my crap, i mean scrap room.

The post title is dedicated to Tony. ;-) He keeps on joking that my new office/craft/scrap room is going to be called my "crap" room. He even promised to get me a sign for the door. lol

So here it is. My own four walls that will, actually already starting to, contain my office. Or to my crafty buds, "my craft/scrap room". Crafting has taken a back burner. I hope to move it to the front burner very soon. :-) I know having my own space to decorate and do what I want with (within reason, of course) will get those creative juices flowing again. Even though I haven't scrapped in a long time, I do make cards every now and then, and I've also taken up playing with water colors.

I wish I would've gotten a shot of the closet as well. It has lots of shelves, conducive to storing a lot of craft supplies. lol Those craft supplies will be used.

I love my space. Loads of natural light as it's west facing and has two large windows, bamboo flooring, and as I mentioned a pretty kick-ass closet for storage. I was also gifted a piece of furniture for the room... A library card catalog! Yippee. It should arrive at the end of next week or so. I can't wait to get started. I will be emailing you all for some decorating ideas. Pam mentioned the color scheme at the Paper Source at South Coast Plaza. Anyone else have a color scheme they like, or some decorating ideas you like? All ideas are appreciated!

That's how I feel. I really do.

Life has had a few twists and turns; however, I've come out relatively unscathed. A better person for it too. At least I think so. :-)

Sometimes I step back and can't help but smile. Life is good.

I. Am. Happy.

To top it off... We're buying a house (in La Mirada)! I've been sitting on this for a while, not wanting to post anything just in case it fell out of escrow. So far so good. We close this Friday, July 10th. We should have the keys by July13th. Very excited. Hoping sometime soon after everything has settled down, I can host a scrap/craft gathering. Which equates to a catch up session with margaritas. :-) Who's game?
