    Work Wednesday – Gotta get cleanin!

    Today is my clean up day! I am super late getting going but after fixing a lil fire first thing I’ve been a touch under the weather, dude too but from the car rev’s I can hear and the flight of the Dinosaur and Giraffe I think the Tylenol may have done its trick 🙂 “Cleaning?” you may ask but if you’ve seen my desk you’ll know why. Heck I’ll just show you… You can see my felt from yesterday’s tut and my awesome new buy in those baskets but I just threw junk in there so that’s its own mess. But my Studio Calico Documentary order is coming this…

    SOG Thursday – Behind the scenes at SOG Central

    All that’s left to finish off the office is namely a lil curtain under the desk to hide all the cords and such but who knows when I’ll get to that (not to mention which color to use) and paint the desk top but it enough done to share. The day was full to the brim so I didn’t get any projects in (boo!) so Friday is going to be fun day! My office area… my crafty area… I know its not fancy smancy but I adore this rearranged space! I can’t wait until I can officially call it my home office! As in I WORK FROM HOME. So geeked!…

    bummer, no crafting

    I’m totally bummed about the stitches thing. You never really realize how much you use your left hand (I’m right handed) until its a bummer. Its really just the one finger that’s all but up but its right on the base so when I push or pull with the others it pulls on the stitches so it all might as well be busted. Enough woe as me, there’s still a ton I can do with one hand. Crafting not so much though. We are getting past the half way point with the new office/crafty space. The new big office desk is up, the rest of the furniture is moved. But…

    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…

    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…

    Squeekin in!

    BUZZZZZZZ!  I just slid in right under the buzzer with my LO for the “Imagine Challenge” on CM. Or that’s what I’m calling it at least LOL!!! I think it had a nicer title. I started on it yesterday but didn’t have time to finish with children who think bedtime is the worlds worst punishment! I ended up snugglin dd and reading my book which in and of itself is wonderful but that LO was calling me! I was stumped on how to do the title anyway. I love how it turned out even though that was a TON of hand cutting. Its fun though! I need to get some…

    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…
