I’m celebrating being in my new craft room. Every day I get a little more organized and each evening, hubby has been working hard on finishing up trim and closets and shelves. And I’m so excited that I’m having fun playing again! Now and then life just seems to get so crazy and it can just steal the joy out of creating. While this new craft room is certainly helping get me excited about creating again, one other thing I like to do to get myself back at it is to give myself the freedom to just use things up and play with my scraps and anything that catches my fancy. Just have some simple fun and rediscover the joy of creating just for the sake of it.

While I’ve been cleaning and sorting, I filled up a big shoebox with embellishments and ribbon and scraps that I really wanted to use up and not throw out. My challenge to myself is to use something from the box on almost every project over the next few weeks. To stop hoarding and start using. Here’s a little bit of what I’ve been up to…

My first card in my new craft room.
