Sunday Recap from CHA!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello PS friends:)

I cannot believe this.... it's so surreal... it's been a dream of mine.... I'm at CHA with Kim!!!!!!!!!!!!

So today's post will be short and sweet:)

I hope you join in the fun with our January "cozy" and photo inspiration challenge! More details can be found HERE.

I didn't create anything for this week due to traveling... but here are a couple of ideas for making a cozy card:

  • use vellum- I think vellum over any loud pattern or over white would be very cozy (and actually vellum over white would be like this photo inspiration! LOVE it!)
  • anything about coffee makes me think of warm and cozy
  • two animals hugging... that's cozy
  • scarves, hats, gloves, etc--- that's always cozy! 
  • plaid paper or washi tape- cozy!
You get the idea;) Click HERE to play along or link up below! 

Come back for more inspiration this week- Kim might be sharing some photos from CHA! Hopefully I will be able to craft with her in her studio:) Have a fabulous day- be blessed;) ❤️ Sav

Some free range turkey farms use alpacas to guard their flocks from foxes, since alpacas are extremely territorial and will accept the turkeys as part of their herd, defending them by chasing off predators.

When Stephen Hawking’s first wife, Jane, saw the movie script for The Theory of Everything, she deleted all the F-words, saying “Scientists in the 1960s and 70s didn’t use the F-word and I’m pretty sure they don’t now either.”

hugs!  Kim

I have something fun to share today :)

I am not one to make New Year's resolutions, but I have decided to go into my craft space more.  I honestly miss it!  So, I thought I'd share a photo of what my work area looks like...

I am curious about what your GO-TO tools are?  I haven't purchased anything new in a while, so I am sure there are tools and must-haves that I don't l know about.  (trimmer, scissors, adhesive etc) Care to share?  If you comment will be entered to win a prize...giveaway details are below...

I absolutely love my Desk Maid organizer.  I keep all four units by my side when I sit down to paper craft.  Although I love the clean white design, I added some patterned papers to the front of some of the units to add a bit of color.

I use the Tool Tower to hold my favorite marker colors.  I use the Stadium Arranger for my essentials - glue, inks, acrylic blocks.  I keep various paint brushes, scissors, pencils, tools and colored pencils.  The Pen & Ink Palace is perfect for my die tools since I keep it next to my die cutting machine.  I also store the dies that I am currently using, along with some watercolor blocks, washi tape and accessories.  I love the drawers and it's so easy to change out the contents when I like.

Thank you Totally-Tiffany for creating such an amazing system!

so, to those giveaway details...
leave a comment before midnight on Jan. 15th and you could be chosen to win this...

Winner will be announced here, on Monday, Jan 16th.
I am really looking forward to hearing about what you keep by your side when you paper craft.
Love ya!
