Valentines and Happy Birthday!

Hi, there!

Long time no post from me.  But, I've just been busy with different things.  I'll show you a couple of photos at the end of this post that I chose a paint color and we got our craft/office room painted.  My son will put up new trim.  I'm not sure when that will be completed, but the process of updating this room has started.  

Last weekend I got together with some friends and I got Valentine and birthday cards made.  The above card is for my husband using MFT stamps and dies.  The love die in the center of the O is from PI.

Next up, is a birthday card for a friend.  The flowers are from Pretty Pink Posh and the background leaf die is from Memory Box.  The flowers were colored with copics.

And, the last card is for my son.  The images are from MFT.  My son once had a hedgehog, so I thought this would be the perfect card for him.  

Ok, just a couple more photos...

I nearly forgot to get a photo before the new paint color.  We had everything covered before we started painting.

And, here is one photo showing the new paint color, which is a light blue color called (Sigh).  I want to come in my craft room to create and sigh with happiness!

It's still a mess and needs organized.  And, my husband has some Ohio State football items here and there.  Not sure if I can be rid of those things since I share this craft/office room with him, lol!  But, it already looks much better with a fresh coat of new paint!

Ok, friends, that's all for now.  I thank you for dropping by and have a great rest of the week!

Take care, hugs!


  1. Looks nice and it makes me anxious because I know I have to do the same to mine. Right now it is still a mess after holiday crafting. Maybe this week I'll go in and start organizing.

  2. Great cards with such pretty and fun elements on each one. Good for you starting the painting of your office/craft room! You'll love it when it's all organized I'm sure!

  3. Such beautiful work Maria, love your cards, the little gnome on your Love card is so fun. How brave of you to attempt to redo your craftroom, I keep putting mine off! Good luck with it all.

  4. The gnome replacing Cupid is adorable. What a fun card for hubby. Your coloring on the birthday card is awesome, Maria. The card is so pretty. Your son will get a kick out of his card! What a great name for a paint color and I bet you will be sighing when the room is finished. Can't wait to see it.

  5. The two MFT cards are adorable. The floral Birthday card is beautiful… love how vibrant the colours are.
    Happy crafting in your wonderfully light blue painted craft room!
