WOYWW and more frugal ideas

Quick post. You would think that I hadn't worked on anything since the last post but there was quite the flurry of different activities since the last WOYWW. I've just come back is all. This simple design had to be  continued so on a long car ride I cut out all the cups I'd stamped (Frugal tip #10: use your time wisely) and found some cute paper scraps for the bottom of the cups. I'm determined to make cards of all the ones I stamped. Then, Frugal tip #11 hit me. The tip is find another use for any given stamp. I realized that with Halloween approaching stealthily, my "What's brewing?" stamp could be perfect for a Halloween card when paired with a cute witch and some theme paper. Using the same design, I converted the sketch to just that theme. Now I just need to track down a cauldron stamp. Lol
TFL!

So many interesting things to see here - love those cup designs - very versatile. But most of all I love your messy work surface - wish mine looked that good.

Still loving the coffee cups, I think that stamp is earning its price! Tell me - the notepad n the bookring - is that your stamp catalogue?
