Memory Frame – Quick & Easy!

My friend, Cindy, and I hung out yesterday and had a great “girl” day!  We went to lunch at Acadiana (great Cajun food), then went to a Half-Price Book Store Clearance Sale and browsed – could have probably spent hours there, but we had more to do…. I had seen a cute project made with a 12×12 memory frame, so earlier in the week, I went by Hobby Lobby and… Read More »

Spider Wreath

A few weeks ago, I showed you the beautiful beaded spider that came in my Frightful Wreath kit (136816): I had finally finished the wreath and today decided that I really wanted to hang it outside, but it’s not working very well.  First, I put it on the  outside of the door: It looked pretty good, but then the wind flipped it around and I didn’t want to lose it,… Read More »

Every week, Stampin’ Up! offers several products on sale, and I LOVE that the Hamburger Box die is on sale this week – regularly $42.95, this week for $32.21!!!  Here are some ideas using it.  See that big box in the front?  I used a folded-over piece of cardstock in the die to make the box super-sized!  I will be making a video showing how next week, so be sure… Read More »

The RV Crafting Studio Revealed

As I explained in previous posts, I converted the bunkhouse of my new fifth wheel RV into a crafting space.  I officially moved into the RV (I call it my tiny house) about a week ago, and have pretty much organized the space for working.  Someday I will tidy up more and take more pictures, but I thought you might like to see how you can organize your crafting, stamping,… Read More »

Almost moved in!

After making my craft studio mods and spending hours thinning out my belongings, I am almost ready to move in full-time!  The RV had to go into the shop this week to fix some little problems but it came home last night and I am about ready to actually sleep there!  And craft there, too!  Most of my supplies are already over there and my fingers are getting itchy to… Read More »

Clay Ornaments

Don’t you love making your own Christmas ornaments?  They can be used to decorate a tree, of course, but you can also use them to decorate packages.  Imagine a loaf of your special cranberry bread, wrapped in a ribbon with a cute ornament hanging off it?  Whether you live in an RV full-time, a house, or an apartment, I bet you still like to give gifts at the holidays! Every… Read More »

And Progress Continues….

I haven’t been at the RV much since my last post.  I did take some stuff from the bathroom and bedroom over and I put the DVD media shelf together.  Other than that, I have spent time at the house with my business (did some stamping and got ready for my team meeting) and I also went through my *stuff* one more time.  The first time I did a purge,… Read More »

RV Renovation – Day 2

Second day.  I am so tired.  Why am I doing this?  I know me and I know I must have a good reason, so let’s keep going! Yesterday was pulling apart.  Today is about putting together. The crafting space.  The desk used to be the bunk.  It is held up by some MDF panels and the bunk brackets.  The curtain rods have a 2-1/2″ return which makes them stick out… Read More »

RV Renovation – Day 1

The RV finally made it to San Antonio (though the auto-leveler is not working), but it is time to start turning that bunkhouse into a studio.  I must admit that it was scary pulling apart a brand new unit!! First up: remove the closet.  A closet seems like a good idea to have in a craft room, but I am going to put DVD shelving here instead and it is… Read More »
