Room Imitation

Hi, lovebugs!  :-)  Happy Sunday!

I hope you all are having a fabulous weekend.  Today I have quite a bit on my agenda -- grocery shopping, birthday shopping, and craft-making time.  I am in the process of making something for someone, and it is definitely taking longer than I had anticipated.  I'll post the project up here as soon as I'm finished!  ;-)

Today we are going to start a new series on the blog called Room Imitation.  I recently was introduced to Olioboard, a site where you can make mood boards for a room.  It is quite addictive, and within twenty-four hours I had already upgraded to the pro version so that I could use the budget, text, and color scheme tools.  You'll see what I mean if you visit the site.  But really, there are plenty of awesome features for the free version as well, so you should definitely check it out!  Anyway, Room Imitation will feature a room and an itemized breakdown of some of the most important aspects of the space.  It'll be fun, and I think that Sunday should be a series day, so we'll try this out and see how it feels.

    1. Me, too! I love the look of a rustic table -- but I am torn between that and a super modern one. Hmmmmm.
