Evolution of Tools-Corners

Well it seems like corners are my thing! I like the rounded corners on my greeting and note cards, it just gives them a bit of an edge that I love! Well my trusty corner rounder has been with me for years and years and it's never let me down. It's small and effective and I love it!

Well now it seems like my volume of cards and notecards has increased ten fold (yeah!) and I am in need of an "evolution" tool. The topic of corner rounders was brought up by my EtsyGreetings members and I now have a new tool which I must own!

I am able to round paper, chipboard, cork board, foam and more. I can cut the corners of up to 100 sheets of #20 paper!!!!! (That's right I said 100!) And there's extra blades to adjust the corner size, how cool is that!
I don't yet own this tool yet as I am trying to hunt it down at my local crafts shops before I need to turn my sights online! I've only heard excellent things about this item and I look forward to owning it soon!

Evolution of Tools-Folds

When I first starting having to fold my cardstock by hand I could not figure out how to make a crisp crease! This boggled my mind for a long while until I was introduced to this miraculous tool
BEFORE: Bone Folder

This was my saviour, my folds were crisp and clean, my only problem was setting the paper up properly inorder to score it hmmm. Now enter
NOW: Score-It

This fantastic item comes in 4 different sizes and is able to clearly mark the center of your paper in order to acheive a perfect center score each and every time. There is also little to no cracking of heavier cardstock. This was by far one of my favorite "evolution" purchases to date.

Evolution of Tools-Adhesive

I love tools! I love what I have and I love learning about new ones! It seems like there is something for everyone and if your lukcy, your favorite tool may have evolved and be easier to use. I will be showcasing some of my favorite tools over the next couple of days and the evolution.
I'm starting out today with an oldie but a goodie!

Well it's funny how times have changed, everything has gotten bigger and I think better, and a tad bit easier, Oh and did I mention bigger!

When I was creating greeing cards for my family and friends I would buy these at my local craft store two at a time because I was going through a TON of them. Now that I have entered the online selling world, I heard the whispers about a tool that no respectible crafter could live without! This is definatly an investment tool as the price tag is a bit steep ($45.00apprx.) but once you get the hang of installing the tape, it's a tool that is well worth the money.

BTW, mine is pink!!!!

July 10/10/10 Challenge Day 7

Today we braved the weather and headed down to the Jazz festival! The day was threatening rain all day and thankfully it rained on our way down to the event, but once we got there the skies opened up and we had a few blue skies and dry weather. There was a few drizzles here and there but nothing that made us run for the hills.
We had a great time listening to music, enjoying some local food as well as walking around and seeing the sites.
There was a lot of really good local talent there. Shakura S'Aida really caught our attention and we ended up purchasing her CD Blueprint. I listened to it in the car and I really like her music. I'm already thinking of having a dinner party and having this great CD playing in the background.
Today I am featuring Lavender Greetings

There is an array of fabulous cards and tags in this shop and what's best is there is always free shipping. This beauty caught my eye!

July 10/10/10 Challenge Day 5

We are half way through the challenge which I find amazing!
I'm not sure where the time is going. It might be because I've been super busy this week that I've really not had a chance to breath, but the weekend is upon us and I have no plans, as yet, so hopefully I can get to work on a few ideas that I have. I have re-listed my Blue Crown Gift Tags, they are super cute for your little Prince.

Today I am featuring JEmily
Her cards are beautiful and creative! I really like this baby girl card. I love the colors and the layout, now I just need to know someone who is having a little girl so that I can give this card to them.

Pink Flamingo Gift Tags

Today is hump day and I'm feeling like a lump! I had a great work out today but I'm really tired from having to out the door before 8:30am inorder to drop my daughter off at camp. Today I am really dragging my feet. You would hope that I would get used to the routine by now, but tomorrow is the last day of camp so I'll have a bit of a relief until I have to do it all over again next week.
Today for my Challenge I am featuring Crickleberry Cottage

I love the feel of this shop, it is very cottagey and vintagey (for lack of a better word). I love the look of these gift tags! They are pink, girly and oh so pretty.

July 10/10/10 Challenge Day 2

Today again I have decided to re-list an item. I'm proving a bit busier than I though and I have many balls up in the air that are on the verge of falling if I don't catch them soon.
There is my studio make-over that I still need to complete, I have quite a few items that need to be photographed, of course I have a ton of new ideas in my head that I need to complete, as well there is the buzz about Christams, that's right you heard me correctly Christmas! I'm still in camp mode. I just need to take a deep breath and get cracking!
I have also relisted a few more items, but you'll have to head on over to my shop to see what they are!

Today I am featuring the works of AJK Artistry
This is a beautiful card which has just what I like, a bit of color and bling! This is a beautiful card and the best part is that it is on sale!

I love going on vacation, it's so nice to get away and I love being able to focus all my attention on my family.  We went up North to cottage country for a week and we stayed at a resort with plenty of kid activites.  We had a fabulous time playing in the park, swimming in the pools and of course enjoying the great food.  We really did nothing for the week other than lounge around and we started to feel guily about that but it only lasted for a moment and then we went back to lounging by the pool.  The week went by way to fast,  I'm already planning on where we'll go on our next vacation which I'm hoping will be before the end of the year.

Crafty Space Good Will Find

I'm still scared!
I have not had a lot of time to get down and organize my mess in the basement, but I hope to be able to tackle it today!
I have been keeping up with Molly Lee's progress on her blog and she has some found some really fabulous storage ideas from all places Good Will!
As you may know I don't have a budget for this makeover/cleanup but I love her Portable Crafting Kit!  This would work wonders for me as my crafting stoarge area is dark, and in the basement, I'm always carrying everything that I need up to the kitchen to work.  I went in search of a beautiful tray but I could not find one, but I did pick up this table top wooden storage rack.  I've got a few ideas of what to do with it, but first I need to paint it out.  It only cost me $$5 so I don't feel too guilty for breaking my non budget!
I hope to roll up my sleeves and start sorting and organizing so I can get back to what I love, crafting!

Happy Shopping!

I need a rest!!!
In the words of Scarlett O'Hara, tomorrow is another day!

1 Room Down, 1 To Go!!!

Well after a couple of hours of sorting and with the help of my 4 year old DD I was able to clear out most of the crap from the library/office and it looks great!  There are still a few problem areas but overall I'm so pleased with the work that we have accomplished!  It was very important for me to get the stuff off the floor so there is less worry for my 1 year old.  I've decided not to do anything more until I tackle the basement, which is frightful!
I never thought that I would say this, but I really hope I don't sell anything for a couple of days as I really need to sort out the mess in the basement!

Crafty Room Challenge/Clean Up

Well I've been inspired yet again by my lovely Team!  This room which is more of a library than a studio has been a sore spot in my house for almost 4 years! It was suppose to be my creative room but oh so quickly it has become my dumping ground!  Anything business related that I would buy would litteraly get dumped in this room.  Now this room was right off my side door(which is used as the front door) and I would always keep the door closed as well as the windows because I was too embarrased to have anyone see what a mess I was keeping.
Well after reading MollyLee's blog, I decided to do something about it!  This challenge is on for 4 weeks but to be honest I need this done ASAP!  I have a 1 year old that is getting into everything. I am going to set up shop in the basement which I'm not thrilled about but it has the most space to house everything.  Once this room is cleared the real work will begin!  I allowed myself a budget of $0 as I know underneath all this crap is storage containers and baskets which I've bought but could not find!  I'm excited to finally get this room back!
