I feel like I've been given a get outta jail free pass.
School is done. My days are not monopolized by a set work schedule.
NOT that where I was working was bad...I LOVED the people, loved the school...but my house/projects/garden/DIY crafts have suffered greatly all year.
There just isn't enough hours in every day to get things done after work.
Sad but true.
However, now I feel free as a bird. Free to set my own schedule and do the things I need to accomplish (even if it's just my "own" to-do list.)
I'm starting with rooms. Something will change in each of the rooms in the house. It might be small and insignificant, like getting rid of clutter/things not needed anymore...but in other rooms, the look will change as well.
The living room will get a dose of light buttery yellow paint once I nail down the right color. Grace's room will get some TLC (I'm living with a pre-teen who thinks first the world revolves around her, and second that the room is just one big closet, which means the closet is not the only place where clothes dwell....ah, she's got another thing comin' this summer and she doesn't even know it!), Evan's room will get a mild make-over, and so will our bedroom.
For example...in Grace's room, since she is SO into fashion and New York City (don't know why this particular city keeps popping up in her vocabulary...) we will try this simple craft with her desk.
Evan is a harder sell. As a boy, his room is a dilemma to me. He is right now into comics, and after I took him to see the new Avenger's movie a month ago, he's into playing with his iron man toys again.
So, I'm thinking this will be framed in his room somewhere...
and maybe I'll take the current wooden desk organizer he has and mod podge some comic book pages onto that too.
His will be a gradual process, but I'll post pics with both rooms when done.
All in all, I've got some big ideas floating around in my head, and it feels good, cause I've finally got my craft mojo back.
Oh, and a case of bronchitis, but thanks to my doctor friend in Sunday School class, I've got some meds for the weekend to help me feel better.
Tomorrow, it's gonna be 93 degrees. Yuck. I think I'll get some frames spray painted!
What are your weekend plans?
