Advent Prep

In the past few years I’ve been drawn to using a lot of white around here at Christmas to try to cut down on looking cluttered. Our apartment isn’t the biggest of urban dwellings and it can easily look messy…especially around the holidays! So I have some projects in mind for this year that are primarily white.

The first one I started yesterday: an advent calendar.

These numbers will be added to a banner in the living room. I really like how this is coming together and I’m hopeful that my lots-of-white strategy contributes to a successful optical illusion of a spacious holiday season. ;)

About robyn

I stopped teaching Kindergarten in 2005 to become the mom of two crazy boys here in Brooklyn. At first I thought being a stay at home mom meant that I needed to pour all my time and energy directly into my sons, but I realized somewhere along the way that being a rockstar mom meant not only taking good care of my boys, but also taking good care of myself. And taking good care of myself means pursuing something creative...just about everyday. I started Made In Brooklyn to motivate myself in my creative goals as well as share my work with others and perhaps inspire them in their own creative journeys.
