confessions of a diyer turned blogger

This blog has not only taken over my life …

… it’s taken over our house!

And here I go broadcasting my dirty laundry again.

At every turn there are notebooks and scraps of paper with blog post and decorating ideas and link party reminders …

… and now I can’t leave the house without this ….

… my notebook filled with ideas and scrawled posts earmarked with brightly colored post-its.  You can find me idling in the car waiting to pick up my daughter from guitar or volleyball — or in the corner of the orthodontist’s office at my son’s appointment — scribbling away like a mad woman. 

I’m like an old school Blackberry or iphone addict: Instead of hunting and pecking at a teeny tiny keyboard, I’m rapidly writing away with pen on paper.

Supplies for projects and my future etsy store are collecting in nooks and crannies …

… and spilling out into our living spaces …

… and some leftover lumber that I can’t seem to part with has taken up residence in our dining room …

… my laptop is now littered with pesky post-it notes.

We may need to move to a bigger house.

And to think I was worried about coming up with blog post ideas.

Now I need to come with a design idea for how I can creatively carve out an office/craft space/storage area in our little 2,000 square foot home …

Where is that post-it-noted notebook?

    I use the post-it notes on my computer at work. It’s pretty handy! I think they would be great for keeping ideas and to-do’s together at home as well.

    I have a binder with a notebook and folder in it for my blog but I haven’t used it yet. For some reason I continue to carry around a smaller notepad I purchased prior to the whole blogging thing.

    yes, it does take over! I always have my camera with me now…friends and family know that anything is fair game for a possible blog post…

    Start with a shelf. Instead of spreading out, go up! Tell hubby this is essential for your sanity. ;} Hide the lumber behind the couch, use corner shelves and pretty baskets (you can sell them later). Above all else…enjoy the journey!

    I use {free} to store/file/write. It can be loaded onto your computer, then accessed from the web or a smart phone app. Great place to keep ideas!

    I’m so enjoying all the eye candy you post!!
