NEW CREATION STATION

Since I am unable to "do" stairs, I had my sons move my craft stuff from the lower level of my townhome to the first floor second bedroom/office (which it used to be).  They also bought me a new desk and chair and put a ceiling fan/light in the room as the window faces west and can get really warm in the afternoon.  Got rid of a futon, file cabinet, lots of books, etc. to accommodate the new desk and chair.  A friend came over the other day and helped me organize as Kevin and Mike just brought stuff upstairs while I was still in rehab - so I didn't know where anything was.  What a joy it is to have everything where I can find it and to have such great family and a friend to help.  Here are some pics of the new room!







Top left is an antique oak file cabinet that holds a multitude of supplies.  Next to it is an old oak library table and another wood table where I keep my clear stamps, embossing folders, and stencils organized in wooden boxes (Target) and vintage filing and sewing machine drawers.  Bottom left is my new desk and chair.  Last is another view of the desk with the bookcase where I keep more supplies.  It will probably be tweaked a bit more as time goes by, but right now it works for me.  The desk has a pull out space where a keyboard is supposed to be, but I have a small paper cutter, my MISTI, and a small score board stored on it.  So handy. There is also a deep filing drawer where I keep all my cardstock.  The desk came from Office Depot (RealSpace).  

All for now.
