Well we left off with my arrival in Contumaza, Cajamarca. (Read Part One Here) After a tiring journey I finally found a home and wow did I hit the jackpot! The space is actually two room divided by a wall that goes almost all the way to the ceiling.
Here is my Peace Corps Cribs video tour:
(For those reading this via email, you have to visit the actual webpage of my blog to see the video. Either on this post or under the “videos” tab.)
When you walk in the first room is my kitchen area, desk work space, and a craft/ class prep/ dinner table.
The craft/ class prep/ dinner table area is adorned with braids made out of yarn, photos, and a chalkboard that I am so proud of! Also, the “picture frames” are made by sticking washi tape onto the wall in decorative patterns.
Also, this yarn art piece is new and I am in love with it! It was so easy. Literally I just found a stick and slip knotted a bunch of yarn onto it and then trimmed the bottom and made this funky angle.
After a quick coat of green paint and some easy DIY decor the space feels like home again! The Big Move was an adventure and a test of patience to say the least, but now that I am here and all set up I can already tell great things are to come!
