Just because

Just because I said that I was going to clean my craft room doesn't mean that I actually did. I did have every intention of working on it. My plan is to (at least for the moment) focus more on creating with paper. That being said, I want to organize my craft room so that the things I use for that are more readily accessible and organized making the whole thing more efficient.
Yeah, go ahead and laugh but I really did think I could do it. That was until I had an idea. All it takes when cleaning the craft room is one spark, a glimpse of one thing, a passing thought and all efforts are lost.

Instead of a clean craft room I made another card.


No pictures of the craft room as it's still a giant mess. I finally put a new ink cartridge in my printer so I was able to try this out. The bird is a png file I had on my computer. I sent it to my cricut machine and through the cricut it sends it to my printer. My printer prints the bird with a black border around the paper. The printed paper gets attached to a cutting mat and inserted into the cricut which cuts out the picture. I could print the picture and try and cut it out myself but there is no way I could cut it as cleanly, neatly and as fast as the cricut machine does.  I love this machine

  1. It is beautiful. Just because the room is cluttered, it doesn't mean you HAVE to neaten it. If you dread it, then don't do it. In fact, it looks like you create better when it is the way it is now. Which, by the way, when you showed, us did not look all that bad. Plus, it you clean it, then you won't be able to find stuff. Every time I start taking things to Goodwill and re-arranging, then I can never find anything,

  3. I'm never going to understand how that machine works until I see it in action. I know about starting one thing and getting side-tracked onto another except for me it is nothing as wonderful as creating something. With me it's usually something like wiping the window sills and then washing the windows and then...
