So what to do with your Halloween Pumpkin when you do not carve it..
Make it into a Thanksgiving Pumpkin..
We moved at the end of December to our brand new home. I still have not unpacked my house and of course my craft room is going to be the last thing on the list to unpack.
Today, while we had some nasty weather I decided to play in my craft room with items I could find.. so this is what I wound up making.
Well we finally have moved out of our apartment and into our first brand spanking new home. Our furkids love their huge backyard but I think any size yard would be great for them opposed to what they had before nothing.
We are still moving in and you never realize how much crafting stuff you have until you have to pack it up and move it…and then put it all back up…that is what I am doing right now…not sure how long it will take me to finish my work space but I do have it in semi working order.
I am hoping to get it my room in to full functioning order before the end of January but I still have the rest of the house to unpack as well…not fun…
I have really missed being creative…I am ready get back to business…
So I went to my local stamping store.. which I love. It is locally owned and operated and you can find some great items to oooohhh and ahhh over…it is a candy store for your eyes.
I love to check their charity section. It is a small box where they have stamps that have been donated or that are no longer used within the store. I actually made out like a bandit today. I went straight to the box and found tons of awesome Tim Holtz Stamps for $2.00. Yeah be jealous.. LOL
I love when I get a big bag of stuff for not a whole lot of moo-la.
I really shouldn’t be buying anything since it will be packed away soon and stored for our move. I can not wait to FINALLY have my own room for crafting….my own creative space.
I am also in the process of working on samples for a friend to show her her wedding. I am hoping that she loves the samples I have to give her. I will post so you can see them when I start the process.
I also bought recently a lightbox to help me take better pictures of my projects. I had been looking for one for about a year but really didn’t want to pay the ticket price. One day I was on one of my favorite sites Tanga.com and saw it on a special for $26.50 and I knew I had to jump on it. I also have a VIP status since I buy from them all the time so I get the best pricing….LOVE THEM…..
I am looking forward to using it for the first time but it might have to wait until I move..
Here are updated pictures of my container garden that I am growing on my apartment patio.
I have been buying more plants. I went to the 99 cents store in Far North Dallas to see if they had any pots and I found some good size pots and tower pots.
I planted tomatoes in the the pots and herbs in the tower.
