Craft room redo

So I found an internet connection in our house....and instead of spending some time catching up on things, checking e-mail and doing fun things I've been spendin the last three hours trying to find something appropriate to fix our super clutter problem in the craft room/ office.


We found two pieces from IKEA we liked, little did I know to ship to middle of nowhere outside colorado springs it would be $350...that was more than the furniture! ARE YOU KIDDING? Now I would just drive to the nearest friendly ikea and pick it up myself but that happens to be n Utah or I miss GA. I want my Ikea back!

Now my biggest issue is 1 the price, I don't want to spend over $300 for the total package.

2 I want something that is going to hold books, craft supplies (yarn, cross stitch, sewing and scrapbooking) while lookin nice and neat. Hidden but accessible.

3. I'm not sold on bookshelves with baskets/ boxes...hubby's idea.

4. I don't want plastic, we have plastic drawers they tend to buckle, look cluttered and un tidy.

5....I'm just too picky...

I've tried office max, joanns, hobby lobby, micheals, and the container store...

Any suggestions?

I need a queen of storage to pop up out of the wood work out there!

A day off-ish

I got off of work early today!! YAY! That’s exciting news for me after working from 8-5 everyday since vacation! Talk about overload…

I start a new position on Monday, I will move from the school aged kiddos to the preschoolers. I’m looking forward to the change but a little nervous too.

I still have a lot of stuff to update about the family reunion but I just don’t have the time anymore.

On the baby front things are going well, we’ve had another checkup that was pretty much pointless..haha They checked my blood pressure, heart rate and checked to make sure the baby’s heart was still going strong…I could have called that in :)

Our next appointment is mid September, by then we should know boy or girl :) super excited to find out. I have my guess but you never know…

For the nursery we’ve decided to go with this palate: Chocolate brown, a limey/minty/avocadoy green, kahki, and off white. Kinda like this:

And since people have asked some “bump” pictures:

SAM_050916 Weeks…still sick all the time

I accidentally erased the 12 week picture but take my word for it there was nothing there…


And the bean at 10 weeks.


I just like the fact you can see it’s little hand :) That makes me happy to know he/she at least has one haha!
