Room Update

Hey there. Well there hasn't been much crafting going on here lately. I've been so busy with the new room! Plus I'm one of those weird creative types that has to have a clean working surface before crafting. However I do have this card I made a few weeks ago I wanted to share:

I broke out the Look Up! banners. I know some people think it takes awhile to cut these out, but because they are just straight cuts, it really takes less time then you would think.

Several of you asked for updates on the room as we went along. We've pretty much finished, but I still need to add some more bins and curtains. I'm thinking of some really fun fabric for those.

Here's chase adding my bookshelves. I love open shelving. I really wish I had some in my kitchen. Oh and do you like that light fixture. I just love it and it was only $30 at Lowes! Score!
Here's the latest. Again I still have a long way to go, but we're getting there! It seems like the last leg of getting everything in place takes the longest.
----------

We are gearing up for the next Practicing Creativity release! I have to tell you I'm SOOOO excited about this one.
