Last day!

Today is the last day of school! That means it is the last day of peace and quiet for me for the summer. One part of me is sad about that – but a big part of me is glad to be done for the year – and we are so looking forward to a schedule-free summer! I made the last peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the year yesterday. YES! Geez I get tired of that.

I finished quilling my picture and will show you next week – I got a frame yesterday and I still need to paint it white. But I did want to show you the table I got last fall. It was sitting on the side of the road. Free! Does this count as dumpster diving?

It’s in my craft area in the basement. It has a leaf so it could be longer, but it needs just a bit of repair work before I use it. Isn’t it pretty?! It’s oak. This will be the perfect fabric cutting table/scrapbooking table!! The plumbing you see under the table is where I could have a sink…and wanted a sink…but since there is a bathroom 10 feet away I decided this would be a better use for the space.

This is what I’ve been using to hold my works-in-progress. I got together everything needed for the quilling project and keep it on this cart. When I’m not using it I wheel it into my office. This is working really well. When the quilling-fever has died down I’ll empty it and fill it with the next project. I got this cart and several others at the dump. I think I need to spray-paint it to jazz it up – and suggestions on colors? Light blue? I dunno…

This is the “junk drawer” in my office. Since there are no drawers I’ve been repurposing jars that once held candles. I like it!

Also, thank you to everyone who has commented on my posts and/or given me an award lately…I haven’t forgotten…and will post on that. I’ve been such a bad blogger lately…at one time I just couldn’t get enough of the craft blogs and lately I can’t seem to concentrate on the computer…I dunno…

Well, have a great weekend and Happy Crafting!

You having a basement makes me jealous. All that space. Oh well, I'll just there and help you mess it up with a project or two. Take care and I'll talk to you tomorrow.

Oh by the way, I LOVE, LOVE that table. So great for all your projects. Your shelf, it turned out beautifully. Great job Kim, keep it up.
