I think it's time I posted, LOL

Oh, its been a busy, wonderful summer. Kids are up later and it seems by the time everything is settled for the day I am too tired to play with my stuff. So how about if I post my room? Interested. It's a work in progress, for sure. But I have been so delighted to add a few pieces. I have a few more I am looking at, but all in good time. First I was so pleased to pick up this shelf over my computer area for 5 bucks at a garage sale. Here's my computer area....



Imagine my delight while shopping for goodies as a local thrift store when I found another one, only in better shape. Unfortunately it was a little more, but when I divided the cost for the both, it was more than reasonable. So now I have two, see...



I am really happy with both of them. Right now I am housing my Cornish Heritage Farms stamps (don't have a lot, so they fit nicely here). And anything I feel like decorating with.

My Close to My Heart stamps are stored in empty Garbage bag boxes covered in craft paper. I cut up old cardboard books from the library that I then covered in some wallpaper. I have added tabs to the top, but I haven't written on them yet. On my list of a thousand things to do list, LOL.

The boxes are stored on an old Ikea Roll top shelving unit. I LOVE THESE THINGS!!! Means I can close them up, and fake a neat and tidy room,LOL.




One of my added pieces of furniture has been a much needed table. We had purchase a folding table, but it clearly wasn't meant to have four little children, nor was could in handle alot of stamping and even weight. So I found a delightful old table at a local thrift store and payed 40.00 for it, including the four chairs. I like it alot. It means I have a little more width on this table, and it has two leafs that I can take out and make smaller (not that I will with how I work, all spread out,LOL) It's completely covered as we speak.


Check back soon, as I hope to post some more of my room

Sincerely,
Sonja

What a blessing to wait on the Lord and see your needs provided for by him. You have a beautiful room and were a good steward to boot!

{Can't wait to mess it all up with you next time I am in town!!!}

What a wonderful room!!!! My room looks nothing like that. Every time I go upstairs to clean up and organize, I end up stamping and making more of a mess......

sigh.......
