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! :)
