Today I did a little mini-makeover in my stamp room. The main thing I have always wanted was a higher desk, one that I could stand at or lean onto. Sometimes I just found that sitting at a lower desk, my back was always hunched over and causing me pain come the end of the day. I refuse to admit I'm getting old, so, let's blame it ENTIRELY on the desk.
Mr. Super Stamp (no) Girl had this old workbench in our basement, that was quite ugly in fact, but more importantly, RIDICULOUSLY heavy, which is probably why I never wanted to move it before, even knowing it probably would have been the perfect height. I looked online and thought of purchasing a new desk, but, the thought of spending a few hundred dollars just didn't seem so fun, or frugal. So, I finally relented and we moved that monstrous workdesk into my craftroom and IT's PERFECT! Hallelujah! (I'm still singing and doing my little happy dance). Sure, it's still kinda, sorta, a whole lotta ugly, but my back is forever grateful! And, one old desk became a second stamping space for when I have friends or my mom over! So, that was a happy bonus that I didn't plan for!
But, of course, when you move one thing, you wind up moving a gazillion others. . . So, the punches were organized, cards were sorted through, paper was (gasp) thrown out, stamps were put up for sale (my stamp campers will LOVE that), the vinyl tree and butterflies on the wall came down for a more "streamlined" look. And, oh yes, a honey-do list was made to put up another pegboard on the wall. . .
But the cost of my mini makeover. . . A BIG FAT WHOPPING Z-E-R-O. Love it!
So, check out a few pictures of my "new" craft room!!
And, Saturday was also a make-up stamp camp for this past week, so here are the 5 beautiful cards we made in case Wednesday's snowstorm (that wasn't actually a snowstorm) kept you from coming to join!
Please note any card that is not watermarked with Super Stamp Girl was not an entirely original idea. Some cards have been the inspiration for my stamp camp cards and I would never take credit for those designs. I will always give credit where credit is due. **Special Note: This last card was CASED from the very talented Mary Fish of Stampin Pretty, please stop by her blog and check out her talent for yourself. I'm sorry the picture came out a tad blurry. Honestly, I was too tired (aka lazy) to reshoot!
Thanks for stopping by and have a S-U-P-E-R day!
