My New Ribbon Storage.

Thank you Wende for suggesting gutters.  I have seen others use gutters but I don't have any wall space left. So this is what I came up with.  I just installed the shelf over my closet and decided that I could hang the gutters from it. 

Snip and Fold Teeny Mini - Following the Paper Trail inspired.

During Christmas Laura made  a mini using Christmas paper

I decided to make a Valentine theme version.  So this is what I did.

Pages use 1 piece of 6x12 paper.  Cover is 2 pieces of chipboard 2.5x4 covered on both side.  Easy peasy, fun and fast to make.

Added tags stamped with Studio G stamps and some punched flowers.

Here is the whole house - not done yet

I need to hire a new painter.  Outside paint job not the same on front.

Progress post on Holly Jolly house

installing the sleigh and rheindeer.  I think they are cute.  Cut from Christmas cart with Gypsy.  Cuts aren't great because they are cut at 2.5" but I like them

I'm Catching Up.

I did 2, count them 2, one page layouts today.  First layouts I have done since May.  As you can see these are pretty old.  2004 and 2005 family Christmas pics.  I kind of forgot how much fun layouts can be.

Important Discovery today

I bought some of the new bottles of the Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive.  Don't like the new cap/nozzle.  Well do you know that if you take off the cap and unscrew the red nozzle, the nozzle from the old style bottles will fit in the bottle and the old cap will screw right on.

I was prepared to refill my old bottle from the new but that is not necessary.

Just thought I would share.
