Monogram R and Stamp Room

R is for retreat OBVIOUSLY! Cause that is what my new room is turning into. Okay, it is the same old room but I am redesigning again and believe it or not, it is so that I can share the space with the family. We are calling it the hobby room/office. As I work online it only made sense to add my office to my craft room. It will be nice to upload my cards a little quicker too. You'll notice that my background has changed from my hall floor *lol* back to the white background. I am still a little while from posting full pics of the room since DH has to add his fly tying corner not to mention we are awaiting a wall mount for a TV (wohoo!!!! some background noise...FINALLY). Anyhow, since I am rather impatient about sharing GREAT THINGS (which I have a few things to share in the future *wink wink*) I figured I could start by giving you a sneak peak of "the room". And since I was taking photos I also figured I would take a photo of a card for you too *smiles*. Oh and you'll never believe it but this card is a regular size card *lol*'s been a while.

Quick Tip: Stamp your chipboard in a dark craft ink and let dry. Once dry, stamp the same area in a lighter colour to add texture and depth to your chipboard.

Hobby Room Sneak Peak...

The kids also need a crafting space in the hobby room! So I hauled in this table (which I received from one of my homeschooling families...thanks Stacey!)

Paper and Ink organization

Even scraps need to be organized!

Organization a la Rubbah and accessories.

Happy stamping...and happy weekend.

Because I love to stamp and you do too!

oh I can not wait for may stamp room. I would like to know how you store the not so pretty items? What type of containers. I always find I get something perfect and then I run out of space in that container.

BTW I am so making a scrap storage this week.
