Babies and the Bermuda Triangle ...

I KNEW that would get your attention!! First of all, this is a baby announcement I did for my nephew's new baby daughter, Vivian (don't you just LOVE that name??). I made 26 of these "babies" over the weekend. It was sooo fun to be able to channel my energy into something creative (and I hafta admit I was inspired, once again, by a card I saw SOMEwhere on Pinterest ... no idea where, or who made it ... I'm really gonna have to start paying attention ... so if this looks like something YOU made, please let me know and I'll give ya some credit!) I seriously love me that little stocking punch! Just trimmed it down at the top to create booties. Soooo sad that it's not going to be carried over into the new big catalog this year ... sigh ...

Stamps: Stitched Stockings, Petitie Pairs
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride, Whisper White
Ink: Bravo Burgundy, Whisper White
Accessories: Designer Frames Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Spellbinders Small Scallop Oval Nestabilities Die, Ovals Bigz Die, Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Eyelet Border Punch, Small Oval Punch, Blushing Bride Pleated Satin Ribbon, Whisper White Embossing Powder, Whisper White Baker's Twine

Smiley from millan.netNow, on to the Bermuda Triangle (aka my stamp/craft room)!! This is seriously how this place has looked for the past two months (well, it didn't start out THIS bad, but it was a cumulative effort, for sure!)! It was really kinda depressing ... I usually try to keep my room relatively clean in between projects so that it I don't hafta start a project by cleaning up! Scary, isn't it??? It took me half the day, even WITH the aid of a shovel!!


And here it is AFTER!! Ahhhhhhhh, THAT'S better!! I was very proud of myself while I made those baby announcements, too! I used the "clean-as-you-go" method It really does work surprisingly well, so why don't I ALWAYS do that??? I guess it is because sometimes Creative Genius takes over!!


OH!! I almost FORGOT!!! Here is a link to the Retirement List (posted at midnight between Saturday and Sunday). It's a BIGGUN!!

I love your card, Wendy. So pretty and just adorable. The sentiment isn't on Cupcake Stamp. Is it possible that was a mispring? Also, did you cut out the designer frame oval after embossing it?

Oh Wendy, I am LOL, because that is how my room seems to look most days, except that it is much smaller-therefore, it looks much worse! :) So glad you found your way out! Maybe you could come help me find a shovel-:)

Yay! I'm glad I got to see the cards! They are so cute!!! And I'm glad someone else's room is messy! Mine's stressing me out right now! I need to clean it up like yours all spic and span!!!!

My friend and I have the same problem. Love it neat, but then it gets to be a mess of cut paper, this and that, then it's clean up day. Oh well, as long as the ideas keep coming. Edna

Hi Wendy, I loved your card. The stamping room before picture, looks like mine just about all the time! I feel organized people are just too lazy to look for things. ha ha! So glad that your two moms are on the mend, by the grace of God. They are in my prayers daily! Thank you for all your wonderful ideas! God Bless!

LOVE your card! I think you should frame this one. I have a similar card pinned under SU. I think it came from keepstamping.com. Don't you just love Pinterest? You got me hooked!

Your room looks so beautiful! Well done!
Hugs!

First, stunning card which I am totally going to CASE and credit to you! Second, holy cow, great job on hoovering your craft room! You have an amazing space!

Love your card...the 'booties' are adorable! TFS! Your craft room looks like probably most of ours when we are in the creating mode! Yes, easier in some ways to clean as you go, but that can also get in the way....looks great now!
