I'm in the Zone..

the crafting zone, that is!! I have been a busy bee finishing some long overdue projects and sprucing up some items I've had around the house. I did this cute little recipe box / organizer last night and I will be listing it on Etsy soon..



I was also very annoyed at all of the magnet clutter on my refrigerator, so I dug out this old wall basket, painted it a light blue and spruced it up to corral all of my magnets on the fridge. I think it looks kinda cute, and much cleaner!!











I had leftover scrap paper from my recipe box and decided to cover an old red Matted pic that was in my closet. I still may paint the frame, but it already looks better. Sorry about the pics, I left the glass in the pic because I was too lazy to take it out to take the pics!!




I just love this paper... it's glittered.. I know you can't see it in the pics. Yesterday I made a trip to town and hit Joann's and Michaels and I struck out at JoAnn's, but hit the jackpot at Michaels!! I was looking for plastic Easter eggs for a craft project and JoAnn's was completely out!! So the kids and I hit the burger King drive through and drove on to Michaels. They had some GREAT deals and their dollar section was loaded with things I needed. I got these cute magnets in the dollar section and later I will post some pics of the other clearance items I got.. UNBELIEVABLE!!! I am going to head back there this weekend to get some gifts for upcoming birthday gifts.

Now I am anxiously awaiting my UPS man for a large Close to My Heart scrapbooking delivery!! Ya HOOOOO!!!! Remember.. tonight I will be drawing a name in the travel mug giveaway, so leave a comment to be entered to win a cute travel mug!!
