Update on my Scrap Space!!!

My scrap space is coming along. My husband has worked hard on my space. He installed granite countertops and this week he installed laminant flooring in our family room, which is where my scrap space is located. I thought I'd post some pictures of how my space is coming along!

This is where I organize my pages in progress. When I go the my LSS I take my pictures and match up the pictures to the paper and embelishments. When I get home, I slide them in these slots to keep everything organized and so I'll remember what I bought the stuff for.

This is all of my glitter & paint. It's hanging right above my workspace so it's easy to access when the mood strikes me.

This is where I've started to store my embelishments. As I get new things, I sort them by color into these jars. I've got quite a bit still in boxes from our move. But I'm slowly getting everything out.

I have a cabinet in storage that I'm going to paint and bring in to store the majority of my stuff in. Until then, it will have to sit in boxes. But I'm thrilled with my space so far!!!

Two days left for the design team call!!! It's so exciting the response we've been getting for this DT call!!! So many very talented ladies applying! Finalists will be announced this weekend!!!

We sold out of our February Kit, so I posted a picture of our March kit a little early. If you signed up for our newsletter, you've already seen it! But here's a peak for the rest of you!

In keeping with my new years resolution, we've starting a weight loss boot camp on our message board. I've been inspired by Oprah's weight loss challenge. THIS IS THE YEAR!!! I've already started exercising. I took my girls for a bike ride today. I hate exercise, but MAN DOES IT FEEL GOOD WHEN I'M DONE!!! My goal this week is to exercise 5 times and drink water all day. I'm such a bad water drinker. So that will be a tough goal for me! But I can do it for me!!

Wooohooo!!! The weekend is here!!! It's already off to a fun start. We had my brother's birthday dinner and we came back to my house and played cards. I LOVE playing cards. It was so much fun.

Tomorrow my mom and I are going to try and get one last shopping trip at my favorite scrapbook store. It's closing its doors. I'm sooo sad. It's an awesome store. Archivers is coming to town and I'm sure this store wants to get out while they're still ahead. I'm sad to see it go. I love to support small business owners.

WE HAVE TWO FEBRUARY KITS LEFT!!! Woooohoooo!!! February is almost sold out! I'm so excited!!!

The boxes are rolling in from CHA. I think I'm going to have to buy some shelves! LOL I don't know where I'm going to put it all!! But it's so exciting to see it come in!! I'm like a kid in the candy store everytime a box comes! Even my 4 yr old gets excited everytime the doorbell rings she screams "It's the brown guy! He's brought more scrapbook stuff Mom!" meaning the UPS guy in his brown outfit and brown truck. So cute.
