Where the Magic Happens

It would be ideal to have a nice creative space that is overlooking a pond, or beautiful mountains. Mine, although a wonderful space, overlooks a grey wall. I love the color, but it has been needing something. I wasn't sure what, until i saw THIS wreath hanging in my friends house. I noticed it immediatly and asked her where she got it. She told me not only that she made it but that she had stuff for me if i wanted to make one too. Just a book and styrofoam wreath ring from the dollar store, and a  couple dabs of brown paint. Now I love a $2 project but free is even better! Thanks for doing the leg work Kayla! Click here for the directions at Living with Lindsay.I put it together in bits and pieces while i was watching shows here and there during the last week.  My five year old even helped. It was pretty mindless work, but it uses A LOT of hot glue so have a bunch of sticks handy. It is a wonderful addition to this beautiful large desk my husband made for me to do all of my little projects on. It's slowly becoming an inspirational space.  Now for a few cute desk decorations and maybe one of those cute sewing machine covers and I'll be set!

This is so fun. I love your space here. I'm all about sparse, creative decorating w/a unique flair. Not that I'm generating many such ideas, just appreciating them when I see them. You've got lots of fun ideas. Keep them coming! I'm adding you to my bookmark bar.

Thanks Christy. . . I can't believe what a difference that wreath makes in that room. I don't hang much on my walls, because i have such a hard time figuring out what will look right. This was just the right thing!

It looks great Kim. I love mine too, and for $2 it really pops.
