I’ve wanted to share this list for a while, but needed a little time to pull it together. I’m a little down on myself today, because I didn’t finish my “day in the life” project. I started off okay, but then started thinking my day was too boring to even document! I spent most of the day yesterday working at the computer…not the most exciting thing to document. I didn’t even wear a cute outfit. It has really made me rethink how I spend my days. So I guess that is good. I’m not going to give up. I think I will try it again in a few weeks, going into it a little more prepared…I want to set aside an album with a bit of a plan. So, there, I’ve confessed!
On to the list-
Favorite color combos
I have loved this combination for a long time. I remember a domino cover with this scheme and I was so inspired by it that I created a layout that ended up on the cover of Scrapbook Trends….quite a few years ago.
If I were redoing any rooms in my house right now, I might go with these colors. Right now, just typing this, I’m visualizing all kinds of ideas. I need to redo our laundry room (badly), so this might be a good choice there.
I’ve wanted to use that Basic Grey pattern paper forever! I love it!
I just really love how these colors pop on any kind of crafty project!
These colors are so cheery and clean and cute and totally remind me of kellicrowe!
When we were working on decorating our living room, I almost went with this color scheme…but it ultimately felt too formal to me. I love it, but it just didn’t “feel” right for what I wanted in that room.
I love this Pottery Barn room, but it’s done with the emphasis on blue, with black and white accents-
One of the reasons I think I love scrapbooking and crafting so much, is because it’s sort of like a small decorating project. Putting colors, textures, embellishments and design together. I would like to redecorate all the time, but it’s not really financially possible. I do think that is why I don’t really like to finish rooms….I like to leave a little bit needing to be done, so that I can be in the process all the time. I love the process more than anything. I do appreciate the feeling when you finish a room and step back and take it all in….but I’m always a little sad that it’s done.
I have photos to share, but no time, so I’ll save them for another day…maybe tomorrow.
Thanks for checking in!
