Studio Reno, Shopping and Life Wedding Invitation with a Garden Twist

It has been to long between posting and way to long sharing. I have been working on a number of projects mostly wedding invitations, getting my studio ready for the new flooring and finally painting my studio. Yes, pictures will follow.

The Reno
I must say packing up my studio has been a challenge, I mean oh my god I have so much stuff. I can't possible share how much, it is sick. I even had to buy big large bins to store everything, I bought 7 yes 7, 36 gallon containers which I have filled to the rim. This doesn't count the other endless Rubbermaid containers I already had. But I am getting there, little at a time.

The guys are coming tomorrow to dig a hole in my cement basement so that the floor will be level and there won't be any buckling later. So what I thought was a small job is really a big one, but soon the red floor with half tiles (the people who owned the house previous only tiled where the carpet ended) will be gone. I am going to ensure that I take a before and after pic for the record of course.

Postman Rings Twice ... in One Day
This week I received 2 special deliveries one from Two Peas and the other Papertreyink. I pretty well limit myself to these 2 places plus my Stampin Up stuff. From Two Peas I bought or should I say at the time cleared out 4 of their Wisteria Collection Paper series I am not kidding I bought 20 sheets of each style, going to make wedding invitation with them. For who? who cares I just love the paper. I also bought the matching stamp set which I will be using as part of the design. Here are the links to what I bought in case your interested.
