Staycation Wahoo!!!

Right off the bat, you need to know that Levi is sitting on the desk next to the keyboard, so I'm blaming any wonkiness on him.

I just talked to Sarah on the phone and told her about all of the fun I'm having during my week of week off of work staycation: rearranging the craft room and buying a cutting table; putting together bookshelves for my sleeping room; spray painting garage sale frames; going to movies at noon and taking a nap every day! She wanted to see evidence and accused me of always saying I'll take pictures then I never to. Here's proof she's wrong and I'm right!

The new cutting table on bed risers to be easier on my back . . . It's 36" x 36" with really cool extensions that make it 36" by 72". Erin keeps upping the amount she'd pay me for it, but I'm holding firm.

And from another angle . . .

We moved over the central desk to make room for the table . . .

Dang, it always looks so messy.

My old bookshelf, but I like the combo of frames, etc. and the hooters picture from the salt lake city indie craft fair. . .. .

The latest bookcases with painted frames . . . and the garage sale duvet cover and the kiwi kiss side tables . . . I simply adore Kiwi Kiss.

Bed and tables again

Frames again . . . and yes, I do know the books aren't stacked the usual way. I have so many books and buy so many from the library that I really need to pack them into the shelves.

One more for the frames.

Now Levi and I are going to costco to buy wheat tortillas (thanks for the heads up, Amy) to eat with the savory pork (thanks for the recipe, Joellyn) we made in the crock pot. Yum yum.

I love that you used my word wonkiness! Woohoo!!! You are getting so much done! It looks great. But we do miss you at work for sure! And we are working so hard at work!!!! Trying to hurry to make our deadline!

It's nice to be wrong when it means I get to see pictures of all the stuff you've been up to.
On my next post I want to take pics of stuff I've found recently and bargain brag. So how much was the table (if it wasn't a bargain you don't have to say!). Paul thinks we should have more pics up of the kids in the house and I agree. It would be fitting to do the frames similar to yours. Love your ideas...love you!
PS it's so great when you answer your phone!!!

I'm jealous of your staycation! I'm thinking I might have to try that. I agree, your frames are super cute.

I wish I had an ounce of your creativity.

Lori Sume said...

Great idea on the frames, have you been collecting them for long time?

Still up for the halloween project?

Hey, Paula! I'm loving the new header! And I'm loving all the amazing things you've done with your craft room and guest room! You are truly amazziing... Oh, and I'm blaming any wonkies on the fact that I'm typing while laying on my side :) I wonder what my WPM would be while lying on my side and typing... I'll have to try that later :) ~Renae
