I really like the use of buttons on this layout. Were they just glued on or did you use wire? I have a button hole punch that I've never used - not really sure what to do with it which stinks because I really like the look of buttons on a page. Any hints?
As Nancy figured out for herself, adding color can really change the energy of a space. White walls are hardly ever effectve in helping creativity. If you are feeling stale in your space, think about moving things around. You may find that changing up your space can serve you better. Take a look at what you have and see if the way you are organizing your stuff is working for you.
