This was exactly what I need. I've been meaning to repaint some picture frames for about 2 weeks but haven't scheduled the time to do it and can't seem to tear myself away from the computer or tv to do it. I've also started training for a half marathon so tonight will be running, painting and maybe reading.


Unplug for an Evening: Try a Media Fast The January Cure: Assignment # 10

I'm focusing on redoing my entry way. It currently houses an underused bookcase, my most used shoes and boxes of stuff to get rid. It really is functioning like a closet right now. The goal is to make it a real entry way space that is nice to look at when first entering the apartment rather than the cluttered eyesore that it is. This means finding a new home for the shoes, getting rid of the bookcase and boxes and bring in a bench and table.

Like many others, my walls are pretty bare. I'm not sure why it's never been a priority so this assignment is perfect. I've taken a lot of travel photos over the years but the images all sit on my computer so I rarely enjoy them nor do these experiences get shared with friends and family. So for this project, I've chosen about 7-8 pictures of with a common theme of "yellow" that I'm going to frame and group together. The plan is to hang them in my bedroom in non-matching frames that are painted white. I think the yellow color will pop well the room where the walls and most textiles are some shade of purple.

i made this recipe with my CSA corn and heirloom tomatoes from my community garden and it was really good. however, i felt like it was missing some texture so i added bacon (guilty smile) and it was even better. the salty bacon cut the sweetness of the 2 other ingredients better than the goat cheese i think. i also think maybe some picked red onions would be nice - add a little kick as well.

totally on board with the open cabinets. making things look so much airier. would love to do the same but owners just put new cabinets in. have u thought about cutting out that strip down the middle to make it look like one big continuous shelf?
