Scraproom Remodel

Sometime back Jeff and I ripped the carpet out of my scraproom and finally my whining about getting a floor back in there paid off. So off to Home Depot we went and picked out some click and lock laminate (nothing fancy but better then concrete).

I got to work and emptied the entire room which was slightly shocking to Jeff in terms of how much stuff I had in there.

We scraped and vacuumed and prepped the floor, then we were ready to get started. We laid down the underlayment and then got to work on the floor.

What we figured out is that putting a new floor down, also means putting new trim up (and painting it, which also means painting the whole room (including the ceiling and the door) and adding a new hardware to the door (bye-bye gold door knob).

After a couple of weekends we were done and I was able to move all my scrap goodies back in.

NEXT UP - a trip to Ikea for a storage solution and new workspace (can you say Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday?) Then it will be totally finished and I will be one happy scrapper!

Technique Tags

Well after some "Mercedes" like production I was able to finish 5 sets of technique tags for the scrap weekend. I still have about 10 more to go for all my other scrappy friends who have yet to get theirs.

Here is a shot of the final product. They are great to just keep around especially for those with girls and anyone else wanting to add flowers to their pages.

Scrapweekend was eventful if nothing else - poor Crystal had an allergic reaction to something so we spend Saturday late night/early Sunday morning in the ER (boo!) and poor Aunt Barb got hit in the church parking lot Sunday morning :-/. Well here's to our next weekend where hopefully we will have a little more fun and get a little more done!

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend and here's to a homemade create holiday season!

P.S. Collage made at - my new favorite photo site, I see an upgrade to premium in my near future for a mere $24.95 with endless photo editing possibilities how can I resist?!

Creativity in Progress

As I mentioned I have been wanting to put together a cool little gift for my scrappy friends so I am working diligently to get them done before our scrap weekend in November. Also on the list for this weekend - ordering photos for that same weekend. Can't wait to actually sit down and create some more!
