A few more days of dining room table bliss

My husband is out of town on a business trip until Thursday, so I have taken over the dining room table again for craft space. I am bummed at the prospect of packing it all up because it has been so productive to have 3 projects going simultaneously. And it makes my own craft table look so clear and empty and inviting!

I am loving working on the dining room table and loving my stash. I keep thinking of ideas for things to do and am totally patting myself on the back for already having the necessary supplies and not needing to go out and shop for it. In fact, I will confess, I was in Archiver's on Sunday and actually felt somewhat uninspired by the products and was anxious to come home and play with my own (old) stuff rather than bring home new stuff. I think that is a first for me. It has taken years, but I have finally grown my stash to a point where I feel I have everything I need and it inspires me.

Here are some close-ups of some of the things I have out:

Day 24 of my December Daily album, with a sneak peek of the ribbon and metal tags I used on the cover. I bought the gold tags and envelopes on clearance last year at Paper Source because they were an amazing deal - it was fun to finally break into them and use them! You can also see some fabric from a quilt I am working on - more on that soon.

Some cool resist ink paper from Stampin Up that maintains the white image when you ink it. I used chocolate chip ink and a brayer to get this look. It will be for Day 10 of my December Daily album.

In our next house, I definitely need a bigger work surface for crafting. Or at least more shelf/storage space so that I can keep my supplies off the table but still within reach.
