it’s 4 am.

For some reason, this morning I woke up way too early. I looked at my phone and it was only 4 am. Bleh! I have no idea why I got up that early?! All I know is that I couldn’t fall back asleep. Physically, my body was exhausted, but mentally, I had so many ideas running in my head.

Thus, I decided to get up, stretch, and create.

*edit* I completely forgot to credit my layout toย Sketchy Thursday. I’ve always loved their sketches, and I thought I’d use their very last one for inspiration. I’m totally going to miss their sketches. Here’s the sketch I used:

…and here’s my take on it:

…and just like before, I mixed old and new. Most of this one is new though. It’s loaded with Crate Paper‘s Paper Heart collection. I love the soft color palette to these papers. Plus, those tile chipboard letters are a major win.

On another note, someone emailed me and asked me where I work. I thought I’d share what goes on around me on a daily basis at Our Paper Place. Here’s a peek into what work looks like for me as of right now:

Of course, everything changes weekly. The displays, the products, the sample projects — everything changes when I say so, haha. ๐Ÿ™‚ Right now, my infatuation lies in trying to find new fixtures to merchandise products and maximize space. *sigh* Lots of work to do before I head down to CHA at the end of this month.
