crafty purple frog not square

we at the crafty purple frog are far from square :)

so out comes the other shapes.

I have made shaped cards before

but I do not think I have ever made a rectangle shaped card.

So outta the square for me

and here is my rectangular card :)
some of the pics kinda look square but the card is not

I kinda like the hint of a difference.

hope you are all well & able to join in on our challenge :)

good luck

my storage & somethin special

This is where I sit at the computer

and really where I do most of my stuff

I guess you could call it my crafting hub :)))

My hubby & I built this paper rack yesterday

and I spent most of the nite organizing my papers

on the top of the 12x12 rack are 8 1/2x11

plastic racks I bought at the local hardware store

the plastic magazine rack holds my 6x6 cardstock,

each envie has it's own color
not sure I love it but will keep it like this for now

here is some bling, charms & flower storage

in the drawers are mostly my embellies

this is my new containor that fits my copics perfectly :)

this is some letters with hangers I bought from Mike's last week
I hung the baggies on them & made it my misc tools section :)
anyways if you have any questions about my room let me know

Also this week I got a new ring :)
I have been dreaming of a past, present & future ring forever.
I dreamt of using my old diamond from my original setting
(it had been loose in the setting so I stopped wearing it a while back)
when I stopped wearing it we bought another
solitare ring that I had been wearing.
So we took my old diamond (past)
the one I was wearing (present)
bought a new one (future)
and combined them all into this beautiful setting :)

I feel so spoiled
so much like a queen
I am so excited to show you our ring
thanks for lookin
