Crafting Under Construction ...

Hello! Well, ok, not much crafting actually - just lots of 'under construction.' It's been far too long since my last blog post so thought it was 'bout time for me to show everyone why I haven't been doing much stamping & crafting lately.

You see, back in February, my creating area looked like this:

But, in early March, we cleared the counters and shoved everything to the side in order to make way for a few improvements. Of course, shoving things around meant no more space to create.

This is what the entrance to the Stamp Garage looks like at the moment ... like I said, not much room for stamping.

The first delay was waiting for the flooring to arrive. Of course, it was on back-order. But, the cork flooring is now here and waiting to be installed.

I'll also be getting new counter tops. These were purchased on eBay (from a chem lab so they should hold up to stamping and such just fine). The plan is to refinish them.

We've mapped out the additional cabinets going into my work area (including space for a sink) ... but first: painting.

The painting is currently underway ... a splash of color under the cabinets.

Mmmm ... orange.

So that's what's been going on here. I'm hoping to return to stamping, crafting, and classes this summer ... as long as construction continues to progress!
