It's official - the shelves are hung and the product has been moved...I have a new craft space!!! I bought the few remaining baskets last night at Wal-mart if you can believe it - they had cute ones for $3 to $7 that fit my needs perfectly...I actually bought 4 too many but I can always return them. Hubby installed a new fan with better lighting though two of the bulbs that came with the fan were already burnt out so I'm not working with much light - hence, no pics. I managed to get the majority of what I need moved into the new space however all my kits, scraps, magazines and such will have to stay in the closet. The next desk I get will hopefully be more accommodating with respect to those things. There is still much for sure want to more shelves to balance the wall, bit of re-arranging to do, finishing touches, curtain to hang, cornice board to make, pics to print before it is complete but lucky me - Mom is coming to stay with me for a few weeks before heading back to Mockba. I'll take all the advice she has to offer.

Since I have no pics to show I leave you with our Olympic Brick in the Salt Lake City Gateway Plaza- in honour of my new guilty pleasure - Big Love...I hate to admit that I like to watch that show but since I lived there and saw it first hand I can't help it!!

Here I am...

I've gotten away from posting on my yahoo group or any other group for that matter so I thought I'd try a blog instead.

This week I've been busy moving out of my crafting closet:

and into what used to be our tv room upstairs. Here's hoping hubby will hang my IKEA Lack shelves tonight so I can make it official. It's been quite an undertaking but very worthwhile - not just for the obvious benefit of having a space for all my projects but it has forced me to clean out and condense files since the file cabinet is no more - my mom will be happy. She always said I should hide it in a closet but I barely did my filing as it was - shoving it in a closet would only delay the process. Now I have cute baskets that hold them and I scored them at Michael's for 50% off thanks to Karen C. So in short my move has many benefits - I won't go into them all but let's just say I'm a happy girl!!
With any luck (a term I use for lack of a better word) I will be posting pictures of my new space tomorrow.
