This is my fave creation My desk made with one door from the the house
and the old baseboards almost 100 years old cut down and sanded by me
and the DH helped me too seeing he had to on some of the cutting :)

This lovely card this stamp I fell in love with the 1st time I saw it
Just love the sentiment with it so perfect
From Paper Wings

A collection of Project life cards for my sister 
Using the Limited Runs Halloween Release

I just loved how rich looking this card turned out using all those reds and orange papers

Have a fun time celebrating it !!!!
and to new adventures in 2015

So here's my space this week
Painted a little board with chalkboard paint to see how it looks just got to find the chalk in my house somewhere to test it out or try and paint on some word or something :)
Went through my paint brushes and removed all the old nasty ones that are great for touch ups around the house but horrible to paint fine details with cut it down in half. 
So the only new stash on my desk is some glue. Was playing around with my die cut tags and see how they might look on something may be the wrong colour but it's the size you want as a sample.

 So here is a painting I've been working on it's still a little raw at the moment I want to add in more details on the branches but looking at the picture now it's not to bad in Real life I want some more detail in it.  So that's all my stuff going on for the new year and If you want to see everyone else's space pop over to Julia's and check out everyone else's desks.

Happy New Year & WOYWW

My fave five Christmas Cards of 2014

My Fave Five Christmas Cards of 2014 

So here they are I've picked some of my more CAS ones this time around but I loved making them
This guy is from Limited Runs he just had to be in a forest
Abominable  Snowman
Just loved the blend of not normal colours
How can it not be christmas I just have to colour up a few LOTV stamps 
This is one of four our of a set I made up here 
The Yellow Bow the background paper says it all Christmas Polka hahaha
Now I know some people will not like this card but I laugh when I look at it and the sentiment was just to perfect for it - Oh I know this is some kind of wrong but I new who this card was for the minute I made it.

That's it for my faves I'm sure I could have picked more seeing I had a few to pick from
and that's not all of them either I had to make a few extras for some peeps that might have been missed and I didn't want to :)
You can check out Debby who host's this every year and perhaps even win some candy too
thanks for popping in 
Out of all the cards I have left there are only 2 and I don't want to part with them lol
hugs Nikki and

Pink Christmas

You have to make at least one or two pretty in pink Cards and I thought how about a Sweet Christmas card using Jenny from LOTV. The black paper wasn't dark enough so I made it more black and the pink flocked paper wasn't pink enough so I added in more to make it bright and bold and the glitter heart I've had for ages and am so happy to finally find it's place on a card. This card is already in it's new home and I found out it's beside none other then a PINK TREE what a surprize that is for me 
I made it to match her tree without even knowing it love it when it works perfectly for the person getting it :)

Now I know My space almost looks like it did last week but it is and it isn't. The whole desk has been moved into another room and I've realized I've got more stash then I thought so I'm going to have to start creating to use it all up and repeat the cycle lol. We've moved it and the computer into the smallest bedroom and the DH is sanding and painting the floors in the old craft room I have no problem being in the smaller room have to do some editing on my desk like replace the top of it and maybe buy a roll around caddy that will hide a lot of the stash that just makes it look very cluttered. So I'll be adding more stash to my stash for sale page seeing I'll be doing a winter clean out soon :)
 My New Quietfire Stamps so PRETTY!!! and of course I've used one too they are and to the right Some retired and LOTV Clear Mini Stamps.
So Check out what's going on everyone else's space at Julia's

I just realized I could join in this week for WOYWW so here's my space I've been writing all my Christmas cards for everyone I work with which is around 40 peeps plus all the one's I've mailed and to my close friends so I've made over 70 + cards
So my desk has a few additions at the moment as we are slowly starting to unpack some of our belongings and the boat belongs on a shelf and this is just the safest place at the moment and away from alot of the dust in the house
So I have my little card box that I store my fave christmas cards that I've had given to us over the years
Some of my cards I've made insert pages so just in case they need a extra Christmas card they can use the one I gave them. Why not have a card that can be reused. The christmas gift that keeps on giving :)
all in the envelopes are all done with just a tiny pile of left overs just in case I need some
So here's most of them all laid out I've made some more since all of these 

So check out everyone else's space at Julia's and Happy WOYWW

hugs Nikki
I'll pop around to as many people as I can.

It is that time of week again and I haven't really been crafting with paper crafts at the moment I've been sewing up a storm made a 72 inch Tree Skirt had the fabric for ages and just had enough to make it into a skirt the ribbon around it is from May Arts it's a lovely think red ribbon just perfect for under a tree. It took a while to pin the ribbon around it and keep it flat without making it flip up lets just say that took a good + hour and I had to keep going at a slow pace it does have a slit in it so it will sit over top the base but I want it to look seem less so it has just enough room for the bar in the center to peak through. Now to only dust off the messy tree ... maybe it will go up this year we aren't sure just yet due to still working on the house.
So Here is my space today not much still using the sewing machine finished the tree skirt and haven't done to much to make a mess on it. I did manage to sit in front of the tv to colour in a few images for my DT projects.
 So this is what I've moved onto I've moved everything off the floor so I can have more room for this seat cushion for kitchen banquette seat in our kitchen ... it just happens to be 72 inches long too. It's going to be a dark green faux suede so it will hide my messes and clean up easy. I'm sure I'll be the 1st one to make a mess lol

Thanks for looking I'm off to visit as many people as I can

It's that time of the week where we share our desks and all our creative chaos that is going on in our spaces well. I'm testing out a new digi I've been making for Limited Runs I like to colour them in 1st and see how they look so I can see if I missed a line or anything. On the right is a industrial light we are trying to figure out for our basement bathroom have to figure out how it will all connect what parts we will need to put it all together, 
 Happy WOYWW you can check out everyone else's space at Julia's you'll find it can get addictive and also I'm having a huge destash sale link at the top of the page in my links
The Pull back of my space was going through the attic looking through all the christmas stuff seeing I have so much to dust up there it's going to take a while as you can see the stuff dolls I stick under the tree on the right so it doesn't look empty until we get presents :)

Hugs Nikki
