I love the website apartmenttherapy.com. I normally browse a couple times a week. I love to look at all the house tours most of all. I noticed last week that they were doing a room for color contest. I figure, my whole house is a work in progress. That’s no reason to not enter! You see, half my house is in boxes. I was suppose to move to Santa Monica in June, then July and now it’s October. I’m still in Vegas though. Such is life. Always pressing forward, because life is a work in progress. Nothing is perfect. Nobody is perfect. Nobody will ever be perfect here. Plus, change is inevitable.

Anyways, I spend a good amount of time cleaning up my room. I had to move a bunch of boxes into the hallway. I staged my bookshelves, because most of the books are packed. I even unpacked a few pictures and hung things onto the walls. I did not feel like it was ready for a photo shoot, but I still tried to get it as picture, perfect as possible.

You can check out my room and vote for me here. I hope you like me room. It may not be picture perfect, but it’s a good combination of my boyfriend and myself.

The hardest part of this whole photo shoot was trying to decide what pictures to use for my submission. I probably could have used a second opinion.

What do you think? What’s your room like? What color combinations are inspiring you? I use to live in Seattle and sometimes I feel like I brought Seattle to Vegas in my bedroom.

My desk is a mess

Update with a picture

I need help!! My Desk is a mess and has been for months. I am so sick and tired of cleaning up and feeling like I am getting no where. Everyday, there is more junk in my house for me to decide to keep, throw away, donate or recycle. I have to say that I am having a harder time doing the recycling, then I would like to admit. I do try and recycle other things in other ways. For instance, I made my own file box out of a box from costco. I will post a tutorial on it in the next couple of days. It was really easy. Only took 2 hour and is uber cute. Plus it was practically free. I only paid for the mod podge. Next time I will be making wheat glue instead. I never knew about it until my extra hippy sissy told me about it. More pictures to follow soon. Have a good night and dont stay up too late. Your health is the most important thing.

Here are some close ups of stuff in my desk area……..
