Hope everyone has had a chance to recover from the wonderful party that was the 2nd Birthday Anniversary of What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday last week. I made it around to every blog and really enjoyed reading and snooping around the sites. Blogger wasn't functioning up to par and occasionally I couldn't leave a comment. If you want to find out more about what I am going on about pay a visit to the Queen of Snoops site and meet Julia Dunnitt and join in the fun.
This week has been a very busy week for me. I had a class teaching Tim Holtz style tag making to a group of 8 awesome women. They were all pleasantly surprised that they too could do that grunge and Steampunk stuff. We did three tags total, one using Ranger color wash, one using stains, and one where we made a stamp out of the Elegant Flourish die. I made these tags in April for a class last month but because of 3 deaths in the family/friends didn't get to do it till this month. Everyone had a blast and told me that they were looking forward to next month.
Another thing I have been busy trying to get done is get the house and my craft room/studio reorganized. That isn't an easy task for me with some of my health issues but I have been plugging away pushing the limits to do a little bit each day. I have decided to stay in the small bedroom and reorganize it rather than to transform the larger spare bedroom into a studio. I like this room and get good vibes when I am in there and I think I would rather the bigger room be used for guests. I don't know might change my mind next week but this is what I have done so far. This is my desk this week! Messy much? Yeah a lot! I spent two days putting together this drawer unit, actually 2 units, to store my stuff in. Unfortunately you can hardly see the unit. I got them at IKEA and I think I am going to love it/them.
Another view of the drawer unit. There are a total of 3-3in deep and 3-4in deep drawers in each unit giving me a total of 12 new drawers to store stuff in! I bought these about a year ago and was waiting till I got in my new room and after deciding to stay in this room I spent 2 days off and on putting them together.
Thought that you might like to see what is in the one drawer! It is all my border and corner punches! I actually have 3 drawers full of punches and when I was putting them in the drawers I thought OMG! I am a hoarder but I don't think this qualifies cause I use each and every punch through out the year and God knows it is the tools of my trade. Cross my heart!!
Now this is the big bargain find for my 'new' craft room. My nephews wife (guess that makes her my niece-in-law I think after this she will be just niece!) is a garage sale/thrift shop shopper and a while back she called and then she texted me a pic of a paper rack and wanted to know if I wanted it! Did I want it? Are there cows in Texas? Still a Pope in the Vatican? Long story short I told her "sure if it is reasonable" all the time expecting to pay $25-35 for it. My darling dear niece got this rack for the outrageous price of $6. Awesome huh!
Well I guess that is enough chatter for this week. I hopefully will have things organized and some thing nice to show you next week! I am off to snoop around WOYWW blogs! Have a good week!
