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!
