My mind has been so scattered lately. Like... REALLY scattered. I swear I have the attention span of a gnat sometimes.
I've been trying so hard to figure out what this blog should be... how to focus on something that people will really want to read. I read tons of blogs in which these uber creative people have so many tutorials and amazing ideas. Crazy awsome pictures. Fantastic recipes and incredibly insightful wisdom. I'm not sure I can compete with all that.
Soooooo... how about if I stop thinking about what OTHER people are blogging about and focus instead, on what is in my head at any given moment? It changes so much from day to day. The main focus of the blog will still be what I'm trying to focus on in my life: stuff that just makes me happy. Little stuff. Big stuff. And all the in between stuff. Besides, all that comparing with other blogs doesn't serve much of a purpose other than making me feel REALLY bad about myself and what I have to offer. So, no more comparisons. Way more happy, instead!
Oh, and as an update, I made those curtains. And I hated them. I hated them so much that I literally tore them apart and made a completely different project with all that shirred/ruched/ruffled fabric (which, incidentally took me FOREVER to create, therefore I was going to use those panels, hell or high water!) So, in a Tim Gunn "Make it work!" moment, I made an enormous floor pillow. And, on top of that, I made completely different curtains that I'm much, much happier with. I'll try to get some pictures up tomorrow. (I know, I know... promises, promises.) But first, I must unearth the pit that is Ella's room. Because cripes... there is no way on the planet earth that the entire internet is going to see my baby girl's room in it's current state. No. Way. In. Hell.
