Switchig moods-time to focus on fall decorating. I pulled out all the pumpkins I save for Thanksgiving and picked one to use for this little round box. There is a box I love by Wendy Addison-and this is my take on her box. I am trying to think of other fall projects for decorating the house with, but I really just want to dive into Christmas. I guess because it's up in all the department stores and has my head swirling with ideas.
This weekend we will start painting the family room-finally!
In my Lab(closet)-I have been purging and reorganizing my drawers. The biggest change I have done is adding the drawer of cling stamps/embossing powders and adding the wood drawer organizers to the jet max drawers. The cling stamp/embossing drawer makes it so much easier for me to stamp & clean up after. I also prefer to keep my most used stamps on the blocks so I don't have to keep switching-and I can just stick them in the bin when done.
New lights for my studio! They are cool & very industrial. I like the fact that they are totally different-they're black and most of my stuff is white. I like the fact that the lights are rugged-mixed with my more elegant decor. LaVaughn was shocked with my choice, lol. I was saving up for a pair of wall mount swing arm lights, but these were a steal from Restoration Hardware.
Now I can start to hang my framed tags & more photos...I am slowly buying the frames.
First new thing-more metallic threads!!! I LOVE them and they are 50% off this week at JoAnn's-which is a GOOD deal since one spool is as much as $4.79. I had to take a few pretty photos of them, lol. I just love playing with natural tones with pops of metallic. The white flower is from Teresa Collins' new line and the cream one is from my stash.
Hi Keisha! As always, I'm loving your scrap room! I found the organizer for the Slice from Michaels (thanks for sharing that info with me, by the way!), but now I spy a divider in the drawer that I must have! Is that from the Container Store? It seems to fit perfectly inside!:)
Hi Liz, lol...it does fit so PERFECTLY-I was shocked!! Go to Target...in the closet organizing section...there are some clear drawer organizing bins in 3 sizes-this is the smallest...i think it is about $2.99.
Hi Pamela...I haven't bought stamps in months...if i were to splurge on some new stamps I'd go directly to Stampin Up(good word stamps) or Hero Arts(good word & butterfly stamps)-first!! The majority of my are HA & SU...I also love Tim Holtz's(good butterfly stamps) stamps. I also often use Making Memories, Studio Calico, Martha Stewart and Jenni Bowlin stamps. For these tags I used SU stamps(all words) and Martha Stewart(on the tag with the flower).
Heaven, I keep telling myself I will buy a new framed real butterfly once a month-then I buy "other" stuff!!! I hope to create a collection of them over time-they are beautiful & $$$. I bought both from Etsy Real Butterfly Gifts shop-it's amazing. Real HARD to not pick/heart TONS of insects-except the creepy beetles and scorpions!!!
Sorry, have another question, been meaning to ask you this for a while lol Where did you find those awesome little cubby type things that you have the butterfly pictures on in your lab? I love them but have no clue where folks are buying them.. I haven't seen them at my local Michaels or AC Moore. Thanks! :)
