At this point, I am still trying to pull together some of the many ideas that are bouncing around in my head to create a significant post that won't bore you to death. So now, in the meantime, I will just share some photos of what has been going on around here.
At my house:
I've been focused on painting my kitchen, living room, hallway and stairway. It was a ton of work, but it is finished now, except for the new countertops, which have been ordered. Yay! I am also continuing to delete anything that is unnecessary and really think about how I use each space in my house. I am definitely not an expert in the area of decorating, but I think it's always interesting to know how other people deal with the concept of "home" and how they make a home, so I'm sharing my thoughts here. Decorating and arranging my home was my only creative outlet for many years. And decorating on a budget (always and forever!) requires even more creativity. So, definitely not expert words (or pictures) of advice, just sharing what I know.
|Clearing clutter, adding another seating area and storing all of my ugly dishes out of sight has been the focus now that the painting is finished. Now, just waiting on those countertops!|
In the studio: I've been gathering works in progress to finish, making art with Peanut and Baby G. and re-working a finished project that has been bugging me (explanation below).
Oh, my. I can't get enough of those baby fingers and toddler toes!
Have a great rest of the week! Juli
