It's funny when you write a book, it seems like there's a mad rush around the release and then radio silence after that...you're sort of sucked into this odd vacuum of quiet...
And I admit, it's almost nice. Because you've been crazed for so long that the silence is welcome... until you realize you've been TOO silent...like I've been about this:
...Perhaps you missed the details, but I'm extending the deadline till Tuesday, September 4th just in case!
All you do is create a layout inspired by Sweethaven or one of the Sweethaven pages above and then link up to it on THIS blog post (in the comments.)
And really, creating one simple layout shouldn't be too hard for a creative crafter like you! You can also create a mixed media piece or art journal page...or whatever you want! Just follow the rules on the original post and we're good to go!
Now...on to the next.
One of my favorite things about my new scrapbook space is this ribbon curtain:
I got some questions about it, and I wanted to share a few more shots just because this is so easy to recreate. First of all, I made this as a valance for Sophia's room, but it doesn't really "go" in there... so when I saw the small basement window in my office, I knew it was perfect.
All I did was cut various lengths of ribbon, tie them around a curtain rod and knot them at the end so they won't "fly away."
In my opinion, the more ribbon and the brighter colors, the better! If you're looking for a nice way to pull in some color without being obnoxious, this is it!
I also did a little overhaul on this old paper sorter:
The blue was fine, but kind of boring since the walls were blue. I took a bright pink (obnoxious on its own) paint and layered it on.
At first, I was worried. Going on over the blue, it started to look purple. And I hate purple.
But in the end, you can see it turned out just perfectly as the little desk caddy that holds my tools, photos, rulers and the like:
Don't forget I've got a great Studio Calico giveaway (below) and there's one more day to enter the memory verse CD giveaway. You can read more and enter HERE!
What are you waiting for? Join in the Sweethaven fun! :) Happy Wednesday!
