By Jove ~ I think I've got it!

The new name for my craft space... wait for it, wait for it... "My Happy Place!" What do ya think?! It IS my happy place! It's where I do so many things that I love; craft, create, teach, look at my computer, talk on the phone, hide from my kids...oops you didn't read that last part. Ha! ;)

I feel so blessed to finally have a room of my own to create in. Being able to spread out and work on multiple projects at a time, it's awesome!

This week I'll be posting some new journals and cards (hopefully) on my Etsy site. And here on my blog I'll be sharing pics of the Blessings On Paper January class cards we'll be making. All with fun new product from the new Occasions Mini that is just starting on January 4th!

Also there are only a couple more days to still order from the Holiday Mini Catalog! So if you've been waiting for your Christmas money to buy something special ~ don't wait any longer! ;) You can check that out on my Stampin Up! website at Just click on Shop Now in the top right hand corner and then Holiday Mini on the left hand column. So many fun and beautiful things! Also don't forget about the Filled with Love promotion. You can read more about that in the post below.

Hope you all had a VERY BLESSED CHRISTMAS!! I know I did. I am so thankful to have such a wonderful family to share the holidays with. Blessings to you and don't forget to check back with me this week for more pics and updates!

My New Craft Space

Okay, now keep in mind that this is a transformation of a garage! ;)

Originally my desk and shelves had been built into my entryway closet. So we (hubby and I) took those out and put them in the garage. I got the Jetmax storage cubes at Michael's on the Black Friday sale for my desk legs. and then it is just mounted on the wall in the back. I am going to put up some more of the Ikea towel bars above my desk to keep my tools handy.

Here is my table for all my ladies to come over and have stamp clubs. I had 6 ladies at a time this weekend and no space problems. Yeah!

Behind this curtain hides my furnace and hot water heater. Who wants to have to look at that! ;)

This may be my favorite part of the room. I picked up both of these cabinets off of I love how I have space to display all my Stampin' Up! catalogs on the white cabinet and then I have the whole brown cabinet set up as a cutting station. All my cutting, scoring, embossing and punching supplies are here. And on the side I mounted an Ikea magazine rack for all of my card base papers. Love it!
And last but NOT least! Here is my Cricut and mailing station. And this is the entry into the room. I am so happy with my new space and love how it functions and allows space for me to share with others.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a blessed day!
