Spellbinders organized

Yesterday I splurged a little on an organizer for my Spellbinder dies, I love using these, but they come on  cards with strong double sided tape and are not easy to remove.
I found out pretty quickly that this organizer is not going very far, it only comes with 3 magnet sheets and the extra sheets are not sold at this store.

...but I came up with a better way. I removed the tape from the back of the card that the dies come in, then I added 3 strips of magnetic tape and put the card into a page protector made of clear plastic (cut in half) This worked great, the cards fit into the organizer box and I did not have to spend more money on the magnetic inserts.

Ikea craft room makeover

My embroidery machines finally needed a better home.On our last trip to Ikea, I saw this white Hemnes dresser and got inspired, it is solid enough to hold the embroidery machines and I love the hight of the dresser, perfect for sewing and it has plenty of storage for thread, stabilizer and fabric.

There are soo many great ideas on the internet about Ikea craft room makeovers, I think this is not the endI love the way the dresser turned out as a home for my embroidery machines, I can't wait for our next trip to Ikea.

New little toy for baby boy

Just finished,
a ribbon blanked with 2 stuffed 'softies'
I hid a couple of jingle bells inside the toys.

one side is made of flannel and the other is fleece.

I love these blankies, they are perfect for keeping the binky and toys from falling, just attach them to the blankie.
