Coffee go-to summer drink

I love, iced or just doesn't matter.
Tim Tag this month was made just for me, I know it!

I love the new Custom Blend Distress ink pads almost as much as I love coffee.
I decided to go with a more sunny, "summer"-y custom colour blend.
 I think it looks like a beautiful summer sunset
Custom Blend - Scattered Straw, Rusty Hinge & Fossilized Amber
Instead of the Stripes Layering Stencil I used the Burlap one instead. I love the look of the plaid that Tim has on his tag so I will definitely be adding the Stripes stencil to my very, long wish list.

My new craft space....time to get crafty!

Finally, after a week of waiting for our stuff to arrive, I have my new craft set up. I absolutely love how my re-purposed computer desk/hutch turned out and it works perfectly in our guest bedroom. 

I bought this desk on Kijiji and although the structurally it was perfect I needed a bit of remodelling on it to make it amazing. So off to my dads workshop I went!

He listened to all my crazy ideas and basically told what would & wouldn't work.  New doors, drawers and pull it storage and it was ready for painting.  Off course I had to use my favourite Annie Sloan Chalk Paint colours ~ Old White on the outside and Florence for the pop of colour on the inside.

Well, take a look at it now ~ organized and ready for craftiness.  Check out my dollar store organizers & how well they fit! I couldn't be happier with how it turned out and, most importantly, I can close it up and have the room ready for when guests arrive. 

I think it's time to get crafty!
