In my thoughts...

Hello again!

So one of the things that I enjoy almost as much as stamping and coloring is organizing. Especially if that organizing has anything to do with my crafty supplies, LOL! I've been hooked on TGF stamps since my first purchase back in early 2009 so last year I printed out the Greeting Farm stamp archive to keep track of my collection and which ones have already made it on to cards. As I was filling it in I noticed that the master list is missing some stamps from the registry so I've been figuring out their release dates and adding them in myself. I think it's all together now so time for the real fun to begin, seeing which neglected stamps need to get some serious love this year.

I was shocked to find out that the very first Ian stamp that I got eight years ago, Hello Ian, was one of those unloved stamps. So out of the binder he came and I am happy to finally share him here on the ol' blog. His plaid cap had me looking for some plaid paper and when I came across this print from October Afternoon I knew I had a winner. The color palette is masculine yet still kind off bright and cheery, perfect for this dapper little dude. And I can't even tell you how satisfying it was to grab my highlighter and cross Hello Ian off that list. ;)

Thanks for stopping by and sharing in my crazy!  :)

Well, Ian is getting lotsa love now... you dressed him up beautifully! Your history with TGF is amazing. Fantastic idea to catalog those cuties! Now they'll all get the attention they so aptly deserve! 💕
