It's MOJO Monday!


This is for MOJO #109. Today's challenge in my stamp room is to organize my scrapboxes. They are about to overtake me. It's time to fight back!!!! I made use of some of the scraps still lying on my table and put them together to make this Christmas card. I love this mistletoe from the Peaceful Wishes set from Stampin' Up. The dp is some old retired SU paper as well. Now that I am no longer a demonstrator for SU, I value my retired sets much more than I did before. At a stamp swap this weekend, someone who is an SU customer said, I love my retired sets and it is sad they get treated like rejects at swap meets. I had to admit that demonstrators are only interested in making things with current marketable things in the catty, but it does send a negative message. Some of the ones customers own and want to use are no longer in the catty and their cards are criticized for that. Most of the swaps I have been to lately have not been SU only ones, and don't have that attitude about them. The point of these swaps for me when I was a demonstrator was to keep my customers stamping and loving the art. If they don't keep stamping, they don't replace papers or collect more for projects they are not doing!!!!So, keep stamping, keep using all those stamps you loved when you bought them, because they will still stamp endless amounts of great cards.
