I had a nice day with the family yesterday and  beautiful weather. After dinner we visited the cementery as a family to see the headstone and took flowers. The stone has been there but we wanted to go as a family the first time.

I spent most of the day working in the garage today. It is wonderfully warm and no wind so a perfect day to get things done. I'm going to eat leftovers from yesterday for dinner and chill in front of the tv for DWTS tonight.

Here are the pictures of my craft room. It's still not quite like I want it but I'm pretty happy. This is as you come into the room on the right. The closet is behind the door as you come in. There is a cabinet with reinkers, alcohol inks, washi tape. glitter and embossing powders that I've put into containers.. Next to that is my cart that holds the Big Kick and paper trimmer. The drawers have plates and SU framelets. My clear stamps are in the large white basket, Lawn Fawn in the blue tub and dies are in the small white basket. Scrapbooks are tucked in both sides on the floor. The door on the left has the SU stamps I use all the time and the door on the right is empty right now.


Looking straight ahead is my table with ink pads and Copics along with a turntable thing with tools. My SU stamps are in the racks from Target and a plastic drawer unit holds DeNami  stamps, special papers, stencils and paste, Inka Gold and just two drawers of stuff. Left of the table is a drawer unit with embossing powders in their canisters, and flock and embossing glitter. It also holds watercolor paints, gelatos, color pencils, zig watercolor pens, sequins and Brushos and Ken Oliver powders. The top of the unit has Distress Inks and markers and embossing folders.  The little brown paper sack under my desk is my trash can! It sits on top of my scrap paper. Not a perfect set up but it works for me.

To the left of the room is the computer station with bill paying stuff and some inks on the top. My printer is on the right because the cord is so short it had to be right there. It is sort of crowded in but threre isn't anywhere else it fits. The plastic cd cases have my PTI stamps in them above the little basket on the right side. 

Then to the left as you come in is the famous new loveseat. You can see who has taken that over. So 
that is it. Very compact and clean. Molly is very bored already with the new setup!  Be kind to one another.

  3. You have been one busy bee with your organizing, and looks like you have things arranged so nicely to just fit what you need things to be. I'm envious of the tidiness. Love that you have a space to relax with Molly too. On the printer: You can get an extension (probably at Staples) that will allow you to move your printer further away. I have that in the computer room. But if it works where it is, cool. I'm glad you got to visit Bill as a family, and that things were as you had wanted for him. Big hugs, and glad you're getting some nicer weather. TFS

  5. YAY!!!!! Thank you for sharing the finished room, Brenda! Gosh, you much feel like a million bucks to have that done! You did a wonderful job with the organization! Molly, of course, STOLE the show!! I laughed out loud at that photo of her turning her back on us, bored with the whole thing! What a love she is on her "blankie!" I would want to just lie down next to her and nap for hours!! And I'm so glad that you are finally getting some beautiful weather and you all had a chance to go visit Bill together. Love and hugs, Darnell

  6. I think that was wonderful that you all visited the cemetery as a family Brenda. I go out a good bit myself to Dwayne's. We haven't went as a family though. Doing that on his death anniversary. We are letting the grands send up messages to Papaw in heaven in balloons. Cadence wanted to do that, so thought it would be a perfect time for them all to do it. Your room looks so organized my friend. I so need to do this and keep telling myself I'm going to get started on it, but then don't. Just having a hard time going back there for some reason. I love that white cabinet you have. Your love seat looks great too, looks like Molly thinks so too. She is looking so sweet in that picture. Pockets doesn't like laying on the leather, but if a blanket is left on the sofa, then she will get up there and lay. lol Spoiled pup! I love the new organized space my friend, it must be so nice creating in there! Glad to hear that you are having beautiful weather my friend. Hugs, Brenda
