One word, well two

Discipline and creativity.

In 2011 discipline and creativity are going to be my goals. I feel like in a perfect world I would have equal parts of both. Fun, creative ideas, and the discipline to see those ideas come t0 life.

It's very easy for me to dream more than I do. I look for inspiration more than I transfer that inspiration into reality.

Creativity takes a certain amount of discipline. It takes movement and drive. And sometimes, I just don't follow through enough.

So while I'd like to develop creatively, I would also like to develop the art of discipline. Learning something, mastering something, not giving up when my ideas comes out lame, or when I don't see the results right away.

Just some thoughts to ring in the new year:)

And here are some things I am loving lately.

This headboard. I mean, seriously. We just bought a bed two weeks ago, but I wonder if I could do something like this anywhere else in my house? Like....above my kitchen cabinets? Hmmm.

House Tweaking

This guest room. Poof balls. Cannot get enough of the poof ball craze. I've made a few of my own and they are fun and easy. Remember making fans out of your church bulletin when you were little? Well, throw in some wire and some scissors and you've got a poof ball. But don't use a church bulletin. Use tissue paper.

These vintage wooden spool photo holders. It's the little things people. And the cheap things.

Under the Sycamore

And guess who just found some old spools of thread in her garage? Oh yeah. I did!
