I’m so SO excited to be starting Project Life this month – today, in fact! 🙂 Project Life has taken the scrapbooking world by storm (just in case you’ve never heard of it) and having admired the kits and bits and bobs that you can get for so long, I’m taking the plunge and starting my first scrapbooking adventure.

Little house trinket shelves
I’ve had my eye on these little house shelves for some time now, and have been planning to customise them with pretty fabrics.

These little houses are perfect for storing little trinkets, and I picked fabrics with small prints so that you can see enough pattern in the back.
