Birthday Card for Hubby

Hi Everyone, Hope everyone is doing good, I'm enjoying a 5 day weekend! trying to get some

crafting done, my computer decided it didn’t want to work anymore.. so we got it fixed

the computer guy saved just about everything but, so much I had to reload.

I’ve been working on a few different things, Mainly at this moment its Mail Art, a group over on

Facebook is doing it, I've sent out 8 and got 2 , My smash booking isn't going very well

need to work on that more too.. But I did manage to Make my Husband a Birthday

Card, first off sorry for the burry picture, after having to deleted all the pictures from

my Camera, because computer thinks they are new.. I got lazy and didn’t retake the picture.

for the Card, I like most of it, but I just couldn’t get it to look the way I visioned


so that’s it for me right now, will be back with some instagram photos and hopefully

some Mail Art pictures

thank you for stopping by

Craft room Update!!

Hi Everyone! Hope all is good, Well, What started as a Cleaning and Reorganizing

of my craft room,because it was a major mess and it was hard working in there, turned

out to be a whole room remodel, My Husband went to Ikea earlier in the week to get them

book cases, and this weekend we went again and ending up going to home depot too,

My Husband had some great ideas and he put a lot of hard work into that room 

Here are some of the changes we made


The old nasty floor


The New Floor, its beautiful


The Second Ikea book case, ( I need to fill that baby up..LOL)


My Husband working hard , putting together my

new desk..


The new Desk and drawers, both from Ikea!!


This is the first Ikea bookcase we put together, I really like the white

baskets.  I still have stuff I Have to put away and organize, into the new

stuff, and need to find better way to store the stuff on the shelves

I just got new curtains today and a new desk lamp.

we’re not doing anything more right now, maybe In the near future we will

repaint the walls, But right now, we both are very tired..and  I want to Craft!!

Thank you for stopping by

Craft Room Help needed!!

Hi Everyone , well I took Monday off work , cause I wanted to have a relaxing 3 day weekend

Instead by body hurts and I'm so tired. I've spent pretty much all day Saturday and Sunday Trying to Organize my

Craft room. And I'm not even done.. Im Happy with My redo of the closet area, but I have a cabinet full of stuff

I have no Idea how I want to reorganize that, got Material and a Sewing machine that needs a better space, but

something that is moveable cause I do not sew a lot.. but I have a habit of collecting Material as well.. I don’t like

the plastic tables anymore I would love something wood with storage underneath.. I got a few pictures to share .

Any ideas would be wonderful..

I Want to get rid of this Cabinet and get something more user friendly, Its full of Beads, Flowers

Instagram Tuesday

Hi everyone, thought I would join Kellie this week in Instagram photo’s of the week, I

just love this app on my Iphone.. The First 6 pictures are from Instagram the rest from my regular camera

Sunday we took a little trip , walked in the woods trying to find morel mushrooms, didn’t have any luck. we

took the dogs, we don’t usually cause one gets car sick, but we decide to try again, and good news neither one of them

did and Think they had a blast..

Hopefully my next post will be a few Smash Pages, I did enough shopping this weekend to last a very long time.








Hope everyone has a great week!
