Altered Bingo Cards

Two altered bingo cards I just created. I haven't crafted in awhile so I thought I would get my feet wet by doing some altered art. Enjoy!

My View

Been lazy lately and haven't posted anything. But I thought I'd share with you a picture of my view from my office in downtown Vancouver. Our office is on the 19th floor. Don't you just love the cherry blossoms. I wanted to take some photos from under the trees but haven't made it across the street yet! Enjoy!!!

Happiness has a different meaning for everyone. The happiest day of my life so far is my wedding day. Everyone commented that I looked sooo happy and I was. I married my best friend and soul mate. Mind you it only took 10 years!!! Every time I look at our wedding pictures, I smile and wish that I could relive that day again.

I came upon our photos as children and decided to make a collage with one of my favourite wedding photos (my sister took this shot on our way home after the reception and I love it!). My baby picture on the left was taken by my daddy when I was about 7 months old. He was taking photography classes and he took many photos of me and my mom. My hubby's photo was taken on a beach somewhere in eastern Canada when he was a year old. He loves the beach and specially the water. I guess you can call him a water baby!
What does happiness mean to you? Do you remember your happiest day?

I started tackling my craft room a couple of months back and I still have alot to do. My craft room is a little off to one side of the garage. It is not heated but it has four walls and a window. And thank goodness it has lights. I have a small portable heater that I can use in the cooler months but I think it will fine during the warmer months. My craft room is really tiny so I had to figure out where to put all my stuff! But first off, I had to paint the room. This room was used by the previous owners' children as some sort of hideout.

Don't you just love the decor. I wanted a more muted wall colour and I wanted a ceiling. Is it really too much to ask? Well, my husband thought so at first but he (I mean we) put up the a new ceiling and I painted the walls. I also put in new flooring. Nothing fancy just some stick on tiles. It turned out great!

Nice and neat...but not for long!!!

Hubby bought me three cabinets. I thought these could house the majority of my things but I was wrong. I had to put in two old book shelves, an old desk and a vintage cabinet. Still not enough room for all my stuff!!! Take a look...

Still a long ways to go. I plan on putting up curtains in front of the two book shelves to hide all the supplies. I also want to buy a larger desk with more drawers. I told my hubby that I will have to take up more of the garage. I need more storage space.

Gee...I just looked at the above noted paragraph and I saw a lot of "I"s, I plan, I want, I told and I need. What do you know...I guess it's all about me when it comes to the craft room!!!
