More Peeks at Craft Room & Finds

I went 20 days without any sweets, chocolate, desserts and yesterday gave into THESE!! I am so weak! Back on the "wagon" tomorrow.

Sweet hubby put up this shelf for me :) I already had the brackets. Bought the wood shelf and painted it. Cost 12.00 Total cost so far, $30.00 I think! Doing great with my budget...not so great about getting the room in order. I get so distracted with myself. Starting working on more Valentine cards...



Put up some of my stamps. Had this white stamp shelf, was larger and sweet hubby cut in in half and it works perfect in this stop. He is so good to me!





I've also been very GOOD about not "treasure hunting"... however, found these at Auntie M's yesterday when I was stocking the booth. Only $3.50 for them :)





Stopped at How Quaint on Friday on my way to the Vintage Cottage to "work" and bought these 2 books. Paid 9.00 for both. Can't wait to look for ideas.
This weeks goals: more stuff to thrift store!!! Must Let GO!!! Hubby said that I'm just moving my "stuff" around the house. So there is More Stuff All Over...he is kind of right. LOL!!!

Nothing too exciting around here...so it's time to catch up in blog land!

Warmly,

deb :)

You are stronger than I, Deb. A day without chocolate/sweets is impossible. Love your shelf & decor.

My darling husband calls it left to right. When you just move things from one side to the other. God bless him for living with it...Looking great! Smiles...Renee

Ohhh, it's so difficult to let go, isn't it?!?! The drapes turned out great!!!!

It's okay to indulge yourself. The key is not making it a habit :)

I've been eating too much chocolate! I've got a growing pile for the thrift shop and I'm proud of myself for getting rid of some stuff.

Debbie, the drapes look fabulous!! i have though of putting a shelf over my window, what a great place for storage! Now, quit moving it around and get it to the thrift!! I think you're doing great with your stamps and bulletin board!

Wish I could go without chocolate! Kudos to you for being able to resist so long! I have to have a small bit of chocolate at least once a day! Love your shelf and the placement over the window. And your shelf for your stamps is wonderful!

Deb said...

I love the curtains and I like shelves over windows. Had them in my previous house and will probably have some here too!

Deb, we are so much alike with our stuff. I know it will take me longer than have in hours left to make everything I want to with my treasured items....But I love having it. Your workroom is going to look great.

Deb, Love the stamp shelf! Your craft room looks like everyone who crafts! I still don't have mine organized the way I want it. Move things around from one place to another!

You're my hero, Deb! I also need to let go of stuff, but I'm having a hard time. And I can't stay away from the sweets! Can't wait to see all of the goodies that go on your new shelf!

Deb,
Your room is really coming along...:) I have my Valentine swap stuff already mailed, but I am having a lunch that day and have to get ready for it....too fun!

20 days!? You are not weak...you are strong! 20 days is an accomplishment in itself. Plus, you deserve a treat for all the work you are putting into your organizing task!
love

Deb -- where is your shop? I have a dear friend who's moved to the cities and I'd love to send her to see you.
