Sunday Scrappin' #8

Sunday Scrappin’
My ta-da's this week: Not much craft-wise- I think the only thing I've created was helping my daughter learn to use her new princess fashion plates toy. ;) In related news, though, DH moved my (unassembled) craft cabinet and helped me move my craft table downstairs, to this room where the computer is. Today's project is to get the cabinet put together and then I will finally have a designated craft space. :)

My to-do's: Thank you notes-- I haven't made or sent any since Christmas yet. Whoops! I also need to get busy on some swaps that are due in a few weeks- a 6x6" recipe swap, for one. And, of course, the above mentioned craft cabinet.

This week's bonus question: Do you prefer to stick with only big name-brand supplies (Creative Memories, Stampin' Up, etc.) or do you usually buy less expensive supplies? I am a bargain-hunting, thrift store shopping kind of girl in every other aspect of life, so of course that applies to my crafts as well. I do love Stampin' Up, but I simply can't afford a lot of their stuff. My supplies often come from Odd Lots, WalMart, the Dollar Tree, and wherever else I can find inexpensive ways to feed my habits.

If you do any sort of paper crafts (not just scrapbooking), I hope you'll join us over at Sunday Scrappin'!


  1. Congrats on the craft cabinet/table/designated space! I AM GREEN OVER HERE! You should take a picture of that as it is QUITE the TADA! ;-) Good luck on your thank you notes this week, I too have sorta been lazy about that *sigh*, think I'll make the kids do it ;-)

  2. Sounds like your cabinet will be handy to help you get organized. For me, my problenm is that I never put things back. lol :)

    Thanks so much for hosting this meme. I am really looking forward to participating each week. Great motivation. :)

  3. What a great blog! Thank you for visiting mine and for joining the craft challenge! I love your meme idea... I'll have to see how my Sundays work out (they are usually my busiest "quiet" day of the week with four young kids). heehee I get the gang all dressed and off to church, then when we get home, the day is jam-packed. I'll try though! I'm off to check out your 3 minute retreat link (I could probably use it)! =)

  4. I hope to see pictures of your cabinet in its space soon! I definitely can't wait to get my own scrap area!

    What do you do with a recipe swap? Do you just write out a recipe? Or decorate the card, as well?

  5. Congrats on having your own craft sapce. I recently got my own space, moved from the Kitchen table to my own room and what a difference it makes. Enjoy!

  6. Congrats on the craft place of your very own!!! :o) Exciting!
