Time for a cool change

After perusing so many fabulous scrap/craft rooms on Pinterest, I decided that I needed a color change in my space. We moved to this house just over a year ago and I was so crazy busy just trying to move in that I didn't take the time to paint my scraproom. My latest color combo obsession has been aqua, orange and brown, so of course I used that palette for my inspiration. Last Thursday, I jumped in and tackled the task. After three days of moving furniture, painting and using muscles I hadn't used for awhile, the job is complete! I'm a little sore and exhausted but it's so worth it. Take a look at the before and after...

I still have a little tweaking to do (window treatments, wall art, etc.) but I truly love the transformation. The color is Benjamin Moore Barely Teal and it just makes me happy!

What colors make you happy and inspired to create? I'd love to hear your favorite color combos. Thanks for stopping by!

National Scrapbooking Day is a real holiday to me. I know that sounds a little strange but when there is a day set aside for something that I'm so passionate about, I'm celebrating it!

I had to run a few errands here and there but was still able to hang out and have some fun with my peeps over at Norma, Carrie and the DT did an amazing job throwing out the challenges of the day. Luckily, I have until Monday to get them done but I did manage to crank out three projects.

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek! It's nice to have visitors, especially ones that you don't have to clean up for. :)

Peace. Love. Happy NSD!

My Scrap Space

Today's post is all about my scrap room and office. Several of my scrappy friends have asked for me to post pics and share my tips for organization, so I thought a video would be the perfect way to do both.

I always love seeing scrap spaces, send me a link to yours and I'll check it out. Thanks for stopping by today!
