Last week we made a big move across the country from Phoenix, AZ to central Ohio. It was such a fun road trip, it took us a little longer due to stops along Route 66 & old I-40 but we made it! I will share some pictures once I get my new office/craft room all set up. Yes that’s right with this move I am gaining my very own office space so no more corner office and crafts on the dining room table. {So excited} Once we got unpacked we headed to Walmart to pick up some items we needed to make it through a couple days hangers, bagels and a pencil sharpener to sketch out plans for our new home. I decided to pick up a X-ACTO Spira sharpener due to A. I already own lots of great X-ACTO brand products and B. I found this great coupon online. {you can see my whole shopping trip adventure over on my Google +}

Walmart Shopping TripWhen we got home I set up my new sharpener, which was super easy. {Just take it out of the box and connect the cord to the back of sharpener then plug it into the outlet.} Then I dug around in a few boxes to find my pencils, not one was sharpened so I was very thankful I picked the X-ACTO Spira sharpener up. It wasn’t super loud like electric ones I had growing up and it got the pencil nice and to a point in no time.

X-ACTO SpiraSince we just got here and have little unpacked my office is in the breakfast nook & the computer is set up in the corner of a room. As you can see it isn’t very user friendly…

Old officeWith my new office/craft room being a blank canvas I took out a few items for inspiration and I went to town “doodling” some ideas for the space. After a couple sketches that didn’t seem to work I finally came up with the perfect idea for the main wall/area…

SketchCome this weekend I hope to have at least this area all set up so I can move everything from my scattered office into it’s own space.

Be sure to keep a look out next week for an updated post of the new office space.
