New Challenge Blog! Check It Out!



Have you heard about Shopping Our Stash yet? It's a new challenge blog that will motivate us to use what we have (GASP)! But in reality, we all know that means making room for new stuff, right? I have been making a serious effort to use my older stuff and scraps lately, and have made a whole pile of Dad cards to send to OWH without cutting into new papers :)

The SOS challenge right now is to post pictures of your creative space. Mine is below, and there's nothing like a picture to show you how messy something really is! I wish I could do a panoramic view of the whole room, because it's not all this messy. But this is my main workspace and the stack of supplies I'm currently using to make those Dad cards...

My space is a mix of IKEA finds and random bookcases that didn't find a place in other parts of the house. I do have a paper rack (in the corner) from a craft store that was going out of business. That's one of the best things I got - otherwise the paper would all be hidden away and lost. The room is an extra bedroom in our house, and I also have a full-size walk in closet attached to it. If only there were more hours available to spend in it!

I hope you all are having a good weekend. Thanks for looking!

Wow, nice space. And a messy desk is a happy desk, I say! Yay for using up your non0virgin card stock to make Father's Day cards - I soooo need to do that!

Great craft room - seems you have a lot of light in there (it's something I'm missing in mine). Love the large table and paper rack too!
Thanks for joining us at Shopping Our Stash! Hope to see you again soon!
