This One's For You, Penny!

Hi!! My name is Binki and I live in Mommy's craft room. I'm a chinchilla and very cute and soft if you can catch me! I like to bounce around the room, but I don't think Mommy is going to let me do that in here because there is too much stuff I can get into. I have huge ears and can hear really well- especially when that dog, Bella is coming around... she tries to jump on my cage to bite me and scares me sometimes, but I know I can beat her up with my sharp teeth!

Today I'm going to give you a tour of Mommy's craft room- or OUR room, rather, because Mommy's friend, Penny Duncan of Penny Duncan Creations wanted to see pictures of where we work! Mommy says Penny is one of the most giving, wonderful persons she knows and that she also creates beautiful artwork she shares on her website that you should go peek at if you're a fellow art lover!

Are you ready for the tour?

Here is Mommy's brand new addition to her craft room!! She won this banner from Suze at Junque Drawer Chick. Isn't it soo pretty? You can see better pictures of it at Mommy was gushing over it as soon as she got it. It had everything she loved, she said! She said she couldn't believe what an awesome giveaway gift it was. And said that Suze makes THE most AMAZING mosaics ever! Mommy doesn't even really like mosaics, but she just LOVES the ones Suze does with their sweet pink and shabby chic look. Maybe she will get one for Christmas :)

Oh... would you look at that mess! Mommy sure is messy sometimes. She has to put all her spools of ribbon and yards of lace in boxes because she doesn't have anywhere else to store them. Oh, how I'd love to get in to those boxes and chew them up!

Mommy bought this wicker shelving from a garage sale for $15! It looks so tasty!

Mommy stole this idea of using an over the door shoe system to hold color coordinated loose ribbons and things from a bunch of people on the internet!! That thief!

Sorry for the dark picture. Mommy's new banner is hanging up over this window and she has a turn-y embellishment center on top of a file cabinet that holds all her cardstock and paper scraps. I like to imagine myself bouncing off the walls and knocking all this stuff over so I could then chew on it all!! What heaven!

Here is a snippet of Mommy's feather tree she was gushing about not too long ago. She couldn't believe she got it for $29.99! She said most of them are $70 and that she was lucky to find this one. I think feathers would tickle my nose.

These are pictures of Mommy's messy table where she glitters and feathers everything she touches! Soon, I think I will be covered in glitter, too! Ahh!!!

And this is my home!! I hope you enjoyed the tour. I am very sleepy and think it's time for my nap now. Nighty night!
