WOYWW - My Space Finally

Well I finally have my little space it's not organized yet just quickly put up on the desk and under it still have those boxes to the left to go thru orgainze. It's been put underneath our attic stair case which is in our bedroom seeing it will be one of the last few places to be worked on in the house.  I know I have some stash in those boxes for sale too and possibly some candy too. I love having my space and a chair to sit on weee no more floor crafting unless I choose to.
I won't start anything until all the stuff we have to put away is done. That way it will force me to get it done quicker lol
So I have some happy mail from CG It's so fantastic to get a homemade card I love the happy mail and this is the 1st one I've gotten at my new home and it came with some lovely treats inside too
Sorry I didn't get around to all that visited me I'll have more time this week for sure the moving is done now to organize and get the house in order :)

You know I thought I'd be off the ground but things are moving slower then we hoped quicker in some areas but slower in other. Cleaning has taken over at the moment, along with painting and moving boxes and emptying our locker, My calves are burning from the amount of stuff we carried up the stairs we managed to be moved out of our apartment in 4 hours driving back and forth to get everything so my stash is still in boxes and right now it's on my sunroom floor plus we've hit a Heat wave !!! UGG !!! our attic is our own personal SAUNA ... not that I'd want to be in one today lol
So this was taken earlier today when it was sunny out we just finished bringing back 2 loads of stuff from the locker still more to go and ate something and sat down to relax
So check out everyone else's space at Julia's and have a Happy WOYWW :)
So here's my Space Just shoved in there quickly all I've used is a pair of scissors and a marker :( I miss them lol but they aren't going anywhere
I'll pop around shortly to visit you all
P.S I still have candy running here till Aug 2nd !!

Right now my desk has a spot in one of my closet's cubbies seeing I packed my clothing first lol all my Jeans and winter sweaters before the crafty goodness ... is that wrong I ask ... NAH!!! so it's just jammed in there seeing this place is being shown to a person that might want to rent this tiny little apartment. I can tell you they will enjoy the A/C if it's cranked or the heat when it's cranked up this apartment loves extremes I use my winter comforter in the summer and my summer sheets in the winter lol. I think Kitty is gonna take it the worst when we move but he will have tons of space to walk ,run and chase me around.
In my Cubby is envelopes and larger scraps some used stamps I'm no longer using & are for sale, fun Markers and a few of my watercolour pencils and chalks. Some flowers from my sister to inspire me to use and front and center scrap paper box, with images I've coloured in or to be coloured in for stuff I'll be making later on ONE day !!
