Craftroom Closet Makeover

Hi Everyone,
Happy Halloween,
Ethan will be getting dressed this morning for his school parade. I can't wait to see him as a 1950's greaser with his hair slicked...

Well Friday we got SNOW! already, it's very unusual for us to have snow this early. Flurries yes, but not 7 inches. At least it didn't stick to much to the streets and it's melted almost is some areas.

I've been waiting for a snow day to take everything out of my closet and paint it, then put up more shelving.

Here's what it looked like before.

I had five shelves and a cube organizer....
as you can see from the white sections on the walls, whoever owned the house before us, painted around the closet shelving that was in there. We took that down a while ago and added shelves. 

Now here's what it looks like
I painted the closet the same color as my room. Only took about an hour or so.
Scott did a little measuring and discovered that I could add shelving to the side wall, so now I have 10 shelves and was able to move tons of stuff from my room that I don't use with my everyday crafting to the closet. 

I was also able to add my JetMax cubes that I use for my Sizzix dies. 

Here's a better picture of the side wall.

Hope you have a great day :)

I played with the Shape-up Snowman die again....Click HERE to see yesterday's Stampin' On Friday video using the same die I used to make this card.

Have a great day...I'm headed to our library store at the mall today. It's Mall-oween and we're handing out goodies to kids that come trick or treating at the store.
Enjoy the weekend :)

Stampin' On Friday (10/28/11) Warmest Winter Wishes

Hi Everyone, 
Boy is it cold here in NEPA. There is talk of some snow for tomorrow. I think in my area it's just a few flurries, but still it's snow! With that I just had to make a snowman card using the new Shape-Up stamp and die from PTI. I hear this die is out of stock, but they'll get them back in stock :)

Now for today's video.

Card Organizer Box

Hi Everyone,
I haven't had a chance since last week to craft :(

I do have something to share with you today :) A few weeks ago I was looking through my completed cards and couldn't find a card I had made for someone (I did eventually find it). I was so frustrated and thought I better get these cards organized.

I don't have tons of cards pre-made because I generally give them as soon as I make them, but for the cards I do have in my stash...

I took one of my Ikea boxes and made dividers for each of the type of cards I have pre-made.

I used "From my Kitchen" Cricut cartridge to make the dividers. I don't have the exact dimensions, but basically I measured the width and depth of the box and used my Gypsy to cut them.

Good news is my Paper Trey Ink order is coming today. Maybe a haul video for you tomorrow :)

CWC (10/24/11 Card Organizer and video

Happy Monday,
Today's project is a card organizer I made for my dad. Since dad is in a wheelchair he can't get out and get cards for holidays and special occasions and he's always asking me to make him cards that he can give to my mom. I thought I would make him a book that would hold a whole year's worth of cards. Now I just need to make the cards :)

Enjoy today's video:
