How I organize my UNITY and an update on the GREAT cataloging project of 2011

Lots of pictures coming up!  Be sure you have a fresh drink!  :)
This is my scrap chair, Sassy keeps it warm  :) 
These are my unity wood, I love them out! 
 4 beautiful shelves of Unity *swoon*
 It starts with {ippity}these are in release order.
 This tiny section needs to be blended in I think LOL  They are add-ons to KOM or SMAK
 SMAK I keep them in date order.
 Stamp of the Week, I think I might put these will the other Itty Bitty's what do you guys do?
 This bin has the sets that have Spellbinders, I think I am going to get rid of them and mix them back in and put the dies with all the other dies.  What do you guys do?
The next shelf the first stufftainer is all the awesome singles from grab bags etc. that belong to sets I don't own, no real way to organize them and I won't catalog them either in hopes I get the whole set one day.  :)  Then I have less magazine holders than I need so I just alternate them from their sides to standing up.  The first are full sheet sets and I only separate them because I know I can't squeeze more in there if I move things around. 
 Next up is Unity in order as they will fit.  :)
Then we start with Authentique.... 
 We end with Websters Pages!
The bottom shelf is almost all Kit of the Month and then Unity single stamps and then regular itty bittys.  The co-branded ib's are with their company.  Please tell me how you organize your Unity!
 
Next is the cataloging of all the other brands it has been a VERY  long project!  LOL 
 
Here is the stack I am working on. Look how curled up the strips of post it notes are!
 Princess page is almost full!  
I store them in alpha order divided with pages from this Tag Album
 Here are two drawers open, I keep the stamps pushed up with things like a box of candles that I looked for all over for MONTHS. *gasp* I can't wait until this is finished LOL 
 Here is the completed book.  I have not decorated it or anything and I need to make permanent tabs
Sorry about the glare, in an earlier cataloging post I mentioned that I was worried the Stazon showing through would make it so I needed to ad blank paper between all the pages.  I do not have to do that back to back they work perfectly!  These pages are under 'things' how appropriate right?  LOL
 This box is the stamps that are finished but they need a tag decorated and labeled.
 This is what is left!  The photo box has stamps too big to fit into the drawers.  I guess I am going to buy Amuse DVD holders to store them.  I need them in the drawers so everything is together and easy to find.  All that I have left to do is Inkadinkado, TPC Studio and Hero Arts letters and calendar sets.  I can't wait to be finished and start on my Unity!  I know my Unity so well I thought I would save it for last.  Now I am excited because stamping all the sets separated into the catalog REALLY help you make better use of all the stamps you own.  I can't wait to see all of Unity's butterflies, tickets, owls all the food for recipes pages all together!!
I. AM. SO. EXCITED!
So is my girl!  :)  Thanks for stopping by!
Link me up please so I can see how you organize your stamps!  Are you cataloging them??  How do YOU know what you have?

Happy Friday Peeps!!

Before I get to Friends With Flair I need to share the cutest live stream I have ever seen.
It is a cage of kittens.  There are 4 of them and I want them ALL!  I even want Mama her facial expressions while she nurses crack me up!  I nursed Carlee for WAY too long and at the end I think I looked like Mama Cat!  LOL  Last night the owner got in the cage and weighed them all I have no idea why he and maybe his son are doing this but it is super cute and those cats LOVE him.  I could totally handle being loved on by 5 cats.  I'll be the cat lady in 40 years I am sure LOL  My cat Sassy was on the table head butting the screen and Carlee was in my lap we all love those cats LOL
 
OK Back to why you are here!  FWF YIPPEE!!!  I did the hip hop yesterday and am always so inspired to make something.  The same with FWF what a talented bunch of people the Unity fans are!!
 
I did a post yesterday on the sale.  Brown Friday *swoon* I got a ton of stamps and I am so excited to open that box and get to stampin'!!  Unity is shipping so fast now it makes me dance around the living room with my box while I head for the kitchen scissors.
This is another older card I am cleaning up all these scraps of paper and attempting to get them all on the blog.  :)
I think one day I will go to Hobby Lobby and buy the thick ribbon in every color on the next 50% off sale.  I LOVE thick ribbon on cards.  It makes for a bumpy knot and hard to mail and I don't mind.  LOL 
I love every single stamp in this kit.  Aren't they so cute??
Come join us and show us your project there are prizes to be won Peeps!!  :)
Have a great weekend and if you waste too much time watching the darling kittens I am truly sorry.  The housework isn't going anywhere, it's all going to be just fine.  *snicker*
Thanks for stopping by today!!

FAB Feature Wednesday!

Hi Peeps!!
This weeks feature is Gingham Christmas Greeting!
I love this set.  You can't tell from the picture but the holly berries and the embossed Happy Holidays are both metallic red.  Happy Holidays isn't pink like it looks LOL
Everything is embossed and the paper is from gcd Studio.  I had never heard of them.  It is a little kit I got on clearance at Hobby Lobby but I love it.  I will be on the look out for more from them.
Please head on over to our blog and see what all my amazing co-chicks have made this this fantastic set!
I have been sick and this is my first time back to the gym.  I still feel pretty sick but I know if I miss more than 3 days my perfect habit will be broken so I am off!
Have a beautiful day!
HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!
