STAMPIN’ UP! LAST CHANCE & SAVINGS:




703 Comments:

  1. My New Years resolution for crafting is to make more time for it. Life is busy with two young boys and building a house. It’s going to be my priority to make time at night after children are in bed 🙂

  2. My resolution is to spend more time in my craft room, creating all the cards that i have saved on my computer. That will keep me busy for quite a while. I love seeing what other people have made, the many different idea out there.

    • Reorganization is at the top of my list. I plan on making more cards for my personal use as well as making sets for gifts. I send out cards for Ministry of Compassion at church and the Big Shot would help my productivity. I see it on the radar. Thank You! And here’s wishing you a Healthy & Happy New Year.

  3. My resolution is to donate more cards to the nearby nursing homes this year. I did this earlier in the year and they were so excited to receive them.

  4. I am going to try to get out of my comfort zone more next year. I’ve looked back at some of the cards I made this year and realized they all look about the same. I’ll have to break out all that DSP I’ve been hoarding!

  5. Michele Schroyer

    My resolution is to reorganize my craft room and spend more time in there being creative. I have so many card ideas saved and so many pictures I want to try using with My Project Life .

  6. I am going to stop saving every little “scrap” of paper. That will give me so much moe space on my little table.

  7. I am excited for 2016 and am looking forward to actually setting up a craft room. My husband built me shelves and cupboard back in October and I got sick and still even now not feeling up to going in there and sorting through my stamps and such. I am so looking forward to being able to play!

  8. Barbara Walters

    I am very fortunate that my husband of 34 plus years is a carpenter. He continually needs to add more shelves in my “craft” room as time goes on. He loves it, because it makes me happy making SU cards. Thank you for all you do!

  9. Veronica Cordry

    In 2016 I will try to send more of the cards I make:)

  10. My resolution is to make two cards at a time when I paper craft so that I have an extra on hand. Usually I make one at a time but since my paper crafting time is so precious I need to make better use of that time. What better time to make another card than when I have all the stuff I need out and ready!

  11. Mary….Happy New Year to you and your family! For Christmas my family purchased for me one of the bundles from Stamp n Storage and you can only imagine the excitement! I could not wait to unpack everything and arrange it in my craft room. I have been in my craft room every night getting everything just so and I have been creating my Thank You cards to send. What a difference having everything at my finger tips, it is just amazing! I hope to order the stamp case shelf this week-end so I can have my stamp sets close at hand too. Thank you for all your inspiration and a chance to win the blog candy!

  12. Gloria kaufmann

    My goal for 2016 is to send more cards to people who in nursing homes or are “shut-ins” and can use the encouragement of a card in their mailbox.

  13. Happy New Year!! My resolution is to spend more time in my craft room. I have my first grand baby coming this summer and I plan to start using some of the project life I plan on purchasing. So excited! Thank you for all your inspiration, I enjoy your blog each and every day.

  14. I am creating a new craft room! I am excited to have a room of my own, no more cramped spaces, no more limits on what I can buy and what I can create! Yay!! ?

  15. In 2016 I plan to make more and different types of cards with others.

  16. Have more people over to make cards and socialize

  17. Reorganization and downsizing/decluttering is definitely on the menu!

  18. My goal for the new year is to keep a better inventory of what I DO have so I can plan and purchase wisely!

  19. My New Year resolution is clean my craft room!!! I am going to be a Great Aunt in June so need to get my butt in gear so I can make things for him or her. So excited. Happy New Year’s to you and your family.

  20. My 2016 resolution is to keep my work area clutter-free! I would also like to create more cards with my kids!

  21. Carolyn Wagner

    I am for sure going to sort and reorganize all my paper by color and try to use the scraps more for making cards.

  22. 2016 – craft room finally becoming a reality. Floor goes in on the 8th, then the custom cabinets. Have one ordered from Brett at Stamp N Storage. My goal this year is to stay organized with a place for everything. Give it a place and replace after use. Then complete at least 5 Christmas cards per month!

  23. 2016 – finally organizing the craft room so that I don’t have to clear a place to work! I have the containers and things, but need to figure out what to put where! And – to get my 2016 Christmas cards done before December!

  24. Cheryl Gehring

    I want to incorporate more mixed media into my card making.

  25. My hope is to have many cards made up in advance and not have to scramble every time I need one. Make multiples of the same design.

  26. Ronna Crowley

    Reorganize, declutter and downsize are in order. It is hard to let go, but it needs to be done. By doing this I am hoping I will be able to scrapbook more and make more cards. Happy New Year to everyone!!!!!!!

  27. My goal is to simplify and have fun. I would like to have enough cards on hand that whenever I or my family needs or wants one it is there.

  28. I plan on getting my craft space started in our basement and start Christmas cards in October and I will send them out next year.lol. Thanks Mary for a wonderful year of creative ideas.

  29. Christine Winslow

    My resolution is to use more of the designer paper I am hoarding and not keep every scrap I have left over.

  30. I am always trying to reorganize, but my goal for 2016 is to get scraps under control and learn more techniques.

  31. My goal is to use every stamp set and die that I’ve purchased. And if I don’t love using it- get rid of it and simply use the things I love- of which there are plenty!

  32. Cammi Waggoner

    My resolution for 2016 is to get better organized. My work space at work is finally organized so my goal to organize my stampin space. I also hope to make a card everyday so I have extras on hand!

  33. decided to order the paper organizer from stamp n storage after all card making starts with PAPER

  34. I need to use my limited crafting apace more effectively this coming year. I’m considering labeling my shelves where I store my stamps so I can find specific stamp sets easily. I should also pull some of the stamps I am not using and share them with friends that could use them.

  35. I would like to make more birthday cards AND actually send them!! I started off last year doing pretty well, but…. I used the long retired Flower of the Month set (which I still love) and got up to March, so need to really use it more. Happy New Year to all from a finally snowy MN 🙂

  36. Devon McChesney

    I want to pick three sets of stamps each month and make three cards from each set.

  37. i am really hoping that i can get my craft area better organized AND craft more. i have LOTS of ideas saved (many from your blog) that i would like to duplicate. i also need to purge some OLD stuff!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your blog and all the inspiration you provide. thank you!! 😀

  38. I want to have birthday cards made, months in advance, addressed, and ready to send as the date approaches. If you’re going to dream you might as well Dream BIG! 🙂

  39. My goal is to get my older stamps into stampin up cases and every month pick a stamp set that has not been used and give it some love.

  40. I want to be more organized as far as my Craftroom goes and not be so “last minute” !!!! A girl can dream, right ??? lol

  41. My dad is in assisted living here. I made Christmas cards for all the residents this year. My goal is to get birthday lists and make sure they receive a card on their special day this coming year!

  42. I plan to organize my paper into their groups (brights, subtles, regals, etc) AND organize my scraps. That will make me a happy stamper.

  43. I plan on having birthday cards for family & friends made at least 1 month in advance. I am also going to purge my craft room donating all purged items.

  44. I AM HOPING TO GET MY DSP IN ORDER SOMETIME IN THE NEW YEAR.

  45. For the first time this year, instead of making one style of Christmas card to send family and friends, I made 4 or 5 each of several different card styles. This year’s card making was FUN!. No more assembly line processing of one card – which can get old after a while. I resolve to make my Christmas cards this way every year.

  46. First I need to reorganize, then I plan to double my card making. My goal for 2016 is to send more cards, especially to shut ins, seniors and to continue the cards for our
    local Children’s Hospital. I have been blessed with all my Pals during 2015 and will
    continue to count my blessings for them in 2016.

  47. In 2016, I want to spend at least 15 minutes a day scrapbooking or making cards–might not be much each day, but it will add up over time–over 90 hours for the year! Happy New Year Everyone!

  48. I moved and have a garage turned into a craft/ sewing room. It is heated/ cooled and loads of light. Right next to laundry room for easy chores. I need to redo so can use it more. i love crafts of all kinds but just need to be organized, I can’t do anything much when stuff isn’t in a orderly fashion. So I’ve go to move things around and redo.

  49. My plan is to organize as I spend way too much time trying to find what I need. And to keep the chaos to a minimum while I craft, it tends to get out of control fast!!

  50. I am constantly reorganizing my craft space. I got some re-organization things for Christmas and my son even asked me if I liked organizing as much as crafting. I told him they are almost equal, but of course I enjoy the crafting part more!

  51. My resolution is to make more cards/spend more time on my card making. Happy New Year!

  52. I resolve to create something every day. Creativity is so much better than therapy!

  53. I resolve to clean my crafting space and I can’t wait to get started…will be fun! I need to thin some things out and I want to break out my project life cards and get my albums going. Happy New Year, Mary!

  54. I plan on making more cards to donate.

  55. For 2016 I plan to scrapbook more. To work on combining card designs with scrapbook layouts.

  56. Mary- so many resolution, not enough months, lol. I have used my craft room for a wrapping station and catch all for the holidays, so my resolution is to get things back the way they were before the holidays, so I can begin my New Years refilling my card stash. Thank you so much, you inspire me daily. Thanks for an opportunity to win this giveaway, It was one of the ones I was not able to get but wanted.

  57. I want to dedicate more time to planning ahead, to have a stash of cards so I am not scrambling each and every time I need a card to mail out…starting with an orderly stamping area on New Year’s Eve.

  58. One of my 2016 resolutions is to continue to organize and de-clutter my craft room. I want to actually find a stamp set when I need it, get rid of items I do not use and have room to make cards. Thank you for your daily inspiration.

  59. My resolution for 2016 is to finish cards sets that I have started, to give as birthday gifts. So many friends say they are tired of buying the same old cards at the store, so I know those people would really appreciate a homemade card set.

  60. I plan on reorganizing my craft room to make it easier to locate and utilize my crafting supplies, to create more space for me to create cards and projects.

  61. I want to organize my space, it seems like my space is constantly getting out of hand with every single project I make so something needs to be done to keep it neat and better organized.

  62. I want to get all of my stamps organized into clear pockets along with the matching dies. I need to go through all of my supplies and organize them better too. I want to try to put away things each time I finish a project so my craft space is ready to go.

  63. I’m thinking that I’m going to brighten my room up with some bright colors. Paint and what ever will give it some color. Happy New Year.

  64. To carve out a section of time every day to make cards.

  65. One of my resolutions this year is to send at least one card a week! I have been so lax with sending cards and that’s got to change!

  66. I hope to make and send more cards next year. I wish I had a crafting space but all I have is a closet this isn’t nearly be enough. Happy New Year!!!

  67. I plan to organize my stamps and dies into clear pockets and label them, so I know what I have. I hope to clear out some DSP and make room for some of that gorgeous new paper in the spring occasions catalog.

  68. I am really hoping to get a new desk and cabinet to make my craft room a little more efficient and utilize products that I forget I have. Happy New Year!

  69. Julie Pluemer

    My New Year’s resolution is to start using some the stamps I haven’t used before I buy more. I also want to make more cards

  70. One of my 2016 resolutions is to organize all of my DSP’s. I also need to devote more time to stamping, “period”. I read an idea in one of the comments above about making cards and donating them to a local nursing home. What a wonderful idea – will DEFINITELY consider doing the same.

  71. Jackie Warchol

    My new years resolution is to come up with some great card ideas. I just love creating & making cards.

  72. Hello Mary: First of all, warm hugs and best wishes for you and your family for a Joyful and Healthy 2016!!!!!
    Ok, my plans for my craft room is to finally paint it, I’m thinking pretty yellows, soft lavenders and greens.
    My other resolution is that I really need to make an effort to keep this room as neat as possible, putting away material and stamp sets, dies, etc. back where they belong before I start another project. I mean, it’s not chaotic in here but, like right now, it can be a bit less messy, LOL!!
    Last but definitely not least, I will try to organize my blog better.
    Thank you for the chance to win this fabulous blog candy.

  73. My resolution is to actually look at and use a birthday/special event calendar I created a few years ago. At the beginning of each month, I’m going to get organized and select cards from my “stash” or make new ones for each person who has a special day that month and get them ready for mailing.

  74. Absolutely, clean my craft room! I have stacks and stacks of things to be put away and I feel like I’m running out of room. But, if I’m realistic, I have lots of stuff from when I first started paper crafting that I know I will NEVER use. So I resolve to clean it up and quit being a hoarder.

  75. My plan is to spend more time making cards. I have some stamps I haven’t inked up yet and I plan to play with those as well.

  76. Mary, since we took in a stray cat, my craft Room has become Sarah’s condo, since she and house cat do not get along, and now with our rescue dog, Charlie…well, I have crafted on the long dining room table but no re-thinking my time and useage of craft room, organization, more Stamp and Storage for my SU supplies and on goes the gift of yet another day, year….many blessings in 2016!!! Dottie

    • I resolve to clean out and reorganize the craft room. Donate all the “older” DSP to my friend for her school. Also any discontinuing card stock for those projects too!
      I also resolve to buy only those I item I plan on using for the season, only. Yeah, right!

  77. Chick Alizadeh

    When I moved back from Iran in 1998, I found SU and it started my love affair with crafting cards…. I lived in the same home until 3 years ago.. I am an organized crafter and knew where everything was…. then I moved to a Senior apartment building, and reorganized my craft areasssss into one room… but life got busy and I was not able to craft everyday.. also die cutting became an obsession of mine… Now I remember where things were in my old craft areassssss… but cannot remember where they are in our new location… So My resolution is to get back to making something EVERY morning before work, like I used to do… it will not only get me pumped for the day… it will help me to learn the new home for all my many supplies. Thank YOU Mary for all your wonderful inspirations…. you have helped me through a crazy time in my life.. .where I have had and still have some cancer health challenges…the first thing I do over morning coffee is to see if there is a new post from you!! YOU have kept me going everyday…. NOW you have inspired me to learn where everything is… so that I can spend more time crafting and less time searching.. May 2016 be OUR(you, me and all your beloved followers) best year yet!!

  78. This is embarrassing – My resolution is to actually send cards that I make. Very often, I will make a card with a new tool or stamp and just like it too much to part with it. Crazy, huh? I am going to make sure friends and family receive cards throughout the year!

  79. Set up a permanent craft space! I have laid it out on paper. The boxes are piled in the corner from Ikea. I just need to buckle down and DO IT!

