What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday


 

Hi!!! *waves frantically*

This wasn't the first post I had intended to share with you, but I have to get into some kind of routine before my poor little OCD brain explodes!!!! I've missed my internet (it just got hooked up yesterday!) and all of my friends and family across the globe! I have so much to share with you....and tons of photos and videos too! We're supposed to keep these posts short and sweet...and if you can believe it, I've really cut a lot out of this one, lol! So...my desk....

So here is my room after the movers left.
Boxes. TONS of heavy boxes. Everywhere.

When I finally made it to this room, I had to first just unpack all the boxes. That took a whole day in itself!! I also found some "missing" items here, such as my comforter, the canvas shell for the portable closet and a large kitchen mixing bowl. NONE of those items were in or near my stamping room in Italy. Weird.

Fast forward through a ton of work, and photos to prove it!, we have the final product! All I have left to do is hang up the decorations and curtains!!! This is my bestest and most favorite Stamping Studio yet!!!

My desk!
It did get terribly damaged in this move, but I'm still able to use it.

A place for everything and everything in it's place.....Ahhhhhhh! An organized Jeannie is a happy Jeannie indeed!!!! My most recent Stampin' Up order arrived yesterday, so I will have a lovely time playing with them today! Thank you for taking the time to stop by and hopefully leaving a comment!!!! I have so many more things to share with you all and it's going to be a very photo-heavy, post-heavy blog around here for a bit. It's going to be a blast!!!

If you'd like to play along, just click on the button at the top of this post!

I have to say I had a little breath holding moment when I saw all your boxes. Your unpacking looks phenomenal. Keep smiling and creating in your new space. Thanks for popping by.

Jeannie your shelves are absolutely divine! After the moving pictures, when it got down to your beautiful, organized shelves, I could hear the angels singing! I hope all goes well as you settle in. Crafty hugs! --Sandy Leigh

You certainly do have the set-up over there, but what a bummer that your desk was injured en route.

Wowsers, that was some job getting all that sorted! I bet you are a happy little Queen Stamper in there now. Looking forward to seeing it with the decor up to. #79

Neesie said...

As I see all those packing boxes I break out in a cold sweat. Having been an expat on the move for 23 years I know what hard work and effort you've had to put in to make a new home!
Well done on a great job...I've just seen the updated photos.
Have a good time enjoying that space...I'm sure you will ;D
Happy WOYWW

ChicagoLady said...

Nice job! That was a lot of boxes! I'm sure the packers ran out of room and went searching for a box to fit an item, they just happened to be your stamping boxes, lol.

Love the light from the window.

Why wouldn't you have the moving company replace the storage cabinet, if it was that damaged in the move?

Tertia said...

That is a whole lot of boxes! You and me both in brand new work spaces! It is so rewarding after the hard work to just sit there and admire it all isn't it? It looks lovely and I am sure you are going to have many hours pf happy crafting in there.
Happy belated WOYWW!

Jeannie, thanks for sharing your move with us. What a marathon! You'll soon be settled. Love all your cupboards etc. Great stuff!

Thanks for your good wishes with my parents - Dad is now in hospital - sad to see him so frail looking, but it's the best place for him. Got to look after Mum a bit now!

Happy belated WOYWW,

Oh WOW - you have one of those cupboards that open and close and store everything! Envious looks coming across the water.
Have read your bio and guess you are used to packing and unpacking - good luck in your new quarters hope that it is somewhere nice and you don't miss Italy (a country I love to holiday in) too much.
Wishing you much happiness - thanks for sharing - Hugs, Neet #58 xx
