My space.

You're about to be introduced to the room where I spend the majority of my time.

(I say half because the other side isn't completely done yet, so there will be a part two coming soon)

In this little space I tune out the world to write my book, make my necklaces, connect with you, and get hand cramps from typing so much. It's the place where I fall out of my chair and lay on the floor to recoup, and where husband knows to look for me when he gets home. Welcome.

Door knobs to tie the string that hangs my pictures

Mason jar picture frames

My sign from Barn Owl Primitives that reflects what I try to do each day. And what's that little pink mailbox, you ask? Mike and I leave sappy love notes for eachother in it.

My favorite new purchase I got last week! I still need to finish it, but it's a scratch off map. I use it to mark the places around the world that I send SHINE necklaces to. You could also use it to scratch off the places you've traveled to... I love it

My work space. And my reminder to keep calm everyday from Cait Create.

And there it is my friends...well, some of it anyways! Most of the things in my house and office I repainted or made myself. That's another way I release some creative energy. I love having light colors surrounding me because I feel like it positively affects my mood. I don't need things to be fancy, but perfectly designed so that I can escape into my own little world.

What's your must have in "your space?"

PS: Dont forget to link up DIY house projects, or rooms in your house you love on Friday!

***A lot of you keep asking where the map is from! I got it online from Urban Outfitters***

I am in love with your room! I love how much personality it has and especially love the "keep calm and SHINE on". You have inspired me to re-do our home office!

I adore this space! I am currently trying to create my own "creative space"... in the garage... but atleast its space! Super cute!

Ashley said...

I love this! The mason jars and the photos hanging with clothespins are the best personal touch. The whole space is so cute and comfortable! Very creative :)

Britt said...

I love your room!
I have a question... are those mason jar pictures just... pictures in mason jars? I know that's a silly question but I didn't know if you did anything else to them. I wanted to do that as a touch at a bridal shower!

Also where did you get that never never give up sign? That's my hubbys fav quote and I'd LOVE to get it for him!

Thanks!

Ash said...

LOVE this space! We are in the midst of repainting and extruding the ceiling in my office, so nothing is in there- BUT, I've got new plans for how to reorganize furniture, and maybe even a new spot for my bookcase...anyway, I LOVE that this looks "normal" and not heavily "designed"...just what I hope to do in the office :)

I love the mason jar frames! So simple and easy! Great idea!

simply megan. said...

love love love everything in here!!! Gives me soooo many great ideas!

Alli said...

Love this! I'm sad to say that there isn't a room that is "mine" exactly. I do have my own bedroom but it functions as a bedroom, an office, and a living room (meaning it is packed with needed, functional, and ugly furniture) because I live in an apartment as a grad student. I can't wait for the day that I can make a room my own!

Rachel @ My Naturally Frugal Family said...

I love your office and I love that scratch off map. I would love to get one of the US for my kids. Then they could scratch each state off as they visit.
You are just such a nifty/clever/crafty person.
