Cards made for Secret Santa 2009

The team that I'm in at work decided to do a Secret Santa. The gift was to cost no more than $10. You could either purchase a gift for $10 or make something using materials to the value of $10. As I love craft, I decided that I would make some cards, using materials up to the value of $10. To assist me with this, I found a OSW inspired by Sandra Wingate of Paper, Pansies and Pachyderms blog. I also decided, because I left it so late, that I would only make cards up until midnight. I was starting at 9pm, and I figured midnight was late enough since I had to work the next day and I wasn't feeling very well.  Anyway, I managed to make six cards.  Below are the cards I made, which I'm really happy with and the person who received my Secret Santa was also very happy.

Anniversary Card

A friend of mine asked me to make him an anniversary card. I had a lot of flexibility, he said, make it girlie and pink, which are two of my most favourite themes. I find as I get older I am more partial to the colour pink, within reason.  The card I made was the flip flop album, inspired by Annette Rolls. I am very happy with the outcome and so is my friend. I can't wait for him to give it to his wife and here how she feels about it.

Craft Room Updated

As I am an organisation freak, I'm always looking for better ways to improve on my craft room. Recently I purchased some small bookcases for my craft room and I am very happy with how they have really helped my craft room come together to look and feel better organised. I am finding that I can easily find items and access them better.  Below are updated photos of my craft room, which have also been added to my slider.
