Getting settled!

Hi Crafters,

I apologize for the lack of posts over the past month!  We have moved into our new home and are settling in.  I hope to get my mojo back and start blogging again regularly.

My craft loft has finally taken shape! My friend has told me I need a fancier name for this space, let me know your ideas. Here's a snap shot from phase one of the cabinet installation. I snapped this picture a few weeks ago.

We still need to install counter tops on the corner cabinets but things are coming along.  I didn't let the lack of furniture get in the way of crafting!  I set up some boxes to put the cricut on and got a few time pressing projects finished up.
My husband installed the cabinets last week.  We will likely do a color wash to let the grain show through.  The cabinets are from Lowes.
I nabbed the wire paper rack for $5.00 from a local Joann's store that was closing to open a super store a few store fronts away.  My older sister gave me the piece next to it, it had been in storage while we built.  I was glad to have it back and load it up!

Here's one of the first projects I made in the new house...

I made this for a co-worker who just celebrated the birth of his daughter.  The font is Lyrical Letters, the elephant is from New Arrival, and the palm tree is from Life's a Beach.  I used copic markers to accent the elephant.  This allowed me to use modpodge to seal everything including the marker accent. I used my cuttlebug to accent the trunk and leaves of the palm tree.  The lettering is cut with vinyl and the embellishments are cut out of card stock.

I think I've typed enough to make up for the past few weeks!

Happy Crafting,
