lots of things are making me stressed right now, but lots of things are making me really happy too!
the thing that is making me most happy right now is that i finally have a functional workspace!! i had a corner crammed with mismatched (i claimed it was cool, but others disagreed) and pretty useless furniture and after moaning about it online to liz a few days ago, she jumped in her car and drove here from phx to construct me a space worth calling a studio! her and mick were like a couple of little bandits in home depot, sourcing the goods to build a counter and shelves. all up - including a trip to ikea for the stool and some cool storage boxes, it cost less than $200! not bad eh?
(the view from my living room...kitchen on the right, studio on the left! front door straight ahead. its a small room, but it works!)
i love the way these little homemade albums and books look all jammed into a shelf. makes me very very happy to see!
and some new purchases from lucky 15 while in phx last week...they will have online shopping soon so i can't wait!
becky (who i am missing like crazy lately *sniff*) informed me just today that our favourite artist and scrapbooker of all time rebecca sower has a blog!! i am dying of happiness over that one. she is so amazing and inspirational and i cannot wait to get a daily fix!!
and finally...happiness right here - ivy 'allowed' me to do her hair! this is a rare privilidge...
hope you are happy this monday evening too!
