New Studio: Sneak Peek & GIVEAWAY!

Sorting, organizing and cleaning....then REPEAT!

The construction is done and I'd say 85% of the relocation and sorting, It's SO BEAUTIFUL, and spacious! See the pics for a sneak peek, you'll notice that I still have my work cut out for me for a few more days.

OK, so I've been thinking while I'm sorting..........

I want to get to know YOU.
Post a comment here and tell me about you, what type of art / crafts you enjoy. Maybe you'd like to dabble in something new? Have a favorite manufacturer? Only design digi? Please share this with all your friends because So far, I have 3 boxes to give away and I'm certain there will be more!!

If I read your post and I feel that I have the perfect prize package for you, YOU WIN! Since I am mixed media, paper crafts, stamping, fabric, jewelry etc. I will bundle "like" supplies and select winners when I see a "good fit" for the items I have to give.

There will be as many winners as possible, now until St. Patty's Day!

Thanks bunches for stopping by...........
ART on!


  1. Becky you are such a sweet heart, love the look of your studio, so exciting!! I started out w/scrapbooks but now I am mainly doing cards and only recently working with stamps and inks!!
    Will post your giveaway on my blog!! Thanks

  2. WOW....check out that studio. I am soooo jealous!! My hubby is in the military and we move a lot leaving me very little space for storage and crafting. Maybe when he retires I will get a space like yours!! Having two smaller children, I tend to do scrapbooking and cards more than anything. There are always paper scraps and ink stains all over my desk but I love every mess I make!! I use MTC software with a Cricut E. I make my own svg files and some digi stamp and share them on my blog. Not sure if you use any software such as this but you should come by my blog and check out my freebies!! Thanks for having this awesome giveaway!! :)Patti

  4. I enjoy all kinds of crafts, I make cards and altered projects. I paint ceramics. I dabble in a little of everything. I love using my cricut, which I got about 3 weeks ago. I love to use stamps, digi and rubber! like I said I do everything. I really don't have a favorite co, I think they all have something unique to offer.

  5. Love your studio! Super nice! I love all types of crafting. From some very simple sewing projects to papercrafting. Right now, I am mainly working on scrapbooking and have started making cards. I love stamps, but have never done the digi stamping. Not sure how to even start with those?? My favorite product line at the moment is Imaginisce and I am loving DCWV cardstock as well. I have a cricut, and just recently upgraded to an Expression, and am trying to build my library of cartridges. I just recently got a cuttlebug and am loving the embossing folders. I think it adds a lot to my cards. Thanks again for the chance to win! Sorry about the babbling! :)

  6. I can't wait to see the studio completed. Looks good already. I started scrapbooking 4 years ago and just did LOs. In the past 1 1/2 years, I started making cards and love it. I love using my cricut and have recently started stamping and using digis. I also love adding ribbon and bling to everything which my hubby makes fun of. I am getting a Big Shot for my birthday and am quite excited. May seems like so long away but I promised my hubby I would wait. Thanks for the chance to win and I am now a follower. Look forward to following your blog!

  7. Oh, I am so jealous! I have an 8x8 room that is also a storeroom. To work on my sewing I have to move my laptop and Cricut.

    I am heavily into scrapbooking as one of my projects is a photo album/scrapbook for my older daughter. Younger daughter's is done. Then I have 32 years of photos to go through to sort/toss/save and then eventually album/scrapbook them.

    In my spare time, I play with my Cricut. I have one cartridge, but use Sure Cuts A Lot to really do what I want. Right now I seem to be collecting a lot of paper that is so pretty I don't want to use it. I'm learning to make cards, which is kind of a hit and miss situation.

  8. Wow your studio is coming along so well! Just beautiful and so much space! I've only been making cards but just recently started scrapbooking. I began with stamping but since receiving my cricut create I've only been stamping sentiments. I have never used rubber stamps mostly clear ones. I will be starting distressing soon but before I do I'll probably watch lots tutorials first haha. I mostly use embellishments like ribbon, pearls and bling at the moment. As I get more experience I'll start using flowers and buttons and so on. I'll be posting about this as soon as I can, thank you for the chance!

