What I would do with free time

I use to have so much time, I would run errands and window shop just for fun, sew entire outfits for going out that evening, watch loads of TV. It’s the one thing about motherhood I just can’t wrap my head around, my time is gone, vanished, without a trace, without notice. I’m not complaining, I LOVE every moment I spend with Talia and Jordan, I wish I had more time to spend with them. But at the same time we have this cool house and I have access to DIY tutorials to fill years worth of time via the internet, I just don’t have the time.  I imagine one day my girl swill be old enough to work with me on some projects, we will start slow with painting (as soon as they stop eating paint) and eventually they can help me build things. I try to keep a running list of projects for one day on my Pinterest boards, but adding too much gets me a little over whelmed. Plus, I view projects for the home the same way I view that new dress or pair of shoes I saw last week. If I’m still thinking about it when I get around to buying/making it then I really wanted it. If I’m not, it must not have been so important to begin with.

Here are a few of the projects I can’t stop thinking about for one day,

Simple, Fun, Beautiful art on the walls

    I love those antlers! All of these are such great ideas.

    And thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog =] I left you a response on there, but wasn’t sure if you’d get it, so I thought I’d drop by and respond here too.

    The photos actually set up that way automatically. I just checked, and they format like that for both the pictures I link from Flickr and the photos I upload from my computer. It must be a Blogger thing, and I see you have WordPress, so that’s probably why they’re formatted differently. Sorry I couldn’t be of more help!

    I just did a quick Google search on the topic, though, and this is the first link that popped up http://diythemes.com/thesis/rtfm/how-to-add-frames-images-wp/ — I didn’t read through the whole thing, but the writer seemed to know what they were talking about. Hope that helps! =] Great blog!
