Hello guys! This past weekend was so crazy! The storm that hit our mountain town was pretty big and we spent a few days without power in our house.

It was my first time in a storm like this and it was pretty surprising to see so many streets closed, because of the fallen trees, there were cars stuck left and right. And for us not being able to cook (our stove is electric) or have heat was interesting. But it was fun to disconnect and use our fireplace to cook and heat the house, it almost felt like camping, well… indoor and away from the snow =]

So now that you are all updated in my weekend, I want to share some of my favorite Craft room/Office images

Don't you just love the closet desk idea?
Even though the pink version would not work with my long legs it's just adorable



I also love the contrast and pops of color

And I could not stop myself from sharing my latest obsession and next Project,
an awesome Studio table =] here my inspiration





And last but not least, wall calendar and notes ideas



I so want to try the magnet calendar idea =]

I just wanted to share a little bit of pinning etiquette along with this post too, because I see more and more people that start to pin from the main page of a blog or from Google searches.

Always remember to pin from inside a post, why? because when you want to come back to see the post where you took the image from (just imagine that perfect recipe you just pinned) it could be archived far from where you originally see it, remember that blogs have a new post every week and searching for a post with just an image is a pain!!

So keep that in mind and always source where you found the image, you know it's like with blogging, just the nice thing to do =]

Do you love Pinterest too? Oh wait, you still don't have an account! well then you can comment and leave your email and I will send you an invitation =] I know you will love it as much as I do <3

    I love that Pinterest. My bookmarks are overflowing and at times it’s really hard to find that inspirational photo I bookmarked earlier. I’d really appreciate an invite to Pinterest! Thanks a lot!

    I love Pinterest and would love to be able to use it! If you have an invite left I’d love it! :) [email protected]

    Also, those closet craft rooms are my favorite and since my legs are pretty short, I could totally do it. Thanks for the little bit of inspiration.

    Hi Joy,

    I’ve just found your blog while looking for upcycled clothing ideas. Beautiful blog you have here – and I love those creative spaces – especially the closet ones!

    I wanted to ask if you’d like to link up your upcycled dress from a very large man’s shirt tutorial from August last year?

    I’ve just set up a new page on my blog to try and pull together the great tutorials and ideas for upcycling clothes that I’m finding. There are so many fantastic ideas and tutorials out there – it would be good to have them all in one place so more people can find them.

    It’s not just a weekly linky party – but a page that will remain as a link to your project all the time!

    I would love if you came to take a look! Your tutorial is fantastic!

    Hope you have a great week!

    I like Jodi have short legs and that closet/craft area is amazing! I could not even believe it when I saw it.. the bonus is that its pink.

    I looked over your Pintastic and if you still have invites available, I would really appreciate one. My Bookmarks are beginning to conspire against me, and I am somewhat scared to add any more.

    Thanks and congrats on keeping a beautiful blog.

    Hello Joy! I was searching for upcycled clothing inspiration and found your sun dress from a mens’ 6x shirt. Brilliant! I love it. Then, I was looking around on your blog… I have SO bookmarked you! :) THEN, I found the Pinterest! I SO need an invite! Please. Now I just need more time in my day! ;) Thanks!

    I LOVE your blog. So many good ideas. Sigh. Now to find the time. MAKE the time. Anyway, I have come across pinterest a few times and am not quite sure what is it except that I like it. How do I join?

    I absolutely love the magnetic calendar idea. I make/take notes for just about everything and to be able to attach them to the day I would like to complete my note to myself would be magical. I’m also a sucker for a cute organized craft room. I think it’s my jealousy showing. I don’t think I could ever have an organized craft space. I don’t think it’s in the cards for me no matter how much i try. Cute pictures and ideas. Thanks for sharing!

    Hi Joy!

    I love your many ideas thank you for sharing them.

    I discovered this via and while stumbling I often come across pinterest pages and gazed at them adoringly. I’ve requested an invite a few times and have waited hopefully for months to no avail. Seeing the many comments on your page referring to invitations to pinterest has provided me with a bit of hope that my wait may perhaps be over….could I pretty please have an invite to pinterest? It would be extremely appreciated.

    Thank you!
