I have blog envy

Posted on: May 9, 2012

I’ve been spending some time (…and by “some” I mean “a lot”) on Pinterest, and I keep seeing these lovely blogs filled with great ideas and neat tutorials and professional-looking photos of uncluttered homes.  I wish I could make one of those!

But I can’t seem to get my photos to come out like that, there’s always so much STUFF in mine.  And I’m more filled with ideas than execution, and more raw materials than ideas.  I keep thinking, “There’s GOT to be something cool I could do with that! But what?”

I really shouldn’t worry about those, though, because I’ve got SO many interests as it is!  In the past few weeks, I’ve been brainstorming and working on some sewing projects — pillows, adjusting my daughter’s clothes, etc.; gotten some cardmaking supplies — I’ve always wanted to do it, and then I got a load of stamps and inks from someone through Craigslist and now want to get into it; and I’ve gotten several furniture/decor items at garage sales and such to refinish/update.  I also would love to start making Cabbage Patch doll clothes, and I want to somehow upholster my daughter’s bedroom door to make it more sound-proof — she’s a touchy sleeper — and I’ve decided I need (and have room for) a dressing table.  I have two years’ worth of receipts, paid bills, bank statements, and other various papers that need to be organized and stored.  I’ve decided I need some kind of storage place for mittens and other such gear in the mudroom, because they’re just piled on a small table in my foyer right now.  I’ve got a ton of ideas off of Pinterest I’d love to implement for organizing things around here, and my craft room isn’t finished yet.  I’m trying to start a vegetable/herb garden.  There are some things around the house that need to be taken care of, like the towel ring in the downstairs bathroom that fell down and the living room curtain rod that broke yesterday.  And there are always chores that need to be done, laundry and dishes to wash, meals to cook, groceries to buy, family birthdays to buy for, not to mention a toddler and cat to care for, play with, and clean up after… and grad school starts up again next week.  GAH!

My biggest limitation is energy, though time and money aren’t far behind.

So, I’m hoping that blogging can help me focus the time and energy I have, and keep me from spending more money!
