inspiration: craft storage

Not sure what came over me the other day, but I had this urge to start looking for some cute storage pieces for my craft room and now I can’t get it out of my head.  It’s an utter mess right now, mostly because I don’t have places to put things.  Here’s some things I am currently drooling over.

Aren’t these amazing? I am imagining labeling all the drawers with cute papers, throwing all my stamps, pens, paints, and other supplies in there.  It would be all kinds of amazing.  I’m going to have to start hitting up all of the local antique shops, because people don’t really ship things this large (or it’s super expensive). I hope I find something as amazing as these pieces soon!



Hello to everyone stopping by from Freckled Nest, Leigh-Ann is super awesome and sweet! And you guys, are so lovely – thanks for all the comments thus far!

I’ll take this moment to confess, I have a bit of an online shopping problem. I buy little random things online all. the. time. Ok, maybe not THAT much…but if I haven’t received a package in the mail in a while, I get kind of sad! Here are a few things I’ve bought recently that I love: 

This super cute ruffly dress from Delias. I bought it to wear to my cousin’s bridal shower this weekend 🙂 I think it needs a cute pair of yellow shoes, don’t you?

I thought this plate thing was awesome! One, there’s deer on it! Also, Chris is from Michigan. And the color of green is actually really pretty! I haven’t found a spot for it yet (since our woodsy room is green, it really won’t go there), but I kind of think it’s awesome!


Yet another dress I just ordered from Modcloth 🙂 I think it’s so cute, I haven’t received it yet so hopefully it’s worth the money and looks good. I want to wear it to my bridal shower or maybe my cousins wedding. Hmmm…decisions, decisions!



This is actually a panel of fabric! I randomly came across it while fabric browsing, and I bought this panel and was thinking I could frame it for some wall art? I’m not sure what else I could do with it to display the whole thing, it’s kind of large.



I found a super good deal on these beautiful Craspedia that you have probablly, like me, been seeing a lot of. I have wanted to incorporate them into our wedding since yellow is one of our colors. I ordered a bunch of them as a test to see how they look, and it far exceeded my expectations so I will definitely be ordering more 🙂

I took this last Friday off for an extra long weekend, because we had a few friends staying with us. Here are some snippets of my weekend – cell phone picture version 🙂 

A drive from Bakersfield to LA.

I was determined to find a good eatery in LA that had been feaured on Diners, Drive-ins & Dives. I made a list of all the places in LA, and we ended up at Oinkster. We also happend to see a famous person! Zach del la Rocha from Rage Against the Machine was eating solo and having a heated conversation on his cell phone, hah. (Ok, so I definitely wouldn’t have known who it was if it wasn’t for someone else who pointed him out, shh).

I had the Oinkster Pastrami and it was FAB. Note to self, order plaintains instead of fries next time (I tried a friend’s an they were AMAZING).

We ended Friday evening walking around Hollywood & Highland Ave.
We stayed the night in LA, then had a gigantic breakfast Saturday morning, followed by a pitstop at Ikea on the way back home.


The rest of the weekend was spent doing random things and thrifting 🙂


This caught my eye in a local antique store because Jimaie had just purchased something similar. I may or may not have picked it up for her to match 🙂
I didn’t buy this bitty-squirrel-on-a-nut but I thought it was hilar!

We also went to see peacocks at a local park, and I finally got a good picture of an albino peacock! We lured her in with french fries 🙂

My friend Mallory and I.

I hope you had a lovely weekend!! I promise to post more soon, including our guest room makeover 😀 yay!
