My craft area

Boy I miss my craft area!

I had some major re-organization in my craft area last weekend.  I bought some new storage units, assembled them and started to organize my stash.  I was very excited with one of the units because it fits Close to my Heart stamp sets perfectly.  I have been looking for the right unit and have been trying different ones.  The one I used previously was nice but I was sad to realize that the model was discontinued so I could not buy it anymore.  While my collection continues to grow, I really need something new to accommodate all my stamps.  I was over the moon to have found this new unit that works so nice.  I also got some new units for papers and now everything is contained and my craft area looks so much nicer.  I've also organized the living room to put up a small Christmas tree.

Perhaps I've invested energy too much in organization, I have been coughing non-stop since then.  Had I known that this cough was coming I would have let go of organization and crafted.  Had I known that....

Nevertheless I was finally able to get out of bed and played for a short while.  I've used this sketch from Seize the Sketch to make a Christmas card:

At first I wanted to use a different stamp set but after changing my mind for about a million times, I think I like this one:

My card is linking up to the following challenges:
