Weekend DIY Project!

My crafty mojo has been missing in action lately due to life and kids! Had a lot going on and now slowing down with summer starting. I have been wanting a nice crafting table for quite some time now but have never thought I could afford one. So to Pinterest I went to find some inspiration and ideas. After several hours of searching, I found an idea and off to the store to pick up items needed!
It's 30" wide x 60" long!

Not too shabby! I love it.

Until next time,
Happy Stampin'

New Cutter!

Wow, I've been wanting one of these cutters for awhile now. Thanks to JoAnn Fabrics online had it on sale and then had a awesome free shipping coupon on top of that. Well, I did it. I jumped on the CutterPillarPro cutter bandwagon! Woot, Woot.

It arrived today! I was so excited when I saw my package. I so love it when the UPS delivery person brings me my packages! Outta here to go play and cut some cardstock.

To link or not to link!

To link my Cricut cartridges to my account or not to link them is what I have thinking about this past week. I want to be able to use them but not sure I want to permanently have them linked to my account. I know to each is their own.

Well, I just decided late last night that I was just gonna link them. Wow, I never knew how tedious this task will be. It's just a long process when you have a lot of cartridges. But now I know I can put all of them up and store them for more room in my craft space.

Thanks for stopping!

FSJ cardstock used: Grape Fusion, Whip Cream, Watermelon Fusion
FSJ Ink used: Watermelon Fusion

Home made organization for my craft room!

Been working on getting organized in my craft room these past few weeks & needed something better for all my thin metal dies. If I don't see them, I forget I have them so they don't get used. So, I seen some really nice magnet sheets from an awesome website but just don't have the extra money to buy these at the moment, so I decided to try and make my own. It cost me $17.50 to make 4 6x12 magnet sheets! Here is my version:

And my next home made organization idea I wanted was some kind of spinning turn table/lazy susan. I purchased 3 items to make my very own turn table/lazy susan. It cost me $6.42 to make two of these. Here is my version holding all my Tattered Angels Sprays:

And what both of them look like:

Until next time,
