"Can you believe the mess she is making downstairs??"

I just got back from my visit to the container store and here’s what my car looked like:I didn’t take pictures of the mess this stuff made inside. (In my already messed up family room/staging area). I think the cats are getting a little worried....
Hopefully over the next couple of days it will sort itself out into the lovely workstations and storage pieces I designed. Then I’ll take nice pictures of my pretty new office (hee, hee, heee). But really, I’m feeling like things are getting accomplished with this project so I’ll just leave it at that for now.

Oh, and a funny thing happened on the way home from the container store. (Don’t tell my hubby). I found a yarn shop! Whee! It was right where it always was, I just never made the connection that the two stores were actually in the same town and not very far apart. (I won’t go into my geography issues here, but it happens!) Thanks to my good old shop finder (that I keep in the car); I found it and was able to stop in for a few minutes. I was a good girl though, considering that I just spent a fair amount for the office, I only bought 2 skeins of yarn. One skein for a WIP as a just-in-case I need more, and one for a planned project that I needed a specific color for. But it’s nice to get to see what they have and get on the mailing list.

A container store and a yarn store close together??? It's my dream come true! :)
