Birthday Card for Hope

card for hope

Thanks to Aaron Brown for the inspiration for this card.  I followed the instructions on her video but used the Daydream paper (retired).  I made this for my niece Hope.  She will be 6 on October 31st and she is the smartest 6 year old in the world!  Well, I’m a little biased.

H2H Challenge - From Your Heart to Ours

We were asked to share our creative space this week and to show any organizational tips we have. Well, my creative space is my dining room. I have a combination dining room/living room off of the kitchen. We really don't use either room for what it was intended. I have my living room pretty much set up as an office with my desk, my computer and book shelf with printer. Now, I do use my dining room from time to time - for special occasions or when I have people over for dinner - which is seldom.

So here is what my dining room table looks like most of the time.
I use a lot of Longaberger baskets for organization. I have all my Cuttle Bug embossing folders and Nesties stored upright in a basket. Notice the 2 labels on my CB? I never can remember which plate goes where so I labeled a cheat sheet right on the top - one for embossing, one for cutting.

This is where most of my stuff is stored. I have Cropper Hoppers for my paper storage. Another basket for my stamp storage and I found a $1 storage bin at Target (in the floor) to store more stamps in - I moved all my holiday stamps there - Christmas, Easter, Halloween.

A close up of my stamp storage basket.

My secret place for storing items is on the chairs. I pile them full of stuff and slide them up under the dining room table, clean off the top of the table, sometimes throw on a table cloth and the dining room looks almost normal =) Unless someone wants to actually SIT at the table!

Thanks for looking!
