11 April 2010


This week, Adam decided to move his desk area out into the living room so that:
1. we could spend more time together out there.
2. I could have the whole spare room as an art area!!
His new area took us all of Wednesday and some of Thursday to put together.
Yesterday, I started to work on my little area. Oh my goodness!
I literally took me all day and night yesterday to get pretty much no where.
I have tooooo much stuff!
So, my mom was amazing and came over today, after church, to help me!
Well, again, it took all stinking day, but the room is finished and it looks amazing!!
Here are some shots:

I still have to hang my peg board above my table so that I can hang all of my supplies from it :)
Speaking of...does anyone live near an Ikea?!
I absolutely need those white pegboard containers and they don't sell them online!!

If you live near an Ikea, please let me know and I will pay you to pick me up some and send them my way! please!!
Oh, and here is my very first project in my new space!!
I used the bonus page prompts from Rachel and Elsie's Story class :)

i am already loving the class and it hasn't even started :)
goodnight loves!
