I found some fantastic finds at The Background Fairy and my new found knowledge of PSE helped me make the banner my own.
I've also been working on finding a functional scrapbooking space in our small home. We moved last September to get my son into a better school and out of LA Unified because frankly the entire system is a mess right now.
It was a great decision of course but I had to give up my super cool scrap space also known as our hall that had built cupboards on the top and bottom and the most awesome counter top ever...So the problem of moving my space into Lily's closet is that I do most of my scrapbooking in the evenings...I can't exactly retreat in there before Lily goes to be because there is way too much going on and I get called back and forth to deal with whatever she seems to be getting into so there's not really a better time than after the kids are in bed.
Now when we do put Lily to bed (at around 10p.m.) she doesn't fall asleep right away. No this girl must be nocturnal I swear so by the time I can sneak in there it's almost 11 p.m.!
So since September I have had to scrap too fast or wait til the last minute for deadlines and such (oh I get them done on time) but I have lost the relaxing part that scrapbooking used to give me.
So I told my hubby how I was feeling and he agreed that we had no choice other than to turn the dining room into my space.
I've been trying to work in my supplies because I can't bring everything into that area but I'm getting a little more comfortable. Of course if there was an award for the messiest scrap space right now I think I'd win...I'm getting creative with storing my supplies too! Hopefully in time I'll find a way to make it my own again.
Yesterday Lily was playing dress up with a few things I picked up for her recently. She loved the lei's and looked adorable! So I snapped a few pics of her cuteness
The slight blue in the background of this pic really makes it look like these photos were taken in Hawaii doesn't it!
Here's a few more
Well that's it for today...thanks for sticking with me on this post. I know it was a long one.
