Sunny Sunday

It may not be a sunny sunday where you are, but it is here and we are loving it! The boys played on the screened in porch with Legos. The birds are sang and you can tell Spring isn't too far away...which is good because the boys keep asking me when the pool is going to be open! They are a tad excited to swim I think ;)
(And speaking of excited..I might have a little happy news to share tomorrow ;))

And totally unrelated to any of the scrap room is clean, purged and pretty organized. YEA! There is still more work to do until it is exactly like I would want it, but the fact that I can safely walk without causing bodily injury is a huge PLUS ;) My friend Suz came over to scrap one night last week and I thought she might faint over the transformation :)
Although I don't have the whole enchilada ready to view *quite yet* I do have a few pics of the desk where I actually scrap. (I know to some people this is totally boring, but I have always loved seeing where people create!)

My desk is old. In fact, it isn't even a desk, but an old table that I bought several years ago at an auction. I was planning to sell it, but decided I could use it in the middle of my scrap room and love it there.
Notice how the boards are uneven. One has a crack that allows little brads and paper slivers to fall through to the drawer below. I don't mind.
It has one drawer, with a cool old white glass knob.
Inside I have various metal baskets--a few old, a few new--that house extra adhesive, scissors, sew easy tools and mat, epiphany button maker tool, cropodile and a jar of various brads.

On top of the desk sits an old basket. Here is where I keep my newest favorite ink by Jenni Bowlin (now if she would come out with an aqua/teal color and a gray I would be set!), Studio Calico stamps, and clear stamp blocks. I also have a milk glass container that holds a few pens, a pair of scissors, adhesive and tiny attacher...those things which I reach for over and over with each project and need within reach.

I picked up this old colander at a junk place for $2. It is the perfect place for any embellies I might be working with on a layout. I also put any new little goodie  I have came across that I am excited to play with.

It's just a happy little spot and my boys have loved coming down to craft too :)
I hope you had a wonderful sunday!
