Next to the computer desk is Tim's amp, all his guitar peddles and his guitars (yes, more than one, although only one made the pictures! lol) I use his amp as a lovely display shelf for cards I'm working on...he's not all that keen on this idea...in his words, "Nothing says ROCK ON like a hand-made card!" heheheh Then I've got a rolling storage container and a glass fronted cabinet with stuff in them.
Next to those is my lovely desk! Whoohoo. This is where I scrap away. You can sorta see my version of the clip it up hanging above my dest, all my ink pads and what not. Oh, I store most of my alphas in the shoe box on the top of the cabinet next to my desk. (Thank goodness DH has huge feet so even my big alphas fit! hehehe)
Then I use an over the door shoe sorter to hold my punches, random stamps, decrotive scissors (although they never get used...) and stuff like that. My rolling tote that I take to crops and stuff lives in front of it with my crop-a-dile and stuff like that in it.
And finally my bookshelf! This is where all my stamp sets live. My MM paints and stickles are all lined up nice and neat, flowers and bling live in the drawers and then books/mags/and stuff like that on the lower shelf. And the top shelf is share with books. lol.
That's it kids! That's my space. Thanks for stopping by!

Gretchen Naugle, wife of Desiring God's Lukas Naugle, was on hand and writes,
Pastor John called all women to examine the depths of their womanhood and their faith. He stated, "If you base your womanhood on competency you diminish the glory of Christ."
When we as women embrace our God-given role, we proclaim the glory of Christ at Calvary. We were called to proclaim the glories of Christ in all that we do, even the countless diaper moments that come with being a mom and in the hard, sacrificing moments of being single.
We need strong theology to stand strong through the challenges of this life, because as Pastor John said, "Wimpy theology makes for wimpy women."
(This was taken from the Desiring God Blog. For more information on this read this article.)

I made this for our front door. The picture is attached with repositionable tape so I can change it out whenever I get a hankerin' to. (hehehe....I don't know why, but I've had a hankerin' to use the word hankerin lately!)

Wow, its only been 2 days since I've blogged...(sorry about that!) but I feel like I've got a ton to say. DS is up and needs to nurse though, so I'll just post little bits as I have time! lol. First...a shameless plug!
Well...I thought it was a shameless plug, but I guess I don't need it! lol. I'm in the So You Think You Can Scrap contest at YMBD and I was going to tell you to go vote for your favorite lo...but apparently round 1 is over and I made it on to round 2! lol. I know you've seen this LO before, but this is the one I entered for round 1.

Ok, first off I took a Maya Road letter tin and altered it into a nightlight for my DS. I also used this for the Noel Mignon Recycle Reduce Reuse contest. I wasn't really sure that the tin would count as something I would normally throw away (even though it WAS packaging..) but either way it doesn't matter because I was out of dimensionals and this project needed a ton of them...so I used the foam from scraps that I had trimmed from some SU stamps. They're already self adhesive, just peel off the rubber and add a little glue to one side if needed and viola! Dimensionals from things I would normally throw away! :D
I printed a very from Psalms that says, "In peace I will both lie down and sleep, for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety." on a transparency. It's kind of bowed out from the lid, then the pictures are double popped up and the LIVE bingo card is just popped a little and everything else is adhered directly to the pp on the back.
An angled pic to get some more detail without the glare.
and a picture of it lighted!! :D I LOVE how it looks lighted!!!
moving on...LO of Zeke doing what he always does outside...eating grass! There's hidden journaling behind the picture (on the "read this" tab)
This was a very simple LO...something I'm not usually very good at, but I really like how the messy stitching around the "lucky" turned out.
and a DPS. the chair on the vertical pic is popped up a little bit.
Ok, that's it for now. Have a great day!
