I flipped the sketch upside down and added a little personal touch! =)


The little koala is from Reverse Confetti's Bear Hugs set. He is stamped with Antique Linen Distress Ink, colored with Copic markers then fussy cut out.

My humble little craft space

Hello, all! =) Thanks RG team assignments, I got a chance to show you my tiny little craft space.


I do all my crafting/card making on our dining table, well, half of our dining table. =) We live in an condo with limited space and I chose to craft in the open in our living room/dining room even though we do have a spare bedroom.


Most of my frequently used supplies are behind me on a baker's shelf kind of thing. This is the view if I turn to my right when I sit on my chair.


Some of these Sterilite ClearView Latch boxes hold finished cards (and I have LOTS of them) and some hold my stamps. Two of them hold embellishments, but in fact, I only use a few bags of sequins these days. =) Of course I have more supplies (that are not as frequently used) and finished cards, but they are stored in our spare room.


There are also tools and inks in here somewhere in their own plastic boxes. It's an organized chaos. =)


These hold "some" of my beloved washi tapes. If you see any boxes like this in the photos, they are all washi tapes. Yes, I know I have issues! =)


And to my right on the floor next to my seat is my trusty Copics in their case and trimmers. The paper bag is for small scraps and trash.


To the right of the table is another chair that holds my laptop (connected to the monitor you see on the table) and projects that are ready to be blogged and/or waiting to be finished.


To the left of my working space are my pens! I love pens and I have too many of them! Also the little Canon Selphy CP910 that I use to print photos (mostly for my journals). And of course everyone needs a TARDIS! =)


To the right of my working space is my little gang. I feel like I am being judged ALL the time though! >_<

That's all! Here is a slideshow if you care to see them all at once! =)



Thanks so much for stopping by my little craft space!

Have a lovely day!

I die cut the Honeycomb piece with watercolor paper and colored it used Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor. The sentiment is from the super versatile Smooches set.

Hello, my friends! =) New Sketch for the week is up over at CAS(E) This Sketch! First is the sketch.


Here is my take on it.


I flipped the sketch upside down and added a little personal touch as always. =)


The beautiful flowers are from Altenew's Magnolias for Her set. They are stamped on watercolor paper with Antique Linen Distress Ink then colored with Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor.


I did a light wash around the flowers to create a subtle background and the sentiment is created using my trusty Dymo label maker.
