New Home and Holiday Card

We have been busy, getting ready to move and selling our current house, besides the Master bedroom, an office space, a casida with bedroom, small kitchen space and living area, we also have two other bedrooms, we have been changing our mind on whether I want to have a REAL craft room using one of the bedroom, or just share the office space with hubby, which means crafting storage space is limited, I like the idea of having both bedrooms as guest room, but then on the other hand, we only will have a house full once a year when all three kids are home, kind of a waste to leave the two bedroom empty as guest room and not a room cater to our daily life, so we are switching back and forth many times, trying to talk ourself into one idea from the other, what do you think I should do? Have a full size craft room and one guest bedroom or cut down my craft supplies by a lot and share the office space with DH?

Anyway, regardless my decision, there are things that I think I will never use again, I list them HERE before I post at ebay, let me know if you are interested in any, I will continue to clean up and add more photos, for now, check them out HERE!!!

So here's my current craft room....

it is a loft on the upstairs of our current house, it is my very first craft room because I used to craft on our kitchen counter while we live in NYC.

I do have a lot of stuff in the closet, they also spread to Clare's room after she moved out, and there also took up a lot of space in our garage, so I do have a lot of things that I need to get rid of.

Alright, share some ideas if you would!

Next is a holiday card for a Jewish friend.....

when I send holiday cards in December, I often struggle with what kind of card I should send to my Jewish friend, well.... I think I have a solution now.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget, check out THIS PAGE regularly as I will be posting some of my stuff over there.

Have a fun-filled weekend!

City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 420 ~ In the Pink!

We didn't really plan at all, we kind of like going out on weekends just to see show houses, and then BOOM! Something just happened, we bought a NEW HOUSE!!!! Move in date is late August, so between selling our current house and moving, there is a lot ahead of me right now. Whew!!!!
 Unlike the current house, my craft room is upstairs, the new house is a one story, and my craft room is going to be like an office space with bigger door facing the kitchen and living area, that means, I MUST keep the room tidy all the time, and there is no way that my things can go into the IKEA storing units I intend to have, so my plan is in the next few weeks, I must part with some of the craft supplies that I no longer use, maybe do sell them on ebay, wish me luck! : )

The theme is In the Pink.

Floral and sentiment are a stamp set called Scripture Medley 5 from Verve Store, I am sad that they are close for good though.

City Crafter Challenge Blog 418 ~ Seaside

Lucille has an inspiration photo for us, and she named the theme Seaside.

That immediately reminded me of my trip to Burano, although it is a lagoon and not seaside, but the inspiration photo for this challenge just make me feel so relaxed and in a vacation mood.

Here's a picture I took when I was in Burano. My camera had a good work out that day, and I picked one of the picture for my layout today....

patterned paper and some of the embellishment die cuts are from one of the kit I had long time ago, I do stamped the flower images from a HERO ARTS stamp set, and the rest of the traveling label are from Kelly Purkey Stamp set....

I used some of my newest favorite Nuvo Jewel Drops on this layout too, can you spot them?
