Soap and Glue

Whoever said it's impossible to multi-task was seriously demented. PLUS, he didn't know any craftie.

Shabby Chic

In case you haven't known and have been wondering for the longest time but are too embarrassed to ask, "shabby chic" is simply an interior design theme of vintage with a touch of a feminine feel (hence the word "chic").

And because we all agree (or at least most of us do) that a little frill and girlyness never hurt, let's be inspired!

When a Store Closes, a Dozen Storage Opportunities Opens

Have you ever considered buying display fixtures from closing shops to use as storage spaces for your growing art stash? It's  an amazing solution to your storage problems! Not that I'd ever pray for any store to close though, that's just mean. Let's just say a store closed because it's owner decided to change businesses or move to greener pastures, okay? No wishing bad fortune for anyone. As I was saying, closing shops usually put all their furniture and fixtures on sale so everything can go. And they always sell them at bargain prices.

Here are a few of Lisa's finds..

I So Agree!



I think that has got to be my favorite quote. :) Perhaps as an excuse for my messy craft table or perhaps because it tells me I'm not the only messy craftie in the world. Surely, the one who made the quote up wasn't!

So.. inspired by that picture, here's a digi treat for everyone who can relate to it.




Click and save away, people! If you can show us a photo of what you came up with it, that would be totally cool. You can have that printed and framed just like in the photo or you can simply use it for your cards and layouts. :) For personal use only please.

How about you? Are you tidy or messy? :)

Layout Frame

A great way to frame your favorite LO and display it in your craft room for everyone to see and for some great inspiration! :)
