Pizza Tonight!

My friend came to hang out with me pretty much all day! What great treat it is when someone comes over just to chill and keep you company! It totally inpsired me to scrap a little tag while she was here to add to my new art card book I am making. Yup, another WIP for me! Just what I needed huh?

I had two days of happy mail this week! First came a package from Sara, owner of SoML. She totally hooked me up with the cutest bits of things that I can't wait to incorporate into a LO. Also my friend Dolly, who is the Creative Director at Green Tangerines in California sent me THE MOST AWESOME PACKAGE EVER!!!! I will post a photo tomorrow 'cause my batteries just died on me. I will also get up a pic of the goodies Sara sent too- minus the Hello Kitty stuff cause my BFF would die if she knew I had those and didn't give them to her! So cause I lub her so much, hope you don't mind Sara, I passed them over to her! It totally made her day and she said she'd scrap picks of her puppy with them =D

So much has happened since the last time I blogged but I won't bore you with all the little details about my daughter's sleepovers and my lazy beach bum days... I will share with you what I found at Target for less than $4.......................

Oh, and not that this post needs to be any longer BUT I need to ask you all for suggestions or ideas. I REALLY need to get my new scrap space in order. Since we adopted Bo, I had to move all of my stuff. We have a super long living room so I secitoned off a small L-cove area off with the couch. Now I have this little nook to put all my goods- here are the pics so you can see. Right now it's a mess. I know where everything is but since it's in my living room I need to keep it somewhat neat, really. Well, as neat as I possibly can.

this is to the right of the bookcase. I'm think some kind of drawer storage for my kits. What do you think?

Not much space here but in all actuallity I need only about a 15 x 15 space to work on. THe rest can hold scrappy stuff.

THese are hanging fruit baskets I picked up a long time ago at an antique shop and thought they'd be great to store scrappy stuff. Maybe my stamps rather than storing them in a shobox?

This absolutely "tweet" thing my friend picked up for me at Joanne's. I was eyeing it months ago and it went on clearance finally, so she grabbed it! I lub her! RIght now I am using it to store some tools and as a place to stick something I want to use frequently, like scissors and my corner punch.

Okay, if you have any suggestions, please share them with me!! I need cheap storage solutions and opinions on how I should arrange things without taking over the living room =D
I would like it to look like a creative space too. I don't like to hide my stuff away, ya know. But I want it to look pretty at the same time.

Hi Jess! First of all, you are on the list!! Your under CJ girlies! so NAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAa!!! Anyway...Lovin all the little goodies you've done! And that scrap space needs some plastic bins. I buy the 12x12 ones and put my kits in those, then once that month is over I move it in with everything else. Just a suggestion.
