of a quilt.

Isn't this quilt stunning? I love the colorful patterns on a white background! This quilt was made by Camilla Roskelley and can be found on her blog Simplify. There are oodles of beautiful items made of quilting along with patterns available for those who can sew...which is not me!

Going right along page is about our nutcracker collection. We started collecting one nut cracker per Christmas when we moved to North Carolina seven years ago.

Have I mentioned how much I love this Santa's Workshop collection? This little elf cracks me up with his hammer in hand! He's been hard at work making toys for all the good little girls and boys...and maybe a few cool things for us paper crafters too? ;)

Well, I must get back to sorting through my office since I'm on a roll. And I've attempted to get this place pared down before without success!

I hope you all have a fabulous day!

Kathy :)
