Is it only me?
But instead of turning this post into a gripe session, how about a quote?
"We shape our environments; thereafter they shape us." -Winston Churchill
OK, now I'm guessing Mr. Churchill wasn't talking about his living room, but if you think about it, it applies to our homes as well.
Create an inspiring, nurturing and personal space, and in return it will inspire, nurture and feed your soul.
Have I said this before? Life is too short to live in ugly spaces.
But finding the time for me to make my basement a little less ugly had been a challenge. Ha! I have spent so much time in that space priming and painting and painting, and still, I am no nearer to having it done. The paneling is sucking up the paint, and for some reason I am not able to make much progress. Can I have a ERGH!!!
Now, on the school front, I am very much enjoying the classes and getting back to school. I am inspired and overwhelmed at the same time. I feel like I am exposing myself. I have worked hard on honing whatever skills I have acquired, and now by going to school, I feel like I have to, finally, put my money where my mouth is. And in the end it is still that little girl inside me saying "What if they don't like it".
But the up side is, my homework consists of looking at and clipping pretty pictures, working with colored pencils and playing with fabric swatches. So it could be worse. Oh and last week I also found out that the school has study abroad in Paris trips. AWESOME!, I can't afford to make this years trip, but who knows, there is always next time!