  80. I just reorganized and painted my craft room…so I would like to spend more time in there!! I hope to get more cards made and SENT…and to scrapbook more so I’m not like 7 years behind on my kids books 🙂

  81. My resolution this year is to make all my Christmas cards before Thanksgiving! I want to avoid that not so fun feeling of mass producing my cards!

  82. This new year (and several new years before this) my goal has been and is to move my craft space from a hallway to a room. Thank you and Happy new year!!!

  83. My resolution is to spend more time making all the cards I have saved on my computer!

  84. My resolution is to spend more time stamping. 2015 was pretty hectic for many reasons so I only had a handful of opportunities to stamp and I have pretty much depleted my card stash so 2016 will be all about finding time to be creative.

  85. My resolution is to kick in my “life’s too short” saying and quit feeling guilty about spending time “playing with paper” instead of doing “grown-up” work!

  86. My resolution is to use the cards I have made to keep up with birthdays,anniversaries, etc. and to get rid of scraps!

  87. I already have a binder with vinyl inserts (4 each side) with all my stamp set pictures arranged alphabetically which I find invaluable when looking for images. Now I am in the process of making sample DSP sheets listing the name, the 12 samples (1″ circle punchouts) and the coordinating cardstock. Once I have a visual reminder of the DSP that I have, I hope I will use it more often.

  88. My plan is to use all my wonderful Stampin up products often and then all the new ones that I buy from sale a bration, enjoy immediately and spend lotsa time making cards. I enjoy it so.

  89. I hope to finish the perpetual calendars I started for friends and family ages ago.

  90. Hooly Thomsen

    I keep putting more and more in my craft space (the new is always too good to pass up) but it needs some trimming and organizing. My goal is to make it all fit in my small space with some good DIY organizing that I have marked to use on Pintrest.

  91. To make a card of every card that I have pinned under card ideas on pinterest

  92. It’s easy for me to know exactly what to do since the other day when I couldn’t find what I was looking for, I stumbled across a few small items that I’d forgotten were there! I need to reorganize my drawers and use up those things that have been neglected.

  93. My New Year paper crafting resolution is to make my cards ahead of events, rather than afterwards as has been the pattern for me this year. ;( I have found creating in bulk of a particular design helps with this. Thank you for the giveaway.

  94. To look at the week ahead and make sure I block out time for stamping each & every week!

  95. With my husband’s help I’ve already started the process of switching our guest bedroom into a craft/computer space….a larger room with better light! My resolution is to get all of my papers, punches, inks, bling, etc. properly labeled and organized before the end of January! Then the real fun begins.

  96. I would like to begin having small get together at my home and start being more than just a hobbyist demonstrator. I think once I have one group meet, it will get easier for me to continue being a demonstrator.

  97. As I’ve been re-tweaking my paper playroom to make it more play friendly, I have decided my resoultion is to send or hand out one card I make each month to new and old friends.

  98. I have already taken off all my wood block stamps and organized them into jewel cases. So much easier to store now. And I made a folder of each stamp and case # marked so I could easily find them. Next is to organize all my paper and punches.

  99. I hope to get my craft room more organized. I do need to re-fill my cards box.

  100. Barbara McConnell

    My crafting resolution is to put things away when I am finished using them instead of waiting until I can’t see my table surface!

  101. Marilyn Aldridge

    My goal this year is to reorganize my dies. I recently received magnet cards free with an order from Stamp n Storage. Now I need to put them to use.

  102. Kathy Mackintosh

    Reorganizing so I can spend more regular time making cards and gifts. And it’s time to consider giving up some retired stamp sets – so it’s not so overwhelming to get started.

  103. Organizing for sure! Started yesterday and was amazed by what Zi found in my Paper Pumpkin drawer alone. Thanks for a chance to win this blog candy… Love that little penguin set!

  104. All of my stamp sets are organized in alphabetical order. I’ve sorted through and pulled a couple dozen out of the hundreds I own. Now I am going start with the very first stamp set and create something with it … all the way from A to Z in 2016!! (Of course I will use any new items I purchase on top of this!) Now to remember how to use my blog!!!

  105. alysann pettinati

    my resolution is to make a 2nd of every card I create! I always just make one, so I will start making two! happy new year!

  106. To not buy any pretty paper until I use the ton that I already have…. Chances of that happening slim to none…

  107. Get more organized…try to sell some of my retired stuff…which is hard as I only buy what I love…but running out of space! Happy New Year Mary…you are truly an inspiration!

  108. my new resolution is to make a duplicate of every card I do so I have one on hand for the last minute need!! There is nothing like special card made with love.

  109. I have just reorganize my craft studio so my resolution for 2016 is to make all birthday card for the entire month at the beginning of the month and not wait until the day of the birthday! ?

  110. My resolution for 2016 is to start and continue to participate in challenges instead of pretty much only making cards as needed for personal use. Get those creative juices flowing. Happy New Year!!

  111. I want to re-organize my supplies to make access and creation of cards easier. Then maybe I can actually make more cards this year! Happy New Year!

  112. Maggie Carmody

    Some of my crafting resolutions are to organize all of my framelits on magnetic sheets and to make extra card “guts” every time I craft. I have found that inspiration often strikes when I pull out those extra pieces because I can combine elements in unusual and often beautiful ways, plus it saves so much design time.

  113. I just cleaned, purged (big time) and reorganized my craft room so I’m ready for the 2016 stampin’ to begin. My resolution is to spend MUCH more time crafting in 2016!

    Happy New Year!

  114. Happy New Year, Mary! Definitely organizing is in order for 2016 of SU supplies and developing a ‘designated’ space to DO any and all SU cards/3D projects! Up til now, it takes me forever to do a simple card and my craft room looks like a cyclone hit it! Wish me luck!

  115. Shannon Miller

    My New Year’s resolution is almost always to get better organized so I can be more productive throughout the year! This time I have gotten a better headstart by donating a few things to a thrift store and beginning to organize things BEFORE the holidays began. Maybe I will actually be able to do a bit better in 2016!!

  116. I want/need to organize my craftroom space so I can spend less time looking for things and more time creating!

  117. My crafting New Years resolution is to organize and spend at least one day a week crafting !

  118. I am going to organize my stamps (she said laughingly) they are all over and I need to get them together someplace where I can find what I am looking for.

  119. mary jo miedema

    I have spent the last couple days reorganizing my craft space so things are easier to find, less overwhelming, and flow more smoothly. I got out my perpetual calendar and have begun to make cards, ready to send , for the birthdays and anniversaries in 2016. I will continue to visit inspiring blogs such as your’s for my daily dose of creativity.

  120. To send more cards and lessbirthday wishes in text messages

  121. I resolve to clean up more frequently. I need expanded storage for punches, embossing folders and dies so I’ve been exploring the options. Happy New Year

  122. Getting ready to waterproof basement so I can change a large section for crafts and stamping. Can’t wait till I organize it. Happy New Year.

  123. Jessica Lewis

    I already got started before the new year. I’m currently organizing my stamp sets and keeping an inventory of them in a binder. Lots of work!!!

  124. I’m reorganizing! I’ve just ordered new storage pieces for my ink pads and re-inkers. That will begin the process of rearranging and making things easier to reach! I love spending time in my stamping room, so can’t wait to start making more cards! Happy New Year!

  125. My 2016 is to utilize the supplies that I own. That doesn’t mean I won’t buy additional supplies in 2016, it just means I need to spend more time card making! 🙂

  126. Talented and kind brilliant blog.

  127. I resolve to win more blog candy giveaways from Mary Fish this year. 🙂

  128. My goal is to actually give/send cards to people instead of thinking about it. So I’ll need a stash of nice basic cards ready to go instead of making one for each need.

  129. Jennifer Newell

    I plan to purchase the big shot. I currently own the cuttlebug and become frustrated when the dies shift. The magnetic plate would making die cutting a breeze. Happy New Year!

  130. Christine Wojciechowski

    This year I hope to catch up! I want to finish many incomplete projects and get caught up on my scrapbooking.

  131. I just had water in my basement, so had to pull up the carpet tiles so I am currently in complete disorganization! Sounds like a good time to reorganize some things! Otherwise, my goal is to make one card a day 🙂

  132. My goal is to use what I have, bless others with my surplus supplies and to keep encouraging others with cards. My husband has just set up a new station in my craft area that I am excited about for my cutting, score board/envelope punch board and cuttlebug. I love it!

  133. To make more cards. Thanks for the chance to win.
    Happy New Year to you and your family 🙂

  134. I hope to organize my stamps and ink pads. Spend a lot of time looking for the items I want to use.

  135. My resolution is threefold: (1) use my less-used stamps more often, (2) keep my crafting space free of clutter, and (2) finish my 2015 vacation scrapbook. Ha!

  136. Mine is to simply make more cards. I have so many supplies and wonderful stamps that don’t get used nearly enough!

  137. My plan is to complete organizing all my materials so I have more time to create instead of looking for the stamp, embossing folder, or embellishment that i know I have…somewhere.

  138. My 2016 goal is offer my time and craft supplies to bring pleasure to the residents of the nursing home where my mother is. The simplest projects bring smiles and stimulation to the seniors there!

  139. Victoria Stewart

    The past year saw me transition from a home to a motorhome traveling the country. I carry eight Tupperware bins in one of the bays in the underbelly of the beast. My uber organized craft room has become haul out, quick craft and put away…so this year I want to rethink the bins and relocate them to a bay that doesn’t require bending under a slide to get to my ‘toys’. Just spent a week house sitting for my kids…crafted every day!

  140. My resolution is to put things back where they belong so I’m not frustrated when I want to begin a project and to make more than just one card at a time.

  141. Also had water leak and had to take everything off the floor and pull up carpet to dry. I can’t wait to get in my room and put it back together. I miss being able to stamp and create!

  142. Monique Bromley

    Mine is to organize my studio to have better flow and be more productive.

  143. SEND more cards. I have a bad habit of making cards but never sending any of them.

  144. I think I will be blessed with one room for my Stampin ‘Up! In 2016. My hope is that I can get it organized to be very efficient. I spend a lot of time stamping. I AM SO EXCITED and grateful. I’m very blessed.

  145. Make more cards. I have gotten so many great ideas from your site – now is the year to put them to use! Happy New Year.

  146. I plan to use what I have as I have just had my studio re-done in the fall. I have everything in the room but want to reorganize a few more sections of it and then I want to start making 10-12 cards at a time in one design so I’ll have more cards to send and give away. My new studio is a dream, just like yours was to you, and I truly enjoy working in the room. I’ve given away most of my stash of cards as gifts so it is time to start making lots of them to send. I truly enjoy my new room with all the counter space to let cards dry or whatever is needed. It is easier to craft when you have the clean space to work off of. Thanks for your inspiration with your lovely space and great ideas for cards!

  147. I am looking forward to getting together with my friends to make cards once a week. Everyone comes up with a new card and share it with everyone. We end up with lots of new ideas.

  148. I’ll be creating more cards which are donated to various organizations to distribute.

  149. Definitely need to get organized. My stamp room is a mess right now. Just need the time and stop procrastinating..

  150. I am hoping to reorganize my craft space. I hope to get some of the same storage systems you use for my punches, ink, and dies.

  151. My goal is to master layers, frames and borders on cards.

  152. barbara roberts

    I am always looking for new ways to store and organize! And I am going to try to overcome my hoarding fetish and donate retired stamp sets, an overflow of designer paper, and other crafting items to the art department in a local elementary school.

  153. I have organized as much as I can given the space I have, so now I need to get busy and make more cards AND SEND THEM!

  154. I want to try more techniques on my cards this year and use stamps that haven’t seen ink in awhile. I also want to think outside the card box for other stamping alternatives. Hope your 2016 is great!

  155. My crafting resolution for 2016 is to start using a different die and stamp set for each card I make from the dies and stamps that I have never used. Yes, I have lots of them! And of course, I will continue to buy new!!
    Happy New Year everyone!

  156. I want to organize my paper scraps better so it’s easier To find what I’m looking. Also, I want to do more embossing and die cutting this year.

  157. I definitely have a resolution to clean and reorganize my craft room this year! The sooner I get it done the better! Happy New Year!!

  158. My resolution for 2016 is to spend more time in my craft room and making cards up in advance to have on hand when needed. This year I made over half the xmas cards I sent out but would like to make all of them for next year. Also organizing my space to fit my needs a little better is a goal of mine.

  159. My crafting resolution is to really organize my paper supplies, downsize ( not my stamps,tho) and devoting a little more time to card making.

  160. My crafty resolution is to participate in more card sketch challenges and finish organizing my craft room!

  161. Karen Tramuta

    I have already started by ordering my Stamp N Storage unit for Christmas! I can’t wait till it is set up. Hopefully, this will start a chain reaction in getting my space super organized.

  162. Love all the ideas you’ve shared over the year look forward to all the new ones in in the new year. Happy New Year.

  163. Yes I definitely will be reorganizing. I always start the New Year off by going through things not only in my “studio” but the whole house as well. A move is in the plans for this summer so I will be purging everywhere.

  164. My resolution is to purge… paper from 2010 anyone?… I admit I have things “I just love”, but I hope I can let them go and make more space so I can craft more (and get some new 2016 goodies! LOL).

  165. My resolution is to re-claim my space. Clean it up/organize it so I can easily go in and create quickly. Thank you!

  166. I’ll be moving, so definitely restructuring my work space–no resolution needed! But, I am resolving to participate in more online challenges in order to help me develop a style and not just CASE!

  167. My resolution is to get more organized and get rid of what I don’t use–to make more cards

  168. My New Year resolution for 2016 is to de-clutter my card space and make room for new items I plan to buy from the new catalog. I want to make more cards in 2016!

  169. Organize Organize Organize! I have a plan in place so now I just need to do it!!!
    That is my goal for January 2016!!!

  170. I am going to really purge my crafting supplies and older stamp sets in January 2016, Maybe I should start today. Finally going to get rid of all my retired SU ink pads,and paper. I always use the current ones so why keep them any longer, most are 10 years old now.

  171. My goal for 2016….organize and purge!! Got a plan and have started saving money and purging!!!

  172. I plan to make and send more cards (as in a card sent out a day in the year 2016). I attempted to do that this year so it was a “start” in the right direction. I also plan to organize my craft stuff so that I can find things in a more efficient manner.

