Oh no, just when I'm figuring out how to balance my time and not spend too much of my life on the computer, I had to go a discover a new blog addiction. Well, it isn't new, just new to me. )
It is a decorating blog called The Nesting Place. Oh boy, do I love this blog! It just recently had over 1 million hits since January, so I'm definitely not the first to be Nester-ized. And I just happened to discover it on the day she was offering free downloads of her new e-book, It Doesn't Have to be Perfect to be Beautiful.
After reading the book, I was so inspired and set free by her philosophy. She talks about breaking all the rules and not being afraid to decorate. That was me- living with builder beige and making no changes around here for the past five years because I was afraid of committing and afraid of doing it "wrong."
Nester inspired me, but now I've got a little problem. Ha Ha:
How do I settle on just ONE color? : ) My daughter helped me grab the samples from Lowe's and with big eyes she said, "Mom, I think you have hundreds!"
So as soon as I'm able to settle on just one color, I am going to paint this wall as my project for the Within One Week contest I'm hosting from May 13-20.
Let's just see how brave I really am! : )
Go check out Nesting Place for yourself. Have fun and make sure you sign up for her newsletter so you can also get a free copy of her e-book. Maybe she will inspire you and you'll want to join in on the next W.O.W. contest with me to accomplish your new inspiration. I hope so!
Enjoy fellow nesters!
