Wishing you a Happy New Year along with a Peek inside my craft room!

Happy New Year!
I want to thank all of my lovely and talented blogger friends and followers
and wish you all a very 
I'm spending a quiet evening at home with my dear husband.
We enjoyed a very nice dinner together
and we are looking forward to toasting 
a Happy New Year!
I have made a card using
to share with all of 
you to ring in 
The sentiment is also from Fresh Brewed Designs!
I thought it might be fun to share some of my 
craft room with all of you.
I'll be honest and admit that I tidied it up for the pictures!
I can be a very messy crafter!  Paper, embellishments 
and sticky dimensional tabs
can fly every where and even fall on the floor when I 
am creating!  ;-)
Yup, My desk is unusually tidy!  I must admit though,
that it's been a real pleasure to work at since I tidied up!
We will see how long it lasts.  Do you like my sweet old lamp?
I think that lamp was my grandmothers.  I have a white light lamp up above for my work.
This is containers for pearls, bling and embellishments.
I also have some small die namics and dies here.
This is tidy.  
All of my drawers are packed full of design paper
and paper flowers.

Ah........Yes.  This is the old relic of a SEWING MACHINE that I have just started to sew my cards with!  Believe it or not...
This machine will only sew the zig zag stitch!  I sure do wish that I could sew with a simple straight stitch!  Oh well, Someday!
This is my ribbon shelf system.
Admittedly not the best system, but it works for now.
I have lots of other ribbon that isn't on spools.
My mother gave me a huge basket full!
Do you like my new Winter snowman mascot?
He was knit for me by a VERY DEAR FRIEND!
Looking at this picture, I can't believe how much Orange ribbon 
that I have!  I hardly ever use orange.  I decided to make an orange card for a future challenge.  Be on the look out for that.
It seems that I never have the right shade of blue ribbon for 
my cards.  Every time I find a pretty blue design paper to work with, I discover that I don't have the right shade of blue ribbon.  Then I usually resort to making a pink card!  LOL!  I will have to be on the lookout for some sales.
Though, with Valentines day coming up, I will be all set with
red and pink ribbon!
Well, That's it for now!
