Speaking of storage...

2 for less than the price of 1!

Day 8 - a day of rest.

Day 9 - I got my file cabinets.
Have you ever heard of Craigslist? It's a place on the internet that people post items for sale. I've never shopped on there before -- until I started looking for a couple file cabinets for my new room. First I started shopping Sams Club, Costco, Office Max, Walmart, etc. I found what I needed, but they were NOT cheap! I decided to check out craigslist. Within a few minutes I spotted an ad "Hon File Cabinet - $60." I clicked on it and the listing said bone color - mint condition - 1 for $60 or 2 for $100. SCORE!!!!! I e-mailed the lister. I got a reply back that they were NOT SOLD yet! I got the address to go look at them. It happened to be only a couple miles from my house. Alisha went with me because....you know....I didn't want to go to a strange house alone.

They are the PERFECT color and are just like new! And to top it all off....the lady selling them is super nice! She is an interior decorator and showed us around her house. I was drooling at everything! Her house is decorated in the style I LOVE. By the time we left, we had her business card and Alisha made and appointment for her to come help decorate her house :) Isn't it funny how things work out. Now I think the only big thing left to get is the countertop.

Day 10 - today I stamped!
No....not in my new room - but I will soon! I made cards for a Holiday Card Swap I signed up for. I don't know if we are supposed to post pic's of what we made until after the swap -- so no pic to share with you. But I can say they are ADORABLE!!

Wow! Your new craft room is going to look great! I love the colours you chose and the new carpet. And what a great deal on all your storage items. I'm dying to see what it looks like when it's all done! Lucky girl!
