Desk makeover with Voice of Color paint

Last garbage clean up day I scored a solid wood desk at my neighbor’s curbside (It’s not embarrassing to call someone and ask them to haul their garbage back in away from the side of the road, eh?). Once I had the furniture in my possession I knew a desk makeover was in order.  Just a little dab […]

Deco Foil transfer canvas bag from Expressions Vinyl

Sooo… I signed up for an organization blog post with Expressions Vinyl.  While I sit scratching my head on what genius idea I should share (I may possibly be the most unorganized person ever) I realized that my best defense in staying organized at work is having something that can cart my junk from point […]

When I saw everything Shutterfly had to offer in this year I couldn’t resist adding pieces from their […]
