Time to ignore the brutal cold and think spring!
With all the cleaning, purging, and downsizing I have been doing recently I was really glad to discover that I didn't toss a folder of stencils! The question is WHY in the HECK do I even HAVE stencils? It must be a throwback to when I "did crafts"! These technically should have been disposed of years ago! But...there it was. a folder marked "stencils". So I got to play along with the challenge at Just Us Girls. Stencils! Stencils? Now that was truly a challenge for me!
Since I was going retro by dusting off stencils I decided to go all in and use a Dynamo label maker for the sentiment. I prefer my P-Touch for labeling during my crazed must-organize-right-now-OCD-moments. I wonder if you can still buy the plastic label tape for this DYNA-Saur!?
