A promise is a promise...

Hi Guys. So I made a promise in a previous post that I'd put up pictures of my office today, no matter how it looked. And while I did make a lot of progress over the past week, it's not even close to being finished... As you can see from the pics I'm about to post:

This is where I spent most of my time. I did a lot of organizing, and I put up the cork boards. I'm sure I'll end up moving stuff around once I get everything unpacked, but I'm loving the writing desk I found at a local Goodwill store!  Okay, the rest of the pics are awful, so brace yourselves...

I see those gray lines are back. Boo! Oh well, this is going to be my craft table. Right now it's covered and surrounded by piles of different things... CD cases, papers, art supplies, and things I still need to go through.

This area will be the book shelves and computer desk. I think I've gotten most of my books unpacked, but I'd like to have them more organized than they currently are. And again, there are piles everywhere that I still need to go through.

And this monstrosity is the closet area. A couple of those bins are ready to be put in the attic, and one is filled with things for a garage sale, but the majority still need to be gone through.  So as you can see, I still have a ways to go to get my office ready. I know it probably doesn't look like it, but I did get a big chunk done. And I threw out about 4 bags of trash/ things I didn't need, so that's a step in the right direction. But hopefully I'll keep my momentum going and get it finished soon. : )  I'll be sure and post more pics when I do.

Hope you all have a great week!



  1. This definitely looks like my creative space :) I do like your desk in the first photo. It reminds me of the old time writing desks I love.

  2. You can do it!! It's always so great to start cleaning up and when I do and I start seeing the mess I start losing momentum, but it's always great to finish!!

    Love your corner of creativity!

    P.S. I awarded you an award on my blog!


  3. OMGoodness April, it is going to be so beautiful and organized when all is complete. I LUV that you hung the collages I sent you :)

    Hope you have a wonderful and relaxing end of weekend!!
