What I do right now
You know what I do right now?
I take the children to the doctor.
Like at least 4 times in the last 2 weeks.
I am so over it.
Everything else on my want to do list? Never gets done. Because I am visiting the doctor again. I see him more than my husband at this point!
I picked up a pair of shadowboxes at the flea market for a dollar last weekend. I took a before photo for you, but then it got deleted. They are from hobby lobby and they had pink polka dotted backgrounds with the letters L and I in them.
The shape instantly reminded me of these shadowboxes . I was not at all sure I could get them open, since hobby lobby didn't sell them as frames, but as "art".
After much encouragement with an exacto knife and a science spatula, I was in.
Then I had to decide what on earth to put in them. Every idea I had led to a *missing* item that was nowhere to be found. (I have clearly organized myself into chaos instead of organization in the sewing room.) Just when I was about to give up I spotted two prize rosettes on my bulletin board.
I smacked some scrapbook paper on to cover up where I ripped off the letters, glued in the rosettes with a Martha Stewart chipboard animal and up they went in the bathroom.
They are cute.
But someday I might find those missing items and put them in there instead.
What I really want to talk about is pinterest.
When I go back and look at my boards there I have pinned all sorts of white, white, white rooms. We just remodeled this house two years ago, and I had everything the way I wanted it. Why do I pin all this white stuff? When I was doing Sammi's room I tried like hell to make it white and beautiful and it just felt HORRIBLE in there. So I painted it a dark gray.
And yet, I still pin all things white.
I am left wondering if I should try a much whiter palette again or if I should just decide they are nice to look at but not to live with.
What do you think? Do you pin stuff you could actually live with? Or just dream about living with?
P.S. David says "pinterest is like crack." That's right, my HUSBAND is drinking the pinterest kool-aid.
