Staying organized can sometimes be a challenge. For a couple of years, I stamped and created my masterpieces on a folding table and at times it could be rather flimsy. I've searched and searched for an old library table and they were either too big, too small or too expensive. Well, I hit the jackpot a couple of weeks ago! At work we are updating our furniture and work spaces and an old table was ready to get pitched. The wooden top was damaged. I can imagine students who stayed up late to study probably got bored and started doodling and carving their names and perhaps answers to test questions on it! I asked if I could rescue it. My hubby picked it up and started refinishing the top. After filling in the scratches and a couple of sandings, he decided that it should be painted. I cleaned up the legs and drawers and then applied a light coat of wax. It's half painted and half natural and it works perfectly in the space!
I can't wait to use it tonight to make some cards and as always, there is plenty of scrapbooking to do!
Love to all!

My niece's wedding is just around the corner! She is having daisies as her flowers so I wanted a daisy theme for her bridal shower. I purchased some daisy soaps and seeds and knew that Stampin' Up had the perfect stamp for embellishing a cute topper for the gift bags. I also bought some hand soap and wrapped each in tissue paper and used my glue gun to apply the daisies. Now on to the candy holders! I have a Daisy Die and cut those with the Big Shot and bought some mini muffin wraps and applied them to the daisies! Won't those look so cute with some yellow and white M&M's? Family helped with the watering can candy holders....Thanks Kim and Joanne! I can't wait to fill those with some candy too!
Thanks for looking and happy stamping!

Gals, remember years ago when Stampin' Up sold some weird cut Wild Wasabi cards for only $3.75 a pack? They were scored incorrectly and it works to your advantage with this card! I hope if you ordered those you didn't get rid of them because they come back to life with this cute stamp set featured in the Summer Mini called Hello Blossoms! So cute too and all you need is some different color Stampin' Write Markers, a scallop border punch and some Garden Green and you are good to go! Embellish with some ribbon and it's done! Great for Mother's Day too!
