New Stuff, Info, Pages! Updates in general!

Hi all! I wanted to upload some stuff to show what I've been working on for the past few months. Not much is really going on in my world other than I've moved, been laid off (this is a good thing), school is out for the summer, Corbin graduated boot camp and is now back home, I got to visit one of the places I've been dreaming of since forever (Savannah, GA) and life is now FINALLY back to normal!!!!

First and foremost - here's a picture of my new art room set up. This is the only picture I have of it being clean - it's not great quality but you get the idea!

and this is what it looks like now:

Amazing, right?

I've also been playing around with jewelry making. I bought a huge lot of old crap from e-bay and it came with about a billion pieces of vintage jewelry. Some usable but mostly not so much. I took apart all the pieces that were still usable to fashion into my own jewelry as you'll see here:

The beads are all newish, the pearls are pearls that may or may not be real that were rescued from the older pieces, and the main embellishment in the center are all rescued pieces.

Here are some newish journal pages that I'm really liking and proud of:

Well, that's all I have time for at the moment. I have to go pick my brother up from work. I'll post pictures of my trip later! Thanks for checkin' me out!

Toni, I loved the pic of your clean desk not like you get to see it that way much. I have an even smaller work space, it is a table that it is a foot an half deep and 32 inches long and right now completely covered! I notice in your pics that your table only has leg on one side. How is it held up on other, (those black boxes)?