  173. Thanks for your generous giveaway, Mary! My resolution is to organize my craft space and donate items I no longer need (such a hard thing to decide because I think I “need” everything!) Lets cross our fingers that I keep this resolution. 🙂

  174. My plan is to organize my craft space and finally get a bar-height crafting table instead of using the kitchen table!!!

  175. Happy New Year to you, Mary, and to all Stampin’ Pretty Pals!

    For 2016, my Papercrafting Resolution is threefold:

    -As an Artist’s Mom, I will use my SU Products to create cards and mixed-media artwork to share with my Artist Daughter the gift of creativity.

    -As a US Airborne Army Ranger’s Mom, I will create and send cards to my son, deployed US troops, and US Wounded Warriors to give the gift of patriotic support and admiration for their courage and bravery, in thanks with heartfelt gratitude for their service to our country.

    -As a disabled MSer and Oral Cancer Survivor, I will donate cards to the National MS Society and the Oral Cancer Foundation to give the gift of hope.

    Thank you, Mary, for your daily inspiration and creativity!

  176. I will continue to organize and purge! Been working on this for several months. But I don’t have the space to move it all out of my room, then put it all back, purging as I go. Hence the reason it’s taken so long! Thanks for the chance to win these goodies.

  177. I will continue to organize and learn to clean as I go as I do in my kitchen, sometimes that is hard. Right now it is a mess with all the Christmas stuff still out.

  178. First I need to get rid of old SU n then organize my craft room so it’s more sufficient n will make me want to make more cards!!

  179. Kandis Becher

    My goal in 2016 is to use something old from my stash on every scrapbook layout I create. I hope to create and send two cards each month, one going to the recipient just as a TOY random card they would not expect.

  180. I just have to do some organizing! Happy New Year!

    Organize my stamps to make it easier to find. 😉 And totally get rid of stamp sets I don’t use.

  185. My kids organized my craft space for me for Christmas! yippie. New Year’s resolution. To make a card (or two) each week using the Monday Mojo layout, I am also updating my ink refills and pads to avoid any sadness if something is on refilled.

  186. I love New Year’s Resolutions and actually look forward to them! So, for my craft room…my resolution is to not feel guilty when I spend hours and hours in there creating! I love to see how others have organized their spaces. Organization is the key to this being a really enjoyable habit 🙂 Looking forward to seeing what 2016 brings!

  187. Definitely, I must tame my stamping supplies as they have taken over my crafting space. It is fun to reorganize. I always find something I forgot I had.

  188. My resolution for the new year is to start my Christmas cards earlier. I made 300 cards in a month and was a little overwhelmed by the time I was finished. I plan to make a few cards each month this next year.

  189. My resolution is to continue to organize my craft space …. it is a work in progress and I love finding new solutions to my ever-growing craft supplies! Happy New Year and thank you for continuing to inspire me on a daily basis with your creations!

  190. I got reorganized last year, so I’m okay there. However, I just got a new, BIG file box for completed cards on hand, so I’m looking forward to creating more cards to have on hand. You know, the type that might just need the perfect words added when I know to whom I’m sending it, but the base card is all done! Love your site, Mary. I check in every day!

  191. Lynn Gauthier

    My goal is to get more paper storage and re-organize my paper.
    Thanks for sharing with us!

  192. I am going to build a stash of Christmas cards all year long. Everything gets so busy once fall hits that I never have enough cards!

  193. I reorganized my craft room last year, but still need to get caught up on my scrapbooks….So that’s my resolution.

  194. In 2016 I plan to reorganize my paper so I know what I’ve got and find what I want easier when I want ‘that paper that I know I have in here somewhere.’

  195. My goal is to purchase more Stamp-N-Storage items! I received the pad holder for Christmas and I love it. My plan is to work on cards a month in advance and Christmas tags completed by October! Thanks for the opportunity to win some great swag!

  196. In 2016 I will catalog my paper so I can use more of what I have, especially DSP. I also will organize my stamps by category. Thanks for sharing your great organizational tips!

  197. My room is organized pretty well but I plan on making even more cards for nursing home residence to GIVE their friends and family

  198. In 2016 my plan is to be on top of things – meaning, my Valentines will be done before February, and the rest of the holidays likewise – done ahead of time. I make about 50 extra (meaning besides for myself) holiday cards that are sent to shut-ins at my church. I think everyone should get some happy mail!

  199. I’m going to go through all my stamp sets to get rid of those I no longer use and offer to trade them with my stamping friends. I’d also like to better organize the drawers I use for my embellishments. Happy stamping in 2016!

  200. With the new year I need to reorganize and I want l to make more cards at one time. My other goal is to learn different methods/techniques in making my cards.

  201. My resolution is to set more time aside for stamping and to use some of the stamp sets I already have.

  202. Finally finish moving my craft space from one room to the other! Love the penguin in this set. Thanks for the chance to win!

  203. I am going to get ALL my stamping stuff sorted and in order in 2016 and am going to work on Christmas cards all year. Every year it gets to Nov. and I’m panicking because I don’t have any made and then don’t have time to get any done and everybody tells me how much they enjoy my homemade cards.

  204. I need to get another bookcase to store my stamps where I can see them and try to organize my scraps as I work instead of tossing them all together in a box. And use the paper I have before buying more. No. Totally kidding on that last one.

  205. I am building a new house and a new craft room ( I hope!). I will be cleaning out and cleaning up!

  206. My plan for 2016 is to make more cards using less frequently used stamp sets. (I’ll start doing that as soon as I organize all of the stamps that I used for Christmas!)

  207. janet gallion

    I want my craft room to look like Mary’s. Watch me on janetgallionyoutube.

  208. Of coarse I already stamp as much as possible but looking forward to doing more in the coming new year

  209. I am making my cards in advance for other people…
    I am usually making them at the last minute!

  210. My goal for the New Year is to finish some of the projects that got set aside. Stop posting so many things from Pinterest & do some of them instead.

  211. My plan for 2016 is to make more cards and to organize my stamps. I love creating cards and tags for friends and family – so, I plan to start my Christmas 2016 “making” much sooner this coming year!!! Love your blog!

  212. Libby – I plan to reorganize my “Happy Room”. Items into longer need will be donated and items I have never used (hard to believe, huh?) will be tried.

  213. My paper crafting resolution for 2016 is to get my cards organized so that when I need one I will be ready to sign and mail it! Thanks for all your inspiration and ideas! Happy New Year!

  214. Mary L Schreiber

    I have a very small craft room so I plan to go through all my stamps and papers and clean out as much as I can. Plan to let my daughter and granddaughter go through what I plan to get rid of and letting them pick what they want and put the rest on a rummage sale. Sounds like a good idea, hopefully I get it done. I need to make room for the new things.

  215. I would like to redo my son’s bedroom now that he’s flown the coop and have the smaller room as the spare bedroom. That would make me sort through all my goodies and get reorganized.

  216. Hi MsMary, first wishing you and your a Happy New Years, and let’s kick it off with a BANG !!!!! Can’t wait to see what the New Years brings !!!!!
    Ok my New Years is to ……
    Participates in more stuff, make more cards, and try to organize my craft room better , and best of all be healthy er, lol,
    MsMary have a wonderful year
    Hugs and love
    Frenchie ,

  217. I am redoing my entire craft room which used to do the craft room and office combined. It’s now going to be ALL mine!

  218. I am going to make cards for all occasions a head of time and leave the inside blank so they are ready when I need one. And i am going to make cards that can be used for several different occasions, leaving the occasion off until I need the card. This way I hope I will not be making cards at the last minute. Have a Peaceful, Healthy, New Year.

  219. I would like to get my craft room organized so I can make a project once a week.

  220. Kathy Hendrey

    Hi, Mary! My stamping resolution for 2016 is to make more cards and get ahead of my schedule. Reorganizing is a work in progress and I would like to get the ink, marker and refill storage from Stamp-n-Storage. It is so much more fun to stamp when I can easily find what I am looking for! Wishing you and yours a Happy New Year!

  221. My husband and I are finishing up my new craft room. I’m organizing, labeling, and purging so that I can be more creative in 2016.

  222. I resolve to use those “must have” stamp sets that have been sitting on my shelf-unused-since I bought them. I have actually started on this resolution and it is so much fun to know that I was right to buy them!

  223. We’ve already started to enlarge my worktop space which is currently a “door” desk by adding a second door-desk making it an L-shaped worktop. Both desks will have shelves supporting them and giving added storage to the storage cubbies on top of desks. Added to that is a vertical container (antique desktop letter holder) to hold the larger scraps of white papers which is already making a difference in time it takes to make a quick card!

  224. I am going to reorganize my stamp/craft room and clear out some clutters. I am going to prioritize the projects I want to accomplish so I have a game plan!

  225. I plan on re-organizing my craft room. Purging is top on my list!! I will be donating some supplies and selling some retired stamps. Next I want to “make ahead” cards and have them ready before hand for birthdays.

  226. Rebecca Massey

    My 2016 craft resolution is to definitely make more cards!! And to share my love of Stampin Up! with more people 🙂

  227. My husband purchased me some of the stamp-n-storage products for Christmas. I hope to get a crafty space organized to make stamping/creating more fun and efficient.

  228. I plan on reorganizing my crafts into one room rather than all the house. I plan on sending cards out for all reasons and mainly “just because”.

  229. Cathy Blanche

    This Christmas my family stayed home instead of road running ! We celebrated my daughter graduating from college in nursing. She and I made cards for several occassions for her to have ready if something comes up. Will miss her like crazy but will be glad to put my craft room back in order when she moves to her new apartment. Happy New Year.

  230. I am going to stay on top of the different kind of cards I need so I’m not trying to do some at the last minute, though I love stamping, I don’t want to hurry to do it. I want to get my Valentine and Christmas cards done early too and just enjoy the fun!!! Happy New Year to you Mary!!

  231. Wendy Richards

    I am going to organize my craft space and make more cards!

  232. Definitely want to get my craft room reorganized in 2016 and make more cards!

  233. I plan to organize and all the crafting supplies I bought for myself this past year and never put away! I got into a very lazy habit and need to get back to my old self!!

  234. patti moffett

    A blessed New Year to you and yours. I resolve to reorganize and purge so I know what I really have and what I really like so I can send more cards. I know I can do this since I love to send cards and organize. A win win!!!

  235. René L. Boward

    Firstly, I plan to clean-up my craft room, as it is in shambles from all my Christmas crafting. Secondly, I plan to box up all my books, give the bookcase to my in-laws, and prepare for a long awaited crafting “hutch” that my brother-in-law is building for me to replace the existing bookcase. Woot woot!!!! Happy New Year, Mary!!

  236. Make more cards ahead of time!

  237. I hope to organize not only by craft space, but my closets too!

  238. I am going to do my best but devoting more time to my web page and videos, and less time coloring (my new addictive habit)

  239. My hope is to definitely clean up the “craftermath” after I’m done crafting each time. I am also resolving to only buy what I absolutely need…I have too much “stuff!”

  240. My resolution is to spend more time making cards with my friends.

  241. I love the Stamp n Storage ink pads, markers and refills storage unit! My goal is to acquire it for my craft room because if I see it, I use it!!! I also want to find more time to spend crafting!

  242. Suzanne Ferlin

    After seeing (and wanting) all of the new products, I will be taking over the rest of the basement!

  243. Shirley Qu-wannabecre8tive

    I bought a new cabinet to put my SU clear stamps in. I plan to re-home some of my older wood stamps. That is about all the reorganizing I will be doing. Thank you for the chance to win your blog candy.

  244. Crystal VanWassenhove

    My goal this next year is to stamp more and to actually send the cards out on time! I would love to be able to afford the Original Scrapbox and have all my supplies in one organized space, it is so awesome.

  245. I am making cards, gift bags, and gift card holders for a youth fundraiser at church so I will be very busy. I plan to better organize my dies for 2016. Hopefully organization will not distract me from creating! Thank you for the opportunity to win!

  246. My resolution is to make more cards of each design when I stamp, so I have some cards on hand when I need one!!!

  247. I plan on giving my craft room a new coat of paint.

  248. I bought a desk and hutch this past summer at a yard sale and finally put it in my craft room. Now, I’m not crafting all over the house. I also want to develop a newsletter. The hardest one, build/increase my customer base.

  249. I need to send more cards!!! I love getting inspiration from your amazing work! Now I just need to put it to good use!
    Thanks for sharing your talents with us and Happy 2016!

  250. My 2016 New Year’s resolution is to combine the new stamp sets and reuse and repurpose those old stamp set items on the back shelf to create several “go to” cards for any occasion.

  251. My 2016 resolution is to weed out the retired stamp sets and DSP so that I can make room for new ones!!

  252. My resolution is to organize my craft room. I have been a SU customer for 25+ years and everything is in baskets from Michaels. It’s time to get it together. I am also undergoing chemo treatment so I want everything to be at my fingertips. Thank you Mary, you are my friend, my inspiration and my creative coach. Love you!

  253. I made my sister in law, who had a very aggressive cancer, cards everyday to cheer her up, and when she passed, I seemed to lose my desire to craft anymore. So, my resolution is to try and get back my love of crafting again….I know that is what she would want for me.

  254. My resolution is to step out of the box and schedule workshops and to get more organized and creative. Thank you Mary for all you do and mostly for your kind spirit.

  255. My crafty resolution is to get all of my supplies better organized in my small space. And to be realistic about what I can keep/use…. If it doesn’t fit it goes, whether
    that means to GoodWill the cute neighbor girls down the street, I need to sort through my things and make the hard choices. Because I know there will be more supplies to buy in 2016 and right now I no way to justify those if the current buys don’t have a home.

  256. Brenda Rozborski

    I’m planning to create and send more cards in 2016. Thanks for your inspiration Mary and a chance to win.

  257. Shannon Bedingfield

    My resolution is to participate (demo) at a stamp camp or other event at least once a month. All to try and get out there more and create more business. Happy New Year to all!

  258. Figure out which re-inkers I need and order them when I need just a few dollars more to get to the next level on an order.

  259. My resolution is to send more cards on a daily basis to friends and to create more!

  260. I’m going to send cards out ON TIME–or better yet, early. My sister Beth does a fabulous job of this–and I want to be just like her!!!

  261. Glenda Lehrmann

    My resolution is to organize my crafts and keep them organized.

