Hi friends! Hope your week has been swell so far!! I seem to not be getting rid of this nasty sinus/head cold stuff very fast--ugh, it's still hangin' around! But I did eek out a card for ya today and I have some pics of my new craft room!! Only 2 things left to do in my room--hubby has to hang up my toile plates & put the silver handles on my large cabinets & it's done--hurray! I really love it--so pretty, clean & most of all super organized! I love organization---makes me sooo much more productive! And for anyone who is curious, the quote on the wall above my shelves is by "me" that I had custom made by UpperCase Living--great company for making words & quotes for your walls! I have had this quote & a bunch of others for over a year now & have just procrastinated on putting them up, hee hee! Good thing I waited or else this quote would be in my other room :o( & you can't move 'em once they're up!! Anywhoo, movin' on for the day! **PICTURE SLIDESHOW OF MY CRAFT ROOM BELOW**

So today I have a Magnolia card for you that I made to match my "new" craftroom, hee hee, no lie!! I wanted a pretty card to display on my shelf that matched & yes I am anal that way :o) I used this fabulous new "Tilda w/ Birdcage" available at Magnolia-licious HERE--isn't she adorable? I used yesterday's Verve Mojo Monday Anniversary Sketch (Day 2 HERE) for my layout which I just loved! The black/white dp is from PTI, as is the ribbon. The cardstock is retired SU soft sky (I adore it, hoard it, matched my room paint to it & need more--if you know anyone who wants to get rid of some, let me know) that I embossed w/ a Cuttlebug Folder(textile texture)!! The sentiment is from PTI's "Wishing You" set!
I added some diamond stickles to her dress & hairband & then coated her shoes & birdcage with Diamond Glaze for shine. I made her lil' birdie a finch cuz' I liked the pop of yellow :o) I just adore her & she is happily sitting on my black hutch in my craft room, hee hee!
-PTI stands for Paper Trey Ink
-my paper cutter is by Tonic & available HERE (the best by far-never needs new blade, sharpens itself)
-toile curtains I've had but they came from Country Curtains
-Upper Case Living is fabulous for quotes for your wall--see HERE for more info
-I did not show the inside of my closet--it is super organized but not worth showing, hee hee-I have lots of space to grow into
-My ribbon pantry shelves I got at Lowes but I think Target & Home Depot have them too!
