Thanks to several dear friends, (including one of my design clients!), we were able to get my personal office furniture moved from the second floor of my previous studio to the new design studio in the back room of the retail store...honestly, I don't even know how it really happened. I know for sure, if it weren't for these darling, supportive, and dear friends (not to mention Sneelock, of course!), there is no way this would have happened.

Here's my wonderful moving crew:

Fred (Sneelock), Vincent, Dom, Omar

Fortunately for me, and unfortunately for Omar, he came in as the last customer of the day to look at several mirrors I had suggested for his home. Kindly, he offered to help us with several heavy pieces of furniture. I'm not really sure he knew what he was getting into, but I felt like he was a gift straight from heaven! He was the final piece of the puzzle that allowed us to get these large and very heavy pieces down the stairs and across the parking lot.

Thanks, guys!

There is still so much to do in this next week, I really can't think about the whole week! I'm just taking one day at a time and trying not to think right now about the inevitable "night shift" as I have come to call it. The resource library has amassed a huge number of various books and catalogs , and condensing them down has been no easy task!

But, for now, another giant step has been made.

My previous executive desk has now been delegated to my two project managers to share...this is my new tiny "executive" desk. I'm giving it a thumbs up! I've always loved this small desk and never agreed to sell it. Now, I know why! I really only need room for my computer and a lamp. The rest of the time, I'll be helping customers with the fabulous new resources we will have to offer.

I guess you could say, it's darn cozy.

Hooray for willing workers! What room of the store is your desk going to be in? Is it the back room that used to be all white? Hooray for a smaller desk, too. Does that mean you'll have a smaller work load? . . . SILLY ME!

What a crew!--I'm sure there is alot of humor being added with Dom on the scene!

I can't believe that with all of this that you have going on, you've still found time to post!

I really love the desk--although it's smaller, I think it will be a refreshing change--

I'm cracking up over your moving crew! I guess Omar wandered in at just the right time (or wrong, depending on how you look at it). And I love that you have a "hot dog" label. You're so cute, Mom.

I think it's perfect that you will now be working in a beautiful blue office in your ever inspiring store. In my mind you are right where you belong! How very blessed you are to have such wonderful friends willing to come to your rescue and do manual labor, to boot!
