Craft Room

Yesterday was move in day.  My step son, his wife and baby Ava came to live with us for 6 months. I have been very busy getting the basement ready for them. The basement is a walk out, finished off and very nice basement, but my crafts had taken over most of it.

Here is a video that will show you what I have been up to. 
This is all most my craft room. Three to four week from now shelves and cabinets will arrive. Then more sorting and arranging. I am really enjoying how it is right now.

Thanks for stopping and I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

Raisin Boat Challenge #33

Oh I am a very bad blogger. Sorry!! But I am here today because it is time to join another challenge at Raisin Boat. It is Challenge #33 and the theme is Moms and Dads.  Now I know you want to make a card for you Mom for Mother's Day and your Dad for Father's Day. Both of my parents are gone so I made Mother's Day cards for my daughter in laws. See there are many ways to join the challenge. You could win a free set from Raisin Boat.   You could make a scrapbook page, an art journal page, or both, because you can enter as often as you like.

Use any set you have (you don't have to limit your entry to Raisin Boat stamps), but if you DO use a Raisin Boat stamp set, it will count as two entries. That gives you twice the chance to win a FREE stamp set of your choice!  Remember, "You can enter as often as you like."

You can either buy  OR rent Raisin Boat sets -- no guilt in using a set for just one project, such as this challenge. They have an amazing collection of stamps and many that can be used for this theme. 

Here is the cards I created for my daughter in laws.
I used Raisin Boat sets Springtime Love and Formal Phrases. These are two sets I do love. 

And here is the video on how I created this card.

Upcoming Challenges for 2015 to help you get the perfect sets in your rental Pick List if you are a member:

April: Moms and/or Dads -- Current Challenge
