Studio Updates and a Holiday Give Away from Poppin

Remember when I got that really beat up desk at Goodwill and made it over? That spurred a whole series of updates to our studio space. We're getting really organized and I think everything looks so clean and pretty now!

I'll be sharing some tutorials soon, but I'm sure a few of you long-time readers will be able to spot a few of the big changes off the bat!

We wanted to both add and take away color from the room. This new inspiration board is probably my favorite colorful addition.

I had a piece of homasote board cut down to fit the wall space between the window and the wall and then (just like in this project) I upholstered it in pale mint linen.

We're also working to streamline our filing system and to declutter our office supplies. I am a big believer in making the every day stuff as pretty as possible, if only to help mundane chores feel exciting. :)

Poppin sent us a few new office supplies this month to help with the makeover. I love everything Poppin makes - and have for a long time! Everything is modern and beautiful, and it all works so well! Their pens are my very favorite (with their all-white scissors being a close second place!).

They also make a new heavier-weight pen (mine's in chrome, below) and it's beautiful. They make it in a really pretty gold too!!

Poppin has generously offered to give away two $100 gift certificates today! Their products make the perfect stocking stuffers or gifts for office mates!

Their new line of metallic notebooks are perfectly classic, but so holiday-worthy!