  262. I organized my craft room yesterday, so my New Years resolution is to work on some of those projects I found while I was organizing my craft room and to use some of that paper I have been hoarding!!

  263. I’d like to get more creative and do more DIY gifts.

  264. Tanya Kendall

    I will be purchasing the Big Shot Plus, and making more cards and projects.

  265. Corinne Smith

    For the new year, I plan to send more cards!! <3 <3 <3
    I plan to send them to complete strangers, in hospital and in the military. If my cards make my friends and family smile, then they may cheer up a someone who, ight need it!

  266. I received a Big Shot for Christmas and can’t wait to use it. Thanks.

  267. My crafting resolution is to make time to go in my craft room and just experiment, play around. Usually I go in with a project/card I must make for a specific event- I want to make time to create for the sake of creating!!! Mary, your organization tips help to give me time to do just that- thank you. Looking forward to crafting in the new year!!!

  268. Linda Schilling

    I had a cabinet specially made for my Stampin Up crafting supplies last year so my goal is to be more organized – keeping my crafting space neat, make cards ahead of time, etc. Fingers crossed!

  269. Linda Williamson

    To share more cards with those who need a little cheer in their day. Find some local charities who would enjoy sharing cards. Everyone needs to have a little more joy. Thanks Mary for all your awesome inspiration and your humbleness.

  270. For the new year I plan to send more cards I’ve made out to family and friends. I tend to hoard some of the cards. It’s hard to part with some you spend so much time on.
    Happy New Year!!!

  271. Kelly Morrison

    My resolution is to make and SEND more cards. My stash is way too big. I live seeing all of your ideas Mary, Happy New Year.
    Kelly

  272. susan ames fort scott ks

    I want to oraganize my crafts.get a New Big Shot!! ( I wore out my old one, hubby rebuilt it once but its dead now) & Make more cards and send them. My Friends & family miss the Home made ones. ( especially my sister I always make hers backwards on purpose !!!!) I also want to make all the neat stuff I see on FB

  273. Wow, that’s a lot of blog candy!! Would love to add it all to my collection. I am trying to reorganize my craft room. Right now I’d be happy to have a cleared off stamping table to work on. Christmas cards & projects about did me in! I am going to do it in 2016!

  274. I’m very excited about starting the new year as it pertains to paper crafting. I have begun reorganizing my space with hopes of finishing it in January. I plan on making cards/projects a more regular occurrence. Keeping in touch with my friends and family is certainly one resolution I need to do more of. Happy New Year!

  275. I reorganized my stamping space this past year. Now I want to give away cards I’ve made in the past so I can make the new ones I’ve imagined.

  276. I plan on using up my hoarded stash of paper and supplies! I tend to not use my favorite supplies, because I’m afraid others won’t appreciate them 🙂

  277. ORGANIZE & get rid of what I don’t use!!

  278. I hope to plan ahead and make cards so I’m not rushed at the last minute. Happy New Year Mary.

  279. Chris R. from Iowa

    Re-organize? Ummm, I need to be able to at least be able to get into the craft room to start with and then find whatever I need in the certain piles. I do have most of my punches in drawers but there are a couple punches I can’t find. Did I loan them out or are they in a tote bag where I took a project somewhere to work on? Mike bought me a plastic drawer system that should take all my ink pads and be in one place but I have to clear a space for it! Stamp sets are still in numerous areas but I am working on it.

    I did get all my handmade holiday cards out with notes in them. Now, I plan on making a few winter themed cards and some thanks yous to send out. So, I had better get busy. Of course seeing more inspiration from the blogs is a big downfall. I received the cutest card made with the set you are offering in your blog candy, so if I happen to be the lucky winner, I will have to make a card or cards with that set! I do hope I can manage to get birthday cards out more on a timely manner. Man, I think I have my work cut out for me.

    Happy New Year!

  280. My goal this year is to finish organizing my stamps and craft supplies. Also, to send more cards to friends “just because.”

  281. In 2016 I plan on using lots of my DSP stash, getting my Christmas cards completed by December and downsizing some of my stamp sets.

  282. Katherine Anderson

    Oooooh, I think the number one thing I want to accomplish is letting go of some of the things I have come to recognize I won’t be using. I need to move into the “less is more mode”

  283. Karen Prosser

    My resolution is to stay tidy and organized….I have used many of your tips about organizing your craft room in the past….I am lucky enough to have a nice big room with lots of light….so bring on 2016
    Happy New Year Mary….

  284. Mary, you have been my greatest source of inspiration for years now! You are my paper crafting hero!!!

  285. Cassandra Hale

    I’m always trying to improve my stamping area but this year I want to make more cards!

  286. I want to find another organization that accepts cards for charitable purposes.

  287. With a New baby in the house, in what used to be my office/craft room, I plan to reorganize my craft space. And hope to find time to make thank you cards.

  288. Carol Dudding

    My crafting resolution for 2016 is to try and spend time each week to do some type of crafting.

  289. My 2016 Paper Crafting Resolution is to continue to try and tidy and organize my limited space “crafting” corner…and ONCE again strive to get more cards made & sent to those I dearly love and care about. I’m slowly getting the new ink pads & refills to update my colors from too many years ago. I may some day have pads and papers that go together! Alas…another “goal”. lol Love your ideas…and samples. Found you on Pinterest…and just followed the bread crumbs…can you say “AWESOME SAUCE!!!” ? 🙂

  290. Brenda Sisson

    I have been a Mary Fish Groupie since discovering you on the internet. Although I have a demonstrator, and we make great cards and projects. I love the one minute video’s for my go-to inspirations. I’m in the process of re-organizing my Scrap Book Area. Ikea’s 3 tray cart is great for keeping all basic tools at hands reach, plus organizing the project life cards and embellishments. Still looking for the perfect ribbon holder. Any Idea’s? Happy New Year and Happy Crafting.

  291. Mary, thank you so much for all your inspirational ideas and for the opportunity to win! My crafting goals are to finish organizing my craft “room”,to use some of the beautiful things I have already, and last but not least, to schedule more craft time!

  292. We might be moving this year and if so then my goal will be to organize my new space in such a manner that things are easily accessible and easily put away. With or without moving my goal is to get more cards into the mail. I make a ton of cards but mail so few. I’m really terrible about birthdays. I’m also continuing 2015’s goal of using what I have instead of buying new. So many tempting things out there though…!

  293. Every year I start by sorting my paper so I can see what I have and what I need. It is hard to make cards if you are always looking for what you want. Happy New Year, Mary. Thank you for four years of fun with SU and YOU.

  294. I am going to develop the most beautiful birthday card ever and send one to each of my clients this year during their birthday month. Inside I will sign it on a post-it note so they can send it to one of their friends.

  295. I am always reorganizng my craft space. Never get rid of anything so the need to organize is always there. My goal is to keep my space clean “most” of the time.

  296. Jeffalee Hansen

    My craft room always seems to be in disaster mode. I love to make and send cards, but seem to create a mess with each project. 2016 goal is to find better and more accessible ways to store my craft things, and to be more diligent in putting things where they belong. Wish me luck!

  297. For 2016 my craft room will get reorganized I received some new goodies to craft with and I need to make room for them. Plus we are also talking of moving so I really need to get my room in shape
    Thank you for a great year of wonderful idea and looking forward what you will inspire us with in the New Year.

  298. Thomasine Duncan

    Since I retired 3 years ago, I find I am in my workroom most of the day, sometimes crafting but other times just “soaking” up the positive vibes. My 2016 resolution is to better organize and streamline my space, thereby increasing my positivity and productivity. Enjoy following you Mary, keep up the creative inspiration and a safe and healthy New Year!

  299. I always have a need to reorganize….but I think this year, I’d like to share what I am no longer using….either that or buy a bigger house.

  300. Sharron Simmons

    Thank you for the opportunity to win some blog candy. My goal in 2016 is to use the stock I have and continue to make cards for family and friends. Also, hope to organize my “stuff” so I can find what I need when I need it.
    HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY!!!!

  301. I definitely resolve to get better organized and use up what I already have before I buy any more (although the opportunity for some blog candy is always appreciated! :-)). More regularly donating my cards to the local nursing home is another goal.

  302. Thinking of becoming a demonstrator for motivation to use all my supplies more often. 🙂

  303. Resolution 2016 – Start making my occasion (Valentine, Easter etc) cards early. I always think I’ll make them soon and end up doing it last minute. So no procrastination this year 😉 Cheers to the New Year!

  304. You don’t want to see my messy craft room. My New Year’s resolutions is to clean ,clean and more clean.

  305. My crafting resolution for 2016 is to use all of my paper I’ve been holding on to for years. Thank you so much for the chance to win some fabulous blog candy.

    Happy New Year!

  306. So much tof do and not enough time want to revamp my entire crafting space… I just need to clean up other stuff in order to do so

  307. Stella Sieber

    HaPpY New Year’s Eve! A must for me every year is to reorganize and minimize my craft room/guest room. And use the DSP stock I have before purchasing more.

  308. For 2016 there will some very minor reorganization as my craft room just had a major overhaul when we moved last summer. I only have a few things I’d like to change. Thanks for all the inspiration you provide every year. When my mojo disappears, I bring out the file I have of ideas from you and instantly can get back in the swing even if it means only making a few changes to your cards,. You are one talented lady .Have a wonderful New Year.

  309. Defiantly reorganizing my craft room. It may include a lock on the door. My family puts everything they don’t know where it goes in there. I have found HOT CHOCOLATE packets in there. It would be fine if I had access to mugs and hot water . I so enjoy your videos and your knowledge of paper crafting. Thank you for a great 2015 and looking forward to 2016. We are having a wedding in Oct 2016, so if you have any great ideas for shower or wedding decorations, please share. Happy New Year, Mary??

  310. I want to reorganize so I won’t waste so much time looking for supplies. That way, I will have more time to create cards and scrapbook layouts. Happy New Year!

  311. I want to use my old stamp sets more often and start my Christmas cards earlier!!

  312. I’ve always stamped in my dining room, but now that one of my sons has moved out, I’m going to clean out his bedroom and turn it into a stamping room! I can’t wait! Happy New Year and thanks for all your inspiration.

  313. I want to try using my stamps and dies for things other than cards, explore more techniques, and create on different materials from paper and cardstock. Happy New Year, Mary, and thank you for sharing your inspiration with us!

  314. My resolution is to make things for our 2nd annual holiday craft fair all year long.

  315. I want to add more storage cabinets and shelves to my craft area so that I can better organize my supplies. This will enable me to be more creative, instead of spending time wondering what I have, and where.

  316. Organize my supplies and use what I have before stockpiling more!

  317. I plan to finally create a crafting space that i’ve been planning for years. This is the year!

  318. My goal is to catch up on scrapbooking this year. Love your blog and pretty cards!

  319. I’m definitely going to reorganize my craft room. I also want to make more cards this year. Especially cards I can send for no particular reason.

  320. I want to start my box of cards Christmas gifts earlier in the year so I’m not so rushed in November and December.

  321. Miss Mary, my paper crafting resolution is this: I resolve to Organize all of my beloved stamps and stamp sets. I know they’re here somewhere. What a terrific challenge to point us to a positive direction. Thank you!

  322. I would love to organize my punches better and this year I vow to create and send more “just because” cards! I love to receive a nice note and think others will as well!

  323. My husband gave me for Christmas, 2 – three cupboard wall units for my “play room” My room will look great, but I will recognize it!! And anxious to organize it all.

  324. Denise Bryant

    wow… what a fabulous prize! Thanks for the chance to win, Mary!
    I need to get organized! Lots of fun stamping stuff, but it is all mixed up! Need to have like things together instead of all over the place! ,Makes it so hard to locate what I’m searching for…

  325. My New Years resolution is to reorganize my crafting area. I am going to give everything its on place and get everything ready to stamp more and do more creating in 2016 I need to make time to do the thing that I love to do which is stamps. Happy New Year to you and your family.

  326. My resolution is to get more organized! Have been working on it & am seeing such a dideference already. Love, love, love your blog!

  327. I have been diagnosed with breast cancer this year, had a double mastectomy, am now undergoing chemo treatments, and have radiation tonl poker forward to as well as one more surgery…..
    So, my paper crafting goal is to keep up with my designing, my workshops, and my classes. I normally teach at least three times a month and I am determined not to cancel unless I absolutely have to. My ladies are wonderful and have been super supportive, so I think I stand a good chance of getting thru this keeping my little Stampin Up business intact.
    It is always my goal to bring more ladies I to my little group and maybe get a downline or 7 (tee hee)
    Tonna

  328. I hope to finish all of the scrapbooks that have Journaling pages left to do. And to go thru my stamps and gift/sell the ones I don’t use.

  329. Wow, Mary, thank you for the chance at your awesome blog candy. My papercrafting resolution for 2016 is the same as it was for 2015 – distill what I have (and buy) so I use what I have, not hoard it or just store it. I’m very organized, it’s the quantity that I have to reduce. In 2015 I gifted my daughters-in-law and granddaughters with some of my less loved (but not less creative) supplies so they could start their own papercrafting happiness. And when I purchased something new (because after all, there are always new stamps or dies that give you a happy dance), I ‘retired’ something old (and sometimes two or three somethings LOL). Happy New Year to you and yours.

  330. My New Years plan is to organize my craft room and purge all the older things that I don’t use.

  331. 2016 is the year to continue, and finish, the craft room re-organization. And, yes, it is time to finally buy the Big Shot!

  332. My stamping supplies are somewhat organized. I need to get rid of the junk in my craft room and develop better storage for my stamp sets. I have been hording DSP and over the summer I decided I needed to use it and reduce my stash. I have made some progress but need to continue. Thanks for the opportunity to win some blog candy.

  333. Thanks for getting me going! I love all your projects. You definitely inspire me! I’m going to do 2 things to get things movin’ around here:1) SEND MORE CARDS ( I love making them and people enjoy receiving them); 2) Push myself to purge some of the old stamps to make room for the new. Happy New Year!

  334. My goal is to send a birthday card to everyone in my family this year. That includes all 35 nieces and nephews!

  335. I have already started organizing my paper crafting space (getting a head start) and I will create at least one card a weekday during 2016. I love my Big Shot and use it frequently! Thanks for your wonderful posts. I didn’t get the reindeer paper clips and desperately need them!

