Is it really 2012

Hi there, Yes I realize I've been completely MIA on these parts.  Life seems to have gotten a hold of me.  We are doing great here and maybe that's why blogging has taken a bit of a back seat.  One of my main goals for 2012, is simplifying. I mean, really simplifying. Living with less "stuff", consuming less, spending less, less time at the computer.  I've always believed that less is more.  My style shows that, my house has minimal decorations. I like things simple.  I even believe that less is more in jewelery, earrings, wedding ring, a watch and I'm good.  However, I've found that although the main areas of my house look this way, the interior parts are out of control.  The closets are an overflowing mess, the office has piles of stuff everywhere, my paper piles (plural) are daunting, my laundry room has no walking room, my drawers are overflowing.  I've decided to get control of this. I started with my closet.  I got rid of four full black bags of clothes and shoes, and yes, my closet is still full.  When I see that, it kind of makes me sick, how much money wasted. 

I will be getting back to a more regular blogging schedule soon. I'm in a bit of a creative rut, my house is decorated in a way that makes me happy. I'm trying to simplify...so why bring in more stuff.  Hmm, I need to think about this one.  I'll be back soon.  I promise.

Nice to hear from you. I still haven't really done anything with my blog either. Maybe I'll get motivated soon.

Hey - I have an idea! Since you have enough "stuff" at your place, and it's all decorated the way you like... then head on over to my place and help me get our new place decorated. I love your house and could use some pointers :) Oh, and I've bought tons of stuff to re-finish... Basically, I'm in a rut, and I can't seem to move forward because I'm overwhelmed at all that needs to be decided. Curtains, colors, fabrics... HELP!!

Good to hear from you again! I have been focused on getting organized as well... I know exactly what you mean about overflowing interiors :-)

Hello, I am amazed by your kitchen renovation! It is such a beautiful transformation. So..I have a question for you about the window. Your previous/original window in the kitchen above the sink seemed a little bit different from the new look. I have a problem with our current renovation because the height of the window is too long for a standard cabinet. How did you adjust the whole look with the counter top? Is your window still lower than the top of the counter top? I hope that your new year is already going very well! :)

Sounds like it's time for you to get crafty and start making things to sell. ;)
