Happy New Year's Eve!

Hi Everyone! Hope all is well. I'm fine & have been enjoying my time off this past week. We have plans to go to our friends house tonight for New Year's Eve celebration. Hope everyone else gets to do what they want tonight as well. Here are the pictures of my cleaned & almost organized craft room, all of Christmas has been put away & I've been able to work on other things instead, of course my camera is still only picking & choosing which pictures to download so I have to get pictures of the projects again. In the meantime here's pictures of my room:

Here's the entry as you can see just about everything is close by.

My Nestabilities, my Cuttlebug is stationed right below so these are easily accessible.
Here's a close up, all labeled for easy identification.

Here's the area my dh calls my little "Archiver's" he thinks I have all of the store stored in this area :) Little does he know I hope to expand off this little area in 2010 :) shhhh don't tell him.

Here's a close up of one side the picture of the other side didn't download...

Here's my Clip it Up which holds my clear stamps for which I organized by theme this past week. I may have to get the upper extension to store smaller sets as I think it's completely filled now.

This is my cabinet that holds all my stamps, the upper shelf holds my Angel company stamps & a few pads of 8x8 papers. The next shelf has my unmounted stored in binders as well as some wood mounted in the containers two of which are Christmas stamps. The next shelf has various other stamps mostly wood mounted & the bottom which you cannot see in this picture has my Stampin' Up! sets. The cabinet to the left of the picture has envelopes & such & as you can see I have a card carousel which holds various finished cards.

Finally, here's a picture I thought someone might be interested in, this is the inside of a small binder which holds unmounted stamps on the lids of the large SU clamshell boxes for which I punched holes in to place in the binder. These I'd say i frequent often as they are one of the easiest ways to get to my stamps :)

Well if you have any questions please leave me a comment & I'd be happy to explain something in more detail. Thanks for stopping by & Happy New Year to you and your's!

Missing in Action

Or so it seems... really busy still so my apologies for a lack of posts lately. The time is just flying & there's only 10 days until Christmas... yikes - I still have a ton of things to do... I'm sure I'm not the only one though. Well here's today's DT Challenge card - it needed to be in all red with the exception of the image - that in which would look funny in red :) I used last Friday's freebie since I didn't have time to work on something last Friday. Let me know what you think & be sure to join in on the challenge - just hop on over to the SMC Blog for more details & to see what the other DT members came up with. Have a great day & thanks for stopping by!

It's Friday!

Busy, Busy & Busy

That's just how I feel at this time of year... So much to do and so little time & now we are awaiting a snow storm here in the Midwest yucky... Well enough of that talk, on to business...

It's that time, time for a Sew Many Cards new release & the images this month are super cute... How many of you guessed which image I got to work with? Well here's the sample I made using it, let me know what you think :)

This little guy was so much fun to color & since I'm so late getting my own Christmas cards done one because I'm filling special orders for others and two because I've procrastinated how I want this year's card to look I've decided this little guy will be part of my 2009 card :) Isn't he so cute? On to this week's DT challenge, perfect for those of us here that have to deal with SNOW... we were asked to create something with a winter theme & here's what I came up with:

I'd love to hear what you think thanks for stopping by and don't forget to get over to the SMC blog & the Ning blog as well to be a part of the new release party! Have Fun!
