My New Little Piece of Heaven

Welcome to my little corner of the Earth! This (<-- Click link) is what my stamp room looked like before last week. Some improvement, huh!?

The new island is my Christmas gift from my Hubby, and I'm in LOVE with it! We got the over sized butcher block, so that I can sit at it, and I love all of the work space! And the drawers! A stamper's heaven, I tell ya! :)

This is an existing bookcase that holds mostly SU stamps, plus stamps in CD cases, 8x8 and 6x6 PP packs, scrapbooks, and some odds and ends. The white boxes are ones that I painted from Michaels. They fit the CDs perfectly! I got that idea from my friend, Mimi.

This is a shot of the counter top behind my island. The candy jars are full of ribbon and Primas. And my dad asked me what in the world I was going to do with all of that ribbon! Ha! I scoff! Silly man.
Ah, I LOVE these bars from Ikea. No it's not a novel idea, but the drawer that these puppies were previously stored in was BEGGING us to put these up on the wall! LOL It was SO broke and U-shaped that it was pitiful.

Now, this little beauty is something that my Hubster built for me and my grown-up candy. I love it, and it holds so much ribbon - and there's even room for MORE! LOL

Now, this pic is not to show off the beauty of this set-up, but to show how I've got my paper/PP stored. It's purely functional, but it does a nice job. That box on the top is my other Christmas gift. It's a kareoke machine that's also a iPod charger, docking station, player, CD player, and radio. Love it too! :)

And finally, here's my throne. These 24in. chairs were also from Ikea. This is what this space pretty much always looks like - my iPod within easy reach, along with my Copics, acrylic blocks, sketch book, water, and tool caddy - or as I call them, my Necessaries. :) The quilt on the wall is a fish quilt that I made for Dave. I'll replace it with the one that I'm making now, when it's finished.
Well, that's about it. Hopefully you enjoyed the tour. Tonight I had Mimi over, and actually made a card! That is a big deal, if you knew of the day that I had...
Here's the gist - I bit the bullet and went to the Dr and had an x-ray on my toe. Good thing, too, cause it was far too injured to have healed with just taping it to the other toes! I have a spiral oblique break that was twisted and was nowhere near in correct alignment. It had to be set - which was an experience that I don't want to repeat anytime soon, and now I have to wear a gigantic knee-length boot for the next four weeks so that I can avoid having surgery on the stupid toe!!! And I won't even mention the bill... All for kicking a wall! Good grief, Charlie Brown!
So, anyways, I hope that your day was better than mine. Now I'm off to snuggle my Christmas Elf. Nighty night!
