Challenge card

I made a card today for challenges on Late Night Stampers and Scor Pal Pals (yahoo groups).
This is a twisted easel card.  The picture shows it open.  Here is a link to the video tutorial on how to make this card (this tutorial is not made by me):
Everything I used for the card is current Stampin Up products except for the pearls.  They were from my stash.
The colors are Wild Wasabi, More Mustard and Pretty in Pink.  The stamp sets are Vintage Vogue and Just Believe.

I hope you enjoyed seeing this card and thanks for visiting my blog.
Happy Day.

We Have Babies

Ok, they are puppies, but babies just the same.  The white one is a boy and the black and white, a girl.  They are about 4 days old in this pic.  I waited until they lost that baby rat look before I took any pictures. They are 8 days old now and still do not have their eyes open, but are getting cuter by the day.

This is a picture of Momma.  This is her first litter and she is a good Mom.  It is so amazing how animals just know what to do.

This is a picture of the Daddy.  He is a little older now than he was in this picture.  He is interested in, but afraid of the puppies.

I am planning on spending all afternoon in my craft room, so hopefully I will have some new project to show you soon.
Happy Day.

Misson accomplished

I  have finally finished the clean up.  Took over a week, I knew it would.  Here are some pics of what the room looks like now.

This is the shelving unit I got from my DD.  It is holding all my cs, except for my Stampin up cardstock.  The top of it holds all my 8 1/2 X 11, 11 X 17 and larger paper.

This shows a rotating rack that I bought from our local recycle center.  I thought it would hold paper when I bought it, but the spaces were not big enough.  So now I store stampin up sets, and nesties,  attached with magnets on the corners.  The iris carts hold stamps, punches, embellishments, stamped images, and how to papers and templates for paper embroidery and paper cutting (3-D pics, templates and pop up cards etc.)

This is another shelf I got from my DD.  As you can guess, she also was doing a cleanup at her house.  The shelf houses misc. stamping stuff and all the ribbon overflow from behind the door and the iris cart.  The drawers hold my pergamano crafting stuff, teabag folding stuff and general crafting stuff.  I have a lot of STUFF.  The top of the closet shelf holds boxes of ribbon and lace, wall paper books, all my scrapbooking albums(I have 7 but don't know why because I do not scrapbook).

This is my file cabinet that holds templates, paper, hand made envelopes and lots of instructions how to do stuff.  I do not know if you can tell, but the outside of the door has a hanging  fabric storage unit(can't think what they are called, kind of like a shoe holder) that holds 24 stampin up stamp sets.
To the right of that is an iris cart that has ribbon and fibers.

The back of the door holds some of my punches. The space behind the door and the iris cart hold ribbon.  There is also a narrow shelf (against the wall) here that holds wood mounted stamps. The shelving unit beside this holds my brasss stencils, quilling supplies and misc. paper and supplies.

This is where I do my cuttlebugging.  The squar shelving unit holds all my little scraps tha I use for the cuttlebug and mypunches.  The iris carts, below, hold Stampin up cs, (left hand unit) wood mountd stamps, foam mounted stamps and ink pads. 

The corner of the room here has a narrow shelf for wood mounted stamps.  The iris cart holds prima and silk flowers as well as some wood mounted stamps in the bottom shelves.  The white shelf holds several color box petal point ink pads (some of which are nearly 10 years old and still work), my crimper, my circle cutter, and oval cutter as well as glitter glue, stickles and liquid pearls.  This is sitting on my light table, which I hardly ever use any more (since I got my cuttlebug).
The parts holder, behind the light holds pearl x, radient pearls and embossing powder.

This is my main working area, to the left.  The desk to the right will now be for stampng freinds.  I have made myself a promise not to let it get piled high with STUFF.  All the shelves in the back hold markers, scissors, glue, tape, clear stampin up stamps, ink pads, bling, embossing powder, etc., you know, all the stuff you need to make cards.

Well, that is about it for my room makeover.  Now, all I have to do is get rid of the overflow that is in my bathroom, upstairs hallway and master bedroom.  This may take another week :-).
Hope you have enjoyed seeing what can be done when you (actually I mean I)  put your mind to it .

Happy day to you all.

Half way through

Well, I am finished my room for now, but I just wanted to show you what the process looked like as I went along.  These pics show what my room was like as I rearranged.

Lots of stuff that had to find a home.
