Scrapbook room

I wanted to share with you my finished scrapbook room. Mom was up last week and she hung my curtains- which I love! I painted my table top in chalkboard paint, I keep a cloth over it when i am doing any messy work, but it handy when making cards or pages and you have to write anything down.
I wanted to show you a few of my special organizers, many ideas I got from Pinterest.
The first is a tier I made from old plates and cups. The set of dishes are from a garage sale that I went to about 20 years ago. They are real china, but sad to say it was not a complete set and I never could find more pieces. I was going to send them to the thrift store but changed my mind and I love the result.

Next I want to share my glue gun stand. Kory made it for me this week and to everyone that doesn’t have one of these, make one! It is fabulous.20130523-172752.jpg
Kory also has made me some holders for my stamp ink. I have plenty of room left to buy more colours. He even added pegs for me to hold my sponge daubers( I just need to make more).
The last of the photos just shows the rest of my room. Hope you like it. You are welcome anytime to come craft with me ( you will even notice I have an air conditioner so it is summer friendly).


Bird house

I know you have seen the tea boxes and the tissue boxes I have been decorating, but since I have been on this roll doing decoupage, I decided to just keep going.
Last week, a friend gave me a little wooden bird house. I have seen them at the store. They come plain, just like the tea boxes, but I never gave it much thought to spruce them up. So now I have this plain wood bird house. I need to get my creative juices flowing, as usual I turn to Pinterest. Being inspired, I decide to give it a try.
After decoupaging and embellishing the first one, I had to run out and get more. (The first one is the little one in the front). I am loving these! It’s like decorating but way more fun!
I am not sure of the boys like that they haven’t seen me in days, or are getting concerned that my only time out of the house is when they drive me to get more craft supplies. Which reminds me, I need to head to the store tomorrow to buy more bird houses.


Tissue box and tea box


Ok it seems like I haven’t done much actual scrapbooking lately, but I have made a lot of cards, sorry no pictures to update. I did go to a crop on the weekend with my two cousins and had a blast. I did get a few pages done, I will post a few pictures soon, I still have journalling to do.
Anyway I have been making a few tissue boxes and today I made a tea box.
I have to share these with everyone, but I have to say my favourite is the tea box.
I used For Always paper from CTMH, I distressed the paper a bit to add more taupe. One day maybe I will make one for myself.
