Progress....

So baby came, and is in our bedroom in a bassinet because his room is still our guest room. We're building a guest room in the basement to move that lovely furniture into, however it's in the process of having the drywall seams fixed up, Friday or Monday is the big sanding day, and then cleanup. Once that room is ready to prime and paint - I know where I'll be spending my free time... With my mini-me baby boy of course :)




Have a wonnnnderful day!

Reminiscing... good times...

I think back to a few years ago when I'd take my rubbermaid drawer tower to all day and all night scraps, and work at the tiny kitchen table.  I think back to being frustrated that I couldn't get into the "groove" because it took me so long to setup, and I couldn't finish anything because I'd loose my "vibe" in the transition.

Here's a flashback to how it used to be...


Then I had my daughter and the pictures were sooo precious, I had to do something about my situation so I took up my saw, drill and creativity and made what I thought was a fabulous, perfectly functional craft cockpit in an  8x4 foot space?





Now we've been in storage and in renovations for almost two years, and with baby number two and one year maternity leave my dear hubby chose the most wonderful birthday gift... a craft room in our new home!

Well... I'll continue to reveal my unpacking and exciting surprises as I unpack in the upcoming weeks... stay tuned!

Have a wonnnnderful day!

And even prettier....

The paper shelf my Daddy built for me...

And two large boxes jam packed with paper! I remember opening out a large box and re-taping it to 12x12 for packing my paper, here they are and I hope what's in there is still intact and in good shape ;)

Hands, head, heart... An artist

A woman who works with her hands is a LABORER; a woman who works with her hands and head, a CRAFTSMAN; but a woman who works with her hands, her head and her heart is an ARTIST. ~ Louis Nizer

Thanks Melanie for the inspiring quote :)

Marble-ing paper

This is a fun and easy technique to add a splash of fun to your plain papers. I've seen this done with shaving cream as well but here's the grown up version using a product by Mini-Eco and their instructions.

Craft room almost finished!!

I'm super excited to say that all cabinets are up! There's some drywall fixing that's still incomplete and the glass counters are arriving later this week and some finishing like trim on the floors but I can move in since all cabinets are finished and it is such a great feeling!

I love my Daddy ;)

Pretty shelf :)

And my paper cabinet - yay!!

Now we've got electrical stuff to work on, under cabinet lighting, an overhead light to install, a few drywall fix ups and down the road, floors.

But... I can move into my cabinets now, and work on a project now - that's the coolest!!!
