Pics for Mom

So my mom is beginning to do a bedroom renovation... bye bye kelly green carpet! I told her I would look for some different inspiration pics. On Houzz you can't save pics, but you can grab the html code, so mom, this post is for you! I only had a few mins, so I'll look for more soon! Enjoy!

Ok this room has a very "you" feel. I also liked the greyish flooring- see it does work! I also really want to work a seating area in- NOT the toy bench! :)

We need some great lighting and I included this one to give you an idea of what I was talking about with the rug and the bed.

This one has that girly feel you like, but I think we need to find something more in the middle for dad!

I REALLY like the look of this room. I feel like you could pull it off!! Cool accent pillows make a huge impact and you desperately need em :)

If you decide on the hardwoods, we'll use an accent rug like this. I also liked the rich, warm colors of this one, but I think you're learning towards lighter tones.

Ugg- the last link isn't working... More to come soon!!

Simple Life

Tonight I read this post on the Creative Mama Blog... It was so true and sometimes how I feel. Last night we had a no frills Family Game Night... Monopoly Jr, Pictionary, Smartfood, Cheeseballs, and Pretzels with Frosting... nothing amazing or creative, but really fun. Sometimes when life is crazy, it's nice to be reminded that my kids won't be remembering how creative I was, but they will remember that we played together and had fun!

Living a creative life can be exhausting, especially if you are hooked in to the internet. There are just so many amazing people out there, doing amazing things. It can be easy to develop a warped perspective — like looking at someone else’s life through a fisheye lens all the time. If you’re not careful, you start to believe that everyone else’s homes are immaculate, their children are all burgeoning artists, and their adorable pets never throw up on the tan carpet just before company arrives. Well, that perspective is, well, warped. We all have bad days, dirty laundry on the floor, and tomato sauce spattered all over our microwave. So remember, some days it’s best to just get back to the basics. You don’t need to sit with your kids and make valentines that could be sold on Esty for premium prices. Just sit down with your kids and do something.
