"A New Season"

Here are my art journal pages for "A New Season"

I found this image (of the trees in bloom) and was immediatly inspired to do the following layout. I am pleased with how it turned out.

This new season I will...

-Shop for vintage items for our home
-Create a comfy bedroom (purchase bedframe)
-Design and sew pretty dresses
-Create my hopes and dreams binder for my biz
-Sew a pretty quilt for picnics

Home Inspiration-Bedroom

So as usual, my idea for a room changes 5 million times before I actually do any decorating to it. (Maybe that is why we have been here for nearly 3 years and have not decorated yet)

All that changed while going past this bed at Ikea the other evening...(I also love the dressers, but they need to have more color!)

I jokingly said it would be the perfect bed to make forts in...well then I started thinking and Yes! This bed would be the perfect bed to make forts in and how much I really do love this, and the ability to make a fort. Sure I am 24, but that isn't going to stop me from having fun.
Hang some pretty vintage sheets down the sides, hang some fairy lights and hide in there making crafts with my friends-there is no other way to spend a lazy weekend.

Also a great sun/heat shade during the HOT summer days, and a great way to keep warm on the COLD winter nights.

So then, my decor ideas for the bedroom changed. I guess the best way to explain the new plan would be...random. A mix of vintage and modern items, comfy, and colorful. A room where I can go that does not compromise creativity.

Here are some bedrooms/decor I like

For the fort-esque

Make it pretty


Easy to hang garlands!

10 Things I Love...

Today has been another blustery day...Good thing we got some snow last night, it has kept the dust down.
I hope everyone had a great week, and is looking forward to a wonderful weekend.
(My weekend is going to be consisting of tackling the moutainous pile of laundry that I can never keep up to...I guess that is what happens when there are only 9 washers and dryers in a 170 suite apartment building)

So without further ado, here is todays 10 Things I Love...

Colorful buildings

This lovely piece of art

This lovely quote

Pom Pom Owls

Paintings on wood slices


I love how the butter and blueberries on top the pancakes make it look like a cute bear face

This lovely photo of masts

Patchwork chairs

This bike

Happy Friday everyone!!!

Style Crush-Lace

Now that the snow has finally melted (and hopefully will stay that way, it is Spring!)
 And to me, Spring is delicate, soft, light, innocent, airy...lace!
Here are some lace fashions that are fashionable (and I mean that in the sense that you are not wearing your lingerie, not over the top, not wearing a wedding dress, or granny-ish)

What are your favorite Spring fashions?
I hope that everyone had an awesome long weekend! I sure did!
 (And I did absolutly NOTHING!) ...Okay, well I crocheted a cell phone cozy, took a few photos of clouds, worked on my art journal from Elsie & Rachel's class, & ate some chocolate...but thats about all...

Speaking of my art journal, here are 2 new photos of it! (The inside cover, and a 2 page layout) 
If you are in the class, how are your bonus pages coming along? Are you as eager as I am or just laying low until the long awaited offical date comes around?

I will be back with todays Style Crush feature after dinner! Have a great evening!
