End of the year and knowing my "great room" (LOL!) is going to soon be rearranged made me want to show you pictures all around. This is what my jam-packed little sanctuary looks like at the end of 2011. :)
The dehydrator gift from Terah, my new printer, and the big fun purchase of 2011...the new pen and ink cabinet! ;)
My workhorse desk area.
Looking into the room...the two chairs will be gone. Going to look so different to me. And the two chair arrangement is all Karma has ever known. Hope my reader's table will work for my laptop in the new-to-me loveseat. So exciting! My back can hardly wait! ;)
My trusty craft table by the windows. Yes, it's my former dining room table. You can do what you want when you live alone and your cat doesn't care. ;)
Door to the little porch where Karma waits for snow.
The new bookcase this year next to the TV. Yes, that's a bedroom triple dresser the TV is on. You use what you have where you need it, right? LOL! Even a shot of Karma's favorite silly "toy" this year...the plastic shower curtain liner "rope" strung along the floor. Silly girl!
And the art table...where I played with my very first art journal in November...and with Serena's gorgeous daisy painting that I won hanging over the table for inspiration! Especially cheery during the long winter months.
I guess I'd better get working on my goal list for 2012! Time's a wastin'!!
Yesterday I worked on Thank You cards and more Christmas letters owed. Nine envelopes will be off in the mail today. I still have three more letters I'm working on, but I'd best stop and work on the goal list first today. Do you believe it is almost New Year's Eve! :)
Oh! Oh! Oh!
I forgot to tell you that when Dagan went off to work and left me with that Survivors show on their big TV...well, I couldn't figure out how to turn up the volume or put it on pause...nothing I tried worked with the remote control or mouse or keyboard that were on the coffee table.
When Dagan came home I explained my dilemma. He laughed and--from the kitchen, mind you--says loudly "XBox. Pause." Well, I tell you! I felt like I was smack dab in the middle of a science fiction movie! The TV paused!!
He says softly, tell it--"XBox. Play." And I did! Whoohoo! What a techie world they live in, eh? But...the XBox does not choose to listen every time, I assure you--LOL! It is moody, as all electronics tend to be. But that really blew me away!! I didn't even know you could watch Netflix movies through an XBox in the first place, let alone that it had voice control! ;)
Oh darn! I forgot to think of seven things to tell you about me for the blog award. Maybe that should be one. If I don't write things down anymore I forget them--LOL! I'll work on that list, too. I'd better go write that down....
