Just a little Thank You card...

Since my mom is off work during he holidays, her company helped us with Thanksgiving Dinner.  So I made a Thank You card for her to take to them.  
All paper, ribbon and stamps from Stampin' Up!  Thanks for looking.

Just some valentine stuff...

It is hard to believe that the first weekend in February is over.  This month is going to fly by.  Next Monday is Valentine's Day, are you ready?  I have been working on a lot of gifts and cards.  I have been enjoying myself.  Here are just some of the things I have made:

Sorry the last photo is not very good. I should have taken the photo next to my window, it would have turned out so much better.  I saw it on the Spellbinders blog, and I thought it was gorgeous.  Mine did not turn out as pretty as hers, but I still liked it.

Thanks for looking.  Will try to post more pictures later.

Happy Weekend and Winner for RAK...

Good Saturday evening!  Hope it has been a great day for all.  I was able to finish up my valentine cards to go to my swap sister.  I will post a picture after I know she has received them.  :o)  I want to finish a couple more cards for friends and family.  I will post those as soon as I am done. 

And now the winner for the rak.  Here is a screen shot of the winning post number:

And the winning post was made by Nell, who said:
"I will also have to add you to my followed blogs. I have only recently gotten into blogging (even though I have not actually started my own yet). I pretty much still go to my local scrapbook store to use their punches and such. I figure it's just about time to start my own collection so I would love to be considered in your RAK. Thanks for doing this.


I want to thank everyone who joined!  I hope to be able to do this again, very soon.  Off now, to email Nell.  

Many hugs,

Hugs Lorie

What's on your worksdesk Wednesday...

Sending out a Thanks to everyone that has entered for the RAK, so far.  Keep 'em coming!  :o)

I have seen this on many blogs, showing what is on your workspace.  Julia over at the Stamping Ground does this every Wednesday.  She calls it WOYWW.  Well, I thought I would jump in and start showing my workspace:
This is for all the comments I got about how clean my area looked.  Well, girls, you have to remember that I had just done my cleaning and organizing.  It no longer looks clean!  But I love it like this!!  It means I'm creating!!  :o)

As you can tell from the pink paper, I am working on Valentines.  I am on pink overload!!  Well, not really, I love pink, so I not much chance that I will get tired of it.  

Please be sure and show a picture of your workspace.  I would love to see it!

My goof, your gain...

First off, wow...long time no blog.  I kept trying to get back into crafting, but I could not find any motivation or spark.  I think I may have finally found it.  I just hope that it sticks around for a while.  :o)

What helped me find my motivation was getting my craft area cleaned and switched around.  I now have a craft table to work on.  It is so nice to have a bigger space to work on my crafts.  Here are some mobile picks of the area (these were taken just after I finished my mini-makeover, it does look a little different now.)

I love my table area, right next to my computer/printer.  I can have my Martha Stewart score board right on the table, and leave it there.  I still have enough room in the middle to craft. It really does make me very happy!  :o)

While I was cleaning and organizing, I found that I had duplicate punches.  I have a Stampin' Up! small heart punch:

And a EK Success 1" circle punch:

I am offering these for a RAK.  Just leave a comment here on my blog, and I will use to pick a winner.  I will leave the RAK open until Friday (1/21/2011).  Good luck to everyone!  Have a wonderful Tuesday!
