More Cardboard Furniture

After moving the night-stand that we had by our couch into the bedroom to lift the tv a few weeks ago, I decided to make another little stand out of my arsenal of cardboard boxes so I could put my pretty lamp on it.
I used a long rectangular box (the shipping box from a starbucks tea sampler and organizer ) and a thin open square box (the kind that department stores put clothes in at christmas when you have them gift wrap it). I wrapped the rectangle one in our pretty brown wrapping paper and left the top box as it was. Some squares of packing tape and an uneven mount later, I ended up with this.

My life this week

I had this interesting idea the other day – mostly because Alex keeps telling me that my art is awesome and sell-able – to revamp my storefront. I’m aiming to have everything done and ready by March (or May?) since most of the ideas are still formulating themselves and I have a lot of work to do, but I’m really excited (and enjoying using my Fireworks CS5 trial before it expires).
Tonight I have my art class, and I’ll leave early because it gets dark – but I’ll probably finish my night scene and start another. I’ll also need to buy more canvasses. O:)
Earlier today, I made a little light-stand because we moved the other end table into the bedroom two weeks ago and put the tv on it so we could stay in bed while we were sick. I think it turned out nicely. I wrapped the bottom box in wrapping paper and left the top box the way it was. Naturally, I put it on uneven but…..it looks nice. đŸ˜›
I did this *after* I swept the floors that have been collecting dust since we were sick a few weeks ago. I know, that’s lame – but now I feel super accomplished.
Later this week, it’s going to get really fun, because I have friends coming up and we’re going to try and get makeovers sometime on the weekend. Which will be awesome because…I’ve never had one before.
In the meantime, I’m going to go paint my nails black so all of the paint that gets stuck in them tonight (that takes about a week to get out) won’t be too obvious.
