So I’ve gotten a few new toys of late – and just didn’t have any place to put them!  I finally managed to convince Matthew that the computer needed to be relocated to a new room – woohoo!  So now the entire *study* is officially mine!

Here is how it used to look on that side of the room:

And now it looks like this!

Sweet, huh?  I finally got my sewing machine out!  It’s been in a box since I got it back in April (a birthday present)!  I am thrilled to have it out and useable….now for those lessons – Oh Jenn!!!    And next to it is my Cricut Expressions!  I picked up some of the black vinyl for the walls the other day and I play to do some words to put around the room – you know – some inspirational ones or something.  I am so excited to have space for these and now that they are out, I am sure I’ll use them more!

It’s still a little rough in there – but it’s coming along nicely!  However, that’s why I haven’t been up to much crafting lately – it’s been in upheaval for a while.  I am really looking forward to sewing on cards though – I’ve been dying to do that for years, lol!

And did you notice the special thing in that photo?  Here’s a better shot:

 Lookee what I found at Target in the $1 spot!  Yep, mailboxes!  In NEW colors!  They had some of the solid white, red and pink – but they had new metal ones and metallic pink ones (with a Strawberry Shortcake tag?)!  So you might want to check your Targets if you want some for this year!  I got mine the day after Christmas here – and yes, I left some at the Mansfield Target – I promise I did not buy them all!

Now I am off to prepare for the boys’ NYE sleepover – 6 boys age 8 and under – SERENITY NOW!
