last wednesday was the grand opening of the new Erie Bank on 10th & Peach in Erie. we did the furniture and helped in coordinating some of the finishes in their “Private Banking Area” so it was pretty exciting to be in there and see everything all together, knowing that i put that together! we actually had very few problems on the whole job, which is always a relief, and the opening seemed to go really well. so far it looks like everyone working there really likes everything, and we received a lot of compliments on the Private Banking Area and their wall color choices.

here are some shots of the space right before the opening started. you can view the whole album here.

a few things

a few things to share today.

my friends got me this card a few weeks ago when i was feeling down.
really, it didn’t have anything to do with what was going on, but was cute nonetheless.

front: “Life can suck, I (we) know. Let’s get coffee sometime and talk about it.”
back: “Or we could get a bottle of wine and plot our revenge.”

also, i put my $.99 ikea metal strip “thing” on my wall at work. it weighs like .0005 lbs, so i figured i could put it up on the walls at work with sticky-putty, and not put any nails in it.

now i’m looking for some fun new magnets to use on the strip! kt directed me to K&J Magnetics, where i found these cute things:

last weekend of October’s trip to Pittsburgh to visit friends & Ikea was a success. i was able to get the two dressers i’ve been dying to get, as well as more storage boxes, shelves, and some miscellaneous accessories/items. “Operation: Declutter” is pretty much completed, though i have not been able to make the bulletin board of red fabric samples just yet.

anyway, here is an updated picture on the room:


also, today was our SECOND TO LAST SUNDAY IN OUR EXISTING CHURCH BUILDING. i mean, i KNEW that we were going to have our first services there the weekend of November 17 & 18 but i didnt even realize how soon it was coming up. it was pretty cool seeing the final episode of the relocation update on the screen – seeing the carpet put in, all the acoustical clouds in the sanctuary…it was just amazing. during communion my dad leaned over to me and said “last communion in this building”. i was just amazed, and it brought tears to my eyes. i have gone to Grace all of my life, in this single building, and soon it will be somewhere entirely and amazingly different. i’m so excited! next week we will be seeing the finished product! some of the furniture will be coming in this week for the offices, and the rest next week! ahhhh! it’s so crazy.

also, our children’s church wing was pretty much completely torn down. that was pretty crazy as well. we had a good turn out of kids, and when we get into the new building and get the new set, it’s going to be amazing!!!

Ahhh, the road to organization.  Very exciting.

Yesterday i met my sister at her house, measured the space in her home “office” and maybe will get a chance to draw something up and throw out some ideas for her.  We went to target where i made my first purchases on the road to Organization!

Item 1:   White cube bookcase.  will be turned vertically.

Item 2:  Red fabric cubes for bookcase.  I tried these out in the 9-cube bookcase i already have.  LOVE THEM.  they fit lots of stuff, and completely hide it away.  its wonderful.

Item 3:  Surge protector & extension cord pack.  I’m not going to post a picture of this, because it’s really not THAT exciting, but it’s going to be good to have more outlets, and i plan on taping part of it so it stays right on top of my desk.  no more bending over to plug in that hair dryer every other morning (really, i dont use the hair dryer than much but still, there are many things that get plugged and unplugged).

So, that is all i’ve purchased for now, i’m excited to build and organize and put away on Saturday!!
