One for Angela!

Since I have shared that I renovated my craft room Angela has been asking (and asking!) for some pictures of the final out come. well finally the room is tidy (Rylee is the worst culprit), please excuse the bits of paper on the carpet, the vacuum had not made it to that room when I took the shots!

My space, all goodies at my finger tips, 2 cube shelves squashed together from officeworks.
All my electronic needs satisfied here, TV, dvd player (including DivX), ipod dock- all I need is a fridge and a kettle!

Thank god for Ikea!! Rods and baskets both from ikea, perfect for the punches and ribbons.

OMG!, these are great little cubes from Office works- all the markers can be on display and easily accessible.

Sizzix and cutting corner. Nestabilities are on the wall on magnetic strips from Ikea, easy to access. More baskets waiting (in the background) for another rod to go up and hold more ribbon- :(

And there are shelves under the desk to hid all those difficult to place items like gift bags and boxes and of course paper scraps galore!!

Gallery of cards of recent creations

Darcy and Rylee's area, anything pink is fair game for them! easy to say but in practice is sometimes different!

Lolly bags

Our Daughter Darcy has turned 8 today (the time has just flown by, where have the past 8 years gone?) She is having a little celebration with 2 of her friends and her little sister Rylee. Every celebration (when your under 12!) needs to have lolly bags to say thank you for coming along, below is what was created with the help of the very talented Lauren Meader's wonderful instructions. A very easy project once you have done the first one! i changed the instructions slightly to enable the design to fit on the front and to use the australian sized card stock. I think I used 8 1/4" x 9 1/2" with a 2" border.
