My Scrap Happy Place

I love my scrapbook area. It's been a challenge getting everything organized since I live in a tiny place. Ironically the more organized I get the more challenging it becomes to find the things I know I have. My best friend Hazel always tells me that I am the most organized disorganized person she knows (and now I know what she's talking about). It can be very frustrating.

One of the things I love best about my craft area is my view. I am really looking forward to the warmer weather so that I can leave my sliding glass door open and look at my beautiful view as I am working on my creative endeavors. I'm also hoping that this will help provide some much needed muse. I've felt a little creative dry spell lately.

A new look for an old piece of furniture.....

I finally did it - I have been wanting to do something to alter the appearance of this 3 drawer chest for quite some time now. It has taken several attempts but I am finally happy with the results.

I used one of my favorite cardstocks from The Angel Company called Amberley Grace. I used Matte Mod Podge to adhere the paper to the drawers and will add a couple more coats to seal and protect. I love it!!! All I need to figure out now is what kind of knobs to add plus I still think the drawers need something else but what??

If you have any ideas or suggestions please share them with me.

My Little Guy

This is one of my favorite photographs of my little Hercules. He is such a sweetheart and I've always wanted him to have his own yard. I was determined that one day that dream would come true and in August of 2008 it finally became a reality.

That's why I love this photo so much. It's the look on his face that melts my heart because somehow he knows that he is finally King of his own yard. Ironically he has no idea that this isn't a large yard but to a 5 pound Pomeranian it's huge.

He has been such a blessing in my life and I love to see him so happy!!!
