Well, Hello.

This poor blog has been a victim of life around here.  It’s been busy, scary and fun.

Busy? Well, that’s obvious. Everyone is busy these days.  In addition to a good bit of graphic design work, I’ve completed, well about 98% completed, the room makeover I hinted to a while back.  It’s looking smashing. 🙂 It’s functional and we all love it!  I’ll be sharing soon. I promise. Lots of DIY stuff to share.

Scary? Well, that is still an on going deal.  Our daughter, Emily, suffered two concussions while playing soccer.  Because the two events were within 3 weeks of each other she has been dealing with “concussion syndrome“.  The only real treatment for this is cognitive rest. No tv, no cell-phone, no computer, etc.  She has been out of school, as part of her recovery, for nearly 30 days now.  She has tried to go half-days off and on, but the stimulation triggers her headaches.  She is improving, albiet very, very slowly.

Fun? Life is fun. Right?  I have been trying to just enjoy life and it’s been good to back off the blog a bit.  I’ve been missing it and really do want to return and find a balance between living life and blogging.  Redoing that room was so much fun and since Emily has been around a lot, she’s become my co-designer.  That has been a lot of fun.

So, besides all that, where can you find me?  I’m pretty addicted to Pinterest. (See my follow me button in the side bar.) I try and find at least a few minutes each day, mostly in the evenings to explore and find inspiration. I am an inspiration junkie!!

The boards I’m loving the most right now?

The style related ones. I love getting inspirations for outfits.  Because most of the photos are regular people, I think it’s better than a fashion magazine. It’s been good to push myself to try new color combinations and hone in on the styles I like to wear.

I’ve also been doing some hand lettering on chalkboards. (And of course, following those pins on Pinterest.)

Here’s my fall mantle.  I loved doing it.  Brings me back to hand lettering days for Journalism/Advertising classes. I went even bigger for my Christmas mantle. I’ll share that next time. 😉

Well, I guess I’ll end here. Emily just woke up, found me on the computer and said she might pass out because I’m ACTUALLY blogging.  Ha, ha!
