Good evening! Yeah, you read it, it's confession time in the scrap blog... I'll start with a new personal law:
"I will stop pretending that I can stay away from shopping for more than three weeks, it is silly and I'm making a fool of myself trying to be someone I'm not. Trying and always failing gives me guilt feelings instead of happy feelings, which is super bad for creativity! Get a grip!"
So what have I done? I've just spent 1000 SEK (US$ 145 or 105 €) in half an hour and I'm feeling a bit light headed.
First I placed an order at CiLi in Papers, one of my favorite Swedish webshops, for Christmas papers and embellishments. Then I ordered two (yes, TWO!) large warehouse sale surprise grab bags at Freckled Fawn! That calls for some serious blog confession! But on the inside I'm actually jumping up and down like a child, clapping my hands like crazy, can't wait to get the packages and see all the lovely things I've bought!
Another thing that has been on my mind today is actually a "palm to the forehead" kind of thing. Until a few weeks ago I only owned black inkpads. Why would I want colored ones? No clue. A stamper like me stamps in black and color the areas that remain white with markers. Solid stamps have always been strange to me. Why would you want a solid black heart, flower, speach bubble or tag? Pure stupid. Why even bother making those stamps? Yeah, now you see where this is going! Palm to the forehead, don't you think?
I feel like a whole new level of stamping just opened up to me! I've been such a noob! Sigh!
Good night ladies, thanks for reading!

I've decided not to fall into the "dark red / dark green" hole again, I must try and be different for a change! The last two years I've bought Simple Stories collection packs for Christmas and I will not do that again, I love their style but I get so much elements left and I feel it is a waste of money to buy whole collections that give you so little creative freedom.
I'd love to keep it a bit lighter this year. I'd like to be able to add white and still go with the collection theme. I have found a few collections that I like:
"Nordic Pines" by Bazzill
"So this is Christmas" by Carta Bella
"Magical" by Studio Calico
"Wonderland" by Studio Calico (2012)
"Santa's list" by Teresa Collins
"Hello December" by Glitz
What to choose, what to choose...
Have a nice day!
