who needs a dining room...

...when you never cook anyway!

welcome to my new favorite place at home....dining area turned craft/art space! it's a little slice of heaven for me, and i owe it all to my darling and generous husband, who surprised me while we were at ikea yesterday and bought me a new, and may i just say....GIGANTIC, table for my space.on the other wall is my answer to the clip-it-up, aka pegboard and hangers. it works like a charm, and holds all of the thickers, rub-ons, and embellishments you could dream of! :)previously, i had been using an itty bitty little computer desk, which was fine...but nothing like THIS! i have room for my computer now, there is plenty of work space, and everything i use frequently is right where i can get it. kirk put the table together yesterday, and i spent last night and today cleaning, purging, and getting things back in order. i LOVE it!

the table is the melltorp, in the dining table section of ikea. a steal at $69, it is a whopping 70" long, and a very nice depth of 30". it is solid as a rock, easy to clean, it's perfect. and the fact that kirk surprised me with it makes it all the more special.

yeah, he's a keeper all right. :)

prior to re-organizing my space, i made this little card for my aunt's birthday, i think it turned out pretty cute.after last week i can only hope that tomorrow brings a fresh perspective. there is a spot of good news before we even get started: we get tuesday off for cesar chavez day! woo hoo!

i hope we all have a great week!
