Let me tell you a lot..With some of the before pictures I will make some of you ladies PROUD of me…..LOLok a little story I ordered a new paper cutter, when I got it , it was broke so I sent it back. got a new one. Ok went to make a card and I felt my table was too small, this paper cutter is bigger and I wanted to just be able to keep it on my table. So when I asked hubby (he was in a good mood)..lolI think I need another table told him I wanted a table to put my cuddle bug and slice on so I will use it more.since he bought them for me and kept asking why do you need more stuff how many times you use the stuff I got you.I said I use it..he didn't believe me so I thought it was a good thing to say,(so I’ll use them more) and to help the mattera bit I said I have a 10 dollar gift card at Sam’s club . so off I went to Sam's I have a 4ft so hey I thought I’ll get the 6 ft thinking it would fit perfect where the 4ft one was cause there was somespace.. well get home.. guess what it…

Hi Everyone, I actually Like Wednesdays now, I’ve been making some cards the past couple day, and I clean up my desk area last night it was very messy.as you can see I never paintedthem words yet maybe today, so I took a picture of my messy floor. and my storage area.. The wood floor is yucky about 2 months ago after and animal accident I ripped up the carpetwas going to sand the floor and re stain it, well we haven't done it yet and after a couple weeks I put everything back in there because we couldn't walk in the front room!  so I'm hopingthat will be a later fall or winter project..And thank you for the nice comments last week on my craft area.. I truly love this. Its great seeing other’s work area’sI have a collection of magazines going that is just some of them I need to find a place for them.thank you for stopping by and lets see your work area . and be sure to stop by the The stamping groundto Julia’s blog and post your area .Thank you and have a great WednesdayHug…
