The baseboards should be going in today which means I can start moving stuff back into the room this week! My island and shelves will not be done for a while, but I will atleast be able to work on my folding table until I get them!
Last week Mom, Amanda, Amanda's friend Jess and I all got together at Mom and Dad's to work on Christmas cards. When I got there I still was not sure what I wanted to do. I knew that I wanted to use a SU stamp set (Snow Swirled) that Amanda had. And I knew that I wanted to use the PTI colors Pure Poppy and Ripe Avocado. But beyond that I had no clue. I played around and ended up with this. I love it!
This is really on white (also PTI) though it looks like a light blue in this picture. I also used the cuttlebug swirled embossing folder, PTI Pure Poppy Saddle stitched ribbon and stickles!
Ok.. the past week I have been boxing up my craft room and the girls' playroom in preparation for the remodel and room swap that will occur next week. My craft room is moving into the bigger "family room" and the playroom is being moved into the third bedroom (both rooms are in the basement). The *new* craft room will have laminate wood floors and custom shelves and craft island. My Dad and BIL are making my sister and I HUGE (6' x 3') craft islands! Though I will not get the island and shelves until sometime in December, the room will be done before Thanksgiving. Then I can start to create again!
I have uploaded some layouts into my Scrapbook gallery, and am working on tracking down the manufacturers. I have just recently started recording manufacturers while I am working on my projects, so most of my pages do not have that information on them.
Ok here are some before pictures of my old craft room. (and the post above has been saved since this is where I lost it last time!)
While this room is always messy, I had already started boxing things up which is why there is so much stuff on the floor.
I made this layout last weekend but finally took a picture of it!
All about the yellow. The journaling reads: Megan's favorite color is yellow. She proudly announces it anytime she sees something yellow. This outfit was yellow, had a spinny skirt and had "jewels" on the top. Definitly a favorite!

I turned the sketch on it's side and moved the "dots" but other than that I stayed true.
