My boss, while still in the Army, had to endure the heartache of her baby girl having open heart surgery. I wanted to give her something special in hopes of putting a smile on her face during such a scary time.  I pooled together with my coworkers and we came up with this idea and I had the honor of putting it together!  

McKenzie is the baby's name.  Her nursery is done in shades of purple with butterfly accents!  I wanted something that she can have as an adult as well.  I thought a monochromatic LO would be perfect for something like this!  

 I really liked the idea of   Using silver accents with this.  I liked how subtle it was, yet still giving a nice pop of color.

Ok!  Here is what my new space looks like so far!  I'm so excited about it!  It's turning out perfectly!  I got so lucky with the cabinets!  I found them for a steal on a "yard sale" Facebook page for my town.  I got them all for $200!  My husband installed them all for me and then made the custom countertops!  They're awesome.  I have soooo much space for storage, cabinets are actually empty!  I still have quite a bit of work to do, but it's at least functional for now!  Yay!  So, the first picture is my big work space!  Most of everything I use on a daily basis is right here in the drawers and cabinets.  I can take pics of how I've stored everything inside if ya'll would like to see.  

The next pic, here of the window is where I'm going to keep all of my paper racks and my printer.  The hubs is currently working on a way for me to "stack" the paper racks.  What's on there now is a "prototype" as he likes to call it.  So, hopefully he can get that worked out for me.  I got the paper racks a while back ago when a friend of mine closed down her scrapbook store here in town.  She sold them to me for super cheap!  It was a great steal!

Over in this corner is where I will keep my new, fancy sewing machine that was my "out of the Army" gift from my husband.  I absolutely love it!  It's so easy to use and can do so many different things.  I've only done a few things with it so far.  I made the boys kilts and sashes for Halloween.  They wanted to be "Braveheart" for Halloween. It was surprisingly easy.

With this pic, I simply wanted to just show the curtains a bit.  I actually made these on my new machine the other day.  I fell in love with the fabric that I found a Joann's for 50% off!  It took me all of about 20 minutes!  It was so much easier than I expected it to be and the machine made it go so fast!

Well, there ya go.  That's my new space for now.  I will post updated pics once I get more done, or when it is finished.  Hopefully this week I can get some pics posted of some of the projects I've done recently.  

Ok! So I'm finally back online!  It's been a long time and it's been crazy!  We've moved into a new home, I'm out of the Army and im pregnant again!  I'm due in January with a little girl!  We are super excited!

Since beingg in the new house, my hubby has helped me start putting together an awesome studio/office for me!  It's almost finished, but not quite.  I can at least start working in there now!  I'm so happy to finally have a space to work/scrap/craft in!  It feels amazing.

I will post some pictures of the new digs asap as well as some of the small projects I e been able to get done here and there!  It's good to be back!

Change of perspective...

It's been an interesting year so far this 2014.  Recently I've discovered I have some unexpected "fans" of my blog, my scrappy work and my life in general.  After doing some thinking on the matter, I've decided to jump back into my wonderful world of glittered memories!!  My wonderful husband and I have FINALLY reached a point in our lives where we can truly move forward with everything!  Nothing stands in our way any longer!  It's such an amazing feeling!  No matter what life tries to throw at us, we will ALWAYS persevere and come out of it on top!  We've learned over the years that nothing can poison our relationship because, just like the fairy tales boast, true love conquers all and breaks all the curses!  Now, I will get off my soap box!  It's good to be back!  Will give a quick synopsis of the past several months shortly...stay tuned!

Hey guys!  I'm happy to show you my most recent TP Mini!  I'm really liking these a lot!  I have at least two more to do before Christmas!  This one was for another swap on scrapbook.com!  I have a few pics that I have to edit yet and a video.  The video is kind of quiet because I had just gotten my LO down for a nap after a fussy day.  Anyways....hopefully you can get the gist of it and enjoy!  Thanks for checking it out!!
