Sorry I haven't been around at all this week, but the invitations are due the beginning of June, so it has been crunch time for me. :O)
Luckly I do have a three day weekend, so you would think that I would have spent all day yesterday working on them. Wrong! lol... I took one look at my desk/corner and knew I just could not in all good conscious work on them a minute longer without doing some cleaning,
Well we all know that when you clean your craft room/desk or whatever you use that it isn't a small undertaking. I wish now that I had been brave enough to take before pictures to share. I didn't, so too bad, lol... Suffice it to say it was a wreck of colossal proportions and it really needed an upgrade.
I ran to Walmart and bought some contact paper and redid the entire top of my desk (after a ton of scrubbing to get the fact top off) and moved a ton of things around. I then had Jerry help me put a back to my white block section so that I could put it in the Bermuda triangle of corners so that I could use it and no longer have everything fall down behind and under my desk. I also used a few things I had out in our garage to make (what I just love) my new Washi tape wrack with. Isn't cute? Yes, those are new hairbands holding up the rods. heehe (Use what you got, right?)
I don't know about you guys, but as I use my desk/corner as both my craft table and my make up table in the mornings I forget that I don't have a whole room to spread out in, so I tend to buy things (that always get returned) or want things that would just be too much for my small corner of the craft world. So instead I try to adapt something that will work for me and make me happy at the same time.
I just love how it all turned out and I think it was so worth the 7 hours it took me, :O) and I really just wanted to share it with you all.
So, if you've hung in this long I really appreciate it and I hope that soon I will be back to visiting you all again. Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
Hugs, Lisa G
