TUESDAY - Project Life & New Addition


This is the new addition to my office. I was shopping for a lamp for Bob's desk when I spotted this one at Walmart last week. The only blue one they had so was meant to be mine, right?

I like the larger bulb. The other lamp I had was just a small hologen that did not provide enough task lighting for the room the thing took up. The compartments for storing the 'constant use' items is nice but I particularly liked the outlet ON the base where I can plug in the heat gun or glue gun. A decent buy for a little over $12. I have a feeling when Bob sees this one, he's going after one of his own.

Okay... I puzzled over how to store the impromptu purchased Project Life items and decided the best place (and most available at the moment) was the top of the Cutting station platform. For now.


This is the top of that area where the embossing folder box is stored beneath. 


This tower of 2/ 3-drawer sterilite items have been sitting on the cutting table in the sewing room waiting for either a purpose or a pass since I purged them from the studio last fall. The bottom 3 drawers are holding the individual card packs of PL (and similar company) cards. The next 2 drawers up hold the paint chips I showed you yesterday and the top drawer contains the small image stamps purchased for the PL albums.  By the time you see this post I will have added labels to coordinate with the storage items across the room, pulling everything together.

I've finished gessoing the pages of the composition books and should have the Documented Life Planner put together for Monday's post. 
Creative Blessings!

    1. I like the blue. The base is a shade or two lighter than the motorcycle Bob was working on when I saw him for the first time :-D
