Ikea trip!

Pardon the background mess but I had to share 2 of my 3 ikea finds!

Let's get the kinda boring one out of the way first.....This is Alex:
Its functional, not the prettiest (a bit plain for my taste) but that is something I plan on fixing down the road...So this little fella is holding a ton of stuff which is giving me more room on my desk and that makes me a happy girl. Its also holding my drawing supplies that my Hubby got me this past Christmas, see those canvases? He got me those too, talk about intimidating...I'm barely learning to draw and paint and he got me those giant things but he said he knows I have the talent in me tackle them. I love that he has such faith in my talent when even I don't.

Anyway lets keep this rolling right along. Here was the piece I just fell in love with....meet Raskog!

This thing is my favorite color, its easy to organize and keep the things I use most at my fingertips.
Top tier holds my inks, glitter mists, stamp cleaners. Second tier hold all my fun cling stamps, all of my liquid pearls are now in the little side caddy and the bottom is a bit of a catch all at the moment.

Once the rest of this loft gets squared away then I can put up my new Expedit and get started on my Thanksgiving help.

Thanks for checking in,

Workin' my way back!

I hope some of you are still with me....
This year has brought some changes and a few almost changes with it. The biggest almost change was that we almost moved to Idaho so we did quite a bit of remodeling on the house but alas it is not meant to be just yet. So after we packed half the house and were on the market for a couple of months we decided to stay for a little while longer...maybe till next summer, we shall see but now I am in the middle of unpacking it all again!!!!
We painted the kitchen but the counters were still in too good of shape to scrap just yet.

I have done quite a bit of purging in the process and boy that felt good, the creativity is starting to bubble up again, oh how I've missed that feeling.
I'll do another blog post soon to show some additions I've made last week to help get my scrappy goodness under control, a little hint...I went to IKEA! I just need to do a little more organizing to make it look presentable, sadly my hubby has yet to finish the lower part of my desk, maybe next year :)

Talk soon,