  336. I’ll be having fun making numerous card designs from one stamp/die set!! It’s fun being creative and having a hobby I love and I love my demonstrator, Peggy!!

  337. My goal for 2016 is to make cards ahead of time and not wait until the day of to make.

  338. I could create a whole list of just crafting resolutions, but the one that immediately jumps to the top is to “use from my stash.” Doing that would probably also help me keep several of the other resolutions on that list! (Like sending more cards, trying some new techniques and making more gifts to have on hand.)

  339. My 2016 goal is to organize my crafting space which is shared as a sewing room. It’s so unorganized now I haven’t been able to do much or either, but with 2 new grandbabies in the last 6 months, I need to be able to work on things. Keep up your wonderful webpage. Love your ideas.

  340. I so enjoy your daily posts. In 2016 my goal is to stop hoarding all the cads I make and either give them away or send more snail mail.

  341. I have already purged my stampin room , right after taking down the tree, and now am hoping to make a lot of cards ( while all of the football games are on tv) . I can’t wait to get started.

  342. My resolutions are to organize my craft space (it’s a total nightmare) and to make and send more cards! Once I organize my craft space, making more cards should be easy! I also want to schedule crafting time every week. The blog candy looks awesome and I love your blog and all the great inspiration you share!

  343. Wow, amazing and generous blog candy Mary! I hope to participate in more card challenges in 2016. I suspect I will also need to reorganize my craft space as I am running out of space to house my stamp sets.

  344. I’m planning on sorting out the older stamp sets that I’m not using and giving them to a local charity for their craft supplies.

  345. My resolution is:
    1. Clean up my craft room. It looks like Santa’s elves had too much merry in there!
    2. Put a specific time/date on my calendar for making cards. I am an empty nester so you would think I have all sorts of time, but it does get away from me.
    3. Create 5 simple cards per week for our church bc they LOVE sending them to shut-ins and as thank yous. Last year they went through 30 cards in 2 weeks! I told them I may not be able to do 15 per week, but 5 seemed doable.
    4. Although I am a committed hobbyist, I love teaching. I want to contact the 4 active living retirement homes in our area to see if they would allow me to teach a class every other month. I can only take 6 people per class as I have found that is the max that works for me. I usually offer 4 cards for $10 and that includes envelope and plastic liner. My goal is for them to pay me a set amount from their activity budget versus per person. I have broken out all my costs including time and travel, etc so we will see. If you never ask, you never know!

  346. I hope to make cards ahead for the holidays. That way I can take my time with all the ideas I get from you. I sure can get lost in my craft room making card. Thanks for a chance to win the candy blog. Looking forward to a year of great ideas from you.

  347. Love your blog! Hope to reorganize my craft space and maybe down purge some. Keep sharing, love your videos.

  348. I resolve to use up my stash of DSP! I buy it, hoard it and admire it, but rarely USE it! LOL Thanks for a great giveaway – and happy new year!

  349. My husband put new cabinets in my craft room! So now I need to unload boxes and organize! Out with the old, and in with the new!

  350. I hope to get a Big Shot this year to replace my Cuttlebug! 🙂

  351. I have my craft room in my dining room (which otherwise doesn’t get used). I keep the overflow in the basement. I try to keep up in the dining room what I use the most so I need to reorganize so that what I use most is at my fingertips. Also, I plan on inviting more people to my house to show them how to make cards. I have to say, this is soooo uplifting for people! They think they can’t do it, but when they see they can & how beautiful they are, they are so proud of themselves! I use this hobby to brighten people’s lives — it’s fun for both me & them!

  352. My 2016 resolution is to get my paper crafts organized and in a orderly system so I can find what I need quickly. Punches here, dies there, stamps everywhere, when I start a project, it sometimes takes me longer to find all the tools I need then it does to do the project. This has got to STOP. “Organized” and “simplified” are the 2016 buzzwords for my craft room. Thank you for the opportunity to win such great blog candy. Happy New Year!

  353. We hope to finish a guesthouse/craft space early in 2016. These items would fit right in. Thanks for the offer!

  354. Danielle Dietz

    My craft room is full of wonderful products that I already have organized. My husband insists I buy just to organize! I love organizing. My resolution is to actually USE my stuff to send out lots of cards in 2016!

  355. Organize and clean out my craft room

  356. I vow to USE some of the supplies I have been hoarding for awhile! And keep organizing in 2016. Happy New Year?

  357. I really hope to get my craft room more organized in 2016. I even asked for and received a few pieces of Stamp n Storage. I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

  358. My goals for 2016 would be to finish projects already started; use supplies I have so I will have room for all the new stuff; and I want to get a Big Shot this year (to go with all the different items I’ve purchased for it.) There is so much more but I’ll take it in steps.

  359. When I sit to stamp, I set out to make three of the exact same cards, but I always get distracted! I end up changing the card styles, organizing paper, and find myself ending up without the original three cards I intended to make. This may sound fine, but I end up taking a couple of hours for only a handful of cards (not very profitable, when breaking it down to an hourly wage). With a new baby, this also means that there are unfinished cards sitting on an uncleared table. I resolve to being “quicker” and letting go of the need to be a perfectionist (though that second one will never happen!) I’d settle for being a faster worker.

  360. Hi Mary,
    In 2015 I. Worked on organizing my craft room. Now in 2016, I need to enjoy my space, create some awesome cards, and let my creativity take over!! My big purchase for 2016 is definitely going to be a Big Shot! I am fascinated by the things you can do with the Big Shot!!! Hope you have an awesome 2016 and thanks for everything you do to inspire us!!!

  361. I want to create a new craft space and enjoy a more organized play area.
    Happy New Year!

  362. I am coloring phobe! For 2016, I am determined to watercolor using my blendies, Aqua painters and markers. I would love to see Stampin’ Up! partner with Copic or produce another line of alcohol markers. Mary these are such a great blog candy prizes! Thanks and Happy New Year to you and Kris too!

  363. Sheryl Cushman

    My hope is to get more into my Stampin’ as a business and not just a hobby. Love to make cards, just not into all the scrapbooking and other aspects of the Stampin’ program. Hope to be more knowledgable about the products. May you all have a wonderful New Year.

  364. I going to reorganize my craft room. It needs it. If my family can’t figure out where something goes they put it in my craft room. Need to change this. Happy New Year.

  365. I hope to get more organized and practice a lot more coloring with my Copic markers.

  366. This year I’m going to let go of some stamp sets that I’ve been holding onto for a long time. My craft space is small, so I need to make room for new sets. It’s hard for me to let go – I love all the stamps, but it is time!

  367. Susan Wohlfert

    My plans are to organize my stamping supplies into one room instead of two and to stop hoarding my cards.

  368. I love your blog love your posted cards too. Thank you

  369. HI! I plan to send the cards I make:) I have really good intentions every year to send to family and friends then end up keeping the ones I make and sending store bought:/ now I have too many shoe boxes full…..keep you posted 1st b-day is 1-13..

  370. This year I plan to SEND more cards out! It’s such a fun thing to open your mailbox & see a handmade card from a friend!

  371. My 2016 Papercrafting Resolution is to make and send cards for All family birthdays and special occasions. I also resolve to spend more time scrapbooking.

  372. My hope and wish is to finally finish the craft room reorganization that keeps getting interrupted by health issues!! So body let us work together for a few months! Thanks for a chance to win this awesome blog candy. Wishing you a healthy and happy new year.

  373. Carolyn Curtis

    For the past several years I have made Christmas tags for the gifts I give. This year I ran out of time and didn’t get them done. My oldest son got his gifts without handmade tags and promptly got his out from last Christmas and reused them for the gifts he sent to me and my husband. I decided my goal would be to make tags for next Christmas in January!

  374. My goal is to find more students for my classes who will, hopefully, turn in to customers.

  375. I keep try to organize my craft room. Mary your room gives me such hope and wonderful ideas. I also an glad I found out about Stamp N Storage. They help a great deal with easy organization. They more thing I acquire the more room I have to find.

  376. Terry Dell'Amico

    May God richly bless you and yours this New Year! I am planning on becoming a SU Demo this year. I’m having a wonderful time making cards and am starting to feel comfortable in doing them. My husband is helping me to set up one of our bedrooms into a crafting room and then the next step will be ordering my $99 kit. Sooooooo excited. Thank you for all the wonderful ideas you send our way!

  377. What a great influence you have had on my creations! I resolve to reach a place where I can create cards that have the “Fish & King” influence but a signature “Rice” result.

  378. What a great giveaway! Thanks!!!!! Mine is simple, get cards out timely! Added into that, make more cards for others and stop hoarding the ones that I do make lol

  379. My goal is to better organize my crafting space. I have so many stamps and accessories that I do not use because I do not see them. Hopefully I will achieve some of my goal. If not I should consider if i need to stop ordering new things until I use my growing supplies.

  380. Awesome blog candy! For 2016 I want blog at least once a month. It’s time to put more time and energy in to something I’ve grown to love so much!

  381. Peggy Mullenaux

    My hope is to make cards for the Ronald McDonald House this year, put my supplies away in a timely manner, try new ideas and just have fun crafting.

  382. I need to get my craft room organized and get cards made ahead of the time I need them. Thanks for the chance to win.

  383. Hi Mary, I have plans to organize my ribbon and punches. Happy New Years!

  384. I plan to organize my stamping things a little more and to stamp more!

  385. Definitely need to organize my craft room! I will continue to make cards!

  386. My resolution is to definitely spend more time to making cards and papercrafting. I am already in the middle of reorganizing my craft room (again!) Thank you for the StampnStorage link – the products are marvelous! Happy New Year!

  387. My crafting resolution is to SEND more cards!!!! And my craft room is always in the process of reorganization.

  388. I plan to make sure I make cards well ahead of time for my family members and friends birthdays as there are quite a few… aswell as the holidays that approach upon us. p.s. love your cards!

  389. Diana Crawford

    I like to CASE all those beautiful cards out there but need to get my own creativity going, so I’m going to participate in some challenges this year, especially the Pals!

  390. I plan to keep a supply of cards on hand at all times, and to better organize my space. Happy New Year!

  391. My goal is to get my stamps organized by style (flowers, masculine, Christmas, etc…..). I have bought colored dots to put on the cases in order to do this. Note to self: must get this done!

  392. What a fun giveaway. I’m new to card making and a friend told me about you. I look forward to buying more supplies and learning how to use them.

  393. My plan for crafting in the New Year is to get organized!! I also plan to schedule time on my calendar in my craft room dedicated to card making so I have a supply of handmade cards ready for any occasion!!

  394. I plan to keep clean up my stamping space and file my stamps in a notebook.

  395. My plan for the New Year is to send more cards to the people I know and love.

  396. I am going to send more cards! I make lots of fun cards. And even give them as bundled gifts. But I’m terrible about just sitting down and writing (then mailing) cards. And who doesn’t LOVE getting unexpected mail. This is the year I do better!

  397. Oh my gosh Mary, 2016 is the year I am going to start creating more cards. My space is beautiful, now I have to make it happen!!! Thanks and have a wonderfully creative 2016!!!

  398. Will continue my craft space reorganization in 2016. The great examples on your website are inspiring.

  399. That penguin is simply adorable! I have a couple of resolutions: Mainly, “do more, stockpile less”. HA Also, I used to make cards to donate for Operation Write Home – since they have ceased operations I need to find a new charity who needs donations. Lastly, sort through and use up the large box of “scraps” – make tags, use for cards, use for scrapbooking, etc. – probably the most challenging resolution for me, for sure! Have a very happy 2016!

  400. I resolve to start my Christmas cards before November! I still have a couple to finish and send out…

  401. My 2016 resolution will be to DO – more stamping & paper crafting. I have quite the collection, but now to use it up. Using it up might be an exaggeration … my goal is to make a significant dent in things (LOL!).

  402. My resolution is to send more birthday cards instead of just saying “Happy Birthday!” on Facebook. My husband is the youngest of 7 and I am the youngest of 3 so we have plenty of family birthdays in addition to friends! Love your blog, Mary! Happy 2016!

  403. My resolution is to send out more birthday cards and to begin making use of the supplies that I have rather than going out and buying more that will just sit on a shelf.

  404. I resolve that when I create a card I love to make a bunch so I have them on hand for time crunch needs!

  405. I plan to reorganize my craft space to I can find things better to do more stamping and cardmaking. Happy New Year!

  406. continuing to recorganize my craft space(s)!!! happy new year!

  407. Planning to reorganize my craft room to make more room for the new stuff. Happy New Year !!

  408. 2015 was about organization for me and I took your inspiration and Stampin Storage along with Ikea and created my lovely space. This year is all about cards, cards and more cards! Happy New Year!!

  409. Thanks for the chance to win! My resolution to to find some time to really get into crafting once again. I haven’t made much in recent months and I’m really missing it. I’d like to organize my supplies in a better way so starting a scrap page or card doesn’t take so long to start!

  410. Hi Mary …..my resolution for the new year is to organize my supplies so they are easier to use AND then set aside time each week to actually craft, instead of waiting for a need then throwing a card together! Thanks for all our support!

  411. We will be moving into our new house in 2016 so I will have a new stamping space to make a lot more homemade cards.

  412. Looking for a way to organize my embossing folders and die cuts, throwing them in a drawer is just not working! Happy New Year!

  413. Yes, my craft room will be organized this year. I want a space so I can create something and not have to take time from doing that to find everything I need to create my something.

  414. Eileen McClean

    Wow, such excellent blog candy, thanks for the opportunity to win. For 2016 I am going to challenge myself to try new techniques and different folds of cards, to take myself out of my comfort zone. Thanks

  415. Did some organizing of my stamping space this year thanks to IKEA. My goal is to learn the best way to mass produce cards. I also want to make cards ahead of different needs so I have hem on hand. Happy New Year! ???

  416. Organizing my craft room is a must. Deciding on what to keep & what to give away is going to be so tough!

  417. My resolution is two part. My craft room has been unavailable for almost 9 months while we renovate our home, so since that is almost complete, I will be spending time and reorganizing that space. I also just had my 11th grandchild so I will be making more cards for all of my grandchildren.

  418. I resolve to send out more cards. For a couple years now I’ve made them & loved them and, too often, hate to part with them! 2016 is the year! These beautiful cards need to find new homes with my loved ones for their special occasion(s). After all, I can always make new ones!

