Organization Update

My husband made the embellishment shelves I wanted, and they turned out great.  There is a 12 foot section of wall in my scrapbook room that was blank and I've been saving it for shelves.

And here is the embellishment wall that was added.  I love that I can see all my flowers, buttons and scrap ribbon and just grab the items I need.

He also made a topic bin for me.  I purchased an art bin from the local office supply store.  He took the dimensions of the bin and made this beautiful Copic sketch marker holder.  Umm, yes, I love this.  It can lay flat or on its side while you are using them.  The lid clips securely on and has side handles that snap over the lid to make a more secure latch.  It has 374 slots which is more than enough for all the Sketch markers and a few extra slots for Molotov pens and black liner pens.

I am a lucky girl!  


A Little Community Celebration

I love coloring.  I love my scrapbook room.  And I love this gal named Alyce Keegan over at Kit and Clowder.  What a great little community she has put together.  She did an Academy Awards night and asked her Facebook members to put together any art project that displays what Kit and Clowder means to us personally.

What I love about this community is that everyone is so creative and more importantly, so positive towards one another.  It truly does inspire me to keep crafting and share my projects with the group.  And even though the community is 6000 members, it promotes everyone to be an individual and to soar in what they love to do.  It has been a fun place to meet new friends while doing something I truly enjoy.  Thank you so much Alyce for your vision and your truly unwavering commitment to the group.  As a side note, you really do need to sleep!  :-)

The stamp is called Show Girls from Lost Coast Design.   I colored one of the girls to symbolize each of us as individuals even though we are part of a group of so many talented women.

Copic colors used with the middle dancing girl:

The word "Inspire" is a rub-on that I bought a long time ago and the "Friends & Fun" rubber stamp is a $1 stamp that came from a bin some time ago.

Sexy Valentine

I've been a little busy with the installation of my new shelves with embellishments.  My husband is such a carpenter and he has been getting my custom embellishment shelves installed for me.  Needless to say my scrap room has been a little messy, but it was so worth it!

Below is the card for my hubby!  He deserves a little "sexy" in his life.  Don't you think?  We are going to spend the night away from home for Valentine's day, and I wanted to make sure I had a card for him on our get-a-way.

The image is Holy Shirt from Slinky Tart.  She's so cute and sexy!  I picked her because she has short hair like me.  :-)  I hope I did her justice with the coloring.
