So, this is what I was up to last night!
I had so much fun making this card, because it was a messy job! ahah Who doesn’t like a good ‘tie dye’?!
Anyway, it turned out a lot better than I expected for a first try!! Again, I water-colored my stamp, used some Sakuras to make the card POP.. and obviously Glittered the wings to my heart’s content. :) Hope you like the result as much as I did!
Now, I also decided to take some photos of my baby studio for you to see where all the magic happens! lol I tidied it up just for you! Yes, you might have your doubts about how the table ‘usually’ looks… especially in the middle of all that aforementioned ‘magic’… ahah:)
As you can see, I have 3 chairs at my table, so both kids can sit and craft with me, though usually, only one of them does so at a time.. so they get to sit in the chair next to the door. (Best view of the Screen mind you!!)
So, yes, a little tour? First shelf, all my twines and ribbons… second, pens (touch marker boxes, gel pens…) and cuttlebug machine and ‘luggage’ of mini embossing folders and mini die cuts. Third shelf, big embossing folders and die cuts, and all my big tools… like Memory keeper’s envelop board, Martha Stewart Mega slicer as well as her scoring board. (They sure take HEAPS of space – hence why I piled them up..) Fourth, all my one color cardstock and papers, and last shelf.. All my mags (Some of which I keep to read, and others just as cute paper for embellishments and such.. like in the first Christmas card ‘fairy Christmas’.. the Fushia pink for the tag came from an Oprah Mag!)
Now, on the table.. my laptop and my scan n cut, sakuras, black inks, etc.. and on the other side.. is where all the bling hides:) This photos gives you a small apercu
SO, first shelf, buttons, baby punches, and baby paper pads.. Second shelf, Big punches & Stamps. Third shelf, BLING & inks & GLITTER!! ahah You can’t really see them on the photo, I think.. but in my red shinny box, I have HEAPS of big glitter tubes.. and against the wall, Matt got me a big Martha Stewart glitter set (all called after precious stones!! SOOOO Beautiful!!). Fourth shelf, BIG paper pads with beautiful designs:)) And little tools of the trade.. Fifth shelf – kid shelf.. papers, the kids can use, red bucket of ‘stuff’.
Okay, ALSO.. under the screen.. you can see I have 6 big drawers.. Most of them have arty ‘stuff’ in them.. like one is FULL of paper/cardstock embellishments… oh and another, my water color pencils, pastels, etc. So, they are ALL full too.. and above my printer are my pretty beads:)
Finally, you do NOT want to know what’s going on in my closet behind me. It shall remain a MYSTERY forever.
Anyway, ahah:) There you go. Now you know where I spend every FREE minute of my day. When I’m not watching Fringe on my screen these days.. I’m watching my personal ‘Art Channel’.. of youtube videos on Everything and Anything Art related… or music videos:)
Life is good, am I right?!
Love you all!! And thanks for coming over!
