Picture says it ALL!!!

This has been me all week it seems. Well, some of my not finishing my rooms is due to illness, but I admit...I want to craft more than clean up and move the room out. I have made some progress. Trying to find a few nooks and crannies in the new area to be able to put the large Ikea floor and wall shelving. I'll get it done....just keep me in prayer for energy, no pain in joints and muscle, and to keep my stomach settled the rest of the week. Pics to come soon.  In the mean time, Enjoy your week and remember to spend time with family to make some daily memories that you can journal about in your scrapbooks. 
Hugs and stay well to all.  Happily Scrapbooking & Crafting My Memories~~Sandra V.

Judy T. I am so glad you are excited about your win. I will be shipping it out soon to you. AND, Thanks so much for the wonderful shout out on your blog this morning. I really do appreciate that.

To all my new followers, I will be adding you to my "Crafty Friends I Love To Follow" list on my side bar as I revisit this weekend. I have visited a few of you and let me say, I am enjoying visiting  your blogs. So many talented Ladies and Gentlemen. Can't wait to get you on my list
In the meantime, Have a wonderful St. Patty's Weekend.

Thank you again to all my followers. I plan on sharing more as soooooon as I can get this scrap area meshed together and functional. Today is a beautiful day. I have my grandson and we will be spending as much as we can outside.  Got to live life in order to have memories to scrapbook and craft on.


OK here it is...... The winner of my Blog Follower Giveaway. 
DRUM ROLL.....DRUM ROLL.......  
JUDY from Blue Jeans, Coffee, and Friends.....

Judy said...Sweet! I will for sure pass along the word of this fabulous give away, and display it on my blog. Thanks for the invite, and the chance to win.
send me your snail mail and I will be glad to get 
your prize package out to you.

We reached 100 and I am so thankful to those of you who have stayed with me through the last year and a half or so and to my newest followers too. This has been an awesome outlet for my crafty side and just meeting new people who love crafting from all over the world is fantastic. 
Seems most of us have the same dream of more Organization and time in our crafty spaces/rooms.

Hopefully I can start sharing some of my changes in a week or so. It's been a rough few weeks/month trying to make the change from a craft room to one wall, but I am getting there. I have stored some items for later giveaways and I have made a donation box that will go to a community organization at our next Girls Day Out Crop/Craft Day

Going through everything in my craft room has made me realize I have had many items just sitting here way to long (the word..hoarder.. has come into my brain) and decided I'll never use them.
So, It's time to let go and give to those who are in more need and will be put to good use. Our GDO team has been looking into various organizations that could use crafty tools and supplies. On the list are...
Project Runaway/Youth Villages, Alzheimer Facility, Boys/Girls Club. We are doing our research on each. All of these are great choices and I hope to see many of our Crafters donate to this in April.
Got to run, have my Grandson and he's keeping me busy this evening. Love this little guy.

In the mean time, I am packing up some more of my craft room and looks like it will be a few more weeks before I'll have access to crafting. But, I have a better plan for the wall space now and we are working to reach that organized goal... Is there any organization plans that lasts more than a day in a scraproom/wall space?  LOL!!!
Thanks for being patient.

I have to say..I will need to plan ahead better on 
my idea next time. I am having to wait for some items 
to dry (after thought on initial plan). This will be a two part Post.
In the mean time, just a partial peek at the project in progress.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Do take time to check out my tab pages above for other projects or continue to scroll down for other posts. Do have a wonderful crafty weekend and I hope to hear from you in my comments.

I am hoping to be able to do and share more on my blog this year once I get everything moved (about 6 days behind my schedule..errr!).  Do be patient, I am taking pics to show my full room deconstruction to a shared space set up. It really is not easy down sizing. Pray I can complete this undertaking in the next few weeks. I have had to slow down this week due to the LUPUS..eeek! But, I am pressing on and when I am ready for furniture to be moved, I hope those who volunteered will still be available. Thank you in advance.....Very heavy furniture to this is not something I can do by myself. (It's a pain getting older...LOL!!)
