Magnolia Tilda and a New Desk

ETA: Someone asked about my desk, but there wasn't a link or an email address, so I'm adding the information here in hopes that they'll check back.

My desk is from IKEA. The style name is Jonas and it's available both online or in local stores if you live by one. There are different styles, so its the Jonas desk with pull out panel. The desk is actually a computer/study desk and the extension on the right side does slide in.

I haven't had the desk for even 24 hours yet, but so far I really like it. I do miss having drawers though. I may eventually save up and get the drawer units that match.

Happy Monday! Here's a card I made for KL Stampin n Scrappin. Kelly just started pre-ordering for Stampavie! She'll be carrying Rachelle Anne Miller, Sarah Kay, and Lelo Designs. All orders this month that are $50 or more qualify for free shipping with the code APR2009.

Paper: Cosmo Cricket
Stamps: Mangolia, CTMH
Prima Flowers, Pearls, White Gel Pen, Copics, Crystal Stickles, and Nestabilities

Ever since we moved to Denver, I haven't had my own desk. For the last 3 years, I've been sharing a table with the computer and creating on an end table that is about 13 inches by 13 inches. a belated birthday gift, my hubby bought me this nice desk and chair. I saw this really awesome and comfy chair at IKEA, but I couldn't justify spending $150 for it when I could get one just as good cheaper. Brent said maybe for my birthday next year, lol. :)

My craft room isn't anywhere near set up I will post more pictures as I go. You can see that we don't have our blinds yet, but they'll be here in a couple of weeks. :)

Everyone have a great's back to work for me.

  10. Your artwork is always so beautiful, and this is certainly no exception. I do have a question about your workspace. Is that a mini sewing maching I saw on your desk? May I ask what brand it is, and maybe where you got it? Are you happy with it?
