My New Office/Work Space

I've been in my new house for 4 months now and I have been slowly getting moved in and organized.  It's amazing how much stuff I have accumulated over the years and I have boxes and boxes to go through.  The one room that is taking me the longest to get in order, is of course, my office/workspace.
The first thing I did was paint the walls.  I wanted it to be a very similar color as my room in California and I came pretty close.  It's a soft blue green, which I find it very calming. 
I started to unpack boxes, but soon realized that I was going to need a lot of storage space for all my beady stuff.  I found these great cube storage units at Bed, Bath and Beyond, but they have to be built.  Have I mentioned I hate building furniture.  I have built 2 and have 2 left.  I also had to buy a new desk, because my desk from CA was missing an important piece and I knew that that one piece would not magically appear anytime soon.  I have that kind of luck.  The new desk was a bear to build, but it's finally done.   
So I'm hoping that I will get in there this weekend, finish building the rest of the storage units and start unpacking more boxes that contain all my beady goodness.   Once I have the room somewhat workable,  I'll then move on to the closet.  Lots more storage to plan out in there as well.

Thanks to everyone who has left such kinds words for me.  I am starting a new phase in my life and after being with my ex for 22 years, it will be quite a change.  But I am looking forward to my new life.

Hello everyone,

After a long hiatus, I am starting this new blog.  Some of you will remember me as Marbella Jewelry.  I've had some major set backs with moving from California to Tennessee and then recently with going through a divorce.  I'm slowly getting my life together again and am hoping to get back to my love of jewelry design.  And hope to get my shop up and running very soon.

I'm looking forward to hooking up with all my favorite bloggers and can't wait to catch up with everyone.
