Scraproom / Craftroom updates ♥♥

I've been working on revamping my room for a few months now and I have to say.....I LOVE IT!!!  The decluttering process has been long, but I've gotten rid of about half my things and it feels great.  Being in a room dedicated mainly to Project Life is amazing.  My wall color remains "Whole Wheat" which is my favorite.  I kept the same white furniture and re-arranged it.  I took the desk out of the middle of the room and lowered it back to a regular desk which is waaaaaay better!!!  My accent color is now Tiffany Blue ...aaahhh I love everything "Tiffany" ♥♥

I will be making a video once it's all complete but for now, I wanted to share some pictures of a few things I posted on Instagram last night.

Wanted to wish all my followers a HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!  May your day be full of love, happiness and lots of blessing.

***Before I get going, I wanted to share a GIVEAWAY that Emma from My Creative Time is hosting PLUS a sale!!!  Follow her blog hop starting HERE,leave a comment and enter to win an HSN PROJECT LIFE BLUSH EDITION!!!  How awesome is that?  The giveaway ends Sunday, May 12, 2013 at midnight PST!!!  Good LUCK!!!

As to my Ikea Expedit unit:   I originally had the pink Expedit cubes.  One evening, I had a vision and came up with the idea to cover them.    The best part is, I already had the fabric!!  I made eight covers and sixteen ruffles.  I must say.....I have become a ruffle expert lol    I'm in love with the ADORABLE Shabby Chic look.  My Expedit has become my favorite piece in the room and it's the very first thing you see when you walk in ♥♥  (I will be making a video soon on how I altered them)
This next picture features my desk top.  LOVE these organizational items from Home Goods.  I would have preferred them in white but they actually look great in black and if I get bored later, I can always paint them.....  Inside the drawers I have general inks, small embellishments, Zing embossing powers and glitters, acrylic stamp blocks and roller date stamps.  The middle unit has an opening at the bottom which is where I keep my wood veneers in a clear plastic organizer.
On top of one of the cubbies, I have all my Hero Arts ink.  As I mentioned in a past post, I'm in LOVE with these inks.......they are by far the BEST in the market ♥♥ 
And last but not least, these ADORABLE Mini Latte bowls from Anthropologie.  Thanks to my scrappy friend Caz, I picked these up and I LOVE THEM.  I have two yellow ones, two teal ones, two orange ones and two white ones.  They are great for storing little goodies like these GORGEOUS NEON SEQUINS ♥♥♥    They sit right in front of my desk on a picture ledge from Ikea. (you can see them in the desk top picture above) 

I really love having everything organized and labeled....it makes such a huge difference.
