Hi friends! First of all – thanks for your words of encouragement about Kole and his preference concerning transportation. :) Makes me feel better to hear about other late walkers.
Everything is organized just like my pictures. Folders inside of folders. At one point I was contemplating going completely digital with my scrapbooking, but at the end of the day, digital scrapbooking just isn’t as fun for me. I love REAL supplies and REAL pictures and to be honest, I get tired of my computer! It’s why I’m never on facebook. I love to blog and to read other blogs, but I don’t enjoy being on my computer all day. Digital scrapbooking felt more like a chore vs. the fun, creative outlet that paper scrapbooking is for me. So I pretty much just use all of the supplies I’ve purchased/collected for other random things. Here are a few examples:
And of course, for all of my blog headers. (Ok – that just made me SO excited for Christmas!)
I painted my black shelf! Eeek!!! It was an experience to say the least. But it’s finished and I love the way it turned out and at some point I will get around to sharing pictures of it. I painted it before our trip to Utah and returned to one MESSY garage. I have to just say that my limited experience with spray paint has made me not a fan (remember my baskets?). And I don’t think it’s as easy as every one makes it appear! All of these “before and after” blog pictures that make it look like you just quickly spray a little paint and wa-la! New beautiful furniture! Not so. At least for me. I spray painted the outside of the shelf and hand painted the bead board backing and I had such a better experience with the regular paint and brush. I feel more in control of what I’m doing and created much less of a mess with the regular paint. Plus it’s easier for touch-ups. But I’ve found that I paint about as well as I cook so who am I to talk? Hope I’m not offending any spray painting digital scrapbookers out there by spouting off about my preferences! ;) Anyway. The shelf is done and I’m happy with it. Just wasn’t happy with the mess I made in the process.
So today after I unpacked from our trip, I pulled almost everything out of our garage…
and mopped up all of that spray paint dust! And then I felt much better about spray painting. And about life in general. Because cleaning does that to me.
