A few examples:
This last design isnt mine. You can find instructions for it here.
I even came across this amazing find.
$26 down from $70! The amazing thing is that I had JUST been looking at this exact kit, but I couldnt find anywhere online that had it in stock Im wondering if its maybe been discontinued. But I got one! And I got it at a GREAT price. I just ordered a Cuttlebug* to use it with.
*Side Note: Oddly enough, when I ordered my Cuddlebug yesterday from Amazon, it wasnt eligible for prime shipping, and it also wasnt $69.99. It was $53 with $10 shipping. So while I saved a few dollars, I could have had it by Tuesday if Id ordered it today, but instead Ill have it sometime between the 20th and 25th. I dont know how I feel about saving a couple bucks vs having to wait longer. Im not that patient of a person.
But back on topic I need a new workspace. Ive got all these new supplies, and Ive been spending a couple hours a day either designing on my computer, or paper crafting, but this is the the area that Im working in
My living room is a mess. Its impossible to keep anything organized, and hunching over to work all the time is killing my back. A few days ago I asked on the FB spouse page for our base if anyone was selling a desk, and I found two that met my needs and then they both ended up not selling the desks. So now Im trying to decide what to do. I dont want to spend anymore than $50 on a desk, which pretty much leaves me with the options of finding one used (which hasnt worked out so far), buying a flat pack one, which probably wont be great quality, or making my own.
As far as making my own goes, it wouldnt be anything too complex, because I dont have the tools or the know how for that. But Im thinking about doing something like this
from So Not Donna Reed or similarly, this
I think Ill probably head out today looking for options and hopefully find something. If I do, my next post will be a cleaning up the mess that is my living room and (possibly making and) organizing my new workspace post. Otherwise my next post is going to be a how to frame trading cards with a side of oh, my aching back.
If youve got any ideas other than the ones Ive mentioned for a decent workspace, please let me know. Likewise if youve got any pro tips for using my new toys (Silhouette, letterpress kit and Cuddlebug) leave me a comment, and Ill love you forever. Actually, if you just read my blog Ill love you forever but comments make me happy.
