Enjoy my take on my mini album!

Weekend project - Paint and organized Office/Craft Room

I decided late on Friday that I wanted to paint and organize our office/craft room spending many waking hours to get everything done by Sunday at 5:30 am (what was I thinking - LOL). 

The color of the room use to be a yellow but now it's a hint of violet and the fun part is, my husband left this weekend for a golf tournament and he has no idea that I made these changes. Hope he loves the new look. I know that I am very happy how it all turned out and now when I am crafting in my room, I know where to find everything I need to be creative. ENJOY!

PAY IT FORWARD!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pay it Forward

I found this over at berlykim37, Kimberly's blog - .. she is doing this pay it forward.. so I thought.. what a great idea.. :)

"Pay It Forward" is the idea of blessing someone with a random act of kindness without expecting anything in return. It’s passing on a kindness, hoping that your recipients will do the same, and forming a never-ending chain of goodwill. But it isn’t only kindness, it is also a means to connect and share instead of just keeping it to ourselves.

"I promise to send an original creation to the 1st 5 people who leave a comment here. They must, in turn, post this, and send something they make to the 1st 5 people who comment on their status."

Here's what you need to do:

1. Leave a comment on this post. I will send a handmade gift to the first 5 commenters.

2. Create a post on your blog offering the same.

3. Send a handmade item to your first 5 commenters.

4. It must be sent to your 5 people sometime in 2011.

Please do not sign up unless you are fully committed to making your 5 items!
