So very many things…..

I am so happy because I am finally ready to tell you about one of the exciting collaborations that I have been working on! I've been designing some vinyl wall decor with my friends from Vinyl Fruit! Lindsey & Nickie are so sweet and talented. Here is the first round of designs that we've worked on together….
a handwritten Welcome Home. I put mine on a glass door in my house (if you've never used these, they are like rub-ons and can be adhered to almost any surface!).

3and my take on the trendy vine design. i put mine on my fridge. i also put some on a vintage suitcase.

 

and, my personal favorite…. X marks the spot!
i loooove the concept of making a whole wall into a treasure map!

4if i had a kid i would probably make their room into a giant treasure map!! :D 

 

more good news…. after over three months of living in my loft i've finalllllly decorated my bedroom.
the room itself is very big (larger than any living room i've ever had) and it has 5 huge windows, which is wonderful but it's been a tricky space to make "cozy".
here are a few photos of the decorations I've been working on…

  • Hi. I actually enjoyed reading your current blog post!. Good quality content. I might advise you to write articles much more often. By doing this, with such type of a helpful site I think that you could rank higher in the search engines 馃檪 . I also subscribed for your Rss. Keep up this excellent job!

  • And, I’ve usually seen Hanukkah cards that are more “fussy”, perhaps elegant. I wondered if I could do a clean and graphic card. I was really happy with how it turned out. I used a computer font, a Quickutz die and some gems. That’s it.

  • The vinyls are just as fabulous as you are! And I like the way your room turned out. Can I also put the stick-on’s on our window? Just like what you did with your shop. I think it will also look gorgeous!!
