a little giveaway..

We spent our weekend re-painting the kids' room. I was thinking to paint the room in such a way that one corner is for the kids and the other corner would be my workspace since I do not have an extra room for myself. I was thinking along the grey + either 1. green, 2. orange or 3. turquoise color combination.

Since it is the beginning of the new year. I would like to do a little giveaway - If you like the orange linen clutch (yes, I made 2 of the same design) from my last post, come join in the fun and guess which wall color combination I went for? You'll have until Fri, Jan 18th at midnight (PST) to leave a comment. This is my very first giveaway on my blog and I hope you will enjoy this little handmade gift from me. Come say hello folks! :D

After painting, I managed to rearrange and reorganizing my work desk, scrapbook and fabric stash. Sigh, I sure have a lot of stuff. (I probably give out some RAKs soon). I can't believe the room is looking so neat and organized now and I am so enjoying it. I can sit in the room the whole day (I wish!). The smell of the new wall paint plus the burning lavender aromatherapy oils filled the room. Of cos, the most fun part would be decorating the room. I picked a few of my favorite layouts and got them framed. They're going up on the wall soon plus a couple of DIY wall art frames like these...

How not to frame this cute little card?

Isn't it a good idea to frame one of your favorite fabric? :)

I am loving all these white frames against the contrasting wall colors.

Till later...
