Hello My Sweet Friends

How are you?

I do hope all is well in your world.

Did all you Moms out there have a happy Mothers Day?




I had a wonderful Mothers day.
We took a little drive out to Bullhead City and
had lunch with both of our Moms. 
Good food and good conversation.
Life is good!




The only way it could have been better if
I could have spent it with my daughter and grandson.
Maybe next year?




Well I did it my friends.
 I pulled out what little craft supplies I brought along
 with us and created some Mothers day cards.



WOW!
You should have seen the mess in our RV
when I was done crafting.  At our house I would have
just close the door to my craft room.
Not any more.




Yep, I pulled out my sewing machine..
Can you see me smiling. 



 Here is a little peek at where I store
my craft supplies. 



Right there behind those cabinets
is were all my supplies are crammed in.  




 The purple bin is full of paint and sprays
and glues. Almost everything you would want for mixed
media.   And behind that bin is a great big container of
scrapbook paper. 



And just some of the little bits and bobs you need to make cards.
And stamps and inks in the other drawer.  

I hope you enjoyed my little peek of my new crafting corner. 

Maybe on my next post I will give you a little tour of
Big Berta.  It would only be a couple of photos.
Shes not that big.  LOL.. 


Thanks so much for stopping by my friends
I wanted to say thanks so much for all your 
kind comments, I really do appreciate everyone of them.
You guys are the best.

Hugs~

Wow! I am so impressed, Linda! Not only are you creative, but you are neat, organized, and patient!!! I love the photos of Big Bertha. I really was wondering what it looked like inside. Glad you spent Mother's Day well. I had a nice day, too, with my Mom at my daughter's, for brunch.

Big Bertha may not be all that big but it sure looks beautiful. So glad you had some crafty time. Your cards are gorgeous. I especially like the little banners sewn on the top of the green card. Sorry you missed out on seeding your baby girl. Maybe soon. :-) Hugs!

How wonderful to have some supplies along with you to enjoy your crafting. I always carry an art bag when we travel! And I would LOVE to have a tour! Sweet hugs!

You are amazingly organized, my friend. I am so glad you were able to bring some of your goodies with you. I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day! xo.

Glad you had a good Mother's day celebration...
Both cards are simply beautiful...

Linda B said...

How wonderful to have such an orderly little space to work. Who says it needs to be a huge space with tons of supplies. I think it shows how creative you are when you can just use a smaller stash and produce two beautiful Mothers Day cards like these. Thank you for sharing your beautiful 'home' with us! Looking forward to more photos.
Big hugs!

Sylvia said...

Wow! I am totally impressed with your craft space, Linda! Bertha may not be big, but I wasn't imagining anything like this. No wonder you can live in it! I think you are a celebrity! Love your cards, they are fabulous! Love the photo's of your jars as well! Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Glad you had a nice Mother's day. Your card is beautiful. Love your little crafty space, looks so cozy - small, but good! Hugs, Valerie

Crafting Queen said...

What beautiful photos. Your cards are so lovely. Where do you keep your sewing machine? It must have been hard giving up your craft room. Hope all is going well. :)

Nicki said...

My work areas are down right sad - no, shameful by any comparison. I have daydreams about such organization and fantasize of a world that clean.

Glad you had a delightful Mother's Day; the cards are very cute.

Carol Blackburn said...

You make such beautiful cards Linda. Amazing! Love how organized you are but really though most people don't know how much space these vehicles have just like a mobile home. I live in a mobile on our own land with garage and pole barn. I was totally impressed with the storage space in this home when we bought it. Hope you have nothing but beautiful weather!

Audrey Pettit said...

I would LOVE to see more of Big Bertha, and LOVED seeing your new little scrappy nook! Your trailer is a bit bigger than I had envisioned. So fun to see everything! LOVE your sweet Mother's Day cards. I, too, am smiling to see the stitching and to think of you with your sewing machine in that tiny space. Beautiful! And so glad you had a lovely Mother's Day. Yes, next year with your daughter and grandson!

Lisa Graham said...

It is amazing how homey RV's are these days. Your creative space looks very comfy and cozy and organized!

Happy Mother's Day Linda! I hope you DO get to spend it with your daughter and grandson next year.

Raining here tonight. :-)

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

Is that picture of that cabinet Big Bertha???? I can't believe it, it looks like a home, now I am curious, I want to see Big Bertha before she starts her new journey!!!!
It is amazing how you could still make wonderful cards with little supplies, I don't think I can do that, thumbs up for you!!!!! And the sweet mother's day cards!

unikorna said...

Catherine said...

Oh my stars ~ that just emphasizes how crafty you are to be able to craft in that small of space and be able to reorganize everything back into it's place. Hooray!
Such pretty cards. So glad you had a most happy Mother's Day!

Hi my lovely Linda, you've satisfied my curiosity lol, couldn't even begin to imagine how you could ever squeeze in any crafty supplies, now I know ;)
You've not lost your knack either! Have fun ! Xxx

Your cards are beautiful, I have never gotten into making cards, some days I wish I had, others, not so much. :)

Jinny Newlin said...

LOVE these! So pretty, Linda! And I'd absolutely LOVE to see your tricks for putting everything you need into your small space. Our home is only 920 square feet. I know it's not a motor home, but sometimes, with a family of four, a dog, and a hamster, it feels like it. Have a blessed weekend!

Gay Peplow said...

Oh my, really cool, but so different from having a whole craft room! Your cards are darling. My mom's day would have been better with my daughter, so I know what you mean!

Laura Delegal - Leroy Photography said...

So glad you did. You're so talented and I know it brought you joy.

Sue Lelli said...
