April 2013 Papetrey Ink Blog Hop

Theme for this month's Blog Hop at Papertrey is Tilted. So not me. At the last minute I decided to participate and this is what I came up with.

I know, not very exciting. It's a challenge. And as tilted as I am willing to go! Colours are awful. It's PTI Spring Moss but doesn't look it at all due to the fact that I didn't have any daylight to photo my card in. That will teach me not to be so last minute next time!

Renovated Office/Studio

So excited to share some pics of our new office/studio space. We've been planning this out for quite a while now and it's finally done. Well, not completely. As you can see, it still NEEDS A PAINT JOB but we just don't have the time to do it right now. I'm thinking gray for the walls.

But all the cabinets and counter-tops are installed and I'm totally loving it. Could not be happier. So much storage space and surface area.

I'm lucky that my husband and I always agree on major decisions. We like the same things in furniture and colour, etc., etc., so that part of this reno was easy. Here are some pics; just keep in mind that they are not exactly beauty shots, seeing that the room badly needs a paint job!

My husband's side; enough legroom for painting and computer


Things I love about this room: great big window! It's hard to see from the above photos, but we have a floating counter-top running across the window wall (7.5 feet long). My counter/desk is a full ten feet long and so is my husband's. Love that I can stand when I'm working. Also love the totally fab LED under-counter lighting. And the big bookcase. And the HIDDEN computer wires (for the most part). And that we have room to grow (not all the storage space is used yet).

Such a thrill for me!
