Look at the new Craft Cave!



My husband and I switched offices last weekend and I got to make his over into the Craft Cave of my dreams!  I've ordered ribbon storage from Stamp 'n Store, which I'm very excited over.  I'm still looking for wooden paper storage, though.  I love the Calypso Coral on the walls!

From the Herd!



I love this new set from the Occasions Mini!  The first time I saw it, I knew that the front row of animals needed to be popped up on Dimensions, as the wildebeest and pig's noses.  I cut the pons off the old Daffodil Delight pompom trim to decorate the party hats!
