Can you tell I’m excited? I love it all! I love the chairs, the custom table, the organization… all of it is–perfect. It is easy to sit and use and it’s even easy to put it all back (the hardest part!). Here are some photos. Enjoy, and if you live near–stop by and let’s craft!

Moving down to my new space :)

I can’t believe all the craft crap I’ve hoarded! I am going to be giving away a lot of old DSP, unopened kits, and other little extras. I just can’t handle all the ‘extra’ things I’ve accumulated. It’s interesting to see how much you can pile in to a box and not even realize what you have. :-P I am happy to be getting things into their own spaces where I can see them and access them quickly. Hopefully it all stays tidy (ya, right) and I can continue to craft in an organized space. Any tips on how you organize? Would love to hear! My wood organizers are from Stamp-N-Storage and they are wonderful. They are actually going to be featuring my before and after space in an upcoming video ad! How cool! Can’t wait for that and to share once I’m all moved in. :)

Makers gonna make!

I was in the hospital for 4 days and I had asked my husband to round up a few essentials for me:

  • Hairbrush
  • Paper Pumpkin Kits
  • Clear Acrylic Block
  • Snail Adhesive
  • Small Ink Spots
What else could a girl need? I’m happy to report I’m on the mend from a severe allergic contact dermatitis. :) These kits can go ANYWHERE with you! LOVE ‘EM!

STARS Swap Angel

I didn’t originally sign up for the swap the DOStamperSTARS were having but when Dawn posted that they lost a swapper I stepped in to be a swap angel! :-P I’m so happy she let me :) With only two days I think I came up with some cute cards and I was able to whip ‘em up and be the swap angel I said I’d be! :) I’m sort of a procrastinator so I was really in the zone ;)

I just love this card. I wish the photo really captured how sweet it is. The embossing is beautiful and I love the paper piercing in the right corner of the top layer. Fun additions that you’ll have to look for. A really fun card!

I ran out of stars after 8 cards so I used these super cute buttons! I just love the Lost Lagoon button <3

Wow, it has been a long time since I’ve put some ink on paper! I finally stamped again today and I came up with two fun cards. 
The stamp sets are from the *new* 2015 Occasions Catalog from Stampin’ Up! 

Our basement is under construction and I can’t wait to have a crafting studio all set up down there. I think that’s why I’ve been so reluctant to stamp–I just want my new space finished! I can’t wait forever :P

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge

I played along with the Thursday Challenge this week! :) Notice the Borderette stamp set? I used Versamark to add a subtle design to the large star… I should have tried stamping it in Daffodil Delight, too. :)
