"powdered snow" and vintage french inspired ribbon!

i feel like I'm having blog post withdrawal...

you see I really haven't got to create much this week, what with the kids out for summer (which seems even busier than when they were in school!)

and.....because something else has been occupying my time

....drumroll please.....

a little while back Mr Keeper decided he was tired of my "stuff" steadily taking over the house

and he declared that we would convert our home office into "my" space

yay!!!! I was so excited

it's only a 9x9' space, but to have all my "stuff" in one place


to be able to make a "mess" and close the door


so this whole week has been moving "stuff" out (can't believe how much stuff was in there.....and how much more has to go back in)

and painting....and painting.....

well actually Mr Keeper has been doing the painting as he says I'm too messy of a painter, get it all over me (really??)

here's the before, way too dark for such a small room

lightening it right up, with "powdered snow"

sure took a lot of coats to cover that green

I promise to show you when it's all done!

anyway, back to the creating thing, I can't show you what I have actually made yet in case special birthday person it is intended for reads my blog:-)

but I have been playing with my stamps again, so much fun

here is some of the ribbon I've been making

isn't it yummy, such a classy way to tie up a gift, or a pile of books or....

well, back to organising all the "stuff"

happy days,

You are a lucky girl getting your own space! That is so exciting and just imagine how organised you will feel when you move everything in just as you like it! Your ribbon is gorgeous, I love how it looks! xx

Gorgeous! I'm so glad I found your site through the link party. I'm going to check out your etsy shop next.

Hi Tracey,
Every girl deserves a room of her own, and I'm so glad that you are going to have one. I know it will be lovely.

Your ribbon is gorgeous, I love the dress design. Ooh!

Thanks for commenting on my blog! I love that ribbon you've made. I've used strips of fabric as gift wrap ribbon, but I never thought to stamp it first. I'll have to give it a try! I've been really wishing lately that I could have an actual room for my craft stuff...or at least a wall of built-in cabinets.

Oh,I have been so very busy...{much the same story all over blogland}I have so missed your creativity. Your little room is going to be soooo lucky little girl...sweet dreams... Rosie

That's every crafters dream. Their own space no matter how small. May your new space inspire you to create and may you share those creations with us that we may "copy" them (with due credit of course)! You always have such great ideas.
