The saying is also from doodle pantry. It is from another set thought. I just felt it fit.
I have also decided to try once again to join the design team. I love her images and would love a chance to
be part of her wonderful team. I the chances are a long shot but hey maybe the third time is the charm.
Wish me luck.

New Craft Area

      I have been so busy between work and creating cards. My most favorite thing to do. I had a bunch of cards made and was beginning to drown in them. So I made up packets of 20 and took them to work. Well they were such a big hit I have had several ask for more. So I have been busy working on them.

     I also just moved in to a new craft room my honey has made for me. We had a living room & family room. We never use the living room so he added a wall and door so now I have moved out of the family room and in to my own space. The pictures above are the space I was in before. Abour 5 feet wide by 5 feet long. Very narrow.
These show the space befor he made the wall and added all my stuff to the new space.Look at those wonderful windows in the front. I love all the light I get in here. Befor I didnt get any sun light in my space.

And these show my room done. Isn't he a love. I just love all the extra space and light. I can get so much more done in here and dont have to worry about the mess I leave if I have to stop in the middle of something. 
My  Husband made these cabinets years ago for part of an entertainment center. He was going to get rid of of them till I claimed them for my crafts. They are big and have lots of room for lots of stuff. well thats it for my room. Hope you have enjoyed it.
