The first piece of my puzzle ... ARRIVED!!!!

Hi Everyone,

I hope you all are having a great beginning of week. Here the temperatures are still HOT, HOT... Well, as I mentioned in earlier posts, I'm in the process of re-designing my scrapping room, which is taking long...oh boy... This is the story that never ends... :((

I'm always looking for better solutions and ideas to storage everything, but I can't find anything that pleases me 100%. I tried with a few plastic containers, little boxes , ink storage from SU, drawers from Walmart and Ikea, etc... but feels like none of these solutions have been working for me.

Well, only thing I can say for now is that my beautiful new desk arrived last Saturday and my hubby and I put it together in some half an hour. Really easy to assemble and the best part is that this little piece of furniture is soooooo functional..At least for me... I love it!!! and I have 30 drawers just for me!!! Can you believe it??? :)))

Forgive me for not showing pictures now but I prefer to wait a few weeks until my cabinet and other pieces of furniture arrive, so I will be able to show you the whole picture. I promise to show the details of my storage solutions :))

In the afternoon we went out to the store looking for some stuff for my new desk and I happened to see a super cute lamp, which of course I had to own ;)... I love the color and it's a great accent accessory for my room. The best part though is that I can listen music from my iPods... I was also impressed with the decent quality of the incorporated speakers. You better have a look at the picture and judge by yourself ;)





And last but not least, I want to show you a card that I made to my husband a week ago. He loved it. The stamp is from Motivet, papers are from SU and rubbons are from Making Memories. I added some Martha Stewart clear glitter to give it a little bit of texture, liquid pearls and some Prima flowers. The heart punch is from SU.

Do you see anything cuter than this stamp?... It's called Doraline...Sorry I think is adorable.







Hugs,
LIM :))

I can't wait to see your scraproom. I am also still redecorating. As you may remember we moved a couple of months ago and we are slowly getting there. But the scrap/stamp room is the last to get finished, haha.

Love your lamp Lim it's just adorable! I know what you mean about your stamping area! I'm again wanting to reorganize because I've out grown my space and need more storage! Good luck to you!
