The weather has warmed quite a bit but the snow men shall remain!
I must be finally growing up. I have come to terms with 'you can't have it all' and it will be what it is and not what I 'desperately want' it to be. :O The decorating plan is coming together realistically and close to my dream. I am actually checking my check list of criteria to stay focused!
I know what I want downstairs but actually have no theme fabric and the closest I come is this Mary Englebreit calender page. It reminded me that the red I want is an accent and not a main colour. I had gotten way too dark. So recognizing and working with the percentage or proportion of the colours and the values helps keep me true to the original idea. I absolutely have to have the samples up for a while to study things, just like I do with my design wall for my fibre art. It helps me see where I want my focal point and what my colour options are to make that happen. It also gives the Rooster a chance to calm down and come around! oh, OKAY! Sometimes he is right! lol
I did stick to the general plan this week. At least enough to get me headed in the right direction.
Altered Book is done. I incorporated the tags into Tutorial Tuesday and even into my Creativity 101 class with my gal. I will have catch up calender pages for Monday.
The sewing plan is decided and I really need a few more fabrics before I start the scrappy blocks and I'll get them on my errand day next week.
But I also need to reduce the piles of stuff all over the upstairs and I'm happy to report I got one whole laundry basket of miscellaneous memorabilia done and mostly put away. There is a bit more to do! vbsigh All my ideas have been saved in those two drawers. Once I had four drawers. Then two and now I'm not sure what to save and where to put it. :(
The fun reward was trying something new. :) This is a daylight photo.
It also showed me I need to sort my supplies a bit more efficiently. I started by throwing away the packages. gnash, gnash What if I need to read instructions??? I could google, right? lol Full disclosure. I have issues- look at those file drawers. But the problem is that I don't understand my own filing system. sheesh It makes sense when I file it! okay, something to tackle next week.
But I'm definitely forging ahead!
