Things have been really crazy around here for the past week. My 14 year old daughter broke her ankle last Monday during Cheerleading. So we have had ER visits and Orthopedic doctor visits. It was a clean break and it was still aligned so no surgery and no pins. Thank goodness. She is in a cast for at least 6 weeks. We go back next week to check it again. She is still pretty swollen. She is all depressed and frustrated as their Comp is on March 14th and she can't compete. But she will be able to go to support her team. She is so bored and it is so hard to keep her sitting still with her foot up. She is 14 and she is her mothers daughter after all. LOL I do have some pictures on my camera that I have to put on the computer and then I can upload. i just have to find the time to do it.
Hope everyone is having a good week.

My new room

Finally finished organizing my new room. My husband had the best idea yet and that was to switch rooms with my daughter (so she would take the smaller room and I would then have the bigger one.) She was all on board with it. She loves the smaller room and always have. I have so much more room in here. We really took advantage of the vertical space. I still need curtains but that may take a while. I don't sew and I just never know what to pick out. LOL The walls were already purple, my favorite color, so we didn't have to pain but I will need to do some touch ups. Of course I will always be making changes in it but that is the life of a scrapbooker. LOL thank you for looking and have a great day.

Looking in to my room from the door. Isn't it beautiful?

My awesome and amazing husband bought me the slated wall board at a scrapbook store that was going out of business (sad that she went out of business) It was 8'x4' but we cut it down so I can put them around the room. I only have 2 up, still don't know where I will put the rest yet. This one has all my loose pattern pager and my most used tools. (he also bought me all the 12x12 paper trays and the shelves at the same store.

The one straight ahead has all my solid cardstock in order of color.

This is my cricut station as well as my Sizzix Texturz Botique. Love them both so much!!! The bottom 4 drawers on the bins holds all my scraps. 3 colors in each and then each color has its own clear bag. Yes I am an organized freak. I can't work any other way.

We put all my Michael's cubes up on the dresser not only does it make it easier for me to get things but it is less stress on the bottom cubes. All my paper packs are in the middle row on each end. I am so addicted to paper but the funny thing is I don't think I bought one of those paper packs. My husband (did I say how amazing and wonderful he is yet) got them all for me.

the big move.

Ok. so i don't have any projects right now because we switch my studio with my 14 year old daughters room. I needed more space and she wanted a smaller room so that worked out perfectly. Yesterday we did all the switching. (I am too old for all that physical work) But we got her room basically set up, she just has to put a few things away. And when my awesome; amazing husband came home from work he hung my slated walls (that I just got) and then put the 12x12 paper trays up and then we started to organize some more. I have a long way to go but i will get there.
I will have to post some pictures with my kids helping put up the walls. And I promise once my room is done I will post those pictures too. I am so happy and so excited. I don't want to go to work today. I want to go in my room and organize it. My hubby had to drag me out of it last night so we could eat and relax some. LOL
