Office/Studio now open for business
It took a couple of weeks, a lot of help from my husband, some serious sorting and pulling of products and organizing of space, but it is done now! I finally am working out of this space. Crafting is still a little harder as I have to think as to where everything is and then track it down, it all used to be in a grab and go semi-circle around the area I worked at. Not that way anymore as the computer had to take the center stage. I do like the way it is set up, will still probably do little shifts of things from here to there, but all in all it is visually appealing and very usable the way it is and that is what I need!
I have to tell you, getting a bunch of my most used stamps onto the Clip It Up was a huge help! I tried to get the whole 3 layers filled with them, but it was quite comical as it looked like the leaning tower of Pisa if I didn't have the weight distributed properly every time I even touched it. That lasted about 3 days. Now there are the embellishments that I reach for a lot and then a few baskets of stamps under the table joining the paper that is the most reached for. Originally I had wanted to not have anything under the tall table, but space is such a premium in that little work area that I had to compromise with myself a little. When the budget allows I will find some better looking storage. Buying super cute paper and embellishments is cheaper than shoes, and the dogs won't eat them. How is that for rationalization? LOL!
I also created a new watermark for all of my stuff that isn't using CHF. Kinda goofy and fun, I love it!
Well, I hope your Memorial Day celebrations are going well! It is rainy today and everything is green and beautiful, a perfect day to relax, create and spend time with my darling family. I have a card on the table I am working on for my dad as a thanks for serving in the Navy. Without the sacrifice of all our service people our country would be vastly different. I am very grateful for our liberties and the opportunity to pursue happiness, feel so blessed to be American!
