2018 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

I have been playing along with Coffee Lovers Blog Hop a few times and really don't want to miss this, today is the last day to join in the fun so I tried to upload the photo I took from my photo to my computer, but I tried, and tried for hours, it just doesn't work, so I gave up and go cook dinner, after dinner, I see that I still have a few hours to try, so I did it again, this time, I realized that my Iphone needs to update to the newer version.... Oh that must be the problem why the photos won't load, and sure enough, whew.... two more hours to go, I am hurrying....

I am using a stamp set fro Fun Stamper Journey called "Coffee Helps"

please excuse my messy craft table, I was in a rush to get this link up.....

City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 440 and New Craft Room Reveal

This week at City Crafter Challenge Blog, the theme is P-P-Pick up a Penguin, here's my very first penguin stamp from Avery Elle....

the background paper is from Jillibean Soup....

the snowflakes on the background are from Papertrey Ink, a mini stamp set called "places, please"

the frame die is from Papertrey Ink as well, and I used a die from My Creative Time to create the snow hill and them filled it with Martha Stewart Tinsel Glitters.

I hope you could join in the fun this week at City Crafter Challenge Blog

Before I go, a peek into my craft room in our new house.

we only have two extra bedrooms in the main house of this new house, they are the Jack and Jill room, which means, both room has their own vanity sink attached but they are connected with one bathroom/toilet, we make the room looking out the backyard the guest room and I used this one facing the south side of the yard as my craft room/office space, I leave lots of space for a futon just in case we need an extra guest room, so I limit my storage unit to only one side of the wall....

I got myself only one Ikea Alex unit and reuse all the storage units I have at the old house....

keeping the old wall unit near the door to the bathroom, I do have an extra storage near the vanity sink.....

this room also has a walk in closet, so I get more storage for my crafting stuff, except I really haven't find time to organize them yet....

since this is not just craft room but also my office where I prepare my class work as well as browsing the Internet, so I spend a lot of time in here and really need a TV...... an old one we used to have in our old guest room but sitting on a new Ikea storage unit.

Right now, I still have tons of boxes sitting in the Casita as well as the walk in closet of the other bedroom, therefore, I am trying to sell as much as I could, check them out HERE!!!!

25 Days of Christmas Tags (day 1)

I was inspired to make some Christmas tags followed the lead of Tracey Mcneely at In My Creative Opinion....

My tag was inspired by Jo Nevill's beautiful tag seen HERE at original post on DAY 1 as well as Jo's Blog.

Jo was using red ink on kraft, and I really love that idea and decided to give it a try too...

The background images are stamps from Papertrey Ink Quilted Winter and I am sorry I don't know where is the die from, let me know if you have answer for that.

Death Valley and City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 436 ~ Zig-a-Zag-ah

I went to Death Valley National Park over the weekend.....

it is the biggest National Park on the lower 48 states of America...

just look at the rock formation, no wonder Star Wars movies staged here...

although its already end of October, but it was still hot after 10 AM

Badwater basin is pretty cool though, it is 282 below sea level, one of the lowest spot in the world

one of my favorite hike is Natural Bridge Canyon, not only it was partly shaded, the view was amazing....

here's another one of my favorite - Artists Palette, pretty cool huh?

now back to this week's card for City Crafter Challenge Blog

The theme is Zig-a-Zag-ah.....

I am not the most patient, and really having problem lining up these cross-stitches pumpkin...

they are too difficult for me, LOL! I started with the stitched peonies and finally gave up, the stitched peonies stamp set is now on sale on my Crafty Stuff for Sale Page, if you are interested to pick it up, hop over there now, I tried on the petals and it doesn't work for me so the rest of the stamp in that set was totally new.
