Last month or so, there was a plethora of blogs offering a Pay It Forward exchange whereby the first three people who left a comment on your blog would receive a handmade item. They, in turn, would post the same thing on their blog and on and on it would go. Well, I have finally gotten it together enough to make the little gifts and here is a sneak peak for you. The ladies in question have been notified that their gift is on its way and that it will be displayed here. When they get it they can compare the real life gift with the photo. Oh, BTW, only two people responded and that is why you will only see two gifts. For a closer look, just click on the pic.
In addition to this, I have been moving my craft space for the past three days. I'm very slow at doing this kind of thing, but it needed to be done. Here are some pics for you.
This pic shows an almost full view of my scrap space. It is formerly our dining room, but since we don't do much entertaining now, I decided to take it over. When the house goes up for sale, I'll pack it all away **boo hiss* and turn it back into a dining room. I needed the guest bedroom for DD when she comes up after I have my surgery.
This is the view I have now when sitting and playing, er, I mean working. It overlooks the sunken living room. That stained glass window was specially made for a house we owned years ago, we just cart it around to each house and, fortunately, have always found a place for it. Hope that happens when we move into a condo later this year.
This pic shows how I've reorganized my cardstock. There are 2 buckets and each folder is labeled with the colour name, ie. Real Red, etc. I keep all the reds together, yellows together, etc. In front of each section is a folder labeled Red Scraps, Yellow Scraps, etc. This way, I have scraps, both patterned and plain, that match. I just thought of it and I think it's brilliant. I'm sure there are others who have the same idea, I'm just slower!
And, I forgot to mention in the Bingo post below, that on weekends there are no new numbers called, so Bingo will resume on Monday. How's everyone doing? Any winner yet?
