The beginning of November has been treating me good so far. There's been a lot of meeting up with friends. There's a certain group of gals that I love to hook up with because they are always up for food, drinks, gossip and good times. We recently got together to celebrate Jen's Jen's 30th Pictured here with her cake...which I will add was pretty delicious. The Gelato on the side just topped it off! It was actually a rare occasion because I had my camera...I never remember my camera. So here are other photos of the evening
I love the one of Pam and her Big Bow! Just being silly! You wouldn't believe how many times it took us to get a decent group photo. I also got together with the girls we call Art Book Chicks. We get together once a month to learn new things, network and show and tell. Unfortunately I forgot my camera to this meeting :( However, my friend Nancie asked "How do you organize all your craft stuff in such a small space?" One word....ORGANIZATION! I try to keep all items pretty organized but when I start a project I have to pull everything out.
My everyday pens are organized by color in a drawer. The drawers you see are all located under my craft table. Plastic boxes are filled with pom poms, sequins and such. A Printers tray holds my scrapbooking embellishments and plastic trays hold paints, pencils, etc. Vintage luggage is my friend! It stores papers, books and projects! Now, what do I do with all this stuff? I have fun and make plush toys like this KittyThe free kitty pattern was from the wee wonderfuls website. I adore the kitty and so does Mochi (which is not a good sign). Well that's the update for now I hope all is well and to those who are first-timers to my blog welcome and please check back! Here's a short quote to leave you with "progression not perfection."
