Thunder-ing love, with brads thrown in the mix..

Happy Sunday!

What's going on in your part of the world??

Moi--just enjoying my cup of coffee, listening to my hubby sing his silly songs to DD (who's crabby), and admiring the beautiful tile work in my kitchen! Keith did a wonderful job with the tiles----I think he's a keeper! lol

Had a sleepover on Friday night upstairs, as the kitchen was off limits, therefore we (April, hubby, and myself) had to stay out of the kitchen, as that's the way to get to our rooms. One doesn't realize how much one room is used until it's off limits! That's the way it goes, huh? So, we had a sleepover in my craft room, which went well...but I was a little sore Saturday morning! ;)

I did a LO that night for the weekly challenge at And I am pleased to say that it is 100% all CC products! woohoo!

And it's of my puppy! Well, he's not really a puppy, not anymore. He's 5 years old now....hard to believe because he still acts like a puppy. He's a Lab/Shepherd mix, and he's a BIG boy. And a big baby! He's a loyal fellow!

At one point, we had 4!! dogs---1 black Lab, 2 Lab/shepherd mix, and 1 Dalmatian. Our Dalmatian, Duchess, who was deaf,  lived until she was 12 years old, and died on my sons' birthday. Boy, she was headstrong--kinda like me, I guess! Our other Lab/shepherd mix, Harley was an angel. He reminded me of that dog in the Pixar movie 'UP', Doug. That dog will always have a special place in my heart---he was awesome! They all are/were, but Harley, he was one of a kind! Then there was  Duke, our pure Lab. We had to put him down last summer, which is a very hard thing to do. He was a HUGE dog, not big, but HUGE. Even the vet who came to our place to administer the procedure was very surprised at how huge he was. He weighed more than 120 pounds... what??! Yep, he was a big boy. And a great dog! They all were! And now all whom we have left is Thunder....for now, it seems! Keith wants to get another dog soon. Oh boy!

Anyways, onwards.

I am having a little problem with my crafting storage. Brads, in particular. These are my go-to staples.  But storing them is another thing. I have, and still am, accumulated quite a bit, and need ideas, for storing them.This is how I store them now, but they take up precious room.

These brads are the ones I have purchased recently, and are still in the package. I think my problem is whether I want to take them OUT of the

Then there are these, which I had bought in the past years, and when I did not much space.

I am not sure I want to do this again. I just want everything all together, brads should be with brads, eyelets with eyelets and tools, all paper together, etc.  Any ideas??

Anyways, keep calm and get crafty!

Have a great day!
