Let the crafting begin...

The clean sweep has been completed in my craft room and I am in love with it! I keep looking at the room and smiling. It looks so pretty! I now know what supplies I have on hand and I am going to really try use up what I have before I purchase anymore!!

Here is a peek at the new room:

*I finally have a home for my laptop!! And I can't wait to fill my clipboards with inspiration!!

*I hung tons of cute art on my walls!!

*I wasn't able to get a good picture of my sewing table but it is clean!! I also hung some twine across my window to hang pictures and inspirtion from!

*My favorite little corner of the room. The dress form was from my parents last Christmas. My mom decoupaged it with sewing patterns from my great grandma. The sweater was knitted by my great great grandma and is in perfect condition. My LPS necklace was a suprise from Poot the last time we visited RVA!

Now lets see how long it stays like this! Style school started today and I can't wait to start putting my style file book together!!

Today was very eventful. Our plumbing decided to start acting up and backed up in our shower. We aren't sure if it is due to all our cold weather we have been having or if it is just a massive clog. We have the professionals coming out tomorrow to take a look. I had to go to my dear friend Lisa's tonight to shower! Luckily she lives close!! We also celebrated my dad's birthday today with a delicious mexican lunch and some Wii!! The only picture I managed to take was of the cake I made (Gluten free of course!)! It is called Watergate Cake and one of my favorites!

Oh...and I could not believe what we saw today when we left for lunch! This was hanging off the back of our house!!

It is suppose to warm up this week so I am sure it will be gone soon!

Well... I am off to curl up on the couch with Poot and start Season 3 of Big Love!! Can't wait!
