Buster is just glad that we were not moving and his bed is back in place. All is right with the world.

Really excited to have all my paper within reach and out of the closet. Don't worry about the paint job. That will all be covered up with shelves and art. Will post when my corner is complete. Logan's corner is finished all but the hooking up of the old computer. My corner is going to get a matching shelf to the right of the window for paint and my paint brushes. Also another shelf above the paper for displaying art. Can you tell I'm so excited about this setup and can't wait to do some ART!

Here is a 360 of the new set up. Wish I could figure out how to put them in order.

Okay, I've had to face the fact that I am a very organized hoarder. Pulled the stuff out of the smallest room in the house and it filled the rest of the house. I have a whole lot of stuff.

John removed the corner shelves to the right of the window. He built a platform for under my rug. Kind of like a dock. We hauled that sucker into the house together. Put the rug down and started the redo. He re-used the brackets from the shelf that was not working and built a shelf level with the desk. Re built the desk. Then customized the desk for my Grandson. Building it into the desk and the printer shelf. By this time I am laying on the heating pad and wishing I had the energy to replace all the green drawers. He continued working and got the desk built the walls patched and painted both. I'm still laying down with the dog. Even the dog is exhausted snoring loud.

We began by pulling everything out down to the rug. Even had to remove the drawers of the green cabinet because the rug was under it. Oh my. No wonder he didn't want to do this.

Can't wait for Logan to see his new work area! I have been wanting to do this project for months, but it entailed tons of works. John promised as soon as we found out if we were staying he would do it. So we started on Saturday morning at 9am.

I got a henna tattoo on my finger Saturday. My grandson did not like it! He said no one wants to have a tattooed up Grandma! Out of the mouth of babes. :) I wish I would have done the whole hand.

Surprise stamps

I bought this box at Tuesday Morning a few weeks ago. I was looking for a box this size and all the bamboo did not fit. So. This was on sale so I picked it up. Getting home it fits my cubbyhole perfectly. As a added bonus it had these great images for stamping. They will not peal off the acrylic box but as you can see I got some great images with my stayson stamp pad.

Mr and Mrs Fishhead

I watched Paula's u-stream last night and worked on this page. Finished it off this morning with rub ons. They have been married for so long that they are starting to look alike.

peace of mind

I worked on this page the last few days. I've been losing my mind trying to set up a new computer. That is supposed to be a happy time. Right? Well it has been a nightmare! I'm not in the right frame of mind to be doing all that. Thank goodness for John. He helped me out tonight and got my printer and scanner working. Whew.

Love the colors on this page and all the layers. May not be done.
