CardMaker Blog Happy Monday everyone! Kristie here to show you my crafty space. This is where I store all of my craft supplies. This is the view from my doorway. Here’s a close-up photo of part of the shelf unit that is in the corner of the room. Near the window on the left side of the room I have my Expedit bookcase/desk. My cleaned-up desk is shown above. Above my desk on top of my Expedit, I store ink pads. Adjacent to my desk I have my work table where I can stand to work. On the back side of my working table, I keep my 12×12 individual sheets of patterned paper. And lastly, next to my door I have my cardstock paper racks. I hope you’ve enjoyed the tour. -Kristie Copycat Crafts | DIY Designer Knock-Off Things to Make

Rain Gutter Book Shelves Tutorial I have seen these rain gutter bookshelves several places online and have always thought they would be wonderful to have in our book loving home.

The theory behind these rain gutter book shelves is that they encourage children to read more because they can see the fronts of the books and are intrigued, rather than just seeing the edge of the book and not being able to tell what it is about. Our children have always read a lot, but the little ones are reading even more since we installed these shelves. The first day that the shelves were in, my two year old, upon waking from his nap, grabbed a book and came running out asking me to read it to him. been on the book shelves in their bedroom for the past year or so! Rain gutter shelves won’t hold a ton of books, not nearly as many as the same space used for traditional shelving. Items needed: 1. 2.

Be Blogged : Wall Art I am going to start a new feature on the website- Wall Art Wednesdays. I have noticed during proofing sessions that people are often overwhelmed by the number of beautiful images of their family and don't quite know what to do with them all. I then see them struggle to narrow it down to just one "large" print and then leave several images they love behind just because they weren't sure what to do with them. The other tactic I regularly see is they order several 5x7's and 4x6's but still don't get everything they want. I love it when my customers are able to purchase the session disc or one of the collections that include it because I really want you to have every single image! I don't want you to leave anything behind! We have been told over and over by Kodak that a big print is 8x10 and a really big print is 16x20 but when you look at a single 16x20 on a wall it often looks kind of lonely! Lessons Empty walls are all too common in our homes. Whatever the reason, enough is enough!
