I’ve been toying with the idea of a new series lately- combining my love for graphic design with fabulous things for the home. Graphic design is hugely inspiring for me, so why not translate it into an inspiring space? To kick it off, I’m using a print by The Heads of State that brings to life all of the business cards that were described in (one of my absolute favorite books) The Great Gatsby!
My apartment pretty much looks like a tornado hit it these days. And by that, I mean it looks like a tornado tore through it, leaving only destruction in its path. Or at least, I’m sure that’s how my mom would describe it. Anyways, that’s what happens when I’m stressed annnnd having mystery illness problems- my apartment is the first thing to go by the wayside. Whoops. Add to that the fact that I recently got some gorgeous craft books from Miz Justina Blakeney and the fact that it’s tax time (which means papers everywhereeee) and it’s becoming scary even for me.
To (attempt) to control some of the clutter, I’ve been searching for bookends that might help corral my unruly papers and notebooks that seem to be multiplying like rabbits lately. Here are a few of my faves:
…2 new additions to my gallery wall. Any guesses as to what’s new?
And more new stuffs (which actually matches one of the new additions to my art wall), I have a new header and a new listing over in my Cargoh shop! Here’s a preview of the listing, go check it out- and look at the rest of the site… I dare you to get out without finding fun things to buy!
For today’s installment of #altathome, I’ve rounded up 5 of my favorite “to-do’s” for home DIY projects. Hopefully these are as inspiring to you as they are to me: I’m tackling at least one of them this weekend!
A couple weekends ago, my parents came over and helped me start framing and hanging up all of the artwork for my “gallery” wall. What’s awesome is that, not only did I start filling a big ugly empty wall in my living room, I also had a teensy bit of revenge on my next door neighbors (whose music plays so loudly said pictures shake on the wall, Mary Poppins-style). It still needs a lot of work — and I need more frames, so keep your eyes peeled– but here’s the work in progress!
Having some mom and me time today while she’s on winter break, and we’re off to Ikea first! What do you think, should I get stuff to make this epic cat tree from Ikeahackers, or would that be super cat lady-like?
Only thing I’m worried about is having a 17-lb ball of fury come flying down and onto my back/head. Maybe it’s not the best idea after all…
