Doubleclick Skittles Challenge, Design Team Blog Hop + Blog Candy!

Welcome to Challenge # 25 here at DoubleClick Skittles!  

I'm so happy to have been selected for the Doubleclick Connection Design Team!  Everyone has been so welcoming and I know I'm going to love it here.  A quick little something about me:  I'm married with a 13 year old son and between the 3 of us, we play guitar, piano, saxophone, a little mandolin, bass violin and drums.  We all sing as well.  In my downtime, I love to whip up a gourmet meal with help from my son who also loves to cook.  I'm a freelance craft blogger, writing the occasional craft article, Guest Design occasionally and last summer, was the Guest Blogger and Show Photographer for the Craft and Hobby Association's Paper Arts trade show in 2014.  To "pay the bills", I work for an agency that serves children with disabilities.  And, that's enough about me!

Now, if you arrived from Carri's page, you are in the right place.

Challenge Date: June 24 - July 7

This is our former guest bedroom and now, craft/nostalgia room.  It doubles as my hubby's nostalgia and record collection.  He has the closet and some shelf space, I have the rest of the room, which explains massive stuff everywhere! 

The ugly wallpaper?  Yeah, just ignore that....another project for another day, haha. 

Here's my little crafty corner of the room.  My refurbished student desk and some fun storage panels that I recently made to have better access to the products I use the most.

This is the bookcase where I store my ribbons, stamps, punches and collection of paper.  Lots of embellishments and inks, as well.

This little nook sits right next to my desk and is where I keep my favorite stacks of paper and adhesives, close at hand.  That's one of my hubby's hand-me-down pieces of antique furniture. 

This is another little spot where my husband and I duke it out.  Crafting versus nostalgia.....
I think crafting is going to win!  That decorative Kaisercraft house?  I made that last year and it houses a lot of my little embellishments, such as sequins, buttons, etc.

And, finally, here's the view from the doorway.

Now, head on over to visit Kim......

I'm giving away a little blog candy as well today.   A brand new package of Spellbinders Golden Glow ink from the Celebra'tions collection, 5 Adornit Art Play Paintable coloring images from the Hello Collection and a 12" piece of "handmade with love" May Arts Ribbon from my personal stash.
