I am married to a Great Guy - Charlie.  We have a beautiful daughter, Charese, who is a JOY to have.  We love the outdoors, watching movies, reading and I love scrapbooking and cardmaking.  There are other hobbies as well.  I love to meet new people and share my love of scrapbooking and cardmaking with people.

15 Birthday Card Class Workshop

Here are some samples of the cards we are going to make in an upcoming workshop.  There will be 3 cards and we will make 5 of each.  One sample is not on here yet because I had to order the supplies for it.  Also one is not complete because I am waiting for ribbon to come in.  But you will get the jest, and I will be updating as soon as the stuff comes in.  I am excited about these cards.  They were a lot of fun to make.  Took most the day though to get my creative mind to settle on what I was going to do.  Check them out.  Come back soon to see when the classes will be held.

January 13, 2013 Sunday - What should I do....

Today I was hoping after spending yesterday morning doing dishes, cleaning the living room, and designing my nieces graduation announcement that I would scrapbook the day away and get some pages done.  However, things took a turn.  I ended up spending most of the morning, early morning like 3:30 am trying to calm down an asthma attach.  Which then led into sleeping in because I didn't sleep well.

Finally getting up and still eager to spend the day on my scrapbook pages, things changed again.  My daughter came down and asked if she could move a dresser out of her room and put in a desk and clean and dump things.  Which then inspired me to spend the day cleaning my craft room, a deep clean. 

I dusted, found a stack of items I bought before Christmas and filed those into their new homes.  I went through all my paper (I have a lot of paper), Organized found some new homes for things.  Also have big plans right off of my craft room is my daughter's toy room which she is out growing now 11 years old.  So we talked and decided that we would make it still a place she could play but also a craft room for her and me (my overflow).  YEAH she agreed. 

I decided that the dresser that she didn't want in her bedroom would be perfect in the overflow room, it has 3 drawers and a shelf on top perfect for displaying my projects.  I am so excited about this but still much to do.  This did help inspire me to organize my scrapbook room today and moved some things out into the overflow.  My husband is going to help me move the dresser down this week and then I will complete organizing the over flow craft space. 

Today I accomplished a lot not with scrapbooking but with organizing so that now I can perhaps scrapbook a little every night because I am getting so organized.  Here are some pictures like I said still have things to do but I am looking at what I have accomplished today.

My papers, photo albums, craft magazines, misc. area
Finally cleared off top of shelf, and dresser/cutting area
This space still have cards in progress on it but otherwise organized
This counter area cleared off, one stack of papers to file but that is it.
My computer space finally cleared off and you can see my keyboard.
My Cricut space finally cleared off and ready to work.
Table work space finally cleared off ready for me to sit and work.
Corner that still needs to be worked on another day, stamps to go through etc.
Overflow space needs to be worked on.
More of the overflow area Need to work on.
Lot of dumping today it feels so good to do that some days.  I feel refreshed and energized.  Have a great day everyone.
