Time to share more pictures of my wonderful studio! Here is my collection of ribbons, I was lucky to get this ribbon cabinet from a friend, I just love how I can stand there and choose what colour suits my card! In the large cupboard i have quite a few large clear containers that house my rub-ons, stickers, alphabets stickers, paper embellishment, all stacked and labelled for easy access! Tim Holtz made and I had won it at a charity auction!! I can't tell you how excited I was to win it and I soooo treasure it!!

I thought it's about time I showed off my studio on my blog! It's our double garage that I have converted to a creative studio, I'm sooo lucky to have it but it's also my job so it's great I can escape and create!! I have a passion for all things old as you can see and I'm really pleased in how it turned out! Most items are family heirlooms but some like the old typewriter I managed to pick up at a local junk yard for $30!! So this is what you see when you first walk in, I have covered the garage roller doors with long pieces of calico fabric that have been sewn together then I made a doily banner to hang at the top, I just love, love, love doilies and I'm very fortune that I have wonderful family and friend who feed my addiction!!

Okay, what do you do if you need Christmas cards in a hurry? You pull out your stash of already created backgrounds!! I have an overflowing box of UFO's and most are these wonderful backgrounds that I have created when I've been doing demos for classes and for my feature in 'Cardmaking, Stamping & papercraft called 'The Classroom'. These have been lying around for ages and finally I have a use for them! I trimmed them down, layered them on my cards front, added a Stampin' Up! (discontinued, sorry) stamped image on top and a bow, viola!! I got ten cards made in half an hour, mind you I have about 100 more to make!
