My Happy Place

Good morning everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful  Mother's Day. Our weekend was pretty laid  back. We took Eli the puppy to the dog park and we learned real quick that he prefer to play with the big dogs than the small ones.

It's so cute to see him running around with the pack. His eyes just got big when he saw the big dogs running together and his whole body wiggle with excitement to join. Yes..., I was the proud mommy. To me, my doggies are my kids, and literally I feel like my heart just swell when I saw how happy he is playing with the other dogs. And, of course, he got lots of love from the people in the park. :)

I love seeing him so happy, that we took him back to the dog park again the next day. And... yep, still love following the big dogs. He has no fear. When the big dogs barked at him, he barked back and everyone just laugh when they heard his small deep bark compare to the loud deep bark of the lab. I really do love my li'l guy so very much.

Now, that I've done my bragging, let's get on with card, shall we. In case you didn't know, this coming weekend, Some Odd Girl will be hosting a Facebook Fun Day event with lots of giveaway. To get the excitement going, we are also doing "Bright Colors Challenge." You can see all the details HERE

And, here's my card using SOG Nouveau Girl Dancer. Isn't she just so sweet?

Also, I think it's been over a month since I re-do my craft room and sigh... I still haven't quite get it super organized. But, rather than keep delaying posting pic of my craft room new color, I decided to just go ahead and post a couple pics.

Here's a pic of one corner of my room, where my ribbon holder hang. Hubby made this ribbon holder and yes, it's over flow. I ended up stacking some ribbons on top of the shelve. Before, my room color is dark blue and now it's more like soft teal. Well, hubby said it's like mint chocolate chip ice cream color (minus the chocolate). My room is definitely much brighter now.

Below, is the new hutch that we got from IKEA. I love IKEA. :) We went there to get bedside drawer for my side of the bed, but when I saw this hutch, I told hubby forget bedside drawer, I want this!! Hah! I haven't really organize all the stuff the way I want to, but it's good enough. At least, I can craft. I  plan on re-arranging the pictures and all the other knick knack.

I love that this hutch has adjustable slots and  has drawer on the bottom.

The paper stacked on this hutch is only a fraction of papers that I do have. The rest are in the closet and on the shelves on the opposite side of this desk. There's a reason why I haven't take pic of that shelves. :)

I admit, I am not one of those super organized people. I'd like to. I have good intention to be one. But, it seems like I always end up doing organized chaos, which means, things tend to pile up, but I do kind of know where everything is. 

The hardest part for me is organizing the scrap papers. If I put it away,  then I forgot about it. So, I keep a small basket on my desk that hold the small scraps and the medium size one kind of piling on the corner of the desk (which I smartly hidden from the camera, hehe...).

I keep telling myself, messy desk means I am busy creating. I only have so much time in a day and I rather spend it creating than putting things away and have to pull it back out again. ;)

That's it for today. Hope you enjoy this mini tour of my craft room. Thank you for stopping by here and may your week starts off in an awesome way.

Aww! I loved your story about Eli at the dog park! It sounds like he was in heaven! :) My dogs are like my kids too - can't imagine life without them. :)

Love seeing a peek of your craft room. I recently painted mine a lighter colour too and it's so much nice to work in.

Your card is wonderful. The background is so different and perfect for this card. The room color! Finally, we can see who won the office pool (just kidding). I was waiting to find out though - hehe. Love it!
