Today I went to dinner with my family in celebration of my birthday. Dinner was good and when it came time to gifts, they gave me a card. Inside the (singing) card, was piece of paper with a picture of a desk and a note saying “IOU one desk from IKEA.” I totally didn’t think they’d ACTUALLY get me a desk of any sort, so I just passed it off as nothing. As we walked to the car, my mom was asking me when would be good to go and get it. I told her whenever is good for her. She popped open the trunk and said something like “Is now good?” and I looked in the trunk and there were two boxes from IKEA – my new desk!! I was totally shocked and didn’t expect it at all, but it was a really happy surprise. I’ve been using my sewing table for a while because desk are, well, not cheap! So, I’ve been putting off buying one since the sewing table was working well enough. The last time my mom was over she mentioned seeing some desks at IKEA for like $140 or so and was suggesting I get one. I said that that was more than I wanted to pay and didn’t think much of it after that. Tonight, though, I came home with a new desk! I love it :o)
Here’s a picture of the new desk (I forgot to take a picture of the old set up, whoops!):
You can’t really see it, but my rockin’ new chair from Matt is in the picture, too. I love that chair, it’s sooo comfortable!
Since I’m here posting about my new desk (from my new desk!), I’ll show you what I’m working on right now – the Twisted Flower Sock:
And here’s the Grim Reaper with eyes and a mouth (still needs a scythe):
