Thanks a million!

Hi, Friends!

I am one happy crafter!  I am in my new craft room!  I made the above card for my son who helped me design the room.  My hubby, son, and son's friend, Ryan, assembled the Ikea furniture that we recently purchased.  

For the card, I started with a white card base and paired it with a frame made using a die cut from Impression Obsession.  The design paper is from MFT.  The sentiment is from Simon Says.  I used a mix of sequins for the fun shaker card and twine to finish the card.  Please forgive the photo quality for I don't have the lights set up yet for the photo box.

Here are a couple photos of my new craft room...

The plan is to buy blinds.  I will miss the pretty valances, but it won't fit on the one window. 

The plan is to put up a couple shelves above the computer.  We'll see how that looks.  But, I have a lot done and I'm so happy to create in my new happy place!

I hope you all are doing well and are enjoying the warmer weather.  It was one gorgeous day here and the temp got up to 80.  It looks like warmer weather will be here for awhile!  

Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by today!  Take care and have a great week!
