Ham Ham Hammer It!

I love using negative space from dies and punches to display beautiful designer paper, like I did here with the hammer placing the Urban Underground designer paper behind the cut out.

My post from April 25, 2017 (yesterday) talks about the supplies used. This card is approximately 3 x 6. I cut it so the fold is on the top and the card can stand on its own.

Don't delay, be sure to get your Urban Underground supplies while they are still available.

Sorry this is going to be a short post tonight. My hubs and I have been spending a lot of time in the evenings finishing up my studio (finally and Amen to that!). I am hosting my splines team meeting here this coming Sunday and I am so excited. This will be the first time the space has been used by more than my family and myself and my friend Jeny.

This phase of the studio remodel is minutes away from being done and I will give a grand tour. As the hubs and I found out tonight, confirming our many years suspicion, there is only 1 inch insulation behind the 1970 wood paneling in there. Explains why even in warm weather it is often low sixties (F) in temp when I come down and both of us often run our space heater in the summer when the house air conditioning is on. Sad and expensive but true.

The eventual plan is to strip both his office and my studio all the way back to the cinder blocks, frame properly, ceiling too, and more than 4 sets of outlets. upgraded recessed lights and more. All in good time. In the mean time, our next phase of remodel includes putting a bathroom on the same floor as my studio, rough ins are there. and more. We have to put a bathroom in before we gut the upstairs because both upstairs bathrooms are likely to be out of commission at the same time. Oh lovely homeownership. Joy, joy, joy.

Thanks for stopping by today. Keep being creative, Sandy
