2011-2012 Stamp Set Retirement List Ponderings

Well, last night I woke up when my son came home from his first DJ wedding gig.  It was 12:50 am CST and only 10 minutes from the unveiling of the stamp set retirement list so of course I stayed up and retrieved the list as soon as I could.

I am usually giddy with excitement because I do like seeing some of my stamp warehouse to be cleared.  Well, not so much this morning.  I lost a total of 55 sets so far (not counting the mini catalog sets).  What was a bit more upsetting was the fact that I will only have 30 "current" sets (again not counting mini catalog sets).  Talk about clearing out the warehouse!  Yowzers! 

I'll get over it to be sure, and I'll be using these sets like crazy until the end of May.  LOVELY AS A TREE was spared thank goodness!  Which sets will I miss most?  Dasher, Grateful Greetings, I (Heart) Hearts, Totally Tool, Loads of Love, Under the Stars, Upsy Daisy, Flower Fest, Baroque Motifs, Sincere Salutations, and Thank You Kindly.

To top it all off, since many of those phrase sets were my go-to sets, I'll be weeding out hundreds of additionanl samples.  Some I may just change the greeting if nothing else is retired.  My sample bins will be pretty empty.

Here is the retired list:

The Accessory Retirement List comes out April 25th.  We already know that our jewelry line and Definitely Decorative line will be discontinued.  If there are any of these items on your must-have list, I'd get them now!

On a positive note, with all the stamp sets cleared out, I'll have lots of room for some brand-new Stampin' Up! stamp sets!  I can't wait to see the new catalog!!!!!
