Creative Spaces!!!

I was so flattered to be chosen to be a part of this Creating Keepsakes special issue. It's all about making a place to create in your home. I love that it's not just about scrapbooking because I use my creative space for so much more: gift-wrapping, quilting (okay, so I've only made one quilt), cardmaking, hiding from Claire....you get the idea.

Even if you don't have a space to make an entire room, there's plenty of ideas in here for small cubbies and other neat storage ideas. The folks at CK really pulled out all the stops on this issue, the art inside is gorgeous and the rooms they chose are so different. I was left thinking "I wish I had thought of that!" even though my room was featured.




So, hop on over and get your copy now. There's no time like the present because CK is offering FREE SHIPPING (enter code: SPACESBB at checkout) until May 27. I will remember that because it's the day before my 10th wedding anniversary (insert wink to Greg here).

If you're still not convinced, there's a sneak peek that will surely push you over the edge.

As if that wasn't enough, CK is letting me give a copy away to one of my blog readers. Just leave a comment here for a chance to win. I'll leave this post open until Friday. Good luck!
