Hello hello! I’m playing catch up after a relaxing week of unplugging my computer. I know, I didn’t even turn it on once! I had grand plans to play with my kids, swim, watch fireworks, eat and generally do nothing.
While I did do a lot of that, somehow my house started whispering in my ear, things like… “this picture frame would look better in the entry”
and “you should really do that upholstery project you’ve been talking about”
and “what about all those plates you got for that plate wall”
and “your chalkboard looks awful lonely”
and “do the laundry” (wait what? that’s not a good idea house!)
So, naturally I ignored the last one (which might have been the Mr. pretending to be the house anyways, he is sneaky like that) and got on the rest. Seriously I got a million projects done and my house looks totally different. I can’t wait to share them all with you, but since my inbox is overflowing from my little internet vacation I’ll just quick share my fun summer chalkboard that took me about 20 minutes to doodle.
If you are on instagram (which you should be – cuz not only is it so fun, but you can also follow me and get sneak peeks of projects and the general chaos of my life at http://instagram.com/lilypadcottage) you may know of the fun app A Beautiful Mess. I’m not actually cool enough to have that app because I don’t have an iphone (I know I’m the last person on the planet without one, feel free to cry for me), but my doodles were inspired by all my much cooler friends who are using A Beautiful Mess to add cute little phrases and drawings on their Instagram pics.
Oh except for the smiley face on the sun, that was all my little girlie apparently “it’s not a good sunshine without a smiley face mom!” got it, must remember smiley face always :) <—– see already so much better!
It was fun to doodle something silly rather than work on complicated fonts and phrases.
I’ll be back later in the week sharing one of the umpteenzillion things I switched around in my house…you know, if they are still in the same spot later in the week…my house may have other plans…
PS If your house doesn’t whisper weird things to you just pretend we never had this conversation.
