Craft Studio Progress

The laminate flooring is being installed this week, first into the new guest room, then my craft studio, continuing out into the open space of the furnace room. Once the guest room is finished and we move the furniture down there I can get started on baby's room - yay! Then I can clean the tremendous dust in the basement from all that construction and finally unpack my craft studio - big grin!!!

Here's where we reached yesterday...

Reusing gift wrap

Turn Pretty Paper Into Packaging - thanks Martha!Don't toss away all the wrapping paper that once covered your wedding presents. Instead, run it through a shredder (cut to size first, if needed) and use it for lining gift boxes or protecting breakables to be shipped.

Candy roll gift wrap

There are so many ways to do this cute technique, for example, wrap a toilet paper roll in gift wrap, insert the gift inside, then wrap in cellophane, and tie with ribbon!




Martha has her own take on it here.

Traveller's Tag

I didn't know that gypsies were called Travellers. Either way, the Copic colouring on this beautifully detailed illustration is out if this world, I just had to share this!! I've already got my eye on my moving box that has "Copics" labelled on it!! (Sssoooooo excited!!!)


Melanie over at Paper Blessings is certainly someone I'll be watching as I hone back in on my Copic colouring skills.
