It’s Up!!!

Filed under: craftroom — Tags: , , , , , — maggie mathern @ 11:26 am

At long last I have the bookcase up and have added lots of stuff onto it’s shelves.  In fact it is already full *shock*  How did THAT happen?  I know I know, I am a hunter gatherer!  Definitely want to get another one of these, but it will be some time off.  I am very happy that the room is more spacious with less cumbersome furniture in it.

I have managed to relocate my cane display case into a corner of the loungeroom, so that has also given me some new floor space and a place for my beloved Missy’s bed 🙂  Now she can reside in comfort near me when I create.  She is VERY happy about that.  She has already tested it out whilst I have been clearing out a cupboard or rearranging things on the bookcase.

Ok, better dash and run some errands before I go off to work.  Will find the camera, which is still buried on my craft desk somewhere, and take some pics tomorrow.  See you then!

Keep Smiling and Stamping,

Maggie

A Cold, Wet Day

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — maggie mathern @ 1:57 pm

As much as I have been enjoying the bit of rain we have had recently, the cold is sure bothering me this year.  Must be getting older eh? LOL  I would love to be tucked into my studio creating, but have to go and brave the elements and go to work.

My appologies for no update in the last few days, good intentions and all.  I have spent some much needed time in the garden weeding and attending a myriad of other tasks that I have not had time for in recent weeks.  Playing catchup can be all consuming as we all know too well.

I intend to lock myself in here tomorrow and create up a storm.  So many new ideas I have found lately that I want to try.  Inspiration comes from many places.

Keep smiling and stamping,

Maggie

Hubby’s Birthday

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , — maggie mathern @ 1:44 pm

My husband Shane had a birthday recently as well.  Ok, so it was before mine and I am running late.  What else is new these days, right?  I would like to share the card I made for him just last night.  Why is it you find that inspiration strikes at the most inopportune times?  I should of been tucked up in bed asleep, but instead I was in my craft room in my element, surrounded by supplies I had pulled out from various sources.  Oh that looks good, no, maybe this?  You get the drift.  By the time I finished and presented hubby with his card, it was after 2 am when I got to bed.  That’s ok, but I definitely suffer for it the next day LOL
