Okay, with real estate . . . it's all about location, location, location. When you have a craft room, it's all about organization, organization, organization (especially when you have to count everything for tax purposes)!!

I was out on Angie Juda's blog bright & early on Monday morning (6:00A) and got SO inspired, by her organization skills with paper, ink, etc. She redesigned her whole craft room! If you have some time, check out her videos (there are 3 parts) on how she has her craft room is organized! WOW!

So, Monday night . . . while Terry and Nathan were at their Wolf Den meeting, Patrick and I hit HomeDepot. We had to pick up Nathan in one hour, so we had power shopping to do! I wanted bins that I could put my ink pad, reinker, daubber, and sponge in (by color). HomeDepot didn't have what I was looking for . . . so off to Sears we went! Felt kind funny walking around HomeDepot and Sears with an ink pad (to ensure it would fit)! :o) They had them . . . so I bought two! Then we went to K-Mart and bought a labeler! We did all of this in ONE HOUR! Can you believe it?! Once we got home, I just had to start into organizing it . . . here's what it looks like. Excuse the graininess of the photos, I took them with my iPhone.

Here's what each individual drawer looks like. I then put them in alphabetical order . . . thought I could find 'em faster that way. Tonight, I'm helping Patrick's Tiger Cub Den with making a scrapbook . . . they really had to twist my arm on that one! :o)

I have the monthly workshop, on Friday night . . . so I'll post the projects out there either tonight or tomorrow night. Can't wait for the gals to see the new 'lil cabinets! :o)

I'm going to take on organizing my paper scraps next! Gosh this feels good! Look out, an organized monster is erupting! :o)

My Digital Studio

Stampin' Up! just came out with a My Digital Studio Catalog! WAHOO! It's 76 pages, so I don't know about printing it . . . but pretty cool that it's all in one place now! Be sure to mark it as a favorite!

Want to see other creative work, forums, or videos? There is a website just designed for My Digital Studio!

We've got Cousin Night, with Theresa's (sister) boys, at our house tomorrow night . . . so I'll be sure to snap some photos of all the boys! The boys look so forward to this night every month! :o)

I made some Valentine/Anniversary cards, for Theresa and Jenny, but since their anniversaries aren't until Monday . . . I'm not going to post the pictures until then. :o( I don't wanna spoil the surprise, if they go out here . . . 'ya know? I hope they like 'em!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Thanks for stopping by my craft room!

Upline Challenge

We have a downline meeting today, at Jeri's house (my upline)! Nothing like a few hours of "girl time" and incorporate a meeting too, huh?

Jeri gave us a challenge, at our last downline meeting . . . to make a card or project, made from an inspiration (color, punches, etc). I went surfing through Oriental Trading's website and found a train magnetic photo frame (right). Figured it was really cute and given the age of our boys, thought it'd be perfect . . . here's the card that I came up with.

Nathan helped me out with the eye and mouth, on our train. :o) He did a pretty good job, don't you think?

I guess your inspiration for a project really can come from anywhere! Start looking through your catalogs, to see what you can come up with! :o)

I hope you have an inspirational day! Thanks for stopping by my craft room.

January is almost gone . . .

I can't believe that January is almost gone! Just a few more weeks until spring . . . right?! :o)

We're supposed to get a major snow storm (or so they're saying) this week. Nothing like what the northeast folks are dealing with . . . but a snow storm just the same. Hoping it misses us completely!

We started a Stamp Club this year, where the girls take turns ordering $25 in SU! products and then take turns being the hostess (with all the hostess benefits too) . . . here's a picture of the gals making their projects. We sure had a great time the other night!

Stay warm & drive safely! Thanks for stopping by my craft room!

January Projects

Sorry it's been me so long! Seems that we've had something to do all the time . . . including weekends! :o) This weekend will be no different!

I meant to post the projects last night, but it took me two hours to get home last night . . . then it was time to eat, take baths, and then go to bed! Thank goodness falling snow looks so beautiful!

Here are the January projects . . . we're using the Take a Spin stamp set & the Game Spinners, with the card on the right, decorate a Stamp Case (with your choice of DSP), and make a Valentine's Day card.

Hope to see you at the workshop! Thanks for stopping by my craft room!

Here are the beautiful handmade gifts I received:

Theresa: Family tile (with SU! medallion stamp)

Cara: Elf shoe with chocolate bar chimney and bells
Steff: Santa terracotta pot (Steff painted by hand)
Jenny: Monogrammed towel and hot chocolate holder

I made a clock, made with the SU! medallion stamp too! Didn't know it was going to be a medallion Christmas?! :o) Who would have thunk that three of us used that one stamp? Just goes to show you how versitle it is, huh?!

Thank you ladies, for such wonderful gifts! You're such talented women . . . it's no wonder I enjoy time with you gals! :o)

Christmas Postcard

Is it just me, or does it feel that Christmas is sneaking up on me to fast?!

I can't believe that Christmas is two weeks from Saturday!! We have so much to do . . . and we have 2 family holiday celebrations + a birthday party too! GEEZ!

I hadn't even gotten our Christmas cards done yet! So . . . what'd I do?! I whipped out the My Digital Studio and created a postcard! I'll print these off and then mat them on some cardstock (Cherry Cobbler of course)!

This was kind of fun, putting multiple pictures all together. Whatcha think?

Have a happy weekend! Thanks for stopping by my craft room!
