Good morning. :)
Isn't this bag beautiful? I ordered it from Abby on Etsy earlier this summer and have been using it as a book bag. I've been carrying around a few magazines, notepad, and pencil so I can write down project ideas or just have something to read when I'm out.
I needed a little more space in my scrapbooking/crafting room, so I added 3 small chrome shelves in front of the window. I also moved my desk to the middle of the room. I absolutely love it. It gives me a lot more white space on the shelves and on my desk. I have a laptop computer, so that moves around wherever I need it. I've always loved the look of metal or chrome with vintage style. (Edit: The desk is from the office collection at Pier One. It has 3 deep drawers in front of the seating side. I keep my adhesives and cutting tools in them.) I also added some dark brown sailcloth curtains to the windows. (If you click the photo you can see a larger view.)
I also started keeping a 3-tier rolling cart in the closet. On the cart I have baskets that contain current projects (canvases, my Inspired 2009 project, class kits I'm developing, etc.) Whenever I want to work on these, I can roll the cart out next to my desk. All of the supplies for each project stay together on the cart and I can just roll it back into the closet when I'm finished working.
Good things - Dove Grapefruit/Lemongrass body wash, the reopening of One Hundred Wishes on Friday afternoon, and Heather Bailey's square pincushions tutorial. :)
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
