So new things first:
I've started a new venture that promises to be very exciting! I've loved graphic design since I was a girl (just ask my mom, I started a new "magazine" probably every week.) and am constantly doodling typography quotes. So I've combined it into a graphic design business and Etsy store to sell my quotes, and support my Etsy-buying habit. So visit my website and Etsy shop! And please bear with me as I get both going, because with limited Internet access it takes a while to upload everything. I'm working on it a bit each day!
This belongs in the category of old and new. It's new to me, but old. Our realtor's father-in-law recently moved to a smaller retirement home and had some furniture to get rid of. Since she helped us find our house, she knew we had a house that was almost completely empty! It's amazing how what felt so tight in a 950 sq. ft. apartment looks bare in a 1900 sq. ft. house! So she offered me this gorgeous hutch that needs a little TLC and I jumped at the chance! It's going to look amazing in my inspiration room, filled with wonderful art supplies! For now I'm going to stain the outside darker to match the cute little chair I picked up, but I may end up painting it white or gray. But the inside is where I'm going to have fun...I'm going to paint it pink!
Finally, in the realm of old news, we are still working on our library, but I'm so tired of waiting for it to be finished that I decided to show you guys some progress photos! I am loving the way it's turning out, and cannot wait to fill those endless bookshelves with a sea of books! Although as many boxes as we have, I still think we will have some empty shelves! All the more reason to go buy more books, right?
