It would figure that just when the kids are supposed to be going to bed, a thunderstorm rolled through our area. I had actually put them to bed earlier than usual tonight because I'd had enough of the screaming and fighting with each other. Well, they had barely slept an hour before the storm woke them both up, and chased them into the living room where Kyle and I were watching AGT. Its now nearly 11, and I think Maren has finally given up on trying to stay up with us, and gone to sleep. Phew! I was hoping to tackle some scrapping and blogging a lot sooner than this! Oh well, such as life.
So, as you can see in the pic, my work table and a filing cabinet are just inside the door way to the spare room- now my haven- downstairs. I took this picture from the doorway. We hid one of my wedding bouquets in this room so that the kids would stop pulling the flowers off and out of it, and it now happily resides next to my work table. In the far back corner, you can see the girls' old (to us) bouncer- which, hilariously, they still play with. While I was playing yesterday, Addison was in there, pushing the buttons that make music, and dancing to it. She was entertained for quite a while with it. Too bad they didn't find as much entertainment out of it when they actually fit inside it. Lastly, you can just catch a small glimpse of a rubbermaid container behind my work table- its currently storing most of my card stock and patterned paper. The file folders on top of the filing cabinet store all my EP, CB, JBS--all my favorite manufacturers. Gotta keep them separate, you know! As I move more downstairs, I'll share more photos with you!
Typically, I don't like using white card stock (in its natural state), and I don't like white 'white' space, but this card just begs for it. And, I'm ok with it! I'd love to find more projects like this that look phenomenal with just white paper and white 'white' space. Make sense? I may have to try this card again using a different color scheme. Love.
