favorite homemade spaces

some of my favorite little places in our makeshift home here on campus. These projects all added up to fit in the double digits ever shrinking college budget


wrapper’s paradise

I went on a bit of a wrapping spree this holiday season. I find that when faced with options, I tend to buy every type of wrapping paper offered. its a fetish.

I bought all my fun wrapping paper at marshalls this year, i found some great deals. I always use packing brown paper for a simple and classic look. this year i wrapped boxes in a patterned paper and then cut a band of contrasting paper to wrap around the center with a bow around the band.

and i loved this dainty little string to tie up presents with, gives it a homemade look. Oh how i love this season!

little christmas projects

thanksgiving is over and that means one thing: its time for christmas — and with no objections from the thanksgiving spotlight advocates!

today we went on a little adventure to the tree farm and picked out  the perfect tree.  after we posed with the snowmen (proudly in our twenties) then took it home! Then mom and I adventured into our two boxes of whimsy (the rest are stored from moving) and began our day of decoration, and I only broke three candy canes and two strands of lights, success !

posted are a few pics of our DIY christmas decor projects in progress–
