Blogger NEWBIE!

 Well folks, here I am in blog world. Always said I'd never have a blog even though I enjoy so many of my friend's crafty blogs. BUT, thanks to my friend Curt (you must visit his blog, you won't be disappointed). I'm hoping I can figure out how to add his fantastic blog in my side bar. Not only does Curt create amazing cards, you can also enjoy his awesome photography skills and his TWO giant schnauzers (hi Shotsy, hi Gunther).

Well I'll try not to get all long-winded on this first post, but please be patient while I figure out the ins and outs of this blogging stuff. After all the purpose of the blog is to share my creations and be open to any criticism you have to offer. We can all learn from each other.

Today I will just post some snippets from around my craft area so you can see why the name "The Raspberry Room" I love my little craft cave! Thanks to the hubster for being such an integral part of creating it.
Until Next Time . . . .

My Punches (a small sampling of them anyway)
More Punches (mostly M Stewart) and many many SU sets

My GIANT scissors and the "few" stamps I have left on wood

MORE SU and lots of glitter

These seemed like a good idea when I made them, but they just don't hold enough supply for me

Grand Calibur and this & that
My growing collection of Copics

Proud of my homemade curtains. If you can't find what you want, make it!

Can you say ribbon junkie?

  12. Curt sent me over and boy am I glad I "listened" to him! I love these pictures of your craft room -- what is the shelving you have the SU clear stamps on? I love it! Did you paint everything yourself? I love the stamped image over this stamp container. And where in the room is your ribbon storage? Is it on a door? As you can see, I'm always looking for great ideas!
