I'm in love...





I am seriously in love with this desk!!! Nevermind the fact that even if I could afford it, I wouldn't have a place to put it! Maybe I could cram it somewhere! Isn't it lovely?

Easiest card ever!!!


Wow! This card was so sweet and simple to make! I received the "Note of Thanks" for free and used one out of the four cards, for my "thank you" to my hostess! This set is great and cheap! You get 1 double mounted stamp, an ink spot (chocolate chip), 4 cards (2 3/4"x4") and 4 envelopes for only $10!

I used the Flower, Daisies #2 (Big Shot) for the flower and repeated it 3 times. Then, I centered the flower with the "bouquet of buttons" in Baja Breeze. I put foam dots underneath "a little note of thanks" for a boost. Oh, and of course, I used Swiss dots (CB) for the background. Speaking of background...I like to make my envelopes pretty too, so I used some stamp set (not sure what brand-sorry) for her name, but used the Petal Pizzazz stamp for the "O" in Mona...hope you enjoyed!Posted by Picasa

Reusing a Ferrero box...





The Pink Elephant's #11 challenge is to Reuse/Recycle something...so I chose to reuse this box that I received at Christmas time...I thought it would make a great embellishment box and I think it turned out really nifty...

I used the paper that was lining the bottom of the chocolate box as a template to use for the paper lining both top and bottom. I used SU! designer paper, "Urban Garden", for the word "embellish" I used K*i memories mini alphabet soup and I used Jolee's white flowers for the top lining in the middle of some the flowers in the Urban Garden. I don't know where the ribbon came from...

My first workshop...



The top picture is a 6x6 scrap page I created as a door prize...the above picture is the project everyone made at the workshop...
I have to admit that the ideas were not originals...I got the card out of the SU! catalog, I just changed the colors, oh and I used swiss dots on the pink part...I thought it would be an appropriate Mother's day card and the ladies seemed to enjoy making it! And the scrap page was from some other SU! booklet or something...

I think I did a good job explaining the products, but with the economy not much money was spent...which was ok, I had a good time sharing what I love to do...but I don't know if I will be successful as a demonstrator. I have one more trick up my sleeve and if that doesn't take off I'm done...

My pal Jakey!!!



This dog is sooo sweet and lovable! Here I sit in my freshly madeover scrap/laundry room and he lays at my feet! I really love this dog! Don't get me wrong I love Mollie Joe just as much, but she seems more independent and she would rather lay on her comfy pet bed than on the hard floor. There's nothing like the faithfulness of a dog!!! My cup runneth over...

Hope you all are having a blessed day...and let me leave you with a thought...have you loved on your dog today?Posted by Picasa

Good things come to those that work...

Yikes...before....





AFTER...



Although this took longer than I expected it was worth it! I feel this room is more functional and more mine, than a laundry room! YYEESSS! I did the best I could with what I had to work with and I'm happy with it! Hope you can get some inspiration or ideas from my room!

Operation Organization!!!

My mission this week is to clean my craft/laundry room up. I have done this before, but this time I have some handy helpers. I bought a paper shelving unit and a wall embellishment organizer and I am sooo excited to be utilizing my tiny space more effectively! I will be posting some pictures when I am finished, but alas...it has taken all day yesterday and I am still not finished today...hopefully, tomorrow I will be finished. My living room is a mess! I moved practically everything out of the room and am putting things back with organization in mind! So tootles and I hope you come back and see the transformation!

Here's a bucket that I am choosing to use for a trashcan for my makeover room! Maybe in my next house I may use it to hold towels in a bathroom...the possibilites are endless!

The Pink Elephant Challenge





It's Easter time at the Pink Elephant and so goes the challenge!

Colors: Baja Breeze, Tango Tangerine, Kiwi Kiss, Pacific Blue and Pink Piroutte
Stamp set; Loads of Love and Accessories
Tools: Heating tool, Cuttlebug folders + bug, Cutterbee paper piercer, Nestabilities, Crystal effects

I used iridescent ice embossing powder for the eggs strip and white embossing powder for the "Eggstra" saying. I crystal effected some of the eggs in the truck. I stamped the image on designer paper and also on white paper. Then I popped the truck up using foam dots. I also popped the saying up with foam dots. On the edge of the paper I used a white pen to dot in the scalloped part. I think everything else is self explanatory, but if you have questions I'll be happy to answer any...

I have had an awesome week and hopefully will be able to share some pics with you soon!