  419. I am a procraftinator (new word LOL) putting off clearing my card making space! Starting 2016 I will be more organized. I do use my Big Shot that I won from Sizzix and I love it and will find a way to store the dies neatly! I do mail out cards even though! Thanks for the chance to win your fantastic blog candy!

  420. Gina Gearhart

    In 2016 I will stamp more & send more! And stop hoarding craft goodies & use them up!!

  421. My 2016 resolution is to send cards each week to me nieces and nephews at college and on mission. I already send one each week to my daughter at college, but the others need love too!

  422. My 2016 paper crafting resolution begins with a huge reorganization of my chaotic craft room and purging of unused items which absolutely stifles any creativity at all. Hopefully this will be followed by a nice, clean, well organized space where I can once again find my Creative Muse and make cards again for family and friends, something which brings me great joy. I’ve missed it!

  423. My resolution is to get my room more organized so I can easily create my cards. I plan to clean up after each use of my room. It’s a shame I have such a nice room and yet it’s not as inviting as it should be because it’s not tidy!

    BTW – you are so inspirational and provide such good ideas. Thanks for all you do – and share!!

  424. I hope my brother can get my desk and drawers built so I can get all my supplies and stamps organized and have a nice neat creative work area.

  425. Kathy Johnson

    My resolution is to send a handwritten note to someone once a week. On a handmade card, of course! Sunday will be the day I sit down, choose a friend or family member (near or far) and spend a few minutes keeping in touch.

  426. Organize my craft room more so I can find things easier and be more productive in making more cards and projects. 🙂

  427. Resolution is to organize my mess of a craft room. Gotta get it under control

  428. Organize what I have! And maybe buy the new tea stamp set!

  429. Reorganize, reorganize, reorganize!!!! and of course, make more cards!!!!

  430. I have made a commitment to finish my craft room that I started in April of this year. I changed my room around, painted it but never FINALIZED it and now I am going to finish and REORGANIZE my craft room so I can enjoy all the SU products and be creative and do what I love doing, making cards/projects and enjoying my new space!!!

  431. I’m going to put money aside to “finally” get a big shot. It seems to enhance so many projects. I’d love to get more organized and more productive. Thanks for this opportunity.

  432. Organization really helps creativity so I will continue to organize my stamps and dies to make it easier to locate the ones I want to work with. I have “shared” some of my old stamps with friends and am looking to doing more of the same to make room for the stamps and dies in the new catalogs! I also want to start making Valentine cards and other holiday cards early so I’m not so pressured when the holiday is close.

  433. OMG, just started going through my craft room! Yikes I have so much that I need to get rid of! After doing this for 27 + years, it’s time! Vicki

  434. I’m planning to send more cards this year, and to get them out on time. My husband teases me all the time because “the card lady” is always late getting cards into the mail.

  435. My craft room is so full…my husband is afraid to go in there, I will be taking the sofa-sleeper out of that room and adding more shelves with some stamp-n-storage units. Can’t wait.

  436. Mary Ellen Mayer

    I resolve to use the stamps and equipment I haven’t opened yet! Make more cards, get creative!

  437. It’s time to get rid of the old and bring in the new!

  438. I am going to make 6 cards at a time so I always have some in reserve!!

  439. My 2016 RESOLUTION for crafting is to make birthday cards for every family member. With 10 siblings all married and most with a house full of kids or married nieces and nephews this is a HUGE challenge. Also, I plan on only buying from Stampin Up catalogs instead of all the others; because they all offer about the same designs it’s just that storing so many different companies together just looks messy to me. And since it’s easy order on line and easier to keep up with what I’ve ordered, I’m hoping not to duplicate items as I have done (way to many times in 2014, 2015), in the past. I don’t mind giving them to my sister, but I’d like to save that money to buy more accessories for us both. TY4S, Pat

  440. My Resolution is to make more cards!!! I just organized so now it’s getting down to business

  441. I usually stamp 3-D projects with treats in them. This year I’d like to focus more on card making.

  442. Nancy Farrell

    Hi Mary, what a great blog candy! I would love to make at least two cards every time I make a card. I am tired of rushing to make a card at the very last minute. 🙂

  443. To finally!!! finish my conversion of all my wood block stamps to cling!! Thanks for all the great inspiration this year!!

  444. I’m planning to be more proactive and make cards well in advance of of the occasion….especially Christmas cards for 2016!!

  445. Trudy Davidson

    Since losing my job this past June, my resolution has been to craft using my stock of craft supplies before adding more to the collection. I have also been using the time between job searching to organize my supplies so I can take advantage of all my different punches and embossing folders which I seen to forget I owned. I will continue with this in the new year. I am in love with the snow place stamp set and snow friends framelits. When I am working again it will be a set I will be purchasing. Thank you Mary for all your wonderful ideas and posts. Look forward to everyday to your post and create thoughts and ideas. Happy New Year!!!

  446. What a lovely giveaway!! my resolution is to try and use all the paper i have. I will make more cards, learn to put die cuts to use and hopefully dwindle down my paper so I’m not drowning in it 🙂 happy new year!!!

  447. A wonderful give away! I have already started my organization project. I just hate it when i cannot find something I know I have. I spend so much time looking, then I get frustrated. SO, time to organize and purge. Whew, more time to create.

  448. What an amazing giveaway! My resolution is do actually make time to craft more. The last few years I have worked to save to buy a house (was successful)! Now to fix up the basement and hold classes again! Hugs and Happy New Year!

  449. REORGANIZING my craft room. I had to shift & clean before I could even do things for Christmas and now the spell is on me! I am in the mood.

  450. Pamela Lynden

    Get rid of my old ragged ink pads and buy new ones.

  451. I want to spend more time crafting – making all those cards I’ve pinned and getting caught up on my scrapbooking – love Project Life!! Thanks for the great give-always – Happy New Year!!

  452. Happy New Year to you and your family Mary. I have many crafting goals for 2016 and with the wonderful inspiration from you and many other wonderful crafters I feel good about my success rate. I want to accomplish the following: move and organize my crafting area, purchase some products from Stamp-n-Storage, work on my coloring skills more, use older stamp sets, send cards to friends and family throughout the year just to put a smile on their face, make cards every week, get more of my craft inventory catalog done, and the list kinda goes on, lol. I’m sure this coming year will be full of new stamps and dies that will inspire me to make beautiful cards and I look forward to seeing where this wonderful journey takes me next. Thanks for the chance to enter the giveaway.

  453. I reorganized and painted my craft room Pool Party this year. Now for 2016 my goal is keep it organized to spur my creativity to make more cards. I have lots of crafting goals and ideas for crafting projects. I hope some of them come to fruition. Your blog candy would be a great addition to my stash of supplies.

  454. I am finishing up with the reorganization of my craft room 10 months ago. I’m so excited to finally know where everything is and have everything at my fingertips so I can spend more time creating!

  455. I need to reorganize my craft room and then play more with all the crafting goodies I have and try to make more cards that are MY creations, not copies.

  456. As soon as Joanna Gaines’ paints are available I am painting my studio. And then the rest of the house. We’ve been here three years and I never replaced the gray and yellow combination I had in Kerrville.

  457. Janet Swofford

    I want to start an Esty shop to help support my habit,I mean craft! 😀 Thanks for the chance to win the awesome blog candy!!!

  460. My goal is to create new ribbon storage, and use more dsp when creating cards.

  461. My crafting resolution (or “revolution”, as my kids say!) is to use up my old DSP!

  462. Happy New Year, Mary! Thanks for the chance to win the darling stamps and dies!
    I started organizing my craft area last summer. With the help of my husband, we pulled everything out, re-painted, and he re-designed the shelves. There’s still lots more to do, so my goal is to finish up this year. I’m so looking forward to getting everything put in it’s place!

  463. I plan to make more cards ahead of time! I’m always needing more!

  464. My resolution is to color more and try new fun techniques!!! Thanks for all your fun inspiration this past year!!! Happy New Year to you!

  465. My plan is to organize my craft room and desk top.

  466. Happy New Year ! Resolved to keep things put back in their places so I can reach for them when I need !! Finally cleared out the stuff in the craft room that didn’t belong (well except for the hats !) but it is almost in working order and I resolve to MAKE more of the “ideas” in addition to just finding them !! My garden club gals will be happy with birthday cards galore !! Many thanks for all your ideas to keep us all going !

  467. My resolution for 2016 is to organize my paper crafting supplies with new cabinets and a place for everything and all the different paper crafts I enjoy including card making and scrapbooking.

  468. I plan to organize my paper so I can make lots of cards and get back to scrapbooking.

  469. I want to clean and reorganize my “disaster room” to make it a cozy crafting space- have plenty of stuff, just need room to spread out and work!

  470. I am a pretty organized person…..I hope to get a head start on my Christmas Cards, etc, so that there is not a rush at the end.

  471. Yes I am going to go through all my paper and give away all the old stuff! It will give me lots of room for all the new paper!

  472. This year I will have a crafting space all my own! I’ll finally get to be organized!

  473. Find space for nore Designer series papet!

  474. I will be pro-active and start Christmas projects in February. That’s when there is snow on the ground in MD and it will inspire me

  475. Yes, I need to get organized. I have a work space that I pile up everything, leaving myself a 12×12 work area. Then I get frustrated with all of my piles.

  476. I am going to make paper packs with all of my extra scrapbook paper. Then I will be ready to do 2 page layouts.

  477. Delilah Brooks

    I plan to start my Christmas cards in June. Since I make 88 of them and might choose to color on them, I need that extra time. Because we live on a farm, I used and colored the stamp “From the Herd” this last year. I got them made but with no time to spare. Also let me say that I love all of your cards and appreciate all that you do as my demonstrator!!!

  478. Hi, Mary: thanks, as always, for your wonderful inspiration. I’ve decided to get started on next year’s Christmas cards right away in January 2016. I got a little behind this year because our stamping group made over 1,000 cards to give to the local Meals on Wheels program. I had so much fun with that project, I plan to get going right away for next year’s give-away! Happy New Year to you and yours.

  479. Hello Mary. Looking forward to your videos and 2 minutes videos as well. Just love all your cards you share. Have a super 2016! Love your giveaway! Snowman is my best. Thank you and have a great day!

  480. What get organized? It would be wonderful to do so, but…….
    Oh well, someday…. I’ll just enjoy being creative in my messy, messy world!
    Happy 2016!

  481. I have already started my ornaments that I give my friends. This year I made Santa Claus ornaments from clear glass ornaments and used Real Red ink and red glitter for the inside. A black belt and rhinestone buckle. This 2016 ornament is going to be a reindeer with soft suede ink and brown glitter inside.

  482. I resolve to reorganize my card stock.

  483. Eleanor Slade

    Moving to a new home, organizing a new stamping area!

  484. Definitely finding a place for the stacks of partially finished projects I keep moving around from place to place.

  486. Organize and have fun crafting, Happy 2016

  487. My resolution is to take a photo of EVERYTHING I make for my own benefit, and to post the best more consistently. Thank you for the opportunity to receive blog candy and a happy, happy New Year to you and your family.

  488. I have a few resolutions: Use my stash! Organize my stash! Clean up after myself! Have a safe, happy New Year!

  489. The new year always brings hope for a better year than the one before. This year I plan to eat better, craft more and of course try to loose weight.

  490. Micheline Lueken

    I’m hoping I’ll get a lot more stamping done. When I have a plan it is so relaxing.

  491. Love your 1 minute to wow videos, and this year I found organizing all the supplies (most all of them) for a card (s) before I actually began the project helped since my crafting space is not so organized !
    Organizing definitely helps my mindset and creativity!

  492. I need to organize my craft room. I can’t find anything!!!!!

  493. I will finish at least 3 – 2 page layouts each week….so I can finish my 46 year old son’s album!!

  498. My 93 year old mother and I will be moving to a smaller but safer house in 2016 therefore I will be doing a total reorganization and brand new craft room. I am excited and overwhelmed about this but my One Little Word that I chose for 2016 is persevere so that’s what I will do.

  499. I plan to complete my projects before starting another!!

  500. My goal is to create a stash of cards so that I can easily and quickly send out a card when needed instead of scrambling to make a card quickly. I also want to get more cards out throughout the year to members in our church who are shut-ins.

  501. I plan on doing major organization & sending out more cards in the coming year! Thanks for the chance to win!

  502. Happy new year! I plan on making more time to get into my craft studio to enjoy being creative and making more cards in 2016.
    Thank you for the opportunity to win fun products.

  503. I plan on organizing my craft room and start on 2016 Christmas cards soon!

  504. I plan on taking time for more card making .. have not been able to do much this year and I miss it.

  505. My resolution is to give more of the cards that I make. I put so much love and creativity into my cards and then half of the time I forget to send them out! We’re also moving later this year and I FINALLY get my very own craft room, so I really need to get more organized!

  506. I want to introduce more of my friends to card making this year.

  507. I resolve to get my desk organized, and find a better way to store my stamps and accessories so I don’t spend more time looking for things than doing what I love to do :-).

  510. Adrienne Peach

  511. Nancy Kierzek

  512. I will most definitely get my room organized and get back to making cards and gift tags. Happy New Year to you Mary. ?????

  513. Being recently retired, I look forward to having more creative fun! I know you just can’t go wrong when you’re creating cards with StampinUp products!!

  514. My resolution is to create and send more cards for encouragement and thank yous.

  515. My resolution for 2016 is to get back into my craft room to reorganize and spend more time crafting.

  516. Mary, this is a great question! As always I hope to get better organized and use the paper and supplies I already have. I’ve been doing paper crafts for many years and have accumulated a lot of scrapbook paper and card stock. Thank you for the chance to win, I love the Penguin in this stamp set. Happy New Year to you and your family. I look forward to 2016 and reading your blog.

  517. I am going to SEND cards.

  518. ??Happy New Year Mary??
    Create and send more cards!

