I have been busy-busy unpacking boxes and trying to make my house livable finally! I found a box of these really cool wrought iron candle holders I had been collecting for about 10 years. I thought they were gone forever, like maybe I had donated them to Goodwill or something by mistake. But lo and behold, I found the box they have been in for the last 1.5 years.
We had this odd cutout section in the wall between the dining room and the family room–it is very deep, at least 24″ deep, and wide and high. A cool architectural feature until you start contemplating what to put in it. And it needs something in it.
The plan is to somehow arrange the candlesticks in the area. They are all kinds of diff heights. I am sure I don't want candles on them though–maybe something kind of cool thing on them but I don;t know what. I definitely don't want candles though–too much like a weird gothic altar or something with that much wax going on.
So then I got a wild hair and have started rearranging my scrap room once again! I am applying paper to the fronts of my mismatched Ikea 9 Drawer Boxes to match my room. I ma using black white and turquoise-y blue…hmmm, now that I think about it, it is kind of like It's About Time's new store motif but hey, its a great color scheme so why not?! I am using papers from Heidi Swapp, Doodlebug, and Luxe to cover each drawer–it is looking pretty cool right now! I'll post pics when I am all done.
Here's a sneak peek at a class I'll be doing two different versions of at two different stores:

And a layout I did using Pink Paislee's Office Lingo paper line. It works so great for boy stuff–just choose the papers without any pink. I used the Zutter Bind-It-All to make the notebook paper-style munched up edges.
