The new "Craft Palace"

It has been a very long time since I have posted on my blog....always busy...
I have been busy building my Stampin Up family...I now have four wonderful downline.

Below are some pictures from my craftroom remodel project...there is still more to do, but I am now in there holding classes and club meetings every month! Have a peak and see what I did!

What you are going to see is the old "Craft Cave" But I did know where everything was!
Then our downstairs "kids playroom" They didnt use it much anymore!
My kids involved in helping to contruct the new space!
I found these wonderful solid maple cabinets on Craigslist...
We went and picked them up with our cattle trailer! Yes a cattle trailer!
Then there are pics of a somewhat completed room...between fall work on the farm and hunting season my lighting and suspended ceiling are put on hold until December!
My Original cramped "Craft Cave" !

Last Day At The 2012 Convention

Hi Everyone;
This has been a long convention!  Some of the days have been longer due to extra classes taken!
My Digital Studio has been revamped.  Its release date is fast approaching on August 1st! WOW is all I can say on all the added software to this program.  I had a 2 1/2 hour class last night.  A very seasoned veteran of MDS sat next to me.  Her reactions to all the new features told me its going to be a really great tool to use.  For me, I need to find time to work with it so I can be comfortable teaching it! I myself would really love to make a hard covered book! That is one goal I am leaving convention with this year!
All four of my wonderful Down line are expressing a great interest in attending next year....Next year should be awesome...first if my Down line attend with me and second its going to be Stampin Up's 25th Convention....I am sure it will be thee place to be next July! I will post pics once I get them organized.  I brought my Ipad which was nice and light!
Have to get going to get ready for today!
I miss you all back in Vermont....
