Out of the Loveshack and into the house

It has been a really cold Fall and it's shaping up to be an even colder Winter, so I decided to move my scrapping stuff into the house. I love the Loveshack and it's been a really great space to create, but.. I feel really disconnected from the rest of the house when I'm out there. Now, don't get me wrong, sometimes that's a good thing! But I realized that I really haven't been doing any scrapping lately and the idea of going out there in the cold and hanging out by myself had become less and less appealing. So when Jim suggested we move my stuff into the house I thought about it for a few weeks and then agreed to take over Rachel's room as my new scrap space. It's kind of bitter sweet to use her room, I guess that means she's a "guest" now when she comes to stay since she doesn't have her own room anymore. So sad, but I guess I have to let go sometime. Once I moved everything in I started looking at the walls and wanted to do something to make it more "creative" of a space. I had a bunch of Theresa Collins chipboard covers in red from a project that Tiffany had done a few years back that I had an idea for. The red didn't match the paint on the walls so I used some papers from DCWV to cover them and then added some black and white pictures. A little bit of ribbon and some help from my husband to hang them evenly and I was all done within a day or two. Now that I'm in the house I am finding myself going up there to organize and play around a bit, I guess moving inside was a good idea after all.
