Yeah for Presents!!

g
Here are some of the awesome presents I received for Christams. My wonderful son and husband really took care of me this year.
<----- See this!! It is a light studio. My craft room is very dark and even with the lights on full blast, I have trouble getting good photos... as you've probably noticed in the past. But, no more, now I will have great photos!! or at least well lit :-)
As well, I also got some paper shelves... finally. I have been trying to figure out how to organize my 12 x 12 paper. Before Christmas, we found some cube shelf units that can all be connected and they had paper shelf units. My wonderful husband bought me 3 of the paper holders and a few of the different drawer cubes.
They are wonderful and my craft room is much more organized than it used to be :-) That makes me a very happy crafter!!
My wonderful son bought me a stamp set. However, when it came time to wrap presents, it had not arrived from SU headquarters yet. So, he wrapped a piece of wood inside a box. Along with this, he added a note that read something like this, "I ordered you a stamp set for Christmas but it didn't come in on time. But that's okay because it's the thought that counts, right." It was so sweet! And then, hubby pulled out the actual stamp set because it did end up arriving just in the nick of time !! It was a wonderful Christmas around here! I hope you all had a great holiday as well.
Now, I'm very excited to start stamping and scrapbooing again!! I have been working on some lessons from my Design Basic book. I am learning a lot and can't wait to share with you too!!
Thanks for visiting.

Awww, that was so cute about your son and your gift. Aren't kids adorable sometimes?! The light studio is AWESOME! Can I come to your house to photograph mine?! LOL The cubes are great, too! I have been eyeballing them for a while at ACMoore, but they are around $20-25/cube. I think I need to get hubby to make me some. :) Kel

Fun gifts! I want studio light for my b-day, but I broke my camera a couple days ago, so I may have to settle for a new camera! I love your storage items!

I think your two men put a lot of thought into your gifts. They did a great job.

The storage cube are dreamy. I've been looking and looking and haven't found anything like them. W
