9.20.06


It's Fall INSIDE here. :D The temperature outside is still in the 90's, but the decor is finally all out.
I love decorating for Fall. It's warm and cozy, fits the style and colors of our home, yet isn't so much
that you dread putting it all away, ha.

I just finished reorganizing my scrapbooking space...again. I needed more SHELF space but
didn't want to hang shelves on the wall. We had this big hutch that used to be on the buffet in our breakfast room. I didn't like it because it was hunter green, wasn't being used, and just seemed like too much in there.
So it's been sitting in the garage. When I decided I needed more shelf space, I thought this hutch would work perfectly. So I painted it a dark cherry red color and just love how it turned out! I placed it on top of a Pottery Barn black console table that we already had. I love my space! It's all red and black with some white and cream. You can see pictures and all of the details here. :D

Ok, tonight and tomorrow are all about getting ready for the scrapbooking retreat, so I won't be blogging. Courtney and I have about an hour and a half drive to the retreat, so we needed something fun to listen to on the drive. (besides my obscene amount of 80's music, haha) I burned to a CD 4 interviews from the Diva Craft Lounge World Talk Radio show and we'll be listening to those on the way! (Stacy Julian, Ali Edwards, Elsie Flannigan, and Thena Smith)

Note: The mug that I altered in the previous post is from Target, thermos and cooler section. (answering a comment/question)

Have a WONDERFUL week!

OMG!! I love that!! It looks sooooo organized and nice. I also like the small white side shelves you have your brads, buttons and floss on. Doesn't it feel great when you can see all that you have and it helps to be more creative.

Also....I love how you have your MM rub on words in a jar...good idea I may use also.

Jen...you have helped me before and I am very grateful for that. If you have a moment....can you email me how do you put a link in your text paragraphs...like how you have "click here to see your shelf" in the middle of a sentence.
Thanks. Scrappersher@aol.com

You really should be a decorator, you missed your calling! I am getting that bug again to redo my craft room. I want to have stamping area, scrapbook area and now beading area, my latest obsession! great job on your space!

Jen said...

Your scrap space is GORGEOUS!!! Now, is it that neat all of the time, or just for the phots? Come on, fess up!!! LOL
Love your fall decor too. I plan on putting mine out this weekend. And, it is autumn in NY - in the low 60's today.

Looks awesome Jen! You have outgrown the old armoire, eh? ;)

Have a great time at the retreat!

Heidi said...

Love the color you painted the hutch--it looks great! Cute room! :)

Carla said...

Jennifer, you crack me up -- reorganizing the SB stuff AGAIN. I just wish I were quite so organized....GOOD THINKING about burning Diva Craft Lounge to CD. I'll have to try that, since I'm getting ready for a road trip myself. So -- How was the retreat?

Heather said...

ROFL . .. I had the same exact thought as Shaunte! I didn't know you'd "spread out".

Looks great!
