Well it's funny when we go thru our stash what lands on our desks last week Halloween ... I honestly don't know why but I found some stash and had to play with it started a couple projects just have to finish them all up, I know Halloween is so far away but I love it and we are moving next month and we finally get to unpack our locker ... 1 year and 1 month later it's a corner gas time capsule lol so I get some stash that's been packed and the rest of our house out YAHH!!! It's going to be very freaky to have all our stuff back after so long living without it ... Humm Perhaps a garage sale, now that we have a driveway and who knows what the old owners of the house leave behind in it. I don't even know where my little space will be seeing we will be living in renovations for along time. I hope to carve a little space out somewhere. So I can go and hide
On to my floor desk
A Christmas card I'm working on don't know if it needs anything else but it's a work in progress, Thinking of trying to emboss some paper snowflakes that is my embossing pad
My sister made it for me for Xmas LOVE IT !!! and so easy to make
1 Sheet Fun Foam, 1 piece cardboard, that non slip mat and it's all taped together
BRILLIANT I can emboss little flowers and make them look all fancy :)
Picture of the Underside so you know what I mean about that non slip mat thing

  1. It's good to catch up on your life. I had NO idea you were moving, but I am sure you're really excited. Love your attitude about the driveway, too. That made me laugh.

    Had to read about your embossing folder three times. Somehow, I didn't understand it the first time. I have everything, so could make one, too. THANK YOU!! Happy WOYWW from #1.

  2. Hi Nikki, Thanks for dropping by! Love to use snowflakes in various ways. I have a great Martha Stewart snowflake punch with a matching stamp. Very useful.
    Have a good week,

  12. Oh so your sweet sister is as clever as you, huh - what a great and useful gift. Bet you're getting a bit itchy about unpacking now - you've been so patient! And seasonal crafting isn't all it's cracked up to be.. I never do it at the right time..I have to wait till I'm in the mood!

  13. Hi Nikki,
    Your sister is pretty clever to create such a cool mat! Nothing wrong with working on Halloween or Christmas this time of the year... whatever sparks your interest and creativity, I say go for it!

  18. Hi Nikki - non-slip mat is a good idea - I have stuff in boxes in my garage that I haven't unpacked yet and I have been here 3 years... I'll get round to it - one day LOL... Happy WOYWW - Mxx #99

  19. Aaah the getting re-aquainted with all the stuff you have packed away... know that feeling well! I am sure you will be able to find a lovely niche somewhere to create in... maybe even graduate to desk? LOL Will have to go back and read the embossing mat bit again... it sounds like a handy thing to have and I think I have all the ingredients!! Annette #6

  20. Yeah, Christmas. Woohoo! That'll please Julia no end that some other idiot is working on Christmas too, lol!!! Good luck with the move, hope it all goes smoothly and you can find a little space to craft in.

  21. Hi Nikki,
    Thanks for the earlier visit. How exciting to be able to "un-pack" after so long a time. If I had to wait THAT long I would now own 2 of everything....LOL
    Like that Christmas card on your desk/floor

  22. Moving, stashing, storing things for a long(er) time.. it sounds both annoying as well as exciting... I do hope you have space for a craftroom somewhere in the new house. Happy woyww and a hug from Holland. Marit #91

  23. I smiled when I saw your snowflakes as I am really hating the heat here in NYC. Having a heatwave, and sure wish it would cool down! Enjoy the week! Winnie#86

  24. I hope the renovations aren't too bad and you can carve yourself out a space to create! Love the embossing board -- thanks for sharing!!

  25. Great idea. Love the Christmas card. Thanks for stopping by. Happy crafting #5

  26. Hi Nikki, neat embossing pad - I do like making my own things when I can!! Hope you can find a space in all the upheaval to craft - I'm sure it will be worth it! Thanks for visintg me, Cindy

  27. This is like when we put the toys away from the kids for awhile... when you bring them back it's all new and shiny to them ;o) Love how you have managed to find a little creative area to play in!!!!



  28. I did remeber you said you were moving, it does take soooo long to get organised! (Sez me in a messy craft room with no room!) Have a great week, hope you get your space sorted!

  29. Clever embossing mat. Now following your blog via email. Am posting your blog candy on my sidebar.

  30. Love that embossing mat - now I have bought two! Never mind. I bought two (in America) and cut them iln half - now I use the one half more than the big one but the others I gave away. With your tip (sisters make) I can do some more and give them to other friends. Thanks!
    Well, congrats on the move, do hope all goes well and that you are very happy in your new home. Am sure you will soon 'carve out' that special place for yourself. It could be the first room to be completed!
    Sorry I am so late - first I got hooked on cleaning (yes cleaning) and then I had to play catch up on my blog replies so I did the numbered ones first but hey ho, here I am and the wish is still the same - Thanks for visiting me, Happy WOYWW and have a good week. Hugs, neet 13 xx

  31. Hoping everything goes OK. I would dread moving.
    Please count me in for the candy and have a great weekend.

  32. You must be so excited. Wish you all the best and a big nice craft place on your new home ;)
