So I was going to blog...

several times this week. I just couldn't come up with anything that was super cleaver to share. However, I did do some scrappy organizing! Matt and I took a trip to our nearest Ikea to purchase shelving for my scraproom. Ever since I started sewing, things have gotten a bit out of control. I need to have everything in it's place. I just didn't really know where that place was so that 1. remembered what I have and 2. can see it to use it. I am a nut about using and keeping EVERYTHING, so my space really needs to make sense for me to be productive. Here are the new additions to our home.

The wicker drawers have fabric in them. The shelves hold my idea books and binders. The baskets have paint, sewing patterns, albums, stickers, rub ons, stamps and chipboard. Here's the top since I can't get the whole thing in the photo due to only having a 50mm lens on my new camera.

That top basket has all of my fabric that is less than a yard. And because I cleaned up, you can actually see my counter top.

And this is my button doggy. This is actually a dog dish with two bowls. One for big buttons and one for little ones. He hangs out with me while I scrap to add the perfect finishing touch to my pages.

On a non scrappy note, have you ever heard of The Melting Pot? Well it's a fondue restaurant in MD, (it is a chain). I thought, I love cheese and chocolate, this will be fun. Little did I know, the four course meal actually included raw meat for us to boil!!! Ummm, I don't think we will be eating dinner there again anytime soon. Now appetizers and dessert....that's a different story.

As far as LO's are concerned, I did complete a few projects and submitted them for pub. Wish me luck! I continue to take a deep breath and submit. I have faith that it will happen for me, (I think), it's that whole patience thing that I am not very good at! As always, thanks for stopping by and I'll blog ya soon!

It was great to hear from you on my blog. Thanks for the nice comment on my card.
We should do a FCW crop again.
Your room looks great! I was just thinking about that idea book you made with layouts you like from magazine. I think I may try that to reduce some of the magazine clutter.
So I resolved to actually submit to magazines this year instead of just talking about it. Now to find the time to make the pages. I know yours will get picked up...your work is fantastic!
