Project Closet Craft Space

Hi everyone!

I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend. I know I did! Since we only have a two bedroom we have decided to turn the closet in Jude's bedroom into my craft space. It's a work in progress. Jude is currently sleeping in our room. So we decided we would finally make him a big boy room (minus) the closet. Ours is pretty big so we will put his clothes that needs to be hung up (which isn't much) in our closet.

Since the Cubes were such a great deal at Michaels this weekend. I decided to purchase some (6 to be exact) along with the table tops. 

Here are some of the steps involved in creating my craft space.

Step 1. Buy furniture  ✔️
Step 2. Rip out existing hardware in closet including the doors
Step 3. Organize and Purge (this is a scary word) my current craft supplies.
Step 4. Buy paint (haven't decided on a color)
Step 5. Buy peg board (I haven't decided if I want the whole wall or not)
Step 6. Buy new closet doors that I can lock somehow so jude can't access my stuff
Step 7. Complete Craft Space

Now this unfortunately will not happen overnight. My goal is to have it done by January 1st 2015. That sounds far away but it's actually right around the corner. I will be sharing pictures throughout the process. My first picture is just a selfie with my cubes :) 

Happy Craftiing!

Silhouette Cameo

Hi Everyone!

I am so sad today. My Silhouette Cameo seems to be busted.... It was working fine last weekend and this weekend it decides not to power on. I'm not sure what happened. I tried all the troubleshooting suggestions they have on their website and nothing.. I emailed Silhouette. I hope there will be a solution. I got my machine in November of 2011 as a gift from my Best Friend Michael. 

Has this happened to anyone else?

Becky Higgins Project Life App

Hi everyone... 

First of all I want to give HUGE PROPS to all my fellow blogger crafty mommas. I still have yet to find my groove. I get stuff done but then the following things happen...

1. I make a project but don't photograph it.
2. I photograph the project but don't download the pictures
3. I download the pictures but I don't write a post.

Do you see my dilemma here? I don't know how all of you do it... If you have tips for me please share. I really feel like I don't have enough hours in the day. 

The one thing that I have been doing is working on my project life albums. Am I upto date??? Nope but what scrapbooker is? 

So yesterday I downloaded the new Project Life app and I love it!!!! It's pretty cooler it has some of the kits in there and you can purchase additional ones and you can really create your pages on the app. I think this is great! Most of my pictures are on my phone. The app even has a photo collage tool! I love this! They will also be adding photo ordering soon! How exciting is that. So here is my week 19 layout. The great thing is that you can create the layout and save it and when you are ready pull the cards you picked and just put it together. Cool right?

Next Friday (maybe sooner) I will post a  the actual layout. I think this new tool will be extremely helpful for someone with limited time. 

I hope you enjoyed my post today!
