So yesterday Paper Crafts tweeted....What's going on in your craft room this weekend? And I tweeted back...my craft room is on hiatus! I really thought that after Gallery Idol and a fried brain that I would just clean up in there and take a break. So I did clean up and I even took some pics of my new room....as I have promised to do several times! Then I closed the door and sat down at the computer! I was excited to have time to
waste spend on Pinterest! Immediately, I found lots of inspiration! I just started pinning away....until I found this...
So basically I told PC that I was on hiatus...and now I'm not because I hopped right back in my cleaned up craft room and made this....
Our eye doc in town has asked me to make him some Thank you cards to give out and once I heard about this Lawn Fawn set, I ordered it right away! I have been so busy that I haven't had time until now! And until this Pinterest pic! Love it!! I love how it really looks just like the picture!
The glasses are stamped in True Black and Fresh Snow! Then I ran that panel through with the Linen IP! Do I ever NOT do this? Yes, I am addicted to that impression plate!!
So that is it! Always amazed at the inspiration over at Pinterest!
NOW....I have taken a boat load of pics for you to see my new space! It's nothing extravagant but its mine! And its so nice and bright and cheery! It's the total opposite of my old space which you can see HERE...the old dark cave!
So here is my desk! I am going on a trip to Ikea in September and I can hardly wait! Until then I am using this white plastic table that I have had for years!
Just another angle in front of my table!
Here is my work space! I do all my stamping on this black piece of foam from Michael's! It fits perfectly on my Scor-Mat that goes right on top of my Scor-Pal! I have the Tonic Guillotine trimmer, which I LOVE, and the Creative Memories Personal Trimmer from years ago! I use both on every card I make! I love having the big one for large pieces of cardstock and the small for more detailed cuts! That white basket at the front of the table is all my acrylic blocks!
This ink holder is an old casette tape holder I found years ago! I stores all of my ink so easily! The CD rack to the left holds all of my sentiment sets from PTI! I love having them separate to be able to grab quickly! My Copics and Big Shot live on this table too! All within reach!
This is right below the table pictured above! I keep all of my PTI cardstock in this hanging file! It is actually a drawer for the little shelf on the right but I found it is so much easier to just keep out! Then I have things stored on the little shelf! The top 2 totes are all of my DeNami stamps! I have them stored by sentiments in the top tote and then all the images are in the bottom one! So handy for me to grab!
The drawer below is sort of a problem area....a problem being that I am sort of addicted to those little rose buds that Michael's recently discontinued! As you can see, I have several packs hidden in that drawer! :) I also keep some miscellaneous trims and all of my felt there! Right under that drawer is my scrap box! I have all of the scraps thrown in there....not handy believe me...but I am working on getting that organized soon!
I have had pics of this shelf here on my blog before but its probably my favorite part! My dad made this for me from the instructions that Nichole Heady had on her blog!
He made me 4 ribbon shelves and then converted the 2 bottom shelves to store CD cases! I love this because I know I will never have as much ribbon as that lucky girl Nichole has! LOL! And here my stamps are again right within reach!
This is how I keep my Nesties now! If you looked at my old space, I used to keep them on magnets right up on a mirrored wall I had in that space! It was so handy just to grab what I needed! Now since I am trying to look a lot less cluttered, I am storing them all in this 3 ring binder! I cut some thick plastic and attached the business card magents to each and then just put each set in a pocket of these 3 ring card holders! I love being able to flop through and find what I need!
I have a few more pictures in a group on Flickr! You can click HERE to see those! I didn't want to bore you with too many pics here! And Joy....I tried to do a video tour of my space....but I sounded terrible and fidgeted all the way through it! It wasn't pretty! LOL!
I want to send a HUGE thank you to all of the AMAZING friends I have out there in blog land! I was shocked....seriously shocked at all the comments and emails I received yesterday with sweet words of encouragement! Thank you all for that! It really made my day so much brighter!
Thanks for coming by today! I hope you have a great weekend!
