What I have been up to.... or not

Today has been a bill, laundry, and cleaning day so I haven't done much in my craft room. I thought I would share some pictures with you of my craft room.
My craft room is the last room in my house to get cleaned. It is usually not to bad but I have had so many projects and been out of town so many times the last couple of months that it has been neglected. 

I had to run to the bank today and "sadly" (LOL) it is right by my Hobby Lobby. I usually avoid the temptation to go but I had just talked to Robyn who had told me that the paper packs were on sale. I found some cute packs! I already have some ideas of what projects I want to use them on.

Wow, you have tons of paper storage. I, too am a paperholic. I love the new pads but I have put myself on a one year no paper buying ban. I'm counting down the days until July 1, 2011...No, really I have as much paper as most stores :)

All I can say Karlee is......
You habe LOTS of Hobby Lobby bags.

Maybe you need to block Robin on your phone. LOL

In fact I was at HL today too. I only bought a few single pages and something with my coupon. I will be back tomorrow to really look at the stacks. Now I will have HL bags on my floor. hehe

Karlee, I love your purple and green rugs :) those are two of my favorite colors together. Let me tell you I would have been so jealous a few weeks ago, but we just had a grand opening of the very first Hobby Lobby in WA state, and it is only 20 minutes from my house! To say i am giddy is an understatement :) Thanks for sharing your craft space, Andrea

Cuddles and Chaos said...

I love your paper holders. I need some. I love paper.

I hit up Hobby Lobby today too...as a treat after a blah dr's appt. Oh dear, I love that store. I was good and only got 2 paper packs...one of the Christmas ones you got. My hubby loved that one too.

I hope you have a great day and that your fil is doing much better.

Maureen Reiss said...

Nice haul Karlee!!! My craft space always looks like that what do you mean it's a mess. lol

flowerdisco said...

i did too bought some more papers and a few things for the house...all 50% off. isn't great? yay!

Cheryl B said...

I really think that this is how most craft rooms are supposed to look! It's part of the creative process!!! I know I think better when I have stuff all around me...and I also went to hobby lobby, but instead of the paper packs, I decided that I really just needed some green stickles!! What you mean one bottle of stickles doesn't cost $50??? I can't imagine what else I might have picked up!LOL

Patti said...

Your room doesn't look to worst for wear. And by all means, gotta hit Hobby Lobby when you can. The closest Hobby Lobby to me is about 35 miles away, not to tempting. But there is a Michaels about 12 miles away, so I hit there a bit more often. Anyway, have a great day.

Haidee said...

Hello, it's a sale.LOL I went to JoAnn & Michaels too!

Rebecca said...

OOOOH.. Karlee I can't wait to see the projects you will make with your new papers. I really need to go for a trip down to the states to get me some good deals on craft stuff. I find even with the dollar exchange everytime I go to Seatle or Walmart between Bellingham and Seatle its WAAAAAAAAY cheaper than here. Gotta check to see where that Hobby Lobby is in WA.

Sharon said...

Those paper packs are awesome!! I'll have to stop at ours tomorrow. It is across and down in the shopping center where I work. Very handy!! :)

meredith said...

Nice to see I'm not the only one whos craft room is perfectly unperfect'!!
I wish I had all of your paper storage. We don't have HL here but looking around my room right now I can see lots of plastic bags full of supplies, lol

jilleenhays said...

Karlee - I don't know how you could not go into Hobby Lobby - I think I would have to find a new bank!

Can you let us know where you got your shelves/crates that are under your desk - they look wonderful.

Jeanette said...

I am having my first grandbaby so if you find any thing baby you dont want let me know. hehe.
GOD BLESS YA.

Nicole said...

Wow! I wish there was a HL close to my bank...but on the other hand I go broke! I only get to HL once a year so I always look forward to that! Those paper pads look very intriguing!

Sanwanya said...

wow girl look at those HL bags..lol love you craft room!! cant wait to see what you come up with using your new paper!

Kim H said...

Big Time Stamper Want to Be said...

My Craft room is the last room to be cleaned as well. I know my husband probably cringes every time he comes and finds me in the middle of the mess. But I call it creative thinking spot. LOL.
Have a great day weekend!

Erica said...

Don't worry, I plan on going to Hobby Lobby tomorrow to stock up on paper, too. You can't help it if it's right there!

Kathy said...

Wish Hobby Lobby was not an hour away. They have some of the best deals. Thanks for sharing pics of your room.

Tracey's KRAFTS said...

Hi Karlee you have a fab craft room and sooooo much craft things lol! You have inspired me into buying a Bind It All...can't wait to get my hands on it! Off to a stamp and scrapbooking show the end of this month so it is top of my list. Keep up the good work of inspiring us all.

Angel said...

Awesome Space... I was wondering what yours looked like after seeing you help Robyn.
I do not blame you for stoping as I did the same thing and I got 2 of the same stacks that you have bought. lol We think alike..lol

becky50 said...

Karlee, I can't resist temptation either. Do you think we need a 12 step program?
