Progress on scraproom !!!!!

Yeah.............my handyman showed up today and the shelves are being moved over to the new scraproom (plus a few more added). I will be able to move some more stuff over tonight and then will take some more updated pictures. I still have my doubts on getting all the stuff into the smaller room. It is hard for me to make things fit when I am giving up two rooms in my house.....these kids better realize what a great person their mother/mother-in-law is !!!!!! LOL ! I only have about 3 days left of my visit with my grandbaby and then I really have to get to work on getting everything finished up for the move in November.

Full House !!!

My daughters and grandson are here............not used to such a full and noisey house. We have been doing alot of running around and fussing over who is on the computer.... LOL! Danielle goes home this afternoon and she still want to take some more pictures of Kyle. She has taken some fantastic shots so far.....here is one of my favorites.
Also this afternoon is gonna be a clean-up day. Have to get ready for the girls coming over tomorrow for scrapping. I also have to get stuff ready for a Close To My Heart gathering on Sunday and try to get alittle more work done on scraproom. There is still alot of stuff in the old scraproom (aka Kyle's new room) and I only have one more month to get things finished up. Busy....busy....busy !

Beginning of my new scraproom !!!

Okay,I have started moving stuff in and it is " LOOKIN GOOD !!!! I have come to a halt for awhile cuz my daughter Danielle arrived for a visit Friday. It is a good start and I will keep doing alittle at a time. Here are some pictures. This first one is when you walk into the room (on the far wall).
There will be two shelves on the walls above each shelf and then I have two shelves that go over the desk. This second picture is the wall to the left where the windows of the room are.
This third picture is the wall on the end of the room where the entrance door is.
This last picture is the wall on the right side of room.
As you can see, there is empty spots and I do have stuff that goes there just will take me alittle more time to get things finished up. My daughter Carey and my grandson Kyle will be here on Monday so have to go get their room ready for them.

I am a busy little bee................

I have so much going on right now, moving my scraproom into what use to be my computer room/office - which by the way is a challenge since the room is smaller than my old scraproom !!!! It is worth it because my grandson (and daughter and son-in-law) are moving in with us. I still am being crafty and I have gone bonkers on the September new releases from Gecko Galz. You guys should be on pins and needles because the stuff it fantastic !!!!! I have made 10 cards so far...lol - a little overboard but I could not just do one. Just alittle hint on what I have made " The cards are Boo-tiful" ! I have had most of three rooms all out in the den, my bedroom and bathroom so carpets could be cleaned and I am now getting stuff put back together. here's hoping I get it all done before the kids move here !

My Gecko Galz August Projects

Got some great papers and images to work with for August so got three cards done. I really love the colors on these cards. There are alot of garden and summer images but I really love the bird images so I used them. Here are my cards:

Let's Use Up Scraps............

I found this card idea on Pinterest and thought "what a great way to use up scraps" and then I got the idea of using this technique for my Christmas cards.......especially since I was going on a Crop Til You Drop day. Figured that way I wouldn't have to take tons of stuff, although only got one of the cards done - but if you read the post before this one I go into that !!! LOL I love the way this card turned out and hope it helps you other cardmakers use up your scraps !! Here is the card :

Crop Til You Drop

Yesterday was alot of fun, we went to a crop for CTMH in Seguin. Met some new ladies, did a couple make n takes and got some cards made. I went there planning on getting my Christmas cards done but didn't get to many of them done. I finished up 8 of them that I was making from a card kit I got, worked on my August Gecko Galz Design Team samples (which are almost finished - just need to add some ribbon on bling) even got my September samples worked on except for ribbon and bling. I did get one other Christmas card done, so it was a good day of cropping for me. A total of 15 cards !!! This was a nice crop and will have to do it again.
