I have always wanted to be crafty. I am not because I have very little creativity. I walk through craft stores and get completely overwhelmed. Everything there looks so cute, so useful, and yet so disjointed. I have no idea how to put it all together to make something beautiful. Sometimes incredibly crafty and creative people take mercy on/advantage of the poor souls like me and make kits and tutuorials to buy. The problem with these is that they expect the buyer to know at least the basics of crafting, and they are very expensive. I am into crafty looks- I am NOT into expensive. I have never had a huge budget to expend on trivial things like craft supplies and decorations, which has served as my main excuse to not get started into projects of any kind. Also- with two active girls, a baby on the way, a husband who likes a little lovin' now and again, a part time job from home, and time-taking church obligations- I find that I have very little spare time to devote to craftiness. The list of excuses can go on and on and on.
Well, this AMAZING world of blogging has taken all of these excuses away from me! I love it and hate it at the same time. There are TONS of incredible blogs out there that show super cute projects that can be done quickly and inexpensively. Most of them don't take much money, and use the kind of supplies I either have in my house, or could very easily obtain. They provide step by step and easily understandable instructions. Basically- they show me how to make my house a more beautiful and endearing place to be without the expenditure of much time, money, or effort.
My motto this year is to Go and Do. I want to use this to motivate myself to battle by idleness and hesitance to do the things that I know can and should be done.
This silly little blog is going to be my space to put all of the cute ideas that I see all over the blogosphere that I want to do in my home some time this year- or just in my life. I hope to compile here the pictures from other blogs that show what I want to do, and maybe my finished products of the ones I actually undertake. I in no way want to take away the credit of those talented women. I can pretty much guarantee that NONE of these ideas will be from my own head. I will try and post where the ideas came from- but I already have some pictures in a little file, and some of them came from places I have completely forgotten about. I will do my best to let you know what the original source of inspiration was.
Essentially this will just be my place to organize all the do-able crafts and ideas that I come across, and to maybe show off what I accomplish in the end.
Maybe it will inspire those few souls who venture along here as well. . .
