Getting a late start on WOYWW - not feeling great today... didn't get a chance to take pix of my desk today, so thought I'd share some pix of the before & after of my studio renovation! If you're not sure what I'm talking about - click HERE and pop over to Julia's desk to check out the crafting desks around the world!
Here's the before picture:
When we moved into the house, this was our bedroom... then it was transformed into Jack's PLAY room (yes, he has one, too!)... and then, because I was growing out of my small room downstairs, Jack was kind enough to "donate" his room to me!
Little Miss Handy!! Putting up my shelves from IKEA - one of MANY shelves/drawers from IKEA that had to be assembled... which I LOVE to do. I was such the tom-boy - always helping my Dad with projects around the house. I've always loved *making* things - almost doesn't matter what.
Full of stash and WELL used! I love that I have room for FOUR people to sit and play together. The drawer units from IKEA are on wheels so they can be rolled across the room to make space for two more people!
Here's a pic from last year (the walls are so bare!) of me and my 3 bestest friends (Connie at the end, Matty next to her, then Pam - my sister-in-law, and ME!). Making our TH Christmas Tags! And ... incidentally ... that is my ARM/ELBOW sitting on the desktop! But it looks really WRONG....
This is turning into a long post.... but I have to share what came in the mail yesterday, all the way from the UK!!! Yes, folks, another package of goodies from HELS! She is spoiling me *rotten* (and I love it!) LOL!
|New steampunk stamps from the Artistic Stamper!, ART PARTS!, "Oh My Dear" stampotique stamp, suede flowers by Maya Road, amazing chipboard shapes, and a Hels Original... the keychain tags she did last summer!|
Don't forget to check out the Warrior Woman Blog Hop for Breast Cancer Awareness! There are LOTS of chances to win blog candy! Click HERE if you missed yesterday's post.
Have a great Wednesday!
