my happy place.

I've been waiting for months to post pictures of the loft. I wanted it to be "done" before I did. But I've come to the conclusion that that's not going to happen for awhile. So... ignore the unfinished trim work... the unpainted trim... the mess... and focus on the happy. Because this really is my happy place... 



I love having a place to leave my scrapbook stuff out. It is so much easier to go work for an hour or two. Before, it wasn't even worth it to get things out if I only had an hour or two. (I'm trying hard to keep it relatively clean and organized. And not my "piles and stuff everywhere, but I still have a pretty good idea where everything is organized.") 

This little bucket probably isn't such a good idea, but it definitely makes me happy...

While I'm scrapbooking, the kids spend lots of time here...

Someday it will return to it's former life as a foosball table. For now, they use an art table more.


I need to spend more time here, on the elliptical, but it doesn't make me as happy...

So cozy...

One of my favorite things about the loft? So much creative play happens there. I'm not sure why, but there's lots of creativity floating around up there above the garage.

This had something to do with a boat and an octopus...

It's a fun place.
It's a creative place.
It's my favorite place right now.
My favorite, happy place.

I love the color on the walls! I haven't been up there in a while. You've done a great job putting it all together. Next time you want to watch Grey's and do scrapbooking, let me know. I'll come sit on that chair!

What a great space!

I feel the same about sharing pictures of my new house. There are so many rooms I'm dying to share on my blog, but I want every detail just perfect before I do it... *sigh*
