Hello Blog! Hang on, let me clear those cobwebs off...
I haven't forgotten you, I did a stupid thing and decided my next blog post would be pictures of my newly arranged den of filth and clutter - er, uh - I mean...office/craft room. heh heh...heh.
My intent was good and wholesome. See using my logic, I was excited to get it done, and that excitement would speed the process, and then I could share my glee with you all! Cue the sunshine and birds chirping!
Except - its not done. And I'm not even talking major renovations, no paint, no big projects, just a couple new bookshelves and re-arranging things. And...its not done. Why you ask?
Simple, there's no paint, no big projects. I'm still staring at white walls, and old carpet, and a problem with windows/vent layouts that keep foiling my plans. So no matter what I do, I'm just not feelin' it. I've moved things 3 times, and still don't "like" it. I'm a bit of a perfectionist, amongst other things ;)
BUT...it does look better. Good enough I *might* even open the door when we have company over. Just might. Let's not get carried away here! Before now it was "that room" that you'd see them walk towards, panic, sprint over, throw your body across the doorway panting, while saying "that? that's...nothing, let's go into the KITCHEN!!" praying they didn't see anything.
See, I LOATHE clutter, it makes me insane, I can't think if there's clutter. But...I'm horridly prone to it. I'm one of those "start a project NOW" people. Who cares if there are 3 others out, I thought of it and I have to do it NOW before I lose my inspiration.
Now, normally, this technique works well. The juices are flowing, you're excited and inspired and things come about easily. Project is finished, you have an overwhelming sense of accomplishment, and off you go!
...then you have a 3 year old. :) And 'inspiration' is always interrupted. ;) And somehow I'm still trying to adapt. You'd think I'd have caught on by now, but - apparently - I'm a slow learner. To compensate for this flaw, I try to keep it contained to one room. In hopes of preventing my husband from having a heart attack. ...I'm not sure it works.
oh dear...I just thought of a new layout...I think I'm moving bookshelves again!
