Moving is time consuming! :)

WOOOOOO, I hope this is our last move. Ever. Ever ever ever. It is NO fun, and takes boatloads of time. I am still trying to unpack in my lovely new space. My hubs calls it the "craft emporium" and I think it fits. It is a double size room with a small walk in closet, boatloads of space for all my creative stuff. Good thing I purged some of my stuff though, it is still going to be full in this space. I promise to post more regularly when I get completely unpacked and settled in. Here is a pic of a quick and easy wreath I made this month (I was going through severe crafty withdrawal, 2 months is waaaaaaaaaaaay too long not to make something, he he he) ~

Here is a pic of 4 deer (including a fawn) who were munching on some of the gazillion acorns, walnuts, beechnuts, and hickory nuts we now have at our new home ~

Here are pics of my "craft emporium" in partial unpacked status (standing at one end and shooting the length of the room) ~

 A pic of one shelving unit, which as been partially unpacked, walk in closet is to the left ~

One wall inside the closet ~

Standing at the other end of the room, shooting down the length ~

The table that will be my cutting and piecing table for now (once it is cleared off, yikes!) ~

Another view of the shelving unit with baskets of mainly fabric and sewing supplies  ~

Standing at the door of the walkin closet, looking toward my paper rack, which holds some of my punches, my FABOO pink Bind-It-All, and my DreamCuts ~

OK, enough of my mess for now, holy cow.   I only post these pics so you can see how much work it has been for me to pack, move, sort, and unpack my stuff.  WOOOO.  Don't want to do it again.  EVER.  :)

The latest thing I have picked up is decorating cupcakes.  I bought this DARLING book on creating fun cupcakes using candy and other supplies.  For Cara's birthday a few weeks ago I decided to make her the reindeer cupcakes.  She loves Christmas, so it seemed like a perfect fit.  They turned out pretty cute, and seemed to be enjoyed by everybody at the dinner.  I plan to make a different type cupcake next w/e, for a friend's dinner.  Here is a pic of the reindeer cupcakes ~

Well, I better get back to my unpacking.  It is going to be another busy week at work too, so I need to get as much done today as possible.  I'll catch up with you later!   Hope you all have a joyful and creative week  ~ Pam

How did I come up with Pam's Eclectic Stuff?

Pam- that is me. :)

eclectic --adj.- selecting what seems best of various styles or ideas
*Since I like a huge variety of arts and mediums, this seemed perfect, we will talk about the best of various styles or ideas.

stuff- The noun stuff has 7 senses -
1. material, stuff -- (the tangible substance that goes into the makeup of a physical object; "wheat is the stuff they use to make bread")2. whatchamacallit, stuff, whatsis, sundry, sundries -- (miscellaneous unspecified artifacts; "the trunk was full of stuff")3. stuff, clobber -- (informal terms for personal possessions; "did you take all your clobber?")4. stuff, stuff and nonsense, hooey, poppycock -- (senseless talk; "don't give me that stuff")5. stuff -- (unspecified qualities required to do or be something; "the stuff of heros"; "you don't have the stuff to be a United States Marine")6. stuff -- (information in some unspecified form; "it was stuff I had heard before"; "there's good stuff in that book")7. stuff -- (a critically important or characteristic component; "suspense is the very stuff of narrative")

*What more needs to be said? I really thought about using Pam's Eclectic Sundries, but I thought that might be tough to remember. :) Stuff is easy and conveys a variety of meanings. I like the definition- miscellaneous unspecified artifacts. I also liked whatchamacallit, but that is a lot of typing. :)

So there you have it!
