I was a little bit panicky, but for the most part I was excited that the rest of the basement would be done and useable. Well that all changed when I seen the door actually closed off.
Check out all the samples on Split Coast Stampers!! That will keep you busy for a long while!! LOL
Ohhhh you poor, poor baby! My heart weeps for you! Just let him know there will be SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES if he does not get it done tomorrow, as withdrawal is not pretty! LOL!

I don't have to worry about my door being block off as it don't have a door. It is open to the whole world. Problem is when it isn't clean it isn't very a very pretty site. I feel for you though Wendy.
(This is my absolute favorite)
Carefully open it and reseal it before he gets home from work, LOL!!!
Definitely a farce and trick to keep you away from your beloved stamps! Thankfully, in my household, I'm the painter :) Which reminds me - I'm getting the bug to paint my craft room - the contractor's blah walls are starting to get to me!!!
My husband would say i could use the day to clean my house! lol Sure hope mine doesn't get the idea to close off my stamping door. lol Hit the dollar stores and find something to decorate for when you get back in your room!
I'm deleting this QUICK before hubby walks in!!! LOL!
BUMMER! You must be "jonesing."
I think it's all a farce by your hubs! He's tricking you so you will spend time with him, or even worse...HOUSEWORK! They're tricky like that!! ;o)
I would tear it off for the day! Hehehe
I am so sorry for you Wendy.
I hope you will make it through the day without withdrawal symptoms, lol. I hope this is the right word for it?

Oh Wendy - so sorry - but you can always clean your house - or bedroom - or wash clothes, or work in the yard, or go shopping? Wanda
When you're not catching up on laundry and vacuuming, you will be meditating on WHERE EVERYTHING GOES once that door is open! And it might be as well if you got someone else to help you with it - four hands is great, ESPECIALLY if the other person has an idea where things will be going!!
Hang in there, we're all agog to see it when it's done!!
lol - I knoooooooooow whatcha mean, girl!!
Today, I am taking some of my retired SS and stamping a cover sheet with each stamp, then nuking them and removing the rubbers from their blocks, and finally storing them in a CD case. WAHOO - room for more stamps!!!
LOL, you weren't kidding it's sealed up! Sounds to me like it will be worth the wait. Would love to see the re-do pics when it's done!
Get your house chores done for the week so you can just go into the room and stay
Make up 4 days worth of meals and freeze them
Do up the laundry (at least wash and dry)
And tidy up the house
That will keep your mind off the room and the computer!!
Good luck lolol
OH NO!!!! I don't know what I'd do either!-Erika Martin

I'm excited to move away from the more subdued color schemes of winter. Although I'm not a big fan of purples--it is a must for spring, isn't it?
