All I Can Say Is Break Out the Cute!

I'm expecting a family guest that will be staying with us for a little while so my spare room/craft storage room has to be cleaned and re-located.  It is a challenge to say the least.  According to what it is, if I haven't used it in the last year or two respectively, I'm giving it to a great charity here in Lexington.  The challenge is...

1.  getting the strength and wisdom to put it in the charity box; and
2.  moving what I want to keep into the studio!

So not only I'm I cleaning out a spare room, I'm having to go through my studio with the same rule and clean it out so I can fit everything I want to keep in one room. My mind is not wrapping itself around this too well. 

On top of that I've been investigating all the new products coming out over the next few weeks and months and I have a list of products I really want to have BUT there has to be room.  You can see my favorites list of CHA sneaks on Pinterest.

My goal over the next few weeks is to dive into my older stash and scrap/craft it.  Cross your fingers with me.

This is a cutie layout I did using My Minds Eye Alphabet Soup girl and boy collection.  I believe this goes back three summers ago.  Thu it is from my older stash.

 Note:  the chipboard animals do not come with bows!

Little Honey's disclaimer: the bows in my hair is Grandma's idea.  I was helping her try on pink bows to see which one she liked. LH already like to play "dress up."

Did I say "cute?"  This week is Cute Week.  I'm trying to practice "What I Learned" when it comes to cute.  I added a bit of "funny" by adding ribbon to all the animals. I think this is the first time I've ever used "cutesy" chipboard animals on a layout. I like the ribbon layering on this layout.  My journaling is handwritten.

Do you have some creative ideas about storage?

Have a Crafty Day!

  12. Debby: This layout is SUPER cute (I am also a lover of MME products). And much like you, the new CHA releases will surely be too darling to resist; even though we all have more than enough to last a lifetime. I found your blog through TwoPeas, and I would love to become followers of one another's blogs. If you are interested, please stop by to take a peek, follow if you'd like, and I will do the same with your permission. So good to find your lovely blog.
    Blessings,

  15. Hi Debby. I just wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog. I did pop right back here yesterday and became a follower right away. I'm looking forward to seeing more of your beautiful creations. Also, my daughter is at Bible College in Lancaster, California. It's a very conservative Fundamental Baptist College. Thanks for asking. I look forward to talking with you more.
    Blessings,
    Karen
