Easy Photo Ribbon Bookmarks Tutorial

I've got a quick and oh so easy photo ribbon bookmark tutorial for you on the May Arts Blog.    

I used this Scotch laminator that comes with everything you need to make dozens of these as fun gifts from teacher to student or a cute way to encourage little readers to open that book and get reading.  Great stocking stuffers too! (never too early to plan ahead for those fun photos).

Complete list and many more bookmarks on the May Arts blog.  Don't forget to leave a comment there.  :-)

I've been doing some spring cleaning while DH is away.  It feels good to clear out the dust and papers that accumulate.  While I was recovering from my bout of the stomach flu, I decided to do a little purging in the craft studio. 

My neighbors are moving 4 states away.  That makes my heart sad.   I will miss the kids and our game and craft times, their happy dogs..and cats..and turtle..and mouse.  At any rate, I boxed up all kinds of goodies and sneaked them over to mom so she can pack them as a surprise for the kids to help ease the transition.  That left me with this:

A little shocking to see it so neat but oh how happy it makes me!  I kept only the things I know I will use.  I've ordered 6 more of those wonderful little Sparco Cubes and one more X-Cube.  Hurry, they're on sale!

Look what I found for the floor...I LOVE it!  I fell in love with it right away and it's so impractical because it's wool but it was a great price and it makes me happy so I put my normally practical brain on hold and went for it.

See those nice organized shelves below my work surface.  For those of you who may not know, I have IKEA self standing kitchen cabinets for my work room...I'm a stand up crafter although I do use a bar stool to sit on when I color.  I wanted to be able to take them with me if we move in the future. 

Now, it's time for you to hop on over to Julia's Stamping Ground.  You'll find lots of crafty, sewing, and other assorted workdesks to visit all over the world. 

And don't forget to scroll down for the giveaway scheduled for Friday.  ;-)

Happy WOYWW195!
