Papertrey Ink Stamp A Faire 2013 Meet and Greet

Hi, fellow Papertrey Ink stampers and fanatics!  Tonight I am gathering a few supplies to try to get ready to participate in PTI's Stamp A Faire 2013 that will be held all day tomorrow.  While I only have a small time frame to craft tomorrow in between some obligations that came up, I hope to finish all the challenges by the end of the weekend.  Even if I have to stay up a wee bit late on Sunday.

I thought I would share a few photos of my craft area, the things I have all ready to start crafting and some projects I have been working on lately.  I share my crafting space with our school room.  As a homeschooling mom to two boys (9 and 12 years old), we spend a lot of time up here in our bonus room/school room.  They have their two desks along a wall and I can sit and craft or surf Pinterest and the PTI design team's blogs while they work at their desks.  Sometimes that works well, other times my crafting is a distraction for them.  Since they like me to be sort of at hand for questions and help, I told them to expect me to be working on something right along with them.    Here are the photos.

My view of the boys' desks from my desk.

A repurposed changing table from my youngest son.

Lots of white storage cubes.  I have been stamping for 11 years.  Believe it or not I continually purge, but alas new purchases take their place.  So much potential so little time.

My new dies and stamp sets ready to go for tomorrow.  I have two coffee sets I want to complete for my Childhood Cancer Awareness auction in September.  Thinking the scratch and sniff technique could be used for a fun tag on the gift set.  

Some pretty projects I made this past week and weekend.  

My paperclay rolled out, molded and ready to dry.  I got the new lightweight Paperclay.  It was a little sticky to roll out, so we will see.  Not sure if it will dry well on the silicone sheet, but I have another day to try tomorrow.  I have muslin dying on the stove (turned off) downstairs for the tea dying technique.  

My new Stamp A Faire stamp sets and my new coffee set ready to go.  Can't wait.  Excuse my messy scratch paper.  Wasn't willing to scrap it just yet.  :)

So anyway, I am ready to go.  Happy Stamping everyone.  I can't wait to see what you all create, what the Design Team cooks up for us, and if I can do all the challenges.

Your space looks great-- thanks for the tour!
I have my fabric dyeing on the stove, too.... I couldn't find muslin, though, so I hope unbleached cotton will work....
Have fun tomorrow!