  519. My resolutions for 2016 are to stop hoarding and get rid of retired products–; get as many die cuts as possibe for my Big Shot (!), and most importantly…figure out how to stamp after 10 years without getting ink all over my hands–How do y’all DO this in those videos? 🙂

  520. I will open and use the last few stamp sets I bought – so I can get more for Sale a bration. I want to make more than one card when I make them so I can share or donate. This year I packed up bundles of cards (trying not to hoard the ones I loved) and was amazed at how much people enjoyed that little gift. Hoping to donate more this year. M

  521. Organize my craft room and do a lot more scrapbooking in 2016

  522. Getting organized! Oh but how easy it is to become disorganized.

  523. I would like to organize my craft room so that my tools and supplies are accessible.

  524. I would like to make and send more cards, and get my blog up and running!

  525. Denise Ferguson

    I resolve to have extra cards on hand by making more than one when I’m making a card. Too many times I have needed a card & had to whip up a less than stellar card 🙁 I would also like to dedicate more space to my stamping supplies.

  526. Reta Mahlstede

    My paper goal is to create more cards…and mail them to family and friends!

  527. My New Year’s Goal is during the month of January, I will create and prepare for mailing each card that I plan to send in 2016. (not Christmas cards) Why make cards if I never send them to family and friends on time or at all? I also plan to purge extra supplies that I no longer need and donate them to a cause that can make good use of them. 😉 Thanks for the blog candy, mary!

  528. I resolve to spend more time in my craft room “doing what makes me happy!” I also resolve to set an alarm when I’m in there so I don’t forget to make dinner for the hubs! It’s happened more times than I care to admit! Thanks for the chance to win candy. Happy New Year!

  529. My craft resolution is to clean up the year’s worth of debris and clutter that has accumulated in my craft space, and return my creativity zone to organized bliss! I resolve to gather the growing piles of cards used to de-stress, and donate them to local nursing homes and retirement centers. And, finally— to not miss any birthdays or anniversaries of FAMILY members with a card made by me…Thanks for the blog gift opportunity, Mary! Happy New Year!!

  530. My card resolution is to set alarms to have my birthday cards ready to go. No rushing, or last minute creations.

  531. Wanda Reynolds

    I do not have a resolution. I just go with each day as I see what is needed in my happy place and just roll with it!

  532. I like a lot of other demonstrators plan on de-cluttering and getting my craft room more organized, use and replace to the correct storage space and just to have everything organized so that I can create in a more relaxed space.

  533. With new SU items to be ordered I will need to clean out and reorganize some of my craft room. The U.S. postal service loves my mailing of many cards so I might just add a few more, hopefully cherry ones, I love this stamp set, but don’t own it, so cross my fingers.

  534. I really want to clean out my craft area and donate some underused and unused crafts supplies to a youth group or our school. I want to refocus my energy and get more meaningful scrapbooking done…with more journaling. Thanks for the chance. Glad I found your blog while looking for info on the “new” in-colors.

  535. Looking forward to getting together with my friends and making cards once a week.

  536. Getting rid of all the stuff that I have not used in years….so that I have a space for all of my new stuff!!!

  537. Vicky Blackwell

    I WILL reorganize my craft space and I WILL send more cards in 2016!!!! Repeat, Repeat, Repeat

  538. I’m going to join Stampin up as a demonstrator and share my love of Stampin up products with my crafting friends.

  539. I love your blog. Thanks so much for sharing!

  540. I definitely want to play more this year. Work, and life in general, is always so busy. I look forward to spending more time making cards. It is my creative outlet that I’ve not been in touch with and desperately feel the need for. I always love the Stampin Up ideas you feature and have so many of them saved “to do” someday. This is my year! This is my someday!!!

  541. I hope to send more cards and clear off my crafting table top. I have a large table, but find I hang onto bits and bobbles from cards I have finished. Also, I would like to find a place to donate some of my finished cards.

  542. My resolution is to get my card stock organized!

  543. Happy New Year !
    Yes I am working on my craft room this year. Seems I am always working on my room. In fact that is my plan for today ! I am determined to clear my desk and empty my bags from a recent crop and get them back into their homes.
    I am itching to play but can not work in chaos !
    Lets see how this goes 🙂

  544. New Year’s goals include organizing my stamp sets, especially the sayings! I would like to index all of the different greetings so I can choose the the correct size and font for each project. Thanks Mary for all of your inspiration!!

  545. Yep! I need to do an overhaul on my craft room – it’s just not working for me the way I want it to:-(. Thank you so much for all of the inspiration you provide! Happy New Year!!

  546. I need to overhaul my craft room. I don’t have enough work space. I’m hoping to add some type of table top or desk as I usually need to spread out when I’m working.

  547. CM2. (Ann Larrick)

    My resolution task is 2-fold. I need to continue working on organizing & labeling crafting supplies for ease & speed in locating them. I also want to accrue a larger stash of cards to use with our church card ministry. There are times when our pastor can be last minute in his request and I want to have more cards on hand so I don’t have to rush to get one in the mail.

  548. My 2016 Resolution is to get ahead of my card-making needs and have a bunch of cards made and ready for the ocassion.

  549. In 2016 I want to get back to making cards on a regular basis. Last year I only made a card when I needed it or just pulled one from my stash. Time to get creative!!

  550. My resolution is to do more art journaling.

  551. Definitely plan to reorganize my crafting space so I can be more productive and use lots of my Stampin Up goodies!!!!

  552. I make goals not resolutions. 🙂 One of my goals for 2016 is to do more of what makes me happy! Of course making cards bring me much happiness! Thanks for the chance and Happy New Year!

  553. I hope to keep my craft room more organized-also am planning on making a real effort to use up old stuff like retired paper!

  554. Kathy (cards_by_kp)

    My paper-crafting resolution is to finish the scrapbooks I started making for my nieces and nephew. Thanks, Mary, for the opportunity to win some fabulous blog candy.

    Wishing you and your family a New Year filled with health, happiness, peace and love! Prosit Neu Jahr!

  555. Maureen Albert

    Happy New Year. My 2016 reorganization is for my ribbon. I have a lot, and it needs some love.

  556. Maria Andreina Socorro

    Happy New Year! So glad I read this post! My new year’s resolution has already started, I’ve just created an Instagram account to show my cards and I hope to keep it updated throughout 2016 so that it can grow as much as this blog did.
    Lots of Love!

  557. Phyllis Werner

    Happy 2016! I love paper crafts and enjoy creating for family and friends. It brings me so much joy to give a handmade item to someone. So my resolution this year is…..make more stuff! Thanks for your all your creative inspirations. Keep them coming.

  558. My resolution for 2016 is to plan ahead on new projects and find more people to stamp with. I have several ideas to introduce people to StampinUp and I’m going to do it. Wish me luck!

  559. Gale Kleckner

    Happy New Year! I’m always organizing and reorganizing, going to spend more time actually making cards. Need to have some cards made ahead of the occasion!!!

  560. Kendra Shafer

    This year, I would like to be more organized and have my family and friends birthday cards already made and ready to put in the mail or deliver in person. I feel like I am always scrambling at the last minute to throw something together when I know I can do so much better when I have the time.

  561. Gayle Chrvala

    Organization, organization, organization is my vow this new year. I have been using more dies and they always seem to be lost. Then there are the polymer stamps that stick onto things they shouldn’t. So I have a basket on my work table and whatever I choose to create with will go in there until I’m finished. Fingers crossed that I make it to Valentine’s day with my paper crafting new year’s resolution. Thanks for the chance to win and I love your card samples and blog.

  562. Jane Zuelsdorf

    Happy 2016! I have so many possibilities – finish organizing my crafting area, make more cards earlier than the day needed and a scrapbook for my son from graduating high school this year!

  563. I am going to use all of my DSP this year!!!!

  564. I am going to finish my Christmas cards before Halloween. Or at least Thanksgiving!

  565. I have several goals this year starting with: designing my new craft space in my new house, sending out cards every month, holding a couple classes a month, and recruiting a few ladies to join in on the stampin journey and finally revamping my my blog and posting weekly. To 2016!!!!!

  566. I want to use stamp sets that I have purchased, but haven’t gotten around to trying, yet.

  567. I am looking forward to re-organizing my creative space and am going to mail out more of my creative greeting cards. I have so much to create!!!! I also look forward to spending more time with my sister who is just getting into paper crafting .

  568. Happy 2016! I am looking forward to sharing more creative time with friends. thanks for all your inspiration and ideas.

  569. I’ve already started my reorganization of ALL my stamping supplies. I am seriously considering a “She Shed” (check them out on Pinterest) or refurbishing a small camping trailer to use just for my stamping. ( again check out what some really talented folks have done on Pintrest)

  570. I want to organize my cards to send by month (which I have kind of already had for family but want to include friends and co-workers, etc. into the mix) and have my pre-made cards better organized so that I am more ready to send out cards. I also want to clean up as I go this year instead of being so frantically making the cards I need that I feel like I don’t have time to clean up — this makes me not want to make the next card because my creating space is a mess all the time! 🙂 Thanks for your inspiration during 2015 and I look forward to your inspiring cards and crafts during 2016! Happy New Year, Mary!

  571. Love, love, love the penguin stamp set! Perfect for this chilly time of the year! Thanks Mary for ALL you do. I look forward to reading/seeing what soooo many of your followers and yourself are up to each day. It is so cold in Wyoming this time of the year we do a lot of “indoor” time. Makes for some great creativity using ideas from your emails! Thanks!

  572. 2015 was a tough year. Out with the old and in with the new. I am reorganizing my scraproom with lots of Stamp-n-Storage and I am going to be better at sending out homemade cards to my loved ones. Thank you for all the great information, inspiration and ideas to help us on our road to creativity. Annette

  573. I ordered the paper dividers for my card stock from Stamp n Storage. It will help me know at a glance what paper I am looking at.

  574. I am going to try and get caught up on my project life for my children. Just two years behind!

  575. My resolution is just to have a little bit of time to craft; something I haven’t found time for since the arrival of our 16 month old (can’t think of a better distraction!). Thank you for your inspiration that has helped me feel connected to my creative side even if I don’t have time to create! Also, many thanks for the chance to win this fabulous blog candy.

  576. I’m going to make more cards and send them out in 2016!

  577. My crafting resolution is to clean and organize my stamping space!

  578. Organize my stamp sets, for sure! I have piles of them in my craft room right now, and need to be able to find what I’m looking for WHEN I need it!

  580. My resolution is to complete my purge process. Then reorganize my craft space. Thank you for sharing your talent and a chance to win blog candy. Happy New Year!

  581. Really want to be more organized & use up my stuff! And keep being inspired by you Mary! Happy New Year 2016!

  582. I’m so addicted to this craft that I never buy a card but make everyone of them. In order to continue to WOW the recipients, my resolution is to learn more advanced techniques like pop-ups and cutouts. I want my family and friends to know how much I love and appreciate them.

  583. My crafting New Years resolution is to get my new craft room organized and to try and get my little side business up and running. Happy New Year!

  584. I will always make time for crafting no matter what!!! I will craft until I die!!! LOL! Thanks for this opportunity! Happy New Year! 😉

  585. My hope for 2016 is to clean up and organize my space. Thank you for all your inspiration.

  586. My hope for 2016 is to use up at least half of my stash!

  587. 2016 . . . Organize my new craft space…..I now live in a 560sq.ft. two room apartment! I will be organizing my “coat closet” as my “craft closet” ……! Woo Hoo! Enjoy a happy and healthy 2016 everyone! A special thanks to you Mary for all your continued encouragement. . . .even for us little hobby crafters!

  588. I would like to start a 625 club and stamp monthly with friends

  589. For Christmas, the hubby built me a desk to fit exactly where I wanted in my craft room to utilize maximum space. Today, he is hanging new shelves so that things are at eye level and within reach. 2016 should bring a lot more stampin’ now that I can find everything easily 🙂 Happy New Year!

  590. Reorganizing my framelits!! I ordered Stamp N Storage’s bins and magnet cards. Happy, Happy, New Year, Mary. Thank you for sharing all your talents with us!!

  591. Happy New year!!!

  592. I’m going to reorganize my craft room and commit to keeping it clean and organized!

  593. I’m in the middle of reorganizing and cleaning up my craft room. My goal is to keep at it! And to toss, give away or sell things I’m not using any longer. This will be really hard for me. I’m a craft hoarder!!!

  594. I am in the process of redoing my craft room. I am actually taking over one of the bedrooms in my house. Talking about a mess! Wish me luck!

  595. I’m not sure if I commented already? I plan to make many cards, use my big shot more and clear up my card making space on my kitchen table!! I have good intentions now to just do it!! Happy New Year and thanks for sharing!

  596. In 2016, my resolution is to get my paper rafting supplies organized. My friend got me the stamp n storage punch rack. It will be so nice not to have to find punches and see them at a glance. My wish is to have a room like you do! You are very lucky!

  597. In 2016, I will organize my papercrafting supplies and make birthday cards early in the year for all my birthday card recipients, as well as use some tools and punches that I tend to forget about. Happy New Year and thanks for sharing all of your amazingness with us 🙂

  598. Tiffinnie Reed

    My plan for 2016 is to get caught up on scrapbooks and make more cards! Happy New Year!

  599. Happy New Year Mary! I love your site!
    My 2016 resolution is to work on my 23 year old daughter and 27 year old son’s baby books… Better late than never :0)

  600. Leslie A Deering

    My goal is to find and join a card swap this year so I can become more creative with the supplies I am blessed with but never have a chance to use !
    Happy New Year Mary I look forward to your inspiration !

  601. My resolution is to craft more, use all stamps sets I purchase at least once, and share my hobby with more people.

  602. My resolution is to send out the cards that I make and share my love of stamping!

  603. My goal is to pick a month and make all the birthday and anniversary cards for friends and family celebrating in that month in one card craft session! Then file them away by month, ready to go 🙂

  604. Shirley Baker

    My goal is to continue to get better at organizing all my papercrafting supplies.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    Happy New Year, Mary!

    Shirl

  605. I have my craft supplied organized really well. My biggest problem is that when I come up with one idea and go to gather my stuff, I think of other things to do to and overwhelm myself. My goal is to limit myself to one idea when I sit down to craft! I already have an idea for Christmas cards so I plan start working on that much earlier this year! I would also like to follow through with something I started last year and gave up after a few months. I would like to bless 10-15 people every two weeks with a card. I also need to use instead of hoarding my favorite products!

  606. Tamara Stewart

    My 2016 craft resolution is to organize my DSP so that I don’t order more and have all these leftovers. Sometimes I order extra cause I like it, but for the most part I either can’t find a particular one or i forget that I have it altogether and order a new one.

