It was so nice outside I took almost a 2 hour our bike ride. I did not mean to forget about the blog though and till today I did not realize I had not posted since the Patches of Pink design post. I am so sorry about that. Thank you for staying with the blog and not leaving
Anyway thought I post a card I made for my dad his birthday is Friday so this was the card I made for him. As I have said before I am always getting stuck on male cards, but with him I am kinda lucky cause he likes fishing and old cars and such so I have something to work
This was what I come up with, was trying to not go over board with the fishing theme. This was made of all scraps I had on hand. The art I have had for years and decided it was time they got used. I don't love the LO of the card, was having a mental block I just could not get Keep looking at card sketches trying to get ideas and it was just not happening. But when you need the card your making you have to get it Well thanks for looking and want to take a min to thank those who joined the blog and now are following the blog.

The theme was Valentine's day we could make anything Valentine related. I of  course I made a I love card making,  anyone who has been on my blog knows most post are cards.

Craft room/ Guest room

As promised I wanted to share the finished for now craft I say finished for now cause when I get the chance I want to get the wall paper border down, cant stand it! It was here when we bought the house, plan on getting it down one day and painting.
Anyway thought I share some pictures of the room, most of the storage has been in place for a while but have moved it around to make the room more guest friendly. Since we use this as a guest room as well it has to be were I can get a queen size air bed in place for guest. So here is the view of the room as you walk in. Its not fancy but it functions well for
Paper storage
I used the wire cubes you can get at target to make paper racks. All you have to do to make the shelves is use zip ties. The tall one is for pattern papers and the short one is for all my card stock. All my scrap paper I put in clear paper covers and I keep these on top of the card stock paper rack.

Book Case
I use the book case to hold items I use alot. I keep clear stamps in the teal bin on the bottom and my card bases I keep in the white box next to it. 8x10 paper I keep in mag holders. The plastic drawers are by Iris. I love them so much able to group small like items together. The wicker basket at the top I use to store extra supplies.

Closed storage
This used to be my pantry at our old house but since we did not need it at our new home it become craft storage, place to store those things I don't want to see out. I keep my paints and sprays and cuttle bug items and my craft sewing machine and xyron in here. Its not organized like I want it so still have a little work to do in it.

Multi media storage
I bought the two tall units  at a yard sale. Was meant for cd storage but I use it to use to store my cricut carts. I don't have to many so this works for me for now and have extra room to grow. Figure I don't need more than this since I don't buy every cart that comes out.

The desk is not my dream idea of a craft desk but it works for me. I went with a 6ft fold up table at target. Reason I went with this is I can easy take the few items I have on it and put them away and fold the table up and store it while guest are staying. And I have a small back up table to craft on in my office should I need to craft.

Rolling cart
I use this to keep things I use alot handy to me this sits right by me when I craft so if I need stamping blocks or stamp pads there right by me. I also keep tools I use alot in here.

And last but not lest the favorite part of the room, this is socks this is her hand out. The truth is, it really is the kitty's room they just let me use
Thanks for looking :)

Valentine's card

Wow Jan flew by hard to believe Valentine's day is almost here. Sorry have not posted last week but I will be honest the weather had been so wonderful I have been getting bike rides in when I can. Plus I also got my craft room done! Finally broke down the weekend before last and got a folding table. I would love to have a desk desk but since its our only guest room I have to have it were I can remove the table so we have room for an air bed. So this works for us were I can get double use from the room, I figure might as well use it we don't have over night guest over to much. So anyway that has been what I have been up to. I will post on the room really soon I already took the pictures so will do a detailed post this week. But till then after I got the room done I was inspired to So thought Id share the card I made. Trying to get Valentine's Day cards done since they will need to go out soon. I still have some more to make and the weather has turned cool again so works out Well thanks for looking and hope you had a great weekend and having a good start to the week.
