New Space In My Craft Room

Hello Friends & Welcome Visitors!

Warning, Warning, Warning!  This blog is going to be very picture heavy!  So get your coffee or tea and settle back for a long look...or go on to the next blog!

As a lot of you know; I have had Shingles since September 9th.  I was very thrilled yesterday because my doctor told me "it was one of the worst cases he has every seen in a person so young."  Well...I didn't care that he said it was one of the worst cases, I was just so happy he said I was young! LOL!  

Anyway, my poor husband has just felt so helpless;there is really nothing he can do for me, I just have to wait to get better so he decided to build me a new craft closet.  So everything has been moved around in my craft room and I want to show it to you.

Here is my new closet!

Look how big & clean the room looks!

Wow!  Empty shelf space!  I have my jars of washi tape, twine & skittles.  I put a Halloween Album my friend Rhonda made me and a Witches hat I made last year on there.  But, I actually have empty space for projects!

This is what is below that shelf.  Notice all the Twine it up Twine!  I'm addicted to the stuff.

I got a Cut n' Boss for my birthday.  I have only used it twice but so far I love it.  On the shelf above are my dies.  I keep them in photo boxes.

The shelf above my embosser.  I really could make some room here too.

I have one tray for each of my Design Teams, I keep schedules, sketches, etc.  See through the window that house across the street?  It is haunted!  Just thought I would tell you that since Halloween is near.

This is the space under my desk, I keep my photos and my Copic Markers here.  Notice the two Hello Kitty lunch boxes?  I keep my glue in one and my tape in the other.

I have to work on cleaning these shelves up next.

This is an up close look at the shelf.  See the mishmah of stamp pads?  Does anyone have a suggestion of how I could better store them?  If you do; please let me know!

Well that was the tour of my craft room.  If you would like to see how it used to look; go up and click on "My Craft Room" at the top of the page; I haven't updated it yet.  Please notice that my Cricut is gone....I sold it on e-bay...I haven't used it in over a year.  I love my Cameo Silhouette and use it almost every day; so the Cricut had to go.

Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate all of your comments.

Let's Scrap Weekly Design Sketch

Hello My friends and Welcome Visitors!

There is  a new design over at Let's Scrap along with a new prize challenge!  Here is the sketch.  9-24-14.

And here is my take on the sketch.  We went with our son & his girlfriend Sarah on a wine-tasting tour of the Eastern Shore of Maryland.  We really had a lot of fun.  I made this for Sarah's scrapbook.

I hope you will stop by Let's Scrap and see what the other gals have done and then play along with us!  We are always having fun!
