Inspiration Alley!!

Welll... many of you know that I share my work space with my husband. We have a small home office and one desk houses our shared computer and another desk equipped with a large hutch supplies me the space I need to create. Unfortunately- we don't have a basement. In buying this house I conceded to let Hubby have the reins in the office. He picked the colors, the decor, and has pub signs, Red Wing/Tigers/Lions memoribilia strewn about the walls and pretty much ANY else that doesn't move. In my tiny little creative corner I wanted a cork wall. But- there was no room. I bought the cork tiles regardless. I was going to put those bad boys SOMEWHERE- and then like a lightbulb it hit me last week- how about I place them on the closet door. It's just to the left of my desk, in plain sight for me, but behind the office door enough that hubby isn't "distracted" by it!

Last night I went to town decorating my new space. I printed my calendars, got some great pieces of scrap ribbon, pulled out my RAK's (random acts of kindness), die cut blooms, and started something great... the more I looked at it, the more I knew it needed. Time for my trusty Rub-Ons... I know many of you have YET to use SU!'s awesome rub-ons- I assure you they are some of *the* best quality rub-ons I've ever come across.

I got busy using a couple different sets and here is what my final product looks like... Tahhh Dahhhh!!

I'm soo happy with the result. Here are close-up's:

Calendar of Events and cards I need to make

Spot to showcase some of my latest work and inspiration pieces.

RAK Wall with two cards from Beth (my fabulous Upline)

I have ONE cork board left... If I could get some suggestions they'd be much appreciated. If I decide to use YOUR suggestion I'll send you a little goody bag full of some awesome SU! treats!! :)

And of course... I couldn't post without leaving a card. Here is something I created for part of my Stamps By The Month Club- sign up for a three month subscription (do NOT have to be consecutive months) of cards. Tell me who they are for, what they are for, and how many you need PER month. Get them delievered or mailed by the middle of the previous month. You pay based on how many average cards you have for all three months. Great deal if I say so myself!

This is for a 2 year old's birthday...
I used Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge and some awesome Sticky Cuts Letter's from the Spring/Summer Catty. LOVE those bad boys!! I used them for Tommy's 2nd b-day card, Trina's 30th, and now this one.
There is a contest in our SU! Demo publication for the month of July using them... I think I may enter. Just because I like them THAT much!!!
Enjoy everyone... have a great rest of the week, can't believe it's HUMP day! :)

I love the cork boards! Did you get the ones with a sticky backing? You are so organized! Do you want to organize my craft closet? Keep up the great work!
