It’s Up!!!

At long last I have the bookcase up and have added lots of stuff onto it’s shelves.  In fact it is already full *shock*  How did THAT happen?  I know I know, I am a hunter gatherer!  Definitely want to get another one of these, but it will be some time off.  I am very happy that the room is more spacious with less cumbersome furniture in it.

I have managed to relocate my cane display case into a corner of the loungeroom, so that has also given me some new floor space and a place for my beloved Missy’s bed 🙂  Now she can reside in comfort near me when I create.  She is VERY happy about that.  She has already tested it out whilst I have been clearing out a cupboard or rearranging things on the bookcase.

Ok, better dash and run some errands before I go off to work.  Will find the camera, which is still buried on my craft desk somewhere, and take some pics tomorrow.  See you then!

Keep Smiling and Stamping,

Maggie

A Dream Come True

Filed under: craftroom — Tags: , , , , — maggie mathern @ 9:22 am

Yes, I know this was the name of a SU stamp set.  In this case, I am talking about a personal dream come true.  I have coveted mac computers since 1989 and I have finally gone and bought one.  Thank you Stampin’ Up! for assisting me with this dream!!!!!!

I am now the proud owner of a shiny white macbook.  After all the years of checking them out, I am now able to put into practise things I have learnt, and continue to learn first hand.  There is a learning curve to switching from PC’s to MAC, but it is easy.

Now I have the task of setting up all my programs and documents so I can work from the MAC full time.  It has been great fun these last couple of days.  Mail will take a bit longer as I am waiting on a particular program to do so.  Then it will be full steam ahead.

One of the major reasons I wanted the macbook is so, like right now, I can sit by the fire when it is cold, or on a nice day sit outside and still work.  Portability and less space taken up in my craftroom.  A wonderful thing!

Hope you are all having a great day and that YOUR dreams come true.  Till next time,

Maggie
