Here comes Santa Claus...

I don't know about you, but I have been a Pinterest maniac for the past few months now. I search for everything on there. Now that the holidays are fast approaching, I decided this year I would have an advent calendar for Isabella. Of course, I would rather not have to buy one so I searched for the cutest ones to make. There were so many different ones to choose from that I created a board for it just in case I wanted to make a new one for next year. Since December is right around the corner, I opted to make this one. Just had to print it, cut it out and assemble - easy peasy...well, it was slightly time consuming but it was well worth it. Now all I need are things to put inside...

A Space to Call my Own...

We have lived at our house for almost 6 years now. We recently underwent a major renovation and now I finally have a space I can call my own...my creative zone, my home away from home {even though technically it's in my home}. It took quite some time but I finally completed my office space. I had a bit of difficulty trying to figure out how to decorate this room. I needed it to be a creative space, a place I didn't mind spending countless hours in, a place that will inspire me every time I walk into it. After loads of research, hours and hours searching on the internet for bits of inspiration, and tons of paint and wallpaper swatches later...I set out to create that wonderful space. With the use of color + a lot of storage, I think I accomplished what I set out for - the perfect little workspace. Here are a few before and after shots..
