Late Scrappin' Sunday

For Scrappin' Sunday we share our "ta-da's" and our "to-do's" to keep us motivated each week. I don't always participate, but it does keep me very well organized and prepared, you should join me.

My TA-DA for this week is one of the Valentine Gifts I have been working on, but I also wanted to share photos of my new scrap space since I moved! :)

It's in my bedroom now and I am loving it! Since it's always in my face it makes me want to get more done. Previously it was in my garage and I only got to the table once or twice in an entire year.

This is the bedside view...

And at the foot of the bed is this!...

Since we moved to a place that doesn't have as much storage space I decided to let go of my shelving unit and share my desk with my hubby for his computer. It's working out very well so far.

This is my side of the desk...

With my drawers, my totes and my MacBook Pro (bottom-left). My scrap-paper tub, train-case, albums, paper and memories (below). My altered Clipboard, my cardstock bin, my baskets of cards, tools, embellishments, supplies and photos (middle). And my shelving (up above)...

This is my husbands side of the desk...
(Yes hunny - sorry you only get a third not half.) That's his computer crammed on there and that giant bookcase is mostly his as well... other than all the pictures in frames :).

And this is my what I really meant to share...
One of the Valentine Gift's I am making. It's a little circle tin with tea-lite candles in it.


I used Close to My Heart paper and one of their stamp sets. I also used their liquid glass glue and some glitter for the shinnies :).


I was proud of my little double-bow :) Part sheer - part gross-grain.


And my tea-lites fit perfect because I used some that were bigger than others and I put a small glass holder in the middle... they smelled good too :)...


Now onto my running TO-DO list...
This is the last one I had on here from back in June - I will add to it...
  1. Pick a date for a Close to My Heart party??? This party was suposed to be planned 7 months ago.
  2. Hang ledge for black and white photos in my room. Funny I did this again since moving.
  3. Hang my new Ikea lighthouse photo. And this too :)
I got all my old ones done (even twice over) and didn't even know it :) That makes me happy!
  1. Finish altering Starbucks frappuccino Box.
  2. Alter cardboard heart box.
  3. Alter Hershey's miniatures.
  4. Make Valentine cards with my new stamp sets.
  5. Alter matchbook notebooks.
  6. Alter journal.
  7. Count RSVPs and...
  8. ...plan Close to My Heart order out for Workshop on the 6th!
  9. Pack for Open House Boutique this Saturday!!!
Wow I have a lot to do, but it's nice to see it all laid out! Pray for me...

Great space! Nice that your husband will share some space with you & you have a room large enough for it. Still love your jars & baskets that hold things. Cute tin! Hope you have a great week checking off your list :) And I think you'll get to your scrap more than twice this year. ;)
