Princess Room

The first room we gave a lift to was Kenzie's. She's had these wallpaper bear border since she was born.


After some stripping and a fresh coat of pink paint...we've got a room fit for a princess! Who happens to be celebrating her 6th birthday this weekend. And the AFTER:

The bed frame and matching dresser was taking up so much room so we took off the mirror and rearranged the setting. Design on a dime!

Old Scraproom

I"m moving! Yes, I'm moving all my scrap stuff into another room.

For the last two months, we've been busy working on my NEW studio. We had a corner of the basement that was used as a storage room with just extra junk in it. Holding boxes and boxes of the kids old clothes and toys they don't play with and xmas decor etc... The furnace and water pipes and drainage is all in the same room so it didn't make it ideal to turn it into a bedroom. And there are no windows. But my husband framed around all this stuff and it will work perfectly for my new space. This is my current room. I love it but we need room for a spare bedroom to hide all the toys the kids have accumulated in the past 5 years.

We are in the finally stages...I spent all weekend painting and the trim work and carpet will go in this week. Yay!

I do love the existing color scheme: Red/Pink/Brown

I have to share with you theis amazing canvas piece my friend Nikki made for me. She is just chalk full of talent!

MME True Blue

I"ve always loved how whimsy thread just floats around on digital pages and decided to try the same look here.

Inspired by pinwheels I"ve seen lately...

Go Jayhawks!

A week late

I"m running just a week behind schedule here....without further delay, here are my February Scrap-Room designs. This month you get a mix of Fancy Pants, My Mind's Eye and Echo Park.

I had to really stretch my half used package of thickers here. I didn't have any of the letters I needed so I improvised. The S was a number 8, the e's were the amperstand sign, the t's was a number 1, and my bottom e was a c.

And this month we have a new sketch artist...our very own Doubleshots Barista Frances! She has a great eye for design and I look forward to working with all her sketches. This one was great to show off all the different fun patterns when you can't decide which one to choose from.

This kit came with lots of brads and I love making my own flowers. I had a spare piece of canvas ribbon that I threaded and pulled for one flower. And for the larger one, I punched a set of hearts, folded each twice and stuck them together. Got out my distressing red brick ink and added some color to the bracket shape. And for my Forever title, I used some making memories manilla paint and topped them with crystal laquer for shine.
