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 here...you 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!
Kim

Elvis Presley was known for being so generous that he had problems not buying strangers and friends expensive gifts. Elvis’s maid and cook Mary Jenkins was gifted six cars including three Cadillacs from him before his death. Elvis also gave his dentist and jeweler cars. Elvis used to say “What good is money if you aren’t using it to make someone happy”.

The the first deodorant for men was launched in 1935 (decades after the introduction of deodorants for women) because, at the beginning of the 20th century, body odor was not considered a problem for men; it was a part of being masculine.
