Canvas for the IPhone

Hey everyone! Things have been crazy busy around here. I guess that's just the way summers from here on out are going to go. Last weekend I was in Cincinnati with Taylored Expressions for the Stampaway Rubber Stamping Convention and we stayed busy the entire day and a half of the show. It was mad busy but I really enjoyed it. If you were able to stop by and chat with me, I hope you leave a comment...would love to hear from you!! :)

Also, I came home last Sunday and tackled the disaster area known as my office/craft room. I really think that I was on the verge of becoming a hoarder.  It, literally, took me 4 FULL days to purge everything that I haven't let go of over the course of 5+ years.  And then to organize...whoa.  I think I spent a lot of time just standing there scratching my head trying to figure out how to keep things organized.  I'm still not finished, but I'll post a couple before/after photos at the end of my post just for funsies. 


But onto today's crafty thing to share!!  I created a holder for my IPhone  (but it certainly can be used for placement of other nick nacks that you so choose) using the new Canvas Valise from Maya Road. This was a project that I created for CHA this past summer and definitely one of my favorites!  You can see more photos and more details over on the Maya Road blog post HERE.  I also had to create a card with one of the new sets, Blue Ribbon Sentiments.  


I thought this would be a fun card to have on hand for my precious boy that starts 2nd grade next week.  Like I said, more photos and closeups over on the Maya Road blog.
Now, are you ready to see the disaster known as my office/craft room?  The before photos are taken with my phone, so forgive the lack of high quality.  I'm holding out for the iPhone 5 next month. :)


This was my work space.  It was an organized mess, but somehow I was able to maneuver my way around.  


And the after with an upcoming project on my desk ready for me to tackle.  


And this was a corner of my office.  Many of my floor space you couldn't even walk on.  


You can actually see some carpet, LOL!!!  I also added an Ikea bookcase in my closet for some extra storage.

Ok, now I actually need to attack some of my crafting projects this weekend...the big dilemma now will be if I can actually find everything I've put away!  I start an Anatomy class this coming Monday so I want to get as much done before MY school starts!!  Have a great weekend crafting buddies! :)