  9. Wow I am so jealous of your space!!! How inspiring! I do a lot of different things. I would say that working on scrapbooking pages (mostly Disney related) and cards are what I do the most of. I've recently started sewing on my cards and am loving it! I'm trying to branch out more with sewing ribbon and fabric on my cards as well...and sometimes buttons. I also do a lot of school related projects both for my boys and for the entire school since I am the PTO President and very involved.

    I love Bo Bunny, Imaginisce, Little Yellow Bicycle...oh who am I kidding...when it comes to paper and embellishments...I LOVE EVERYONE! lol

    Thank you so much for the chance to give a good home to some of your stuff! I would love to have you stop by my blog and take a look!


  10. Wow! Having your own studio. What a dream! I have only been making cards for 5 months. I have worked with stamps and some embellishments and a little in Cricut Cartridges. I have not ventured into digital scrapbooking (or any scrapbooking) yet. I need to. I need inspiration, ideas, and supplies. Hope I win!

  11. I like everything..I love paper crafting, but I'm starting to get into jewelry making and beads,I love stamps and I want to try digi stamps, I'm getting into fabric crafts too I just love is too short to be stuck in a rut so explore different medias even in crafting things besides my comfort zone.. I love embellishments, stickers, cricut cartridges,ribbon I love ribbon, bling,card making, inks, Thanks so much for the chance to win! haven't tried copics yet..I'm hoping I win..

  12. I am redoing my craft room too!!! Alot of work. I enjoy doing alot of different crafts but with time so limited about all I get done are cards and small gifts. Good luck with organizing your new room!!! pjseagers at hotmail dot com

  13. It looks like you're going to have an amazing space when you're done..congratulations. I am converting a walk in closet into my crafty space, so I love seeing people's craft space(large or small) so I can get storage ideas.
    I haven't ever tried digital scrapping, but do enjoy scrapping, card making,making banners, and sewing. Sometimes it's hard to find the time because I have irregular work hours (I'm a police dispatcher)and my shift changes every 4 months, so a lot of the time I'm just focusing on adjusting,lol. When I am home, and conscious, I think I'd like to get better at embellishing and some of the little extra touches that make projects special, like using more fabric, stitches, and trims.
    Anyways...can't wait til your craft studio reveal...looks like it's gonna be great.

  14. WOW! Your studio is going to be so nice! I can't wait to see the finished pictures! hmmm a little about me...I'm 54 almost 55..yikes! Married with 6 for legged golden furkids. I was a bakery manager for 30 some odd years and now I am pretty much retired! I work about 4 hours per week as a cake What do I do with all my free time. Now days I'm a scrapper! I LOVE bling and bright! I am also a cake decorator....13 great nieces and nephews keep me busy there! For years I did ceramics. Don't you just love how you can take aspects of my hobby and use it in another!!

  15. Amazing studio! I was an Army wife throught my girls school years. So decorated & crafting was always done frugally & without ruining walls hahha.
    I've been crafting for years & primiarly with making cards.OOh I love paper,dabble in sewing,oil painting,Primsacoloring,Decoupage. I'm an empty nester now & have my own craftroom...not as beautiful as yours...but my craftroom is where I love to be.I'd love to take a potery class,but that is a hugely expensive hobby! Can't wait to see what your Studio will look like.Pace can be overwhelming,organzeing..with how you'll function in the room. Good Luck

  16. Looking forward to seeing the finished studio, love the wood floors!
    I have been crafting since I was about 6. I really enjoyed crafting with my sons when they were little. Now it's just me. I enjoy knitting, crocheting, jewelry making, sewing, stained glass, stamping, using my cricut, cuttlebug, digis.... I just love all kinds of crafts. I started making cards about 10 years ago but was too busy to do it for the last 5 years. I just got back into it in Nov. 2010, when I saw the cricut on HSN for the first time. I decided it was time to set up my new craft room and unpack everything since we moved to our new house 3 years ago. Now i am also working on scrapbooking and enjoying learning so many new things from all the wonderful blogs out here.

