Things happen....

Just as I am getting my craft back on, what happens but my studio desk (a shelf in the open closet) collapses.....luckily, I was in the room at the time and was able to catch it as it fell. Nothing broken. Turns out it was probably a good thing......the shelf that I was using was actually not anchored on the wall very well and was an accident waiting to happen. I put on my carpenter britches and measured and purchased new wood, twice the depth of the previous shelf. I was also able to raise it up a little bit higher, so now my bar stool that I sit on fits beautifully under the shelf. I'm sure others could have done a much better job, but I am really proud of myself!! I quite like my new shelf.

Happy crafting to you all!
