Alright, I've got umpteen million projects on deck right now. It's almost too much. ALMOST. I love feeling creative and find that when I've got the ideas, I really need to run with them. I like making time for myself to actually DO these things. I got a little bit done today, but let's face it - I wasn't lighting the world on fire. I did laundry, cleaned up, played with the kids, more laundry, wiped down the kitchen cupboards, redecorated above the cabinets....did I mention laundry??? OY. I should be tired, but really, my mind is swirling. Here's what I'm thinking about:
- Sewing Lydia's quilt for her big-girl bed
- Painting a basket for her room
- Making tissue paper flowers for her room
- Hot gluing letters on canvases for Max
- Hanging Max's pics in his room
- Making 'white board' for craft area
- Hanging decor over sewing table
- Spraying storage boxes
- Adding fabric to front of storage boxes
- Spraying flower pots
- Making wreath for entryway
- Redecorating entryway table
- Painting giant fork and spoon
- Sewing kitchen valances
- Painting kitchen chairs
- Recovering kitchen chair cushions
- Making pillows for family room
Woah. That was exhausting just going through that list! And I know I'm missing a bunch of stuff. I kinda think I might need my own tool kit. You know, the basics - a few screwdrivers, a drill, a level, hammer, sanding blocks, etc. Steve's got tons of tools, but I can't really find what I need most of the time. I'm thinking my own set that's all PINK! That way, they'd be easy to find if something strays away from the pack. Does a pink tool kit exist??? I may need to look into this further.
The list above might not take long for most people, particularly if they've got great tools! But let's not forget - I've got 2 munchkins. Two very busy, adorable, snuggly, creative, hungry munchkins. They keep me on my toes! So my creative time is slim - I'll need to make the most of it when it comes along.
I got the fabric for my kitchen curtains/chair cushions/family room pillows. I LOVE the fabric! I really like that it's going to help with the neutral palette I'm going for, so I can add color throughout the seasons without too much hassle.
The florals will be in the kitchen/eating area, and the fun words/numbers/polka dots will be family room pillows.
