1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Craft Studio: Work in progress on: July 25, 2011 07:50:56 PM
Sneak Peek:



My beautiful wife and I have been home improving fools since buying our first home in November. So far we've done all the work ourselves! We're pretty awesome girls lol We are basically painting and reflooring every single room.

Amazing woman that she is, she helped me do this over two days Memorial weekend. It combines my love of all things craft and it will be my library.

I feel so spoiled to FINALLY have a craft space. (I do scrapbooking, tile mosaics and photography mostly, recently getting into card making and some jewelry) See ya later kitchen table/ bed crafting! I am giddy with excitement, I'm sure everyone here can relate. It's not finished at all,... but I couldn't wait to post pics. I'll update with my progress!

Still to do: Paint trim, Window coverings, Install new light fixture, new door levers, rug, photos and various crap for walls, and book shelves, book shelves, book shelves! And um, you know, haul in all my craft stuff...

BEFORE: aka Beware the basement



Lets not even discuss that brown indoor/outdoor carpet with previous owner pet pee stains EWWWWW!!



Stage One:

Pyro the cat admires my floor



View from the closet (haha) The walls are less bright blue and a touch greener. More soothing... It's hard to capture true color




My desk- just waiting for my new iMac





CURRENTLY.... Still not finished but making progress!!

This is the far corner, some of my favorite photos on the ledge, the hanging jar holders on the wall hold beads, jewelry findings, scrapbooking brads etc. Most of the storage stuff came from Ikea



]

Another view of that wall. The brown thing on the left corner is my forever unfinished mosaic table.



Corner by the closet


Computer, ikea desk, free newspaper kitty Smiley


Inspiration and mementos


Bookshelf, still have boxes and boxes of books to unpack. The wife and I assembled this monster without a single curse word Smiley



Not really a photo of anything but I love these stars, bought them at an adorable Amish bake shop






Still to do:
Window covers, clean and straighten, get a rug, hang a few shelves. These pics aren't the greatest and I still have a lot to do (in between the rest of the home projects, work and grad school starting next month lol) I didn't want to leave this thread hangin. Hopefully it inspires some one as some of the amazing craft rooms posted here have inspired me.


2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Scrabooking/ Paper/ Photo Adhesive?? on: July 22, 2010 04:35:01 PM
Does anyone have a great, acid free, sticks well adhesive for paper crafts? Mostly cardstock, photos cardmaking/ scrapbooking uses. I have been using good ole Elmer's but there must be something better?  Huh

Once I had these "glue/tape square" sticker things that came on a sheet on a roll. (How convienent I thought)  Cheesy Cards arrived in pieces due to said glue squares falling off.  Cry It was like sending loved ones pieces of a card and said "Here, YOU put it together!".  Undecided Someone had given these glue squares to me, in hindsight I believe they gave them to me because they were terrible. Angry Now I am afraid of alternative adhesives and I want to embrace all adhesives equally.

What do you use??

4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Completed Projects / Baby Scrapbook on: June 05, 2009 09:03:00 PM
I made this for our friend who is having twins any time now. I've been working on it all night so my photography is somewhat lacking. The color looks dull but you get the idea.

All she has to do is insert her photos on the pages-- I figured it would be easy enough for a mom whose about to be busy with two. I'll finish it up tomorrow.

















5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Discussion and Questions / Scrapbooking magazines? on: November 18, 2008 04:14:59 PM
I was wondering what everyones opinion was on the best/ your favorite scrapbooking magazine.
 I would like a subscription to a magazine but am not sure which one to get.

Preferably one with the best projects/ ideas and minimal ads.

Anyone?

Thanks
6  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Paper Tree Art thingy: Ton O' Images on: December 27, 2006 04:57:35 PM
So I have no idea where to put this, interior decorating, paper crafts, misc. completed projects....? I figured this was as good as any.

This is a gift for my girlfriend. I am very nervous about giving it to her, we haven't been dating long and she's my first girlfriend. She is truly amazing and I wanted to make her something as incredible as she makes me feel... hence my nervousness about her liking it.

It really looks better in real life because you can appreciate the 3D levels and variety in the paper. This is my first time trying this technique on this big a scale. I need to get updated pics but I ended up filling out a few bare spots and finishing the edges of the canvas with blue satin ribbon.

Full frontal glory: (I almost hate to post this shot because it doesn't do it justice at all)

A heart in the tree that I made from the paper around the roses she gave me on our second date:


Comments/ Criticism/ Suggestions appreciated!!
7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Help!!! Xmas present for GF--(Finshed!! thanks for the ideas!!) on: December 13, 2006 09:16:31 PM
So this is a Christmas present for my girlfriend. I know it needs something uptop,... but what?  Huh Huh Huh
I was thinking swirly clouds but would that leave too much white?
If I paint the background do i have to get into all the white spots?
Should I college images onto the top ie, a moon or fairy or something?
more water at the bottom??
As you can see I am very confused. Help!!
Front shot (I promise, not best representation of what it looks like in real life)


Details so you get an idea of the color:






EDIT: I've (pretty much) finished it and it's posted here:
