Gradient Girl

She is really cute and that color brightened my morning.

Also thank you for still sticking around and to all those comments I didn't respond to directly I truly do appreciate the time you take out to type something in this small corner of the internet - love you all :)

I disappeared for a lot longer than I had expected and rather than bore you all with the details of my absence I just thought it better to start off with "Hello" for all of you who are still here :)

I will be easing back into the social networking scene slowly and I honestly can't tell you how often I will be here, hopefully at least once a week - fingers crossed. However if you are just looking to see some of the pretty things that I find inspiring you can check out my tumblr (they make it so easy for this girl with a crazy schedule) here

White Walls Are Nice

I first came across that lovely office space in the upper right hand corner while visiting Jenn at A Home in the Making and it really struck me as a lovely space that I could get creative in. Well as it usually is on the internet one thing leads to one hundred things and many hours layer on Pinterest I had pinned rooms with lots of white space and pops of color. Some people may think white walls are boring but I like the brightness that comes with them - like a blank canvas to allow ideas to get moving.

Paper, Paper Everywhere

I am a organizing freak - give me matching plastic containers and a label maker and I am one VERY happy girl. But there is one aspect of my life that does not fit neatly in a container, and it's the day to day. Between appointments, assignments, and the activities of a very busy 10 year old on most days my to do is a game of where did I write that down and where did I put it? My inner Martha Stewart silently weeps- I just know it.

Now dont think I am not a planner kind of girl- I love planners!!! They hold such promise of an organized year ahead of me and I collect them like I do sketchbooks. I fill them with lists and then put it down and hardly look at it again until I add more things with the intention of lugging it around with me. I am genuinely surprised that I make it to any of the items I am scheduled for, thank God for follow up phone calls.

So I need to find something that works and travels with me, my solution is to try I and go paperless this year. I am not sure how it will go for a girl who likes to write things down ( something about typing it just doesn't feel the same to me), but I have many apple products that play nicely with one another and a new calendar app that practically promised to make my life more streamlined and less cluttered.

How do all you beautiful people keep track of things? Any apps you can't live without?

Fancy Feathers

Don't you love old photographs - the people always look so fancy to me. I just purchased three fun vintage photos from Etsy and I'm not sure what to do with them, but they are fun to look at. Here is just a fun combo to start out the week.

This is what last week looked like for me. One of our chairs is done and it is pretty fantastic. I have to take a proper picture of it to share with you all. 

One thing I have learned about myself is that if I say I am going to do something (take a picture every day) I typically have a hard time following through, but if I just keep my mouth shut and do something it works out better for me - what's that about?
