I have a few cards/projects and stuff to share with you during the next few weeks here (while I am away!) Also, I am really excited to be traveling to Chicago next week for a Copic certification course and CHA! I will be sure to share LOTS of pictures!
For now, I want to show you a gift I received from my father-in-law before I left for my trip. (Pardon the mess in my stamp room---nothing is unpacked and put away yet as we left right after moving in!)
My father in law took pity on my work space after one of his visits in our old house. After he found out I would be having my very own stamp room in the new house---he set to work creating a dream workspace for me. I am absolutely floored...
Here is a picture of the main desk. You can see the sewing machine that is housed in the main compartment of the desk. The front panels can be unlocked and the sewing machine accessed on the right and a rolling cart is on the left (that can be rolled out when I want to sit and work at the desk.
There is a panel on the back of the desk that can be pulled up to create a MASSIVE workspace (I will be sure to take pictures of that when I return!)
Here is a top view of the encased sewing machine. The machine is on a lift system inside the desk...so when I want to use it, I just lift the panel, push down on the machine and it will lift up to be able to work on the desktop. There is another panel that you slide on at that point that creates a flush service around the machine. When you are done sewing, you can remove the panel, push the machine down and it locks into place. Very cool!
Here is a side cart that is a locked cabinet with huge drawers--where I can store scissors, cardstock, coloring tools and things I don't want my children to have easy access to. My father in law created a mini version of this which is housed inside the desk on the left hand side.
