Spring clean up in November

I spent all day Saturday re-organizing my craft room to make room for my new 12 X 12 racks from wiredisplays. I was gonna get the tall skinny one, but no place for it in my room. Instead I went with 3 stackable side by side 12 slots cause I know I can put it on my dryer. Tey're $35.95 each with 25% as is sales discount (Canadian dollors)

I also put my other rack on the washer (hubby said he will hang it from the ceiling to raise it off the machine a couple of inches)

And of course I had to re-invent my ribbon holder!

I got the idea from Ellen Hutson. I do sponging a lot and I always get the ink all over my fingers, but this way you have the paper clip as the handle. I also bought a storage for it so I have one sponge per color.

Christmas Baskets

Wow! I did all 80 baskets 2 weeks before the deadline. You should of seen my basement though...What a mess! Of course it doesn't help when you have two little girls checking out the goodies and doing the quality check every time I leave the room.

Hopefully I will get to do it again next year... (hopefully)

I guess I'm off to my next project (42 invitations) oh.. and tomorrow is CalGals night...WOOOOHOOOO

COACH mini purse

I just love making this little purses. I know you're sick of it by now... but I discovered how to cut the handles with out breaking your cuttlebug plate. It is very simple and I thought I would share it with you!

It's my first tutorial so... be nice ok?

You will need 3 sizes to cut the handles. It's up to you if you want thin or thick handles.

I have to warn you that by doing this, it will bend your die a little bit.

This one is the middle size die.

How easy was that?

Lets play ball

I was going for a black and white purse, then I realized that the other side of the paper is more of a masculine design. So, I came up with this.
Instead of a handle, I just folded the top part over to show the other side of the paper.

I love doodling... I used the copic pen and I'm amazed how nice and smooth to doodle with.

Bake Exchange

It's my Bake Exchange today! Yup... I was busy all day yesterday making 32 cards/ 48 tags/ 8 treat bags. You're probably wondering... bake/card??? I asked if I can bring cards instead of cookies. I can't bake!!

Treat Bag

I made a little treat bag for my daughter's classmate the other day. **LOL** her mom was more exited about the bag than the birthday girl.
I got the idea from Angie's blog.
I also made another one for our groomer. She is the BOMB! She just came back from Disney Land and she brought treats for the girls.

You're Invited

Love the paper from my minds eye. They were on sale at the scrapbook pantry and thought I bought some of this one... it turned out I didn't stock up and yes... you guess it right! the sale is over.

I love the tag by spellbinder, I just wish they have it layered instead of single one.

You know.... I'm such a procrastinator. Here I am doing all these cards for my estsy when I should really be doing my 80 gift baskets that's do at the end of this month and my 40 inivitation cards do the first week of December. I have always been like that... always waiting to the last minute.
