i’ve decided i’m the kind of person who may have my analytical side, but i have a creative half that balances it right out. whenever i take those quizzes asking if i’m left or right brained, i end up right in the middle. this classification isn’t exactly a classification, more a confirmation (even if these tests aren’t exact) in my mind at least, that i’m a good mix of different things. although i love making cards, decor, and little trinkets, i can’t stand having anything out of place or being unorganized. my organizational tendencies come in handy, but there are times i’ve gotta keep my perfectionistic quirks in check. when i head back to school, you can bet your bottom dollar (yes, i just said that) i will be making a paper source run and adding some new goodies to my crafting area (a.k.a. the desk i should be using to do homework). so many things on the internet inspire me to create, and i hope one day my blog will do that for others. to finish this post off, in the words of jack london, “you can’t wait for inspiration, you have to go after it with a club.”
one thing i really can’t stand is when i’m seriously disorganized, so you can imagine how stressful college move-in day (or days in my case) is. the roomie and i are still decorating our rooms and after moving in over a week ago, finally managed to raise her bed. i’ve given up on mine… the one thing i do have some control over right now is my desk, and it’s officially becoming a crafting station, no joke.
i absolutely love making things from scrapbooks to cards, but room decor is probably my favorite. inspiration boards, murals cut out of silver poster board, you name it, i probably love or would love to make it. i had seen these confetti canvases all over the internet and figured they’d be easy to make. easy is an understatement! you only need a few supplies, along with ten minutes, and you’re good to go. when the holidays come around i plan on making some for me and my roommate to hang up on our dorm room door (how cute would a halloween one be?!). you can definitely personalize these through color, quotes, initials, etc., which i definitely think i’ll do in the future!
