My teeny tiny creative space is literally our entry way into our apartment. Not enough space to have large table or anything but I do have a nice space friendly desk where the top flips down. Below is the photo from the catalog, mine is a wreck right now.
Tonight I am going to finish cleaning off the top of the desk which is currently the "leaning tower of craft supplies". I am going to sort through my scrapbook papers, yarn, fabric, notions and embroidery stuff and put it all in the green boxes (which are currently empty) and label them.
When I am done cleaning all of that out, I am going to rearrange my bulletin board. It is getting a little chaotic, which I like sometimes, but I think it could look better and actually be of use to me. I am thinking of pinning up some fabrics I am using for holiday gifts, etc. It needs help!
Anyway, phase one of the project is over, now I just have to clean stuff out and organize, which is fun. I am sure there are some items in my desk and in the boxes on top that I have not seen in a long time so it should be cool. I have a donation bag started as well and will drop it off at the preschool at the community center when I am done, I am sure there are things I have that they could use. Here is a little drawing (not to scale at all) I made of how small this space really is...it is small but sweet and my little teeny tiny room in the house to call my own. I think it would be nice to have an extra room just for a washer/dryer and my crafts. A gals gotta have a dream right

The best thing about getting an order from Repro Depot is the packaging. They take such care in putting everything in plastic zip lock bags (which I will reuse over and over again). The fabric was all packaged together, my notions were in a separate bag inside of the fabric bag and my ribbon was in it's own little bag as well. What a great job they do, you can tell they care about the product they are selling and about the customer that they are shipping to. Thanks Repro Depot! Now I am even more excited than I was before to jump on my Christmas gift making. The one thing missing from my flat is a washer dryer so I can get everything washed and ready to go - pooh. Oh well, just like new dishes, I don't mind washing new fabric and pressing it when I am done. My Mom and I have this in common. I actually had to call her in Michigan when I got my box and tell her how hard it is to sit here at my desk knowing it is under there calling me. I wonder how long I am going to wait to make the first cut into it? That is tough sometimes. There is something very satisfying to me about having a large piece of clean, pressed, uncut fabric. The options are endless and I just want to make sure I make the right decision before cutting it. You know? Anyway, back to my lunch break. I just ate the largest peach ever born. You can see it at Magpie and Mocking Bird.
I do have a project lined up for tonight. I am going to (God wiling) install some shelves in my entry way which doubles as my little teeny tiny craft space. I will try to post before and after photos when it is all done. I am going to need to go to Ikea tomorrow to get a couple more storage boxes I am sure of that! Wish me luck!

This waiting is nothing compared to what it is going to be like when we get the photo of our baby. I have to keep reminding myself of that.
I have been looking for a part time job and have an interview on Sunday. I don't want to curse it because it sounds like a really cool gig - I will update you all when the interview is over. Just wish me luck!

We are here at the Beach House in Carmet, CA - north of Bodega Bay, CA.
Just had a wonderful dinner of fish tacos, rice, beans and all the fixins.
Anyway, time to go and have some more fun!
More tomorrow, maybe...
I don't want to give away too much.

I tried out something new yesterday, I shopped Safeway online and if you are first time shopper, you don't have to pay the delivery charge so I did it. I am being careful with my back, so I figured I mind as well have someone bring my groceries to me this time since it was free and that gives me more time with my sister tonight! I will let you all know how it works out. I used to do webvan.com when they were around and it was great especially around holiday baking time.
Wendy and I are going to get pedicures on our lunch hour, so I have to fly.
