I made the one on the left with a stamp set I found on sale at...not sure where, but it is pretty cute! It is colored with prisma pencils and pearl glitter. The one on the right is a borrowed stamp from Crafty Goodies. I colored that one with Copics and pearl glitter. They are really pretty, close up.

It's that time of the year again! I made these two-year planners for my Mom's church group to sell at their fund raiser this year. I made two-year planners for everyone I know last year, so I have another year before making more for family and friends.

OK, so the other day I was reading the SCS's newsletter and there was a question on "How do you organize your craft space" or something like that. I wasn't going to read it, but I was a little curious. My space is well beyond ever being "organized" in any way, shape or form, but I still had to check it out. One of the ladies had gone to Harbor Freight Tools and bought these little boxes. The rectangle one hold 12 small boxes and the square one hold 24 small ones. Well don't you know that Scrapin' Sister and I had to get to HFT right quick and check it out. And boy did we! We ended up going five times between the two of us. She used her's for brads and eyelets and I used mine for Fun Flock, Glitter and Embossing Powder. May have to go and get some more when they go on sale again!!

When I find some really cool paper, I just have to cover something! Usually it's a book! This paper is from My Minds Eye called Simply Delightful. It is so pretty. I have a lot of cardstock, but paper is a different story. OK, not really. I have a lot of that too, but this paper pack yelled loudly at me in the store. So I had to obey and BUY IT!! You will be seeing it on a lot of "stuff" in the future.

I have a few (OK, a lot) of these little note pads that I bought at Big Lots! a while back. When I bought them I just knew that I could do all kinds of fun stuff with them! However, it's been almost two years and the idea's just didn't come like I thought they would. I thought of covering the note pads in several different ways, but each way had a problem (too short, too long, how to attach the cover) You get the picture...this was fairly easy (31/2 " x 12") and just fold it around like a matchbook cover. Use the red tape (you know the one) to attach the cover at the top of the pad. Then just have fun trying to figure out where to go from there! Good luck...

I covered this little book with some cute paper with a green bird on it. The red chipboard heart has a velum background with tiny alpha letters "notes" on it. The letters are sprayed with the Glimmer Mist (Garden Party). I had a white feather and so I sprayed it with the Glimmer Mist as well so that the green feather matched the green bird. Cute, right?