  607. I want to get ahead of birthdays by making a stash of cards so that I’m not always scrambling at the last moment to get a card sent out. You’d think that that would be easy as I don’t have a large number to send out, but I’m always somehow surprised by the birthday…I think it is more a problem of the birthdays being clumped together and not spread out throughout the year. 🙂

  608. My plan is to utilize the Tin of Cards and be ready to give a card at a moment’s notice!

  609. I want to build up my inventory of all occasion cards to have on hand and to begin creating my 2016 Christmas cards in a timely fashion.

  610. I am trying to organize my craft area. It is my goal for 2016. As well as do some more project life. Only 10 years behind. 🙂

  611. Danelle Hauser

    Stay more organized

  612. My craft resolution for 2016 is to use up some of my supplies before I purchase new ones! I have so much that I really don’t know what I DO have.

  613. My crafting resolution is to share what I make with others. I have a bag of cards ready to be delivered to the retirement home down the street.

  614. Sandy Carroll

    I want to use more of my pattern paper. I like it so much, I hate to cut it up and share it!

  615. My goal is to improve on organizing my stampin room. I have ideas for pay it forward to make card kits for retirement and nursing homes. When my Aunt was in a nursing home for awhile she always enjoyed projects I would bring her.

  616. I want to organize my craft room and try to tidy up after each project. I hope to do more crafting!

  617. Funny that you would write about reorganization of stamp supplies today.That was my #1
    Plan as soon as Christmas is put away. Which will be tomorrow.
    I am itching to get back to stamping but promised myself NOT until I get better organized…. Happy New Year Mary!

  618. My goal is to stay on top of my friend’s and family’s birthdays. Many live far away so I need to send them earlier than I have been. I made a list of birthdays for each month and I set a stamp day the month before to make cards. Happy New Year and thanks for the chance to win!

  619. I resolve to sort through & organize my crafts then invest in a nice new set of stamping pads.

  620. Organize my stamping treasures!

  621. I vow to use more of the DSP that’s piling up on my shelf!

  622. I really want to be more organized by making enough cards to have ready for any occasion. When a birthday comes I would just go to my file, grab and mail. That would be great!

  623. Vanessa Schultz

    My goal for 2016 will be to use my stash of old DSP on a project 3 days each week.That leaves the other 4 days to use the new DSP I will be ordering soon! Thanks Mary….Love your site.

  624. Cindie McDuffee

    Spend more time playing and having fun with colors out of my comfort zone!

  625. My Stampin goal is to finish my small craft area–I have a big closet of 3 x 8 so one end of it is becoming my stamp area–soon I am hoping to get it organized–I have some shelves already it is just a matter of getting everything organized…

  626. I enjoy organizing. But this year I hope to spend less time organizing and more time making and sending cards.

  627. I am clearing out all the unused crafting items from my craft room so I can make more room for new exciting Stampin Up products!

  628. I am organizing all my photo albums. I am starting when my children were born 32 years ago and moving forward. I plan on using my big shot, dies and punches to capture the best parts of pictures then attach them to 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock pages (or using my divided album pages like project life.) This has been a goal of mine for several years now and since I am finally retired…..picture organization is happening.

  629. Organizing is a must for me, and hope I can get it done real soon. Thanks for a chance to win you fabulous blog candy.

  630. I have to organize my craft room and make some ahead of time birthday cards. I need more time.

  631. My paper crafting resolution for 2016 is to make a certain number of Christmas cards EVERY month and not leave it till fall.

  632. Happy Happy New Year Every One !!
    Organize all my new stuff, then dive into making Valentine’s Day creations. I have two granddaughters that love to play also with Nana’s SU stuff and make cute gifts for all their friends. They would love the Snow Place stamp set. Nana does not have that one.

  633. Like Chrystal, I always seem to put off making my Christmas cards until late in the year and then it’s a rush. My goal for 2016 is to make cards every month so I can also give them away as gifts for Christmas!

  634. My 2016 resolution is simple. Send out cards that I have made instead of saving them all. Love your blog every morning.

  635. I am making cards early, putting them in envelopes with the date in the corner so they are ready to mail. Thanks for the chance to win the wonderful stamp bundle. Happy New Year to you!

  636. Happy New Year! I am going to send more cards out, I make them and then they sit there. I want to brighten people’s days by giving them a hand stamped card.

  637. I am going to use up my stash of dsp and make lots of designer paper envelopes. I I will not hoard that pretty stuff!

  638. My papercraft resolution is to make and send everyone a homemade birthday card and to complete at least one scrapbook this year. I need to get my supplies in use!

  639. My resolution is two-fold: enter more card challenges to help me grow my craft and try new techniques that I have admired and pinned. Happy New Year!

  640. My resolutions are to make cards for birthdays, holidays, and other occasions prior to the night before the event and to finish one vacation scrapbook.

  641. Resolution!!! My resolution this year is to REALLY organize my stamping stuff and enjoy what I have! I enjoy making cards and scrapbooking but get EASILY frustrated while trying to sort out my stuff to find the image in my mind for my project. I’m hoping to get that all corrected this year. Thanks so much for all your inspiration and Happy New Year!!!!

  642. My resolution for 2016 is to send out more cards to family & friends. I enjoy the making of cards……it is sort of a “therapy” for me & I know what I feel like when I receive a homemade item from someone. So, I want to do that. Plus, challenge myself to use more DSP on cards rather then hoard it!! Thank you for the chance to win a great “blog candy” plus have a wonderful 2016.

  643. Happy New Year to tou, Mary!! Hoping to get my craft space better organized in our basement and get a jump on 2016 Christmas card this year.

  644. Happy New Year! My crafting resolutions are to organize my paper crafting space, try a new technique each month and make time for stamping throughout the year!!!

  645. Weed out the old and reorganize. I donate all of my scraps and white cardstock and retired stamps to the local kids camp for their projects. Feels good to share with the kids. Feels good to have more space too.

  646. terese Burdette

    My resolution is to make 5 cards per week now that I have my new craft room. Also, I plan to create 2 scrapbook pages per week in order to catch up on that hobby.

  647. My resolution is to better organize my supplies and projects!

  648. My resolution is to get my craft supplies/room in an organized state to be able to find things quickly.

  649. Oh boy, do I need to do some organizing! I love seeing your ideas and these framelits have the perfect spot just waiting for them 🙂

  650. Jeannette Haynes

    Happy New Year! What a great way to start off the new year with you sharing wonderful SU! goodies. My resolution is to send out more cards, and to also make card sets as door prizes for my monthly ladies church group.

  651. Ann Castleberry

    Happy New Year to you and your family. I spent the last 5 months ridding me and my life from pain killers and sleeping pills. The last month was the most fun because my service project was making cards and other paper crafts with my new friends from rehab. I re-learned how to have fun and laugh again. I thank God (and my husband) every day for my new life. And I look forward to continuing sharing Stamping Up in the new Year.

  652. My resolution is to finally get my craft supplies organized and use all the new stamp sets I have at least 1 time.

  653. I would like to send out more cards as well, and send more cards to my family too.

  654. Linda Baumann

    My goal this year is to reorganize my stamping room, so I can use all the DSP that I have. I also want to make all my cards in advance, so I am not making a card the night before I need it. Love your site. Linda B

  655. I have several crafting goals for 2016, with the first being to organize (again) my craft room and all my supplies. I also would like to bring crafting opportunities to shut ins or people in nursing homes.

  656. My goal is to use more DSP in my card designs. I also want to do a stamping demonstration for the residents in the elder care house where my mother-in-law lives.

  657. I have got to get my craft room organized this year so I can make more cards!!! I also need to start on my Christmas cards for 2016 now. Organization is the KEY to my success this year!!

  658. My New Years resolution is to complete an album for my daughters birthdays.?

  659. My goal this year is to start a blog to share my love of stamping! Wish me luck;)

  660. I want to try and send out more cards, I know how much I love to be surprised and get a card in the mail. Send cards to up lift someones day!!!

  661. My goal this year is to get organized so I can scrapbook more and send out more handmade cards. Fingers crossed!!

  662. Ninamarie Coulter

    For 2016 my resolution is to make unique cut/folded cards and to finish all the Christmas cards I started in December.

    For 2015 my resolution was to finally finish all the hundreds of cards I had started but had not finished. Done!

  663. Going to try be more organized this year…my craft room sometimes looks like a bomb hit it!

  664. Those items are really calling my name. I’m working on organizing a new space and planning daily card making.

  665. Danita Hollander

    My 2016 New Years resolution is: to keep Christmas going all year long! I have found so many wonder things I wanted to work on but did not have the time!!! So each month will focus on the pieces I want to work on including some wonderful cards to have them all done by Thanksgiving!!!

  666. It’s time to go through my craft stuff and finally let go of the things and crafts I don’t do anymore (like knitting and sewing).

  667. There are many projects on my goal list this year, but first, the craft room must be reorganized and supplies that I rarely or never use downsized and donated.

  668. Happy New Year! One of my resolutions is always to keep my paper crafting area more organized. So far, I am off to a good start. I also hope to find the time to make more cards to send and to give as gifts. Thank you for all of the ideas and inspiration you provide daily!

  669. Yes I will be reorganizing my craft space and making it easier to work on my card project

  670. I am in the middle of reorganizing all my stamping supplies. I had to break for the Holiday as I couldn’t finish before Christmas. Looking forward to finishing and having everything organized. That means more crafting time rather than searching time. Thanks.

  671. Since moving a few months ago, I’ve been been trying figure out a better way to store and organize everything! It’s changed quite a bit already!

  672. I am going to try to re-organize my work table and make more cards during the coming months.

  673. I plan to make more cards before I actually need them. Hopefully that will help keep my space a little better organized too.
    Happy New Year Mary and thanks for your great blog?

  674. NOT a ? — an ! at the end of my sentence!! Oh typing on a small device sometimes (head shaking) LOL

  675. I love your daily blog! Especially when you feature what other folks are creating. It is so refreshing to see such creative pieces. Thanks Mary

  676. We just down-sized into a smaller home. It causing me to re-organize my stamping supplies. I am so looking forward to my final look and being able to find and use my supplies again! Deb B.

  677. Dona Stallworth

    I resolve to get a Big Shot before May 30 and to make at least 5 cards a week (more than one per week)! Your site just keeps getting better and better!

  678. To make and send the cards I create in a timely fashion! I’d love for the recipient to receive a card without the word “belated” in my message! Thanks for your blog and all the inspiration Mary. Happy New Year!

  679. Shell Ann Ondish

    i resolve to organize my craft room!!!

  680. I hope to use some of the many hoarded designer papers and make more little “just because” gifts for my colleagues!

  681. Oh I would LOVE to win this! I haven’t crafted for a while and am moving soon so all of my goodies are packed away :(. This would be fun to play with to get back in the swing of things!

  682. Kathy Van Helsland

    My first crafting resolution is to organize my craft room again. It gets messy at the holidays due to lots of projects given as Christmas gifts. My second resolution is to try to use up DSP. I have a lot as SU has given us so many wonderful designs over the years. I have to work on the use mantra rather than save it mantra. Thanks for all your creative inspiration over the year.

  683. I resolve to use more of my stockpiled DSP, it is so beautiful but it’s beauty needs to be shared! Thanks for the chance to win!

  684. I hope to organize my craft room and then spend more time crafting!

  685. I plan to quit pinning cards to my boards and start making some cards! There are so many cards out there to give me inspiration that I just keep looking instead of making. This year I’m going to be making more cards!

  686. I need to clean up my craft space after the crazy Christmas rush. I am planning to make more cards, and maybe make some Christmas cards every month. I don’t think I can live without my big shot!

  687. Reorganize the craft room is a must!!! The time has come.

  688. I hope to get control of my “works in progress” and scrap paper pile.

  689. Teresa C in California

    I plan to make and send more cards. Rather than waiting for the holidays, I’ll take time every month to make a few cards — inspired by all the great cards I see on Stampinpretty.com, of course!

  690. My resolution is to organize my craft closet by removing the items I don’t use and by putting things away in their place when I am done with them. I spend too much time looking for things because my craft closet is too cluttered and things weren’t put where they belong. I am looking forward to creating many beautiful cards in 2016!

  691. I have already cleaned up my stamping room so my plan for the new year is to send more cards to my family and friends on all their birthdays and more than just Christmas ! And with all the things I cleaned out of my closet two weeks ago– I plan on having a large rummage sale the beginning of the summer to sell it all then give the rest to a senior center to have arts and crafts.

  692. Ellen Warthen

    Mine is to organize my craft room. It is a mess.

  693. My resolution for the new year is to send out cards every week – more than just birthday, get well, & sympathy – turning my good intentions into actions. Thanks for your daily inspiration!

  694. My resolution is to finish some projects and cards that I started!

  695. I’m planning on keeping a larger stash of Birthday cards! I never seem to have them on hand, but I have plenty of supplies! I’d also like to make more time to get crafty…. dishes and laundry can wait 😉 LOL

  696. Well, I’m not one to make resolutions anymore, as I never make it through the first month of the new year, but I have made some changes that I am looking forward to. I have changed around my basement to not only have my crafting room, but also created a Diva Den for some of my friends to get together once a month to do crafting together. Our first weekend is coming up – really looking forward to it and getting projects started AND COMPLETED! I am also working to get my stuff better organized and when I come across duplicates of stamp sets or die cuts to give them to my friends who enjoy them as much as I do. I also look for a technique that someone else is using that I like and try to add that to my bag of tricks. I wish you and all crafters out there a happy, joyous, and crafty new year!

  697. I spent our two week Christmas break thinking that I would crank out cards. However, once I got into the “groove” I decided to reorganize. Started with just my paper. which lead to embossing folders. Well, as you can imagine, I didn’t get any cards made, but everything has a home now. I’m ready to make some cards! I would love to win this set and add to my collection!

  698. Bernice Wright

    My plans – not calling it resolution – Lol – is to organize my craft room – and get a good start on my cards and projects for craft fairs that I get involved in each year. And also – send more cards to family and friends – just to say “Hi” cards, to help me use my supplies.

  699. I definitely need to start working on Christmas cards far earlier in the year. I would also like to come up with a system to record the sets I own – which is going to be a mammoth job, but so worth it in the end!

  700. Congrats to Sue! I didn’t realize how many comments were submitted for the prize! Enjoy and happy New Year!
