Embarrassed, But Organized!

After having the pleasure of not having to leave the house for 2 days, my craft room is completely reorganized! I am delighted with how it turned out, and feeling very good (in spite of the nasty fall I took yesterday) about being able to work more efficiently.

I did something really stupid yesterday while finishing my organizing. I needed to put some things on the highest shelf in the closet. My grand daughter has her own little table & chair in my room so when she is here we can create together. Well, her chair was right there, so I just grabbed it to stand on to reach the shelf. I still had to stand on my tip toes, and when I did, the chair tilted, and broke! I fell straight back and bashed my head into the floor. Thank goodness I had straightened and there wasn't anything behind me, and the floor is carpeted. I don't usually swear, but I think I did as I was falling. I laid there a few seconds, thinking holy *@!# I just fell.

I felt a bit like Goldilocks, and poor little Baby Bear's chair is now smashed to smithereens!

I have several bruises, and my arms, hip, and tailbone are a little sore, but other than that, I'm fine, more embarrassed than anything. Please learn from my stupidity...don't try this at home!

Okay, I promised projects. Even after my incident, I did have quite a productive day. I decided to only use chairs to sit in...my nice soft office chair. I have two cards to share. These were both made using new product, but I figured there's only a couple of more days, until the new catalog is released, so I would go ahead and show them to you today.



This is the new Raspberry Tart Designer Series Paper. My photos are a little washed out. The paper is bright pinks & greens, very yummy! The flower on the first card is from Petal Pizzazz. This stamp just happens to coordinate with the Scallop Circle Punch. On the second card I used the new Sweet Stems set. This is an adorable set of 4 flowers...and you know how much I love the flowers. I stamped them with Basic Black Ink, used my Blender Pen to color them in, punched them out, layered them and viola! I also used the Crystal Rhinestone Brads, which are being offered separately now, not only in the Pretties Kit...way to go SU! The brads on the second card are from the Rich Regals Assortment. The ribbon is the Pretty in Pink Taffeta.
There are so many great new things. I can't wait to share it all with you!
Have a Spectacular weekend.
