Another relaxing, slow and steady day around here today. It's 1:14 pm and all I have accomplished is walking the dog, excercising and eating lunch ... meh ... it's all good ... I'm really diggin' this relaxed pace ... but ya, I know, it's likely just a matter of time before all this relaxing bites me in the ass and I'm all stressed out about next weeks Customer Appreciation Night! I really SHOULD get cracking on making samples of projects with all my new toys ... but ... not enough pressure yet, I guess. Every time I hit the craft room lately I end up organizing instead of crafting. (Organizing is my second favorite thing to do ... after crafting / mess making). I generally only get into this mode every December/January. I can't MOVE for the *stuff* and the organizing begins. Of course you know how I am ... once I start a project I pretty much do nothing else until it's done. I figure another 2 days should just about do it. THEN I'll work on those projects. Of course I'm also telling myself it isn't something that HAS to be done! Right? I mean REALLY ... sure it would be NICE to have samples but if I don't does anyone die or lose a limb? No. I'll do what I can when I can ... in the mean time, the organizing continues!
Wanna see how I organized my Framelits?? Of COURSE you do!!! I LOVE this project - I had it done in NO TIME ... and felt really good about using up products I had kicking around in my craft room (I KNEW it would all come in handy one day! *lol*) So here is what I made:
These metal boards I had aren't available for purchase - they were custom made a few years ago thanks to the genius that is Tamye Dunbar. She had these frames made that are able to hang on a wall after being decorated - generally to be used as bulletin boards or nice, framed pieces of art showcasing family pictures etc. ANYWAY ... you can't buy
THESE anywhere but you can always use a dry erase board, a picture frame, plywood, cork board, that stuff with holes that your husband hangs in the garage to hand his tools on (ys, I know it has a name ... can't think of it *lol*) ... ANYthing would work. You simply cover your board/frame/wall with some pretty DSP (that I KNOW you are hoarding for just such projects!!!) and attache the magnetic tape to it in any way you like! The magnetic tape I used was bought from *that place* for $4.99 ...
K. I really SHOULD be doing something more productive so I'll run ... pop in again soon to see the cute little treats I made using the new FREE Sale-a-brations designer paper (available Jan 28th!!!). Until then - have a stampy day!!