    Thank you so much for the chance to win so many wonderful goodies:)

  17. Your space is looking good! I'm sure it'll be great when it is finished! I love scrapbooking! I got a cricut expressions about 1 1/2 yrs. ago and I absolutely love it! It has taken my scrapbooking to another level! This year I began making cards using the cricut and I am having a blast. I've not started stamping yet, though it looks like something I'd like to look into ;-)
    I just discovered the wonderful world of blogging, so I'm having fun discovering sites like yours. I hope to one day have my own craft room! Thanks for the chance at winning some goodies!

  18. Can't wait to see photos of the finished project. I usually do LOs & cards but like making home projects. I love using stamps, and flowers; bling & ribbon are usually on my cards and I love, love, love my Cricut & Cuttlebug. I can't wait until May because my hubby is getting me a Big Shot and I feel like a little kid at Christmas waiting for it :0) My hubby also makes fun of me because I love paper and he says I have an addiction. Okay he is right, I do have a little bit of an addiction; but who doesn't! :0)Thank you for the chance to win!

  19. Hi Becky! What a lovely space you're moving into ... I especially love the hardwood floors, so easy to sweep up those bitty pieces of paper.

    I'm glad you asked about me in your giveaway. All my life, I've been into one sort of crafting or another, to a point that my Dad used to say I'd make a great kindergarten teacher. I took that as an insult back then, but nowadays, sure wish I was one! I'd have a blast, as I did when I volunteered as a Brownie leader. I love the kids' pure innocence and excitement in making crafts and discovering talent and joy that lurks within each of us.

    Do you remember the book, "Everything I Need To Know I Learned in Kindergarten?" It's so true! Back then, I aced scissors, paper and glue, as well as how to make friendships. Granted, it was back in the dark ages before computers, so I sure didn't learn about blogging, but that is now my favorite joy. I love to try new crafts, experiment with unusual media, mix/match, and come up with tips and projects to share with my online family.

    I truly enjoy papercrafting the most, I think. Pretty papers, creative thought, etc. I am in love with my Cricut Expression (and have 2 of them, plus a Cricut Cake). I've done jewelry making, watercoloring, and years ago, macrame! Oh gosh, now I am aging myself!!!

    Thank you for any chance to win your cast-offs!! Rest assured, what I don't want or need will be upcycled to the nearest kindergarten class or senior center. I'm thinking about making cards for the local woman's shelter too; how nice would that be?!

    Warmest regards,

    Wow, first I want to thank you for your generosity! I started as a stamper,then added scrapbooking. Lately I have been attempting the mixed media art and really love repurposing castoff items! My sister and I share all of our supplies and would love the chance to maybe get to use some things we haven't got to try yet! Thank you again for the chance to win some of your treasures!

  21. By the way the new studio looks amazing!

  22. Right now im learning to make cards and trying to teach myself parchment craft.Its expensive to start a new craft so i make do a lot.
    Hubby just treated me to a cricut expression for xmas and im learning to use that.Im waiting for Michaels to have sales on paper and ink pads\refills and id like to try working with wire shaping on cards too.So many ideas so litle time lol.

  23. Becky, i love your new craft room. I started out as a sewer making clothing, then moved toward home dec and quilting. I made jewelery when i was in high school and want to get back into this. I am also a needleartist and make XS pictures. About 10 years ago the card making bug bit me and it all started with a Stampin' Up party. Then i bought a Cricut Expression and later the Imagine. I had a Craft room built also last year which is always in a state of organization but it is nice to be able to leave a project out until it is finished.
