Heart 2 Heart challenges blog wants to see your space and how you organize your goods. I think I have collected some good ideas along this journey and have a few ideas of my own to share! So I am jumping in maybe I will win a prize!!

Heres the main wall of my studio its to the left when you walk in the room. I cant rave enough about the stor n Style cubes! The wall ledges hold recycled candle jars full of ribbons and buttons. Mason jars hold small chip board, tags, paper and silk flowers and spiral clips.

Heres my 12 x 12 paper storage. I purchased these off of ebay from Poor Rays. Ray has since retired. But Stamper Storage is selling some very similar.

Heres my stamp and marker storage. This master piece was purchased from Stamper Storage

Heres my revamped closet! You can read about that adventure HERE

Heres the top shelves of my closet. Each photo box holds cards for different occasions. My ribbon holders made out of rain gutters!

These locker bins hold my Close to my Heart stamp sets!

Heres where I store my scraps, each drawer holds a color, blues, pinks etc. I also store, scissors, tapes, acrylic blocks, envelopes diecuts, B/T scraps. I have a things to scrap drawer for momentos, ticket stubs, programs etc. I have a drawer for embellishments, a sewing drawer for floss, thread needles etc. You get the gist I am sure.

On top of these two units sit these goodies!

I hope you like the tour!

Another book!

I have been busy with cards that are due ASAP, I cant share them just yet. I have this ditty to share. I have been following Patters ABC scripture challenges for about 2 years and this year deceided to join in, i am not sure if I will create the pages but I will start with writing what I study in my journal.

I used one of Girl Loft kits to create the book cover including the alphabets!

I received a super cute card from my friend Jen Rubio at Jens Jewel Box She created some faux stitching around her card and I fell hard for the technique and have used it on a few cards and such!! I need to write her and tell how much I liked the look.

As you know from previous postings I have done some organizing and remodeling, I believe it has caused my MOJO to come back. I guess its true what they say, that when things are disorganized and messy it blocks the creative flow (although when I turn around I have a mound of woodie to organize and store) I didnt want to leave the room!! Nice to be back in the game!!

This was my closet, a mess right? Well I guess it wasnt that bad, it needed to be organized. Things were stacked way high with thing after thing. I was running out of room to store things.

The first shelve held all my CTMH woodies, the second shelve held my SU woodies. The third shelve held photo boxes 6 to be exact, the bottom shelve held some albums and a few more photo boxes. I had altered projects, containers sitting around on the stamps. The back corner of the closet held more photo boxes, some baskets etc.

Here's my rolling carts full of my individual wood stamps. The cart on the left has 7drawers of stamps and the cart on the right had 5 drawers of stamps. The 2 bottom drawers on each cart held punches, alterables, and misc items. On the top of the carts you can see my color binders, stamp inventory binder, E size acrylix sets binder and a binder for unmounted sets from various companies and Containers. On the floor in front of these carts was bags of cards, scraps, and magazine holders. See Lots of stuff every where.

So I went to Target ( one of my fav places to hang out, literally snack on pop corn while you shop or browse hanging out) and purchased these super cool itso stackable cubes. They were on sale for $7.99, never seen them that low before. There plastic and can be locked to together 3 cubes high. They can be cleaned using a damp cloth and they can hold cubes or baskets. You can purchase a load of things to organize them with, drawers, doors, shelves, bins etc. AWESOME!

I made my way over to Home Depot to purchase some wood to make 2 shelves to hold my ind. wood stamps. I have always wanted a stamp wall!!! Take a look.....

Heres the far end of the closet, I intend to take the closet doors off so I can look at all this FABULOUSNESS while I work!

I have to say that 2 shelves for my stamps is not even close to being enough, and I really want a much bigger or longer stamp wall. But I am so happy with it!! I also added a tension curtain rod to hold my punches!! $6.99!! How about those itso cubes, looking good arent they? There are 2 more cubes to the left of the pink and orange tubs, one has a door.

Okay heres what I am left with to organize, so stayed tuned!

I have a project to share so come back tomorrow!

Hello blogging friends!!

I have finally downloaded some of my creations. Not much going on with me I went back to work on Monday, wasnt quite ready. I fully enjoyed and relaxed on my winter break. Shamefully I didnt create much, I had other things on my plate. One being alot of reading and studying.

I created this little book to write (some of) my daily scriptures in. I have many that I read daily and wanted a go to book where they would be ready and waiting. I used my NEW spellbinder die to make the label. I just adore it!!!

Crafters meet my card....

Are these not the perfect birthday colors? So cheery, bright and birthday festive!!!
What about the card pattern? Its my favorite from the Whishes pattern book, its called name plate.I have used it before HERE and HERE. This card has so many of my favorites, bling, glitter, ribbon and 3D images. How about that faux stitching

I hope your day was GRAND, I just kicked back today. Acutally when I think back I did alot of cooking. I slept in until 11 AM(I really like to sleep in)and then made a late breakfast and then about 4 PM I started my annual New Years Day dinner. Black eye peas that are so good it should be a crime to taste that good!!! along with chicken, rice, green beans and pumpkin pie crunch. I am pooped and stuffed!!

Until next week
