The Party of the Year!
'Where Bloggers Create II' was started by
Karen Valentine over at My Desert Cottage
and this year, we have over 450 guests
participating, so I am just ONE on
the guest list...make sure you stop by
her blog, check out the guest list
and start your visits!
While most other bloggers may share
their entire studios with you,
I will be sharing the favorite parts
of my creative space with you.
If you make it through this post all the way
to the end, I will invite you to participate in
my PARTY GIVEAWAY!
So here we go.....
All in all, this is why it's difficult to have a good run at
any one project! This is Lucy, my 16 year old
sweetheart who keeps me company quite often : )
Much of my inspiration comes from paper crafting
magazines. This is just a 'smidge' of a sampling
of my British magazines. Those who follow my blog
know that I am a magazine fanatic!
So believe me when I tell you that this doesn't begin to
cover the amount of 'inspiration' I can find on a
There are two things in my little creative space that I can
never have too much of
I am creating quite a little collection of these as well!
I can't fit them all on one shelf at the moment,
but I think you get the idea : )
Love my Martha Stewart punches from EK Success.
One of my favorite shelves is the top one with a
variety of cards, gifts and autographs from some
pretty 'famous' papercrafters and artists.
This shelf and the inspiration board house a few more
handcrafted cards from my friends as well as baskets
of things I 'just can't live without'.
Within easy are the tools that I use on an everyday basis.
And here is my new favorite tool...
My new paper distressor. No more using my
little hand tools which eventually get dull. You can
run a whole batch of cardstock, chipboard and more
through this baby and in one fell swoop...
Well, you get the picture : )
One other small collection I have are these fabby
chunky books. I use them for altered items and for
wonderful retro images on my cards. I always manage
to find them in the bargain book section of my
favorite store...say it with me...
Barnes & Noble.
I decided to leave you with a few of my favorite things.
Now you may be asking yourself...
Isn't she a stamper?
Where are all her stamps?
Well..if you look hard in a few of the photos, you will
see them all lined up in a few baskets, but those are just
my clear or unmounted sets. I have a boatload of
old-school wood mounted stamps
that I will never part with, but to be honest, I just did not
have the time or fortitude to organize them in a
presentable way for you : )
So maybe next time, huh?!
So you made it to the end!
