Summer Card Camp- Week 3

This color combination is actually the same color theme as the main living space of my house. Kitchen, living and dining-coordinate near perfectly.

Kristina's Video/Lesson this week featured Typography. She has me completely addicted to alpha stickers...If there are meetings for that somewhere you should really let me know!

Something was a missing so added Glossy accents to the 4 and the circle border to balance out with the shiney chipboard letters.

Summer Card Camp- Week 1

Sooooooo loving this summer card camp!

You know that never ending craft room project???

When I began blogging I was trying to reorganize my craft space. Since then I have moved not once, but twice. That alone has it's perks and downfalls.
Perks of packing up and moving your craft room numerous times. Finding things you forgot you had. Getting rid of things you haven't used. Getting up close and personal with all the schtuff you've hoarded for years! Why did I buy that? What was I thinking? OMG! Shiney object!!!!
Downfall. Packing. Moving. Carrying. Hauling...And not being able to craft again until you can find it all.
I was in my apartment 6+ months and never finished setting up the new room. In a house now, new room was set up my 2nd week here. I am loving it!
Here's the "before". Just a boring empty corner in our unfinished basement.

After 2 days of independant hammering, sorting, assembling and being distracted by several shiney or sparkly objects...

I'm Still Alive, I Swear!

In the last 6 months I have broken up with my boyfriend of 4 years, moved to a new city, got promoted at work, edited my cirlce of friends and family, and as you know, lost my beloved Duster. Lots of changes... I will be the first to admit that I didn't deal with all of them to the best of my ability. I certainly didn't feel up to about it.
It's Spring and I feel it in my soul not just the weather. I am "back to me" again. I have every intention of blogging more. I want to include cooking, decorating, designing and of course my crafting. So stay tuned... It's going to be a bumpy ride.
Now that I've adjusted to the single life and regaining my independance- I am looking forward to the next phase and put this one behind me.
With that said, I am moving again. With this move I am purging everything that is not near and dear to me. I am starting over and I'm so excited. For years I have collected midcentury modern furniture and accessories. It's all going. I wont have room in the new place and I'd like to fill my space with the new me. Don't worry, I'm still going to have a craft "corner". Not the master suite but it will do.
I will be posting the furnishings online. As I go through my craft room and find things to let go of, I will post them here as well as online. Wish me luck on my journey. Oh and I'll post some pics of a few things I've done since posting last.

Thank you cards inspried by K Werner. I would post more but my other computer crashed with all my photos. Be back soon...I hope.
