New Studio Furniture

I consider myself very blessed that I have a husband who is willing to indulge my every need. Okay, maybe not EVERY one. But when I recently was thinking out loud about how I'd like to take that teeny, tiny cast-off kitchen table out of my studio and replace it with a lovely new cutting table with storage area....well I lucked out. We figured out dimensions, made a plan, bought supplies, and he and his brother got to work. Later I got to help with the varnishing.

We moved the cutting table into my room about a week ago...and I've been busy filling up the storage area with all the storage containers that had been stacked around the perimeter of my room. It's not totally done yet as we have doors to put on yet so that all the storage area will be enclosed. But now that I'm looking at it, I think I wouldn't have minded leaving it wide open....oh well, too late as the doors have already been varnished. Here is one side:

And here is the other side. I can actually fit in 32 (16 on each side) of those plastic storage containers that you see. But I don't have that many right now. Notice I said "right now". Tee hee!

Every morning we have a ritual in my house. Abby walks on me to wake me up. No need for an alarm clock in my house. She's pretty consistent with her timing too. Yep, right around 5:00 a.m. Ugh! I feed her and Zoey, make coffee, get the wood stove going, get coffee, sit down to the laptop on the couch to check emails and what's happening on the World Wide Web. Then, once I've settled in, Abby climbs onto my lap to have a snooze and sometimes check out the Web too. I happened to have my camera nearby this morning so I snapped this shot.

It can sometimes get challenging to balance the laptop on my legs and make room for Abby all at the same time. Can anyone guess whose web site I was viewing?
