Newest Projects

Hello Friends,

Well vacation days are over and here are the few projects I completed while on vacation.  The new stamp pad organizer was done while at the race track.  It was so windy that I didn't venture outside of the living quarters of the racecar trailer too much.

I will need to look back and see where I got the instructions for this and then give credit for it. Ok...found it...it came from Karen Church's blog that can be found at syzygyofme.blogspot.com it is not exactly as she designed it but somewhat close.  I just wanted to give credit where credit was due.

Then on Monday, while catching up on other stuff I managed to get my table painted. Here is view 1.

and here is view 2.

After I had my new stamp pad organizer in place I realized that I no longer had a place to display my wood mounted rubber stamps so I had to add a couple of shelves.  I was just going to get some of the prefinished boards but no one had the correct length of those available.  So I asked at the local Woodson's if they by chance had any scrap pieces of 1x6 or 1x8 boards? And they did!!! I was so excited!!! but when I got home with them to paint them white...I realized I was out of white paint and I wasn't going to make another trip.  So since I still had plenty of black paint still available...you can see what I did.

That's all for now! Until the next time!

Craft room update

Ok...so life has been busy...and so I figured it was time for a little bit of an update on my blog. All I have to post are more pictures of my craft room...it is slowly coming together. Bit by bit.  This past weekend I decided to build myself a new table.  I found the instructions online at Ana White's site here. She has an OVER abundance of plans.  I Absolutely love her site.  I still need to paint mine but here it is open.

and here it is closed.

Plan to paint it black I think. I may do the bottom section pink and the table top black...haven't decided completely just yet...but it may be a while before that is done.  I will eventually be my cricut table...so who knows I may paint it green. LOL....

Here are more just general pictures of my craft room overall...

If it's not an engine...it's a container of freon! Note: the engine is still under the built in table above right behind the skirt!

As you can see I still haven't painted the window seat box either.  Hopefully I will do it and the table at the same time...or not!
