i took down the big fence that seperated most of my scrap storage from the rest of the playroom (you can see it in pics here) while it was wonderfully effective at keeping little hands out of my supplies, it was a hassle to get to most of my storage - AND it became a deposit spot for all sorts of junk. so, out it went. and now the littlest is obsessed with pulling my stool over and stacking things on my desk. he's been fairly good about respecting my things, but i realized earlier that one of my studio calico bird stamps has gone missing.. and i'm pretty sure i know who lost it. (and speaking of studio calico & stamps, there will be a new pink slip list in the newsletter tonight... and some of my faves are retiring. i'll have to give them a grand send off speech tomorrow, along with my june kit sneaks).
(supplies : chip letters - making memories, chip hearts & brads - american crafts, blue, red & yellow pp - october afternoon, gray overlay - hambly, hexagon, map, green floral, grey & "s" pp - studio calico, fabrips - studio calico, label stickers - studio calico & october afternoon, punches - fiskars, tiny attacher - tim holtz, journal lines stamp - studio calico, ink - pumice distress)
this page was up on the studio calico blog last week, along with a writeup on how i got from an inspiration piece to this finished project. it was fun to take the time to think about how i work and break it down into steps - though it makes me realize that i have some odd work habits. ;)
this set of cards & matching envelopes went up on the fiskars site earlier this week. i'm trying to get back into the habit of making cards, and trying to remember that they don't have to be rocket science - a simple design can go a long way.
also - one of my fave pages of me + the boys was featured over on the scrapbook & cards today blog last week, along with some other beautiful mother's day projects. i took an IOU on a mother's day pic this year - i didn't shower till right before we left for the ball field - i need it to stop raining so we can get a photo of me + the boys. =)
speaking of the rain.... while i have to say that i enjoyed the first couple nights of rained out baseball, i'm paying for it now. because practices have been pushed back and rescheduled and now the next couple evenings are looking rather complicated. i'm off to ponder when and what we're going to have for dinner tonight.. happy thursday!
ps : lorie just posted that there are more knick knack add-ons from may available - they found a box that didn't get sold. this was my fave add-one - love that cloud stamp, love the color scheme, and those felt stars are too cool! check it out if you missed it the first time. =)
