Kids craft table

A couple of weeks ago I saw a Facebook post about a local school, that had recently been sold, selling off a bunch of furniture. I swung by while Megan was in ballet class and picked up 2 kids desks (classic metal with laminate wood top/ $2.00 each) and a large kids table for $5. This thing has a solid wood top and two cubbies. I had no clue if the table would fit in my craft room, but if not I was only out $5.

I had to do some rearranging (the dresser that was under the ribbon rack is now in one of the closets) but the table fits perfectly! Here are some pictures of the girls working on Birthday cards for a couple of friends.

The kid's art supplies are in the pink and green bins to the left of their table. I just picked up some round  pink storage ottomans (from Target) that are the perfect height for the girls to sit on at this table and will add some more storage to the room.

Baby Shower Gift

Finally got back in my craft room this weekend in order to make a baby gift for a friend. I stamped these onesies, added some cute little coordinating pants, and made a card. I also gave her a big box of diapers, but you do not need a picture of those! All supplies are Papertrey Ink except for the owl, butterfly and birds stamps.

For the card I used some new dies (Limitless Layers and the Edgers #1 Collection), score-tape and glitter, and layered some ribbon. I wish that I had added something else to the blue layer. Embossing, or maybe some score lines...

After I wrote my message on the inside you could see the writing under the edge detail (I only cut the front panel) so I added another layer of blue to the bottom of the card. I liked it better the first way... but I still think it looks nice! Next time I am going to cut both edges of the card at the same time so that I do not have to worry about it.

New Camera!!!!!

I just got a new toy camera, a Canon 60D! We call it the "boyfriend" (my bestie calls her's her husband.. but I already have one of those). So.. there may not be many crafty posts up the next couple of weeks as I learn how to use my awesome new boyfriend, but there should be lots of pictures! Forgive the quality/ composition/ lighting etc as I learn how to use settings other than "auto" on this amazing camera! Eric took the one of Scout.. I took the rest
