Good morning Tuesday!

well, I'm determined to enjoy today.  I woke up with a bit of headache and last night I strained something in my back, made for a restless night's sleep.  I did do some stretching and it feels better but I thought I would take today off from the gym as it's yoga day and I didn't want to make it worse!  So, what have I done with my one hour of extra time?  I cleaned off my desk and put things away, I even wiped it down!  The desert is a VERY dusty place and if you don't dust for a week it looks like you haven't dusted in MONTHS!  Here's a little peek:
I tried to back up and get all of it but I couldn't quite get the whole affect.  I love my large fiskars cutting Matte, it covers up the peeling part of my table.  I bought this when we moved into this house 7 years ago, it came with free chairs (all of which have died).  It's what we could afford at the time and it's 6ft long which is AWESOME for spreading out.  I've been eyeing another table with storage on the sides for a couple of years now it looks like this (they sell it at Target HERE) :
perfect for getting some of that stuff off the top of my desk!  Especially my picture storage (still working on that!)  Got a great idea from Melissa Stinson today in her reorganization of her office.  With this shorter desk (and my current desk) this would work an Alex cart:
Can you tell I like black?  it will fit right up next to the table just fine.  I'll have to be patient though because I'll have to get these things one at a time and there are some other things that are in need but a girl can dream!

on to my office (I do share it with my hubby, I won't show that part...)  But this is another picture of how I store my adhesives, punches, cricut cartridges, and layouts.  you can't really see all of it in the picture but they are in baskets on the bottom)
It needs a larger basket to put my camera paraphernalia in it (my older smaller cameras, they are the kid's cameras now) and a larger basket to put my punches in.  guess that will be on my next ikea expedition! 

I do have a couple of cards I wanted to share with you that I made with the new You + ME kit:

 I loved working with the twist ties by pebbles (it's the stapled pink thing under the Dollie)  These cards came together pretty quick!
I have to tell you, I went to the ideas section at Scrapbook circle to look and see what the other girls did--AMAZING!  Check it out HERE.

Thanks for the visit today!
