Happy birthday to you

Hey y'all!
Hope all is well?!...

Today I'm up on A Jillian Vance Design blog! Here's a little peek at what I'm sharing.

I'd love for you to swing on over to A Jillian Vance Design blog and leave some love there! :) Thanks so much for stopping by! And below I have a little story if you'd like to read it. ;)

Again, I've been somewhat MIA. And let me tell you why, in case you haven't heard already. ;) You see, I had this brilliant idea of rearranging/organizing/getting a actual craft desk/buying bins/etc.etc.etc. Well, little did I realize until afterwards of starting what I got myself into!! lol Seriously, out of all times, why'd I chose right now?!...There was Valentines day (which is also our 2 yr home anniversary), our youngest sons' birthday (which was yesterday...he turned 7!) and all the DT work that I have! Yeah, think my timing was off this time around. lol

However, it has all paid off!! I absolutely LOVE my new and improved little corner space that I have! I actually have a desk!! lol And it houses pretty much every single thing I have! (its not so little of a desk lol) And I put together my desk all by myself! :) I could have waited for my husband to help me but I wanted it built as soon as I got it and it feels quite good to have done it myself. ;) It may have taken me almost 3 hours but it was done right! lol (honestly, the instructions could have been way better. all that small print and arrows pointing to what? lol...I think that's where over half my time went to!)

Anyhow, I will be sure to snap some photos here soon and share! :) Though, leave it to me, I didn't even take any 'before' photos!! lol (that really is, so me!) So, I'll give a good description of what my 'before' was and then share the new and improved work area...I sure hope your imagination can run wild?! lol ;)

I'll be back soon!
Thanks so much for bearing with me on things! :)


  1. It's always a pain to organize, but you always feel better after you get it done! Good for you and this is something that seriously needs to be done in my room too!! :) Off to check out your card! Happy weekend!

  2. I left some love at JV and I am so happy for you and your space. I have just completed a big renovation of my space too, well my hubby did the painting (I am not allowed to paint anymore--long story!) but it is a huge huge task. Very proud of you for building your desk yourself. Can't wait to see the photos!

  3. I'll pop right over to AJVD blog.... And congrats on the new space! Feels so good, doesn't it?!!! Bev

  4. that sneak peek looks beautiful Shelly..hugs

  5. Your little bouquet of tulips are absolutely charming, Shelly, especially paired with that big birthday sentiment! So pretty! Even though you 'renovations' were somewhat uncomfortable, I'm thrilled that they've paid off in a significant way for you! Oh, to have a 'real' crafting space...maybe some day (lottery win required!)...
