Handmade Doily Coasters

Handmade Doily Coasters I made for my mammy's Christmas Gift. They were super easy!! I saw the ideas somewhere on a blog (can't remember where, sorry). The idea I saw used lace in a circular pattern but I figured why not use a real doily. Tied it up with a pretty satin ribbon bow and a handstamped tag.

It's a Shabby Chic Christmas!

I decided to decorate my craft room in the Shabby Chic style and wanted to make alittle something special for the holidays. So I made a shabby chic ornament wreath for my door!!! It was super easy. So much so that I think that I will be making a few for gifts.

I'm moving..

AGAIN!!!! Don't worry, this isn't a duplicate post. As much as I LOVE LOVE LOVE my shamrock green craft room. It was just plain too small for what I need it for. So, a trip to Ikea and some moving across the hall and I almost have my new craft room set up. I decided not to paint, it is currently a pretty celery green. So not too much work to do but I am going to repaint the closet and possibly remove the doors in the new room for my sewing closet. So I will post some pics once it's done. In the mean time, here's a little card I made for a custom order that I am working on. And BTW my etsy shop should be up pretty soon!!

New Upstairs Craft Room.....

COMPLETE!!!!Here's a view of the bookshelf where I hold all of my SU! Background stamps, Circut machine and carts, some of my idea books and my cardstock.

My custom built craft closet.

This pic is kinda boring but I am thinking I am going to purchase the Cricut Imagine I saw at CHA and do a bit of Woodland and gnome decorating in here to go with the Shamrock green color of the walls. Oh the white cabinets hold all of my wood mounted stamps.

The south wall and my kitty, Sweetums.

My desk and such :) Hope you like it!!!! If you have any questions please feel free to ask :P

I'm Moving!!!

My craft room that is, from downstairs to upstairs. We are having problems with the heat and air conditioning reaching my current craft room. So upstairs I go. it is a bit of a smaller room but I am actually excited to get to decorate and paint and yep, of course reorganize my space (for those who don't know me, I am an organizational freak!!). SO EXCITED!!!! I will post some pics when it's all done. I am painting the room my favorite color..GREEN!!! To be more specific....SHAMROCK GREEN!!! And my plan is to do a gnome and woodland theme :)

Happy heart day!!

For real this time. Every year my husband and I make each other Valentine's Day Cards. My husband is getting pretty darn good at stamping as you can see.....

I made the cuckoo clock card using Hero Arts Cuckoo Clock stamp set and a few other odds and ends I had laying about. The Card is actually a view finder card that has moving clock hands and in the cuckoo window- a special valentines day greeting. I hope you enjoy it!! My husband was amazed with it and was trying to figure out how I did it :)

Happy Heart Day!!

So I know I am early but I have been wanting to cute-i-fy my craft room. I just got back from CHA which was AWESOME!!!!! I got totally inspired to decorate my craft room from the Girl's Paperie booth. It was decorated SO cute I can't even begin to tell you. So anyways back to my decor. So for an ode to valentines day I made this love banner using my new Slice machine (which I HIGHLY recommend purchasing for those who do not have one) and some odds and ends I had laying about. The white frilly stuff is actually off white streamers (another recommended item) I bought from a party supply store- super cheap and super cute to add a vintage flair. I hope you like it!!!
