New Craft room

Well I did it, I took over one of the twins rooms now that they have ran away to college.
But the good news is I put two twin beds in the other empty room... see always room to come home!
 
So with no further ado welcome to my room...
 


View from the door... hmmm time to take out the paper bin...
I have a hemp line running on the wall with hooks to hold packets of stamps. Those are mostly Bella's and a few Tiddley inks.
Above on the book shelf I drilled a hole through each of the support brackets and ran a dowel through them to create more hanging space. That holds Unity stamps and odds and ends.
 I repeated that on the brown book shelf. They are steel dowels I found at the hardware store. You can find my Kraftin Kimmies there and my Saturated Canary in the box top shelf. 
On the other wall are curtain rods to hold punches. Where I couldn't fit them all I have a board running the line in the window space for more...
 

 other side... My grandmother's chair and Blanket she made.
 
I took of the doors to the closet and ran stamp shelves on both sides and a longer shelf across the top of those... Tucked a dresser and lots of adds and ends in the closet.


 
Continuing the rotation around the room.... stamp shelves... and more stamp shelves!!
 
 
I've added a built in shelves behind the door in the negative space for... You guessed it, Stamps!
I do love my Rubbers!
 


This would be paper and ink and yep more stamps... I keep furniture refinishing stuff in the hidden cupboards on the bottom.

More clutter... and a chair for which ever of my kiddo's that happen to want to visit me :)
 

 
And last but not least back to the beginning my computer and area where I create my messes!
 
So hopefully that covers it. I hope you enjoyed the tour. Not the best of pics as the smallest lens I had was a 24mm. made climbing into corners a bit of a challenge! A room never feels small till u take pics with limited lenses on a dslr!

Mo's Digital Pencil

 
 
The classes that Alyce has over at:

I've used a Mo's digital Pencil image
called : Tuesdays Child 
 
 
I had a blast working all these colors up! It looks way more blended in person :(
 
But any who...
I have a ton more cards I need to add, my blogging has gone to the birds lately with so much stuff to do!
 
Here are just a few that I have done in the last few weeks...
 
These are my DT cards for Ppinky Dolls

I Love to help!

Tiddley Inks

 
I've just finished up this new release from Tiddley inks!
I love her! Though not so much my coloring lol! But it's all good I'll give it another go soon :)
 
I've colored her in with copic markers and then thought I would start in with my pencils. Of course I didn't put any thought into the fact that I was using my copic paper... I really wish the two would work better together. grrrrr
 
 
But maybe next time I will fussy cut her out and slap her on a different paper.. hmmm
 
It was fun none the less, and I got to play with my new toy the
Cut 'n' Boss.
I love it!!! And I'm soon to go bankrupt getting more dies to cut in it!
Self control.... What?????
 
Hope you are all having a fab day... it was in the 70's yesterday and we are expecting snow today... good reason to stay in and color I guess!
