Good morning bloggers. Yippee, I see 4 more followers...maybe I'll make that 100 goal prior to March. Thanks to my new followers, I surely appreciate you taking the time to join and leave comments if time permits. Just a word on the comments: I'll post the comment even if you don't like something, because all comments are helpful..good or bad. I won't post if there is a link to advertising products, etc. (I am ok with links to your OWN blog, but not when it's to sell a product, etc. I hope that makes sense.) I have Moderate setting turned on, so I see comments before they post here. Lately I've gotten some SPAM stuff, so Miss Pixie explained how to turn those off! Thanks again Diane. That Pixie girl is a whiz at this blog stuff, and has been so generous with her help & encouragement. Muchly appreciated.
Today is Wednesday, so you know what that means? WOYWW. And if you don't know what THAT is, oh, you must check it out. It's like going to a big garage sale, or a lovely flea market (or whatever that might be called where you live. Anyway, you get to nose around, and see what some talented crafters have on their desks or in their workspaces). It's fun to peek in, so please join us at Miss Julia's, who makes all this cyber fun possible by hosting a fun circle of crafters.
We worked in my basement stamp room yesterday afternoon. I've shown some pics before of how we moved a table to behind a loveseat in my stamp/tv room. Well, yesterday the DH got some good ideas so he was moving furniture around in the room. I suggested that we should have taken some 'before' pictures, and his very dry comment was "who the Heck would care?"(and being a old navy sailor, he didn't say Heck, but this is a clean blog, so I'll use Heck!). So here goes with the pics. Basically we moved the loveseat to where the sofa was (and my behind has to create a new 'fitted' space, as the end of the sofa where I sit to color had begun to mold itself to my posterior! <g>). We put 2 chairs where the loveseat had been, with the intention of building a bar-type arrangement with some cabinets & a formica top...in order that I can set up my laptop & Silhouette. The cabinets on my desk came from a lumber salvage, are basically bathroom vanity cabinets & have drawers, with a formica top. DH thinks to do something similar for my 'bar', have it waist level as is the desk (that's MY waist level, not a shorter person!). It will be possibly 3 cabinets, with shelving, rather than drawers, as I have in the desk. We think we can cram more
Next the desk, and you can see what is on it ...some new Stampin Up goodies.
And this is the view to the left of the desk, showing my DH-made heatgun holder, for the old Marvy heat gun I've had for long years. There is also a hook on the side of the desk, which holds the smaller Ranger heat tool.
I did clean off the top of the desk last night, wipe down the formica surface, but sad to say, it's all piled full again. Hope you enjoyed the tour of my 'work in progress'. Let's hop around to see some of the other workspaces around the world, hmm? I promise, it's fun. Thanks for stopping to visit, have a lovely day, and come again soon. Hugs*
*Edit: Forgot to say, look at the Hutch cabinet in the corner of #1 pic. This is a handmade piece, I got from a cousin, for $25. It was made as a 'dry sink' to hold a small tv. I have a lot of envelope/card sets stored in the dry sink portion, and stack packs of paper underneath that area. If I could take out the knicknacks on the 2 top shelves, I'd have some good storage too. (but that's DH's stuff, and it was originally meant to be his TV room so no-can-do-- at the moment).
