A while back I posted about all the possibilities you could enjoy with five minutes of dedicated creative time. Today, amid an insane (even for a Monday) schedule I took a few minutes to play with some goodies.
Tag, canvas flowers, and paper is by Jillibean-Soup (a personal fave company -so much kraft love!); ruler ribbon is by the girls’ paperie (another fave!) Oh, and both are friends of Camp Scrap… so you can look for give-aways from them in class! Just a fun tag that is now ready to go onto my next girly page.
My tools used – you can see I just punched out a scallop circle and crudely cut into it in a swirl until I reached the middle. To make the flower I just held down the center and twirled it around until I liked the look. Quick, easy, cute!
Can I even tell you how much I LOVE these Jillibean-Soup goodies? I don’t think I can. The typed on flowers and tags as well as this particular gingham paper are just total faves.
Now I must go back into here… and yes I’m showing you a horrendously hideous picture. I have been keeping this “clean the studio” thing real. It’s documented at it’s worst as well as best. Ok, actually not at very worst because at one point I got stuck in the closet and couldn’t get to camera and had to clean/dig my way out and when I did it looked as it does below.
Want to know a secret? I’ll be posting “organization fun” all next week starting on May 31. Some fun ideas, some helpful hints, no perfect studios or professionally decorated/put together stuff though. If you want jaw-dropping beauty and to turn green in envy, I suggest you look at Kendra’s blog. I love her dearly, except I am jealous of her and her beautiful space just a teeny bit right now. I wish I had her vintage goddess-ness.
If you’d like some incredibly inspiring video on storing stuff by color (and just the eye candy that is Stacy’s home studio) then check out Stacy’s blog. I linked up to the page that has all her color posts that I’m so LOVING!
For now, I’ve enjoyed my creative break (and warming myself up to new ideas!) and I’m back to the cleaning/sorting/re-organizing grind. This week is PACKED with stuff, I’ll be here daily to check in with you, watch for a prize coming up very soon…
