Stuff I've made...

These are just a few of the ornaments that I'm working on, these will be for sale in the same gift shop that sells my cards.

I've come down with a sinus cold so I haven't been making anything new, I made these cards last week before I got sick. I used my Cuttlebug embossing folders, my Cricut, Martha Stewart punches and some Fiskars decorative scissors to make these cards. I also used some fake dew drops that I got at Dollarama.

Individual alphabets...

I haven't taken pictures of my cards yet but I've been working on the labels for these jars so I thought that I would post a picture.

This is how I store my individual alphabets. I get these mason jars at a local thrift shop for .10 cents each. Hope everyone has a great afternoon, especially now that the sun is finally shining.

Pictures of my stamp studio...

A red tool box. Perfect for storing stamps.

Small punch storage, found this in a thrift shop , this one has four drawers.

Single stamp storage.

I have two of these Ikea racks under my desk, they hold some of my MS punches as well as some EK Success Whale of a Punch punches.

Picture of my card catalog filing cabinet, it has five drawers in it, perfect size for my StampinUp sets. I found this at a local thrift store for $15.00. This sits to the right of my desk.

Picture of the filing cabinet open.

This is a filing cabinet that was used for large index cards.A friend got me this from an office he was renovating. It holds some of my StampinUp sets.It's actuall quite large, it has eight drawers. I had two of these but gave one to my sister to hold all of her stamping stuff too. This is behind my desk.

This is a picture of the area around my desk, my punches are hanging on curtain rods, my stamp pads are stored in an old cassette shelf, the two filing cabinets on my desk are from Ikea. This space is very small (7x10) and has a slanted ceiling towards the front of the house. Behind the chair is a metal desk with five drawers , I got it at a thrift store for $3.00.

My First Post..........

I never thought I'd take the plunge and create my own blog but here goes. I live in a small town waterfront community with two beaches and the harbour within a two minute walk of my front door. I hope to use this space as a place to post the cards and other creations that I make and hopefully some of my daughters scrapbook pages she's very creative, much more creative than I am as I don't like to scrapbook. I much prefer to create small works of art.
