Re-doing the Office Part- Due

Ok, Put in my work surface...starting putting up a shelf and starting filling book shelves.  I am beginning to wonder where the rest is going to go....hmmmm

This takes it from bare floor - to stained - to urethane

Never in one place too long am I ?

Today I started a beautiful altered vintage inspired vest that I am hoping I will have done in the next day or two to show off.  I am repacking and seeing things that were meant to be paired with something...and then I have been finding the OTHER thing  (This is not something that happens too often for me, so its exciting)  Which means that a few things have joined forces to be new projects *they are screaming experiment*  I still say project and I am in control of the scissors.  They need to be finished soon...because...... the

Floor in my office is going to be stained tomorrow night and then polyurethane before bed...then only one day away from moving back in.

I really started a different thought process for organizing when I moved into the temp studio.  I like the direction that I was going, so I will continue with more of the same.  I am hoping to share some ideas for how I have been able to put together what I think will be a beautiful space on not a champagne budget, not even a beer budget...more like a store brand single soda budget.

Tomorrow I will post the before.....the stained....and the the urethane pics.

Happy National Scrapbook Day !!

Thanks for taking the time to stop by today....I know you are busy with all the fun Scrapping today!
To celebrate...if you go to my ArtFire store...and type in Chaos you can get 20% off all weekend!!
There is a special post on the Scrap N' Art blog today...have you been there yet?
I know you have already seen the new magazine format!  I love it!!!!
It is so easy to find just what you are looking for. 
It is updated monthly (and sometimes there are extras during the month)
The mini-Steampunk issue is fabulous!

You know I am also going to tell you to check out the Gauche Alchemy blog.
Sooo many cool projects are up there.  We have had some great guest designers lately.

Then you know to stop by and check out Bombshell Stamps right?

Thought I would share a few previous layouts from the past year. 
I will keep you in suspense about my new projects.  Then off you go to see more...

Sometimes you just have to have a "home" day

Having a "home" day today, not going to the studio.
Made lunch, clothes are hanging on the line, Banana Oatmeal bread in the oven.
Finishing up some work on the computer with the windows open.
Not too shabby.

The girls are having a Mediterranean salad for lunch.
Israeli couscous, salami, mozzarella, marinated mushrooms and red peppers, cherry peppers, fresh basil, olives and olive oil topped with Cappicola.

Man do I wish I was having some of this!

Welcome to my new Space....1st look

I thought I would start my new "craft life" by sharing some of my new space with you.
I have never been the most organized person, but I am REALLY trying.
So as I unpack and set up I am hoping to put things up in an organized fashion.
I started today by making containers for some of the most used items.
I still love that great Marah Johnson tattoo paper!
Of course I had to use Thickers for the word THICKERS!!
I also used them for the pencils container.

Of course in this picture you can see empty space between items...and you know it is not staying that way!

Here is the more realistic picture.

Maybe by posting pics as I go....I will feel obligated to keep it neat!
That is my hope.  Baby steps!

I'm back again I know ya'all missed me (lyrics by by Kas)

I thought I would start my new "craft life" by sharing some of my new space with you.

I will start with the sign on my door. (it is the inside door....too tempting to pull on little things outside)
but check it out on the Gauche Alchemy blog...
Each day I will try to show you some of my funky ways of organizing and some projects I have going.

So much to say....

Is life beyond crazy...or what.  There is no way to catch up on my this will be my new start.

I start crafting in my new space this weekend !!! All painted ...all filled (and more).

Thus begins the journey.

My work office and art office share a space at EarthDust Studio.  The workspace for Art Loves Chaos FactoryWerks and Studio along with Little Lost Bohemian Art and Altered Boutique.

PRETTY EXCITING!!  I am hoping to start sharing photos next week.  With all good there of course comes bad.  I asked to be on hiatus from Bombshell Stamps and Gauche Alchemy.  That just about KILLED ME !!!

I will start doing some Gauche stuff this week and hopefully at some point be able do some work for Bombshell stamps again (because I UBER UBER love them)

Also working on some projects for Scrap N' Art magazine and the team there couldn't be ANY BETTER!!

There will be some big changes on this blog and a lot more projects to be shared!  There will also be alot of art and altered items in the ArtFire store now instead of just scrapbook and art supplies.

We are having a big local sale so next weekend the store will be down, but if you stop by this week and enter in BIGMOVE as a coupon will get 20% off your purchase.
