my new space...





I swear, I think that I may have the bestest husband...at least for today, lol!



We recently moved from a large 1700 sq ft house into a smaller home (about 1000) sq. ft that doesn't have stairs!



With the move to a smaller house, I lost my large kitchen, dining room and stamp room. I thought I was doing OK stamping in the kitchen and in the living room while watching TV but I must have been irritating the man because he decided to create a stamping space for me over the weekend.



Our master bedroom has a large, beautiful garden tub in it. I thought that it would be romantic but well, hubby & I are NOT little people and the tub was not as romantic as I thought it would turn out being, trust me, I will not subject you to those images, ha ha ha



Anyways, over the weekend, Shawn built a loft over the garden tub and turned the area into a great new stamping area, complete with storage, ribbon racks and shelving!



We still need to do the walls, I hate the wallpaper, but that will have to wait until I am out of this stinkin' cast!



Let me know what you think of my new area.
