I am so sorry for the TERRIBLE layout of this blog! It was actually pretty nice but one day everything went all amuck ??? No clue what happened....and since I don't really post here anymore I haven't bothered to figure it out. SORRY!!!

My Space...aka: My sofa is here somewhere!? aka: Keeping it Real
I like to call this the:
"Me doing my part to make all husbands of the world appreciate their wives tour"
... Show them! They just THOUGHT you were bad!...
*** WARNING! This tour is not for the faint of heart!
MESSY, Real Life, AHEAD! ***
And, NO! I am NOT a hoarder! ... don't send that show my name! ... I just LOVE tools and every color of every thing I buy, whatever it is.
The computer room:
This is a picture of my computer keyboard/mouse area... SEE I TOLD YOU I have no mouse space!
And, this is just the side of the room I was willing to show you! You can see that my vinyl cutter takes up more than it's share of my desk!
Now, let's move on, to the die cut room....
My brother installed the slat board on three walls of this room for me, then we used the left over scrap pieces in closets and the garage....LOVE MY WALLS! It is sold by the panel, just look under "store displays" in your local yellow pages. He also installed the pre-fab "kitchen counter" from the home improvement store for me...I love my brother!
the other direction... some of my dies (I use to sell die cuts before everyone could do it themselves)
from the back side (paper, you can never have too much paper!)
You can probably tell that I LOVE, and spend a lot, on good storage...I just have a problem putting things back in "their place"
Now, to the "Can't-find-anywhere-else-to-put-it-sunroom."
Paper cutter, spiral binder, embroidery hooper thingy and ribbon, lots of ribbon, (I have GOT to find a better way to keep the ribbon! there is just too much of it. ... See My Solution Here) OH! and for those of you wondering about the tree in the corner. That was a gift from some dear friends. I mentioned that I thought it was cute and they surprised me with it a few days later. It is a bear cub climbing a tree, not a bare Christmas tree..but a bear in a tree.
jewelry and button making stuff ... hummm...I NEED LABELS! that would at least make it appear to be more organized.
OH! and we can't leave out the Embroidery section of the room!
Turn around and you can see my dining room... ever ready for the impromptu card making gathering.
Just so you know, this is what I was willing to show you! No way you are seeing behind the closed doors where everything else is!!! OK here is one more inside a walk-in closet because it has scrap slat board...storage for my SU! stamp wheels..
The rest of the walls (and floor) are shelves of the regular stamps, once in alphabetical order. Don't let the empty shelves fool ya, that's what is in the boxes on the floor!... and more are at my feet right now being scanned and being photographed for the big sale!!! .... after all I have to make room for my "next thing"!
My whole house may be messy but I will say this ...I haven't met a crafter yet that doesn't want to come spend a day digging to see what other treasures are buried within! And my nieces LOVE it here! We never have to go anywhere else for entertainment :-)
