Mini Makeover

More new stuff:) I'm having such a good time using the new colors and stamps! I'm also excited because my husband cut some wood to make a table top for me in my studio. There is this futon in my studio... which I have been wishing would disappear. HE thinks we should keep it, I want it OUT of here! So my idea for a temporary fix is to put a board across the wooden arms of the futon, making a table top. He agreed to make it for me. I rearranged my studio just a bit last night. I found a DVD storage thingy in Walmart and needed to accommodate it into the space.

DVD tower thingy from Walmart. I love being able to get to my stamp sets easier now that they are not so low to the floor. Also, This horizontal storage makes it much easier to read the titles of the sets.
Here is the temporary fix. I'm so pleased, LOVE my husband!! Love having the ribbon on a flat surface and up higher where it is easier to reach.
Very dark photo because of the window, but I think you can get the idea of that space. I moved the lamp from the corner to make room for the stamp storage. It doesn't look as good here, but functions well this way. I now have more room on my desk with the Big Shot off of it.
Next on my to-do list is to cull through all of these stamps and SELL some! I guess I will have to bite the bullet and open up a Paypal account, which scares me, cause I think you have to give them your bank account number.


  1. Love the torn paper on this one. It is a fantastic touch to a fantastic card.

  2. Carole, it's looking so great! I love that you have a window to look out while your stamping. I have a window, but all you see out it is the side of the neighbor's house next door! LOL! I also love all your eclectic furniture that you have in there. I have a closet like that, but I ended up putting moveable shelves in it. It's great that you have your computer right there where you can get to it easily.

    Oh, and your card is adorable. Love the tag look at the top.

  3. Very pretty card! Love these colors! Love the pics of your wonderful crafting space!
