cool online class

my wickedly talented friend, paula gilarde (hof 2007) will be teaching an online digital scrapbooking class at nyc scraps starting monday, november 29th. paula is super sweet and i'm sure you will learn a ton about digi scrapping. i'm excited to take the class. it's really reasonably priced - a two week class with a lesson every two days and a digital kit is included as well - all for only $20. if you don't have photoshop a free 30-day trial version is available - so that isn't an excuse. if you are interested you can find the class at nyc scraps. and tell paula i said hi!

my updated studio

ok i'm going to share, but remember it's still a work in progress. sorry for the grainy photos. the walls will be behr watermelon pink and the trim will be all white one day. i still need to paint my printer cart, the little red table, and my ikea fira black. i need to buy a curtain and i want to update the ugly particle board bookshelf to a white one. so without further ado, i present my studio.

view from the doorway

my desk - new vika table tops and cabinets

my sewing station - new ikea helmer unti holds sewing supplies and other odds and ends - that's my scraps bin next to it - sorted by color (well i shove stuff in the top and sort when it gets overwhelming)

my scrap table

expedit #1 holds embellishments sorted by color and cardstock up top - you can see my white board with my assignments on it too!

expedit #2 holds all sorts of odds and ends

sterilite storage for october afternoon and american crafts supplies

ugly bookcase holds patterned paper and albums

ribbon storage

button storage

little white cabinet holds american crafts house shapes, paint and ribbon - the photo holder above is from ikea

new fabric covered bulletin board

wood floor with new rug

so that's that. a work in progress but so much better than a couple weeks ago. feel free to ask questions. thanks for looking.
