Messy project Monday + Terrific post Tuesday!

Pinspiration has struck again. I combined two different pins (I was feeling a little adventurous!) and had a bit too much fun! The living room is a disaster zone now, but the roomies are gone for a few days so I’m in the clear.


I printed out this template and traced it onto cardboard al la empty cereal box so that i could cut my super adorable elephant!

Isn't he cute!

Isn’t he cute!


Next I took out my nifty envelope of magazine scrapes and my Elmer’s glue (gotta stick to the classics) and the fun mess good times began!

The living room floor has never looked so good!

The white icky looking mixture is one part glue and one part water. Squishing it all together was kind of cathartic….

Here is the final product:photo 4

New apartment Inspirations!

So my roomie and I finally signed leases for next semester. We are the proud occupants of a REAL LIFE APARTMENT! Wooo Hooo! *** Insert no more Dorm life dance** This new apartment is the beginning of so many new and exiting things. Like decorating. Hehe. I should start saving money right now because I spent all day on Pintrest looking for ideas.

I also started to think about what ‘space’ means. Now that I am going to have a space that is all for me I want to make it a place where I feel inspired and creative. Space is what we can manipulate- it is we choose to surround ourselves in and the mood we wish to exist in. So I started to think of my favorite things… Star Trek, Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Dead Presidents (don’t ask), ect; and thought it would be cool if I could make my space reflect these interests.

I started with Star Trek. I picked 10 of my favorite quotes and filled up a page. I had a little too much fun formatting and ended up making a poster.


I really like the way it turned out and I think I will make more for my other interests!
