Wedding Celebration Invitation

Have I said how much I love my Craft Robo. I'm sure I have. We are having a party for my Son and my future daughter in law prior to their wedding out of state.

I really like how they turned out. Standard white cards, red roses scrapbook paper cut to fit. I then matted one of their engagement photo on black card stock. Topped it off with lettering mounted on pop dots that I printed and cut with my craft robo.

My Craft Room

Ok, it's not normally this clean but I have been working the last 2 days to get my room organized. I thought I would share my ideas for organization.

First of all, I share my craft room with my kitty, Jesse, so even his house got in on the action. He doesn't seem to mind. I took the door off of the closet so that I could have full access and hung a shower curtain. Makes easy access the the closet.

The wood cabinet is an old computer desk that holds my sewing machine. Nothing like recycling furniture that you no longer need. The baskets on the shelf hold the current projects that I am working on.

I bought the shelves that hold all my stamps at a garage sale for $5 total. That was a great find. The large wood cabinet is a shelf that we had made about 25 years ago so that our console tv fit perfect. Needless to say we don't have the console any longer but the shelf works great.

The best thing is the shoe organizer hanging on the back of the door. Helps hold misc things that don't fit anywhere else. The blue thingy(don't know what it is called) holds photos. I found it at an outlet store for $1 in the teachers section so I'm not sure it's original use but it works great for displaying photos waiting to be scrapped.

Little white basket by the door holds all swaps that are coming in so I can keep track of them.
