Finding Time & Space for Crafting

As we settle in, I am finding some time and space for my crafts. It is good to get back to some stamping and scrapbooking.

As we unpacked, I realized that the craft closet would not work out. We need that space to store other items (cleaning supplies, medicine, etc.) away from Alex. He is at the age where baby proofing does not work as much as in the past, and he still gets into lots of things. My alternative was to set up my craft supplies on a bookcase, which I also used for craft supply storage in our first apartment. It is okay for now, but I had to move my good punches out of Alex's sight. He really likes to play with punches.

I am starting to work on my Project Life album. I like that I can buy the components in pieces over time. I am just starting with the Turquoise Core Kit, the Design A page protectors, and the supplies I already own.

I was inspired to make this simple card from Shelli Gardner's blog. I just used kraft card stock, Smooch spray, a stamp, brown ink, and a heart punch. It was a fun way to ease back into card making.

Awe, scrapbook storage with a little one. Fortunately, my 3.5-y-o leaves my stuff alone unless I'm messing with it. My stuff is upstairs and she doesn't play up there by herself so she shouldn't get into it unless I'm nearby. She does like messing with the stuff though, whenever I'm creating. :)
