The weather has not been cooperating with me tonight! We got a severe thunderstorm through here at about 7:30 pm and it knocked power out for over 4 1/2 hours. It started out with a lot of thunder and lightening and then to liven things up a bit we were hit with 55-60 mile per hour winds and hail the size of marbles and a friend measured some at her house that was over 2 1/2 inches in diameter. I haven't heard the official rain total but I would imagine it was at least 1 1/2-2 inches in about an hours time. I ended up cooking supper by candle light and we ate supper at about 10:45!
I had planned on showing some pictures of the flower and vegetable garden tonight but didn't get pictures before the storm and after the storm every plant in the garden had been shredded. My husband had some beautiful corn, beans, squash, and tomato plants but alas no longer! I haven't been able to do any crafting this week but was going to start a project tonight and now without electricity I don't have light to do any work. I took these photos of my craft room using flash so I can show you something of what I am doing. I am so excited that it is starting to come together!
First off here is a picture of my desk this week. You aren't going to believe how little is actually cluttering it up!! Surprise! If you didn't make it to my blog last week I told everyone I had decided to stay in the smaller room but due to space issues I am putting in new storage drawers/shelves etc.
This second picture is of the closet that I put a shelf unit and a couple of the plastic 4 drawer bins in, stacking them so I could have more space for my 'stuff'. I decided to move the paint bottle rack to the closet because I needed the space for my stamp pads that I use more then the paint.
I am not finished with the closet yet as I want to organized some of the things a little different but decided to put stuff in the approximate position it will end up in the end so I can keep shifting stuff around. I have so much 'stuff' that I am seriously thinking about unloading some of it on eBay!
If you have made it this far in the post you are probably wondering what all this is about! WOYWW is the brain child of Miss Julia Dunnitt at Stamping Ground. Every week I travel the globe looking at the desks of other crafters/artists without leaving the comfort of my desk chair. Check it out! Click the link and get ready for a ride of a lifetime. I am off to check out the blogs. Check back later and I promise I will have 'created' something.
