Office Remodel

We remodeled the office this summer and it took a little longer than planned. Guess when you do some of the work yourself that will happen. Turned out fabulous though and we are super happy. I won't share a lot of pictures and I did take a lot, oh my goodness. 
The room had carpet before and some store bought bookshelves and a desk my husband and father in law made. We removed the carpet and put in engineered hardwood floors doing the work ourselves. Then we had a professional desk and bookcase combo installed. The room is roughly a 11 X 12 in size so it is a larger room that fits both our offices comfortably. Here is the photo of the finished room without anything in the shelves. The chairs roll so nice on the flooring too which we like. hee hee

We have french doors that are regular doors on the office right now. My plan is to get window pained doors so that more natural light comes into the room from the dining room and hallway later. You can see part of the nook to the left has a double matching bookcase that holds all my stamps in the bins. It is behind the door so you can't see it. Might have to figure out how to make it look better with window pain doors. This side shows John and his stand up desk he has, should of lowered it for the picture.

This is my side with the longer desk for my crafting. The drawers are so deep and hold so much of my crafting stuff its awesome. I like the added cubbies we put on both sides also. We did have to pair down our books quite a bit which was harder to do than I thought it was going to be. However we like how it looks and feels. 

This was a lot of time and energy waiting to get complete. But it turned out just how we wanted so it was worth the wait. Now to get some crafting time in is what I need. haha!  Have a wonderful day!

A few months of Christmas

Morning everyone. It has been a few months I know and for good reason. We remodeled the office which took a few months longer than planned. Turned out beautiful though and I will share a few pictures tomorrow. Today is the Dirty Dozen Christmas challenge cards I missed while this was going on. Only got a few done and posted to SCS at the time. 

This is for the June Challenge 

 This is using a Whipper Snapper guy for my creation. He is colored with Copic markers. I added a snowflake embossing texture to the green panel. Some designer paper from the pile and a few layers of colored card stock. Added a snowflake layered die and enamel dots and sparkles to finish it off. Voila!

This is for August Challenge

This is using Berry Sweet Holiday that is colored with various Copic markers. I added some suduko gel pen as you can see and some pearls for accents. Simple and sweet.

I used Plain and Fancy for my creation today and some designer paper from the stash I have sitting here forever. Added a little bit of sparkle to the wreath once colored. Looking back I think I should of added some texture to the green panel. Oh well next time.

Quite behind in cards this year but I am going to try and make up for it soon. We will see how it goes. Thanks for stopping by.
