my new apartment

I moved into my new apartment about 11 days ago...

Seems like an eternity ago because I've done so much to it (with the help of parents, family and friends).  The craft room is a room I'm trying to tackle on my own because at the end of the day, I am the only one that knows what I use most often and what layout will make the most sense for me.

I'm slowly starting to sort through the boxes of stuff, and I'm trying to make zones for easier organizing.  I have a paper zone, an idea book/magazine zone, stamp zone, etc.  I have a lot of things to still sort through, but I'm feeling like I can finally breathe a bit.

Which is why I gasped in sheer delight when I discovered an adorable blog called 36th Avenue.  I think she is a fellow Latina blogger, so I'm really excited to delve deep into her posts to see what other beautiful things I can find.

One of her posts had this picture of a no-sew curtain detail using fabric pieces.

I don't have fabric laying around but I think I might just have to make a stop at a craft store to do something like this for myself.  I was thinking of using ribbon, but I soon realized that my ribbon costs would probably greatly increase the cost of this project. 

Because I'm in an apartment, I can't really experiment with paint or creative wall hangings (partly because most of my walls are plaster - what a mess) I have to get creative.

I'm going to take tonight to explore some color palettes that I like, and then I'll have some fun trying to recreate something similar tomorrow after work. 

I'm not sure how much fabric to buy, so I'm sure I'll over buy...but better safe than sorry, right?!
