Craft Room

I thought I would share a few pictures of my newly finished craft room

 It's a bit cramped, but I've managed to fit everything I need. Including my cat, Asher.
 Since this picture was taken, I've actually added more boxes and downgraded my action figure collection. It broke my heart, but I'm over 30
 My desk is to the left, and my Husband's is to the right. He can be in their working on music while I work on my cards. The steampunk prints are from a fantastic shop on Etsy. They print on old encyclopedia pages and it looks awesome.
 I'm what is apparently referred to as a 'collector'. The drawer next to this is filled as well...I have them all....*Sigh* I need to attend some art supply anonymous meetings or something...
The collection has grown since this picture and spilled into 4 of these cases...Did I mention I'm a collector?

Let them eat Cupcakes!

 I fell in love with this designer. Her characters are so adorable. This one is Marie Antoinette from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps. I'm not used to using stamps for my characters instead of printed Digis. I'll admit it took some getting used to and was very frustrating at first, but once I got a clean image to work with, I was able to scan it in and now I'll be able to work with it easier in the future.
I had a lot of fun with her hair. I had the recent Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette in mind when I colored her, keeping the colors very candy gloss.

 I can't live without my Distress Inks.

So, this all went into a Birthday Card for my co-worker. I made her a cheesecake, but cupcakes just sounded cuter (And usually more what I'm known for)

And this was the finished card. Sparkles and pastels. Very fun.
