My new craft room – almost ready for moving in!


It’s been a while since I posted on my blog.  You may be wondering what I’ve been up to, so today I wanted to share a few pictures of my new craft room.  We’ve been working on our new house for what feels like a lifetime!  If you’ve been through renovations, I know you’ll appreciate the time and effort involved in creating a whole new space.  I’m thrilled to say that next week we’ll be moving in and I’ll be able to unpack all my craft supplies and get settled into my new space.

These pictures were from a few weeks ago.  The final shelving went in, sink, faucet, and the remaing doors and handles have been installed.  I’ll be using a harvest table as my worktable.  All that’s left is to move into it on Tuesday .. and I can’t wait!

I chose four different colours for the walls and a really cool vinyl sheet floor that reminded me of a quilt.. appropriate for a craft room, don’t you think?

Well, I better get back to packing..


Love Today Planner Kit


Love Today Planner Kit is available from my store – CLICK HERE to buy it now.

I was once told you can’t love someone else until you learn to love yourself.  Part of loving yourself is recognizing and making time to look after yourself – whether it’s time in your craft room, or a pedicure, or a yoga session or maybe just drinking enough water to support your amazing body.

Life sometimes gets in the way of that but most of the time, I try really hard to make sure I schedule me-time.  Stampin’ Up! just released this new perpetual planner so you can start at anytime.  Refills are available too.  So now I’m scheduling all my me-time appointments – a relaxing bath, a walk on the trail, creativity time.  It’s helping me be consistent and find just a little time to spoil love myself, and by doing that — I’m better able to love and support those around me.

A Little Something For You
