    Work Wednesday – Craft Space

    This post is taking forever to write but today my big plan was to do my LO for Design Dollies and to start packing my crafty area for the big furniture move. But alas, I am a major klutz and gave my pointer finger on (thankfully) my left hand a good slice and got 5 stitches today. SO I’m basically a one handed girl for at least a couple days. That’s not stoppin me from day dreaming about my new crafty office area 🙂 Not one bit! Since I don’t have progress pics to show as I planned yesterday (DH would kill me if he came home to stuff moved!),…

    Monday Inspiration – Craft Space/Home Office

    I started on this post first thing this morning, cruising the internet for pics where people combined their home office with their crafty space for some down home inspiration but ya know what? Apparently people don’t want to mix work and pleasure 😉 BOO! I am looking for a lil inspiration in this area. For my birthday I am asking DH to do a furniture shuffle to give me a more efficient work and craft space. I am getting ready for the time where both are going to be super important so I went to furniture shuffle guru for my pressie. But looking on the internet, these are the best…

    Well Hell!

    What a day today has been! My BFF smashed the front fender of the car i was driving….. MY MIL’s!!!!!!!! THEN I get home and have to go pick up said MIL and while backing out the kids (who have been cuckoo-bananas ALL DAY) were crazy fighting, distracted me and I hit a tree! WITH MY MIL’s CAR! AHHHHHHH THEN, even though you’re thinking “isn’t that enough???” I turn my back for a hot minute, no pun intended, and DS scalds his hand on heating soup. He was silent as a cat!!! Not to mention I got oddly chewed by the big boss at work yesterday! Can I please crawl…

    More goodies!!!

    UGH! Its really hard to remember which LO’s I’ve posted and which I haven’t!!! I need to pick some more! Well, on the home front, Esme (DD) had her first day of preschool today! YES I totally cried like a baby once we got out toward the car!!! If she had wanted me to stay I think it would have been easier but as it was she was like “UH! BYE ALREADY!” Of course not the words of a 4 year old but as she shakes me off when I tap her shoulder with a “MOMMA!!!” when I am trying to show her where to hang up her backpack… yeah…

    Makeover time!

    I have 2 makeovers goin on. One is done! Check the bloggy-goodness! I love it 🙂 I hadn’t re-done it in forever. Its all my fav colors!!! The second make over is my “scrap-oire.” It just doesn’t seem that I’m using my space in there very well so I need some ideas. I asked DH his opinion and he was like “uhhhhhhhhhhh” so I thought I’d throw it out there for advice. It looks kinda junky right now. Let’s get into it.  a little junkie. I think I want to paint it. Haven’t gotten that far yet.           The last pic is the side I was thinkin of puttin some clear peg…

    Sweet Temptation

    Yesterday I was looking at my Scrap space and wishing I had just a liiiiitttttle more shelf room and I thought I could buy one of those 9 cube storage things from Taget and slide it right under my counter top. Viola! Well (this is where my tempter rears his handsome but ugly head) I say to DH “Do you know where the tape measurer is?”“Why? What do you need it for?”“To measure something.” I reply to his noseiness 😛“What?”“I wanted to see if one of those cube shelf things would fit under my table. It does and its on sale.”“how much?”“$40, on sale from $50.”“What, are you redesigning?”“If I…

    Scrap Space – A work in progress

    Here is a wonderful pic of the old wall of my scrap space. A bit of a mess … ok, a lot of a mess! I know I was going to wait for my birthday in October but I simply couldn’t!!! I could enlarge my space and make it so fuctional and perfect for less than $50! $18 for the MDF for the counter top, $14 for the clip it up clips and the rest for all the odds and ends (new rail for the shelves, two shelf brackets, a curtain rod). OOOOOO!!!! I’m so excited!!! We decided it would be easier to move the shelves and things while the…

    Can’t stop thinking about it!

    Maybe this is a bit ridiculous but ever since DH said that we could rearrange the office to make my scrap area bigger, THAT IS ALL I CAN THINK ABOUT. I admit, I could use more counter space and the extra space for shelves and storage will be great but just the planning and arranging that is going on in my head is enough to make me giggle and clap my hands like a little kid 🙂 . My counter space will go from a 5x3ft L-shape to a 8×5.5ft L-shape! Drool. No more tripping on myself or piling things I’m using on top of each other. Heck I could…
