Mojo came back

My pal Eryn  of Sew Much Scrap came over yesterday to "play".  Eryn's my Stampin Up demo, and she's hosting a card buffet here tomorrow. She spent the day prepping some awesome cards for some wonderful women to make, and I got my mojo back and made a pile of cards while we hung out. Apparently I use a bunch of SU products - cuz 90% of what I used is SU!!!

 This set uses Stampin Up's "D is for Dog" stamp set and the materials are all random bits I've had forever! This is for someone who lost her grandfather and her dog within days, poor young woman.
 This I love - a paper quilted card! The paper is SU's Domestic Goddess DSP on Basic Grey. I cut a dozen 1 1/4" squares, glued them to a backing sheet, then cut with SU's Top Note die.
Happy Birthday card on crumb cake cs. Pennants are cut from SU's DSP Patterns stack with the Petite Pennants punch.

Revamp of Creative Zone - Part I

It's been a loooong time coming, but finally I'm making some changes to my little Creative Zone to make it an inviting place to play. I've done some rearranging of furniture and just finishing up organization. Here's what's been going on...

First you take a tiny room 7.5 x 10 feet that has lots of funky angles and has too much stuff everywhere:

Next you use a floor planner program to see if there is any way to make this room work better:

Next - you start moving said furniture around only to realize the accuracy on the floorplan is off. Not that I would have measured anything wrong. I blame it on the angles. 

Now start dragging furniture around, then tell your daughter and friends this is what you're doing so they can all give you hell for moving stuff yourself (I emptied the shelves first, girls - here's proof).
