Good evening 🙂

What’s a “Squeal” out?   Well, normally it would be a ”shout out”, but since we’re dealing with THE pig, then it’s a squeal :).   THE pig I am referring to is Hambo.   You see, last week I was surfing around and landed on the Talk to the Ham blog.   I literally did squeal when I saw this drawing of a toy soldier by Tim.   I adore toy soldiers.   Well, they were having a little contest/bidding war to see who would win the digi-image, and guess what?!   I won!   So, not only is this my first toy soldier, it’s my first digi-image, too!   Thank you, Monica and Tim!!

When I saw the Monday Mojo (MOJO108), I just knew it was a perfect fit for this awesome image.


Here are my deets:

Image:  Toy Soldier by Hambo; sentiment is computer generated

Colors: Basic Black, Basic Gray, Very Vanilla, Paper Studio dp

Ink: Versafine Black onyx, copics

Accessories: ribbon, candy dots, circle punches, dimensionals


Now for those pictures I promised!   I am no Martha Stewart, but I love my space.   It has lots of room to move around and there’s potential for just about anything 🙂

This is the view from the door across the room towards the two corner windows:


My armoires that I found on Craigslist:


My desk (It came out dark because it’s nighttime and the flash wouldn’t go off with the florescent light on):


My new closet shelves:


My punch storage:


AND… can you believe I have made four cards since cleaning and it’s STILL clean?!   Red letter day!


Thanks for stopping by!   I hope you have a great night!  Blessings!

    Great mojo card, Holly and I’m so glad you won your little toy soldier 😀

    Thanks for the pictures of your stamping space. You guys did a great job on it! I thought I had a lot of ribbon, but I think you have me beat LOL and yours is MUCH more organized than mine on those lovely dowels (mine is stacked in drawers). Now we know where the creativity occurs 😀
