I feel like a grown-up


I’m not a dining-room girl, nor am I a living-room girl……I’m a Home-Office girl.  I feel so grown up in here.  I’ve waited a long time for this and now I have it.  It’s nice cuz it’s right in the hub of everything.  I can even watch a slight sliver of TV from the next room too.  It works while I’m cooking (or pretending to) cuz I can jump up to the sound of the kitchen timer and take care of business there.  I just feel so darn lucky. 


I love this IKEA chair.  It matches my teak wood and it was really easy to cover the chair bottom and make the white apron on the top portion.   I really should do the other 5 chairs this way.  The plan is, to do each chair with a different animal.  I like the red and green look, so I’ll keep that color scheme.


Oh….and to keep me grounded my DH (dear husband), displays this for me to see each day! Too funny!


I’m a container person too!  And I have a thing for shelves.  Haha


You always have to have a chair in the study, afterall…..where will the guests sit?


I’m a slacker, I mean stacker!  I really should call an organizational coach in, and she could straighten me out.


This printer has got to be 8 years old.  It’s the best!  An Hp product that scans, prints and copies.  I’ve thought about getting a bigger scanner, but geez… can I justify it if this one has been so darn loyal?


You can never have too many drawers!!  Gotta love those plastic 6 drawer carts!!  I sure do!


Since I have to reference images on the computer a lot while drawing, this extension to the side of the monitor works great.


What really makes it feel like home is, I’m surrounded not only by my favorite people (in pictures), but I have a place to display my sketches.  Just these little things that mean so much.


They say all good things come to those that wait.

I LOVE it! It looks really cozy (in a good way) but roomy, too. And the light looks lovely!

This is a fun little peek inside your world. I like seeing your drawings displayed along the top of your shelves.

I'm a container person, too. You can't ever have too many places to put things!

About Me

My photo
By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser! And if you're really curious there's a 3 part Interview by Eileen: HERE All the best, Eden
