Happy birthday to me!!!!!

Let me start off by saying I LOVE my dh so much. My birthday is not till the end of the month. Well ever since I seen Ash's scrap space I kept telling dh that I wanted it for my birthday. Thing is that Ikea is 2 hours away from where I live. Then I got a call from Jasmin's agent asking if she can be in Chicago yesterday for an audition. I figured since I would be going that way that it would not hurt to swing by. (By the way her audition went great! Crossing fingers) Okay back to me LOL... So after the audition Jazz and I swing by Ikea. I was like a kid in a Candy store!!! I have never been there but I fell in love right away. Jazz and I were having lunch at the Ikea restaurant (best ribs ever,yes I went off my diet but so worth it!) Anyhow dh calls and I tell him how I love the desk and there is even PINK fabric bins and a hot pink chair. (you all know how I love pink) He tells me to just get it:eek: I was so happy I almost choked on my french fry (Another thing I should not have been eating) We did not get home till late so I stayed up till midnight to set it up!!! THANKS ASH!

Awesome!!! I love it! Isn't it the best space ever!?! I love how everything is within arm's reach! No getting up for that perfect sticker anymore! I have learned that I need to get some sort of a mat for the top of my table if I don't want adhesive, scratches, etc. to get on it!

Etsy has lots of pink cupcake liners in the Supply section! http://www.etsy.com/search/supplies?q=pink+cupcake+liner

Gwen- I have seen pics of your house and it looks pretty big. I amsure you can find a place for it. If not just turn your living room into a huge scrapbook room. Wait till your dh has to leave again and then when he comes back just change it again. lol

Ash- I just seen the link and I am ordering some for sure!!! If you find a mat before me will you let me know cause I need one for sure with the way I scrapbook.

you crack me up! yeah, the house is big, but I really want my SB space to be a retreat away from everyone, which is why it's hidden in the farthest corner of the house. I think if I rearranged that room (it's also our guest room), I could make it work. But I have shelves and pegboard installed, and the idea of moving that and dealing with all of the holes in the wall makes me crazy. I lack the vision to mentally rearrange rooms, it's definitely a weakness of mine. Sad

I love to mentally rearrange. Snap a pic of your room and I will make a sketch 4 you lol. Smile I agree the holes would make me nuts too.

I love this desk. After having my HUGE desk for so long and how much space it takes this desk looks like the way to go. But that task will have to wait until Summer. Smile I do love the black and pink!
