Coffee First With Fall Cards

Let's start the week with a little coffee - who can get behind that?  I've actually weaned myself to just one cup a day because, well, I like a little coffee with my creamer, let's be honest. 
I just can't do that black coffee thing...how old does one have to be to mature into that? *Ü*  
Is there a secret someone can share?


I love this new  Changing Seasons Embossing Folder behind these cups, it is the perfect background - fall but not too busy.


Cardstock:  Whip Cream, Pumpkin Bread, Hazelnut Blend, Corrugated Paper, Fall-O-Ween Prints
Stamp Set:  Hello Fall Bundle
Accessories:  Coffee First Dies, Hello Fall Dies, Changing Seasons Embossing Folder, Platinum Machine, Natural Twine, Dark Roast Silk

My Stamp Space Redo

I stamp in the tiny alcove of our bonus room.  
It is the perfect little space for me but I've been struggling with the lighting for oh...about 11 years, *Ü* so I decided it was time to change it up and see if I can fix my problem.

Here are the before pictures.  I love the color but it constantly had this dark red cast on everything.



And now, it is slightly off white, brighter than heck and I'm getting used to a whole new lighting issue - too much. *Ü*  
I like it much better though!




The process...why does anyone paint?  I seriously dislike everything about it!!  But it's done!!




If we ever move, I will have to sell the house with the cupboard and chest because I wasn't about to take it off the wall to paint the back or top of the cupboard.  I will worry about that if the time comes...


Where does all this stuff go?  More like, where did it all come from?
We did a whole house of new carpet this summer and I really should have just done this all at the same time instead of putting it all back in the room and now emptying it all again.  But I always do my best thinking after the fact, story of my life. 


All put back together and up and running in three days - not too bad!

DIY Cottage Bloom Card Carrier Gift Packaging

It makes me so happy when I can sit down and create awesome gift packaging without going to the store.  I have my own store in my tiny stamp area!
I had a big promotion on my team this month, Carrie Rhoades promoted to Sr. Manager, so this gift packaging had to be 'extra'! 


I used the Card Carrier Die to create a gift bag with Corrugated Stock.  I love the texture and krafty color of this paper!  I then decorated it with Good Life prints and a beautiful Gerbera Daisy made with the Cottage Bloom Die Set. 

The coordinating card is made with flowers from the Cottage Bouquet Bundle and a beautiful background of Rose Gold PanPastel.
