Fickle Pickle..

That is how I feel lately..


I want to change one too many things around here..

- Rooms.  I would like to finish a room in the basement to put Lynnie-lou down there, so we can separate the two who do not let each other sleep..  I am still adding to Lynnie’s room, making it her own, so why do I desire to move her and customize her room the way I have always dreamed of when I am still creating away?

- Paint.  I am thinking of painting my craft room a sunshin-ey (but not too bright) yellow.  I really do love my Hot Chocolate brown, but now it’s springtime!  I want to do away with the warm and cozy, and get with the airy and bright.  I even picked up a sample while visiting Home Deaf-o the other day..

- Ashley + kindergarten.  Need I really say more?  Okay, I will. ;)  I think I have made a decision, but more things come to mind and I wonder if it is the right decision for little Ash..  then I feel like it is the right thing to do (again) and the pattern just repeats itself.  I keep praying about it, and that is just how it will have to go..

- Baby.  I think I want one more.  Really. The feeling can be brought on by various happenings, like the DARLING fabric I saw at the craft store the other day that screamed to me “NURSERY!!!”  But then there are THOSE days, when I am completely content and happy.  It seems like asking  for more would be so ungrateful.  Then there are THOSE other days..  where I wonder how on earth I would do it!  Again..  praying.  

- Blogging.  I love it!!  I love having this place with so many friends (many whom I have not met..) a place to connect and to laugh, to share and to learn.  But I keep on thinking of changing things up.  I want my blog to continue to reflect who I really am.  I keep dreaming of other names for it, and I dream of new headers..  I guess that is one of the downsides of creativity.

Or maybe it is just the nature of being woman.

I guess it is just the way things go..

But don’t be surprised if you see a new header soon. :)

P.S.  While changing Peyton’s post nap diaper (of all things..) I realized that I left out the biggest (I think at least) item on this list that is doing consecutive somersaults in my brain.  It has taken-up the bulk of many pillow talk conversations with Merrill, but it’s something that I just can’t make up my mind on..

- A “Mindy Made” store…

What do YOU think?

Mindy Made store is PERFECT!

Julie said...

I'm with Christie. Do it all!

I love the new header also...

As for a store, I think it's a great idea as long as you're not going to feel trapped into creating for others, rather than yourself. You have always taken such pleasure in creating, and I would hate for that pleasure to take a backseat to necessity (because you had orders to fill). I think you would have a lot of traffic, and that you would probably sell quite a few of your creations. You have amazing talent, and I'm all for you sharing it with the world.

Oh, and I really think you would totally be able to balance all the other things you have listed, as well as another baby. You are the best multitasker I know, the Ultimate Domestic Goddess, and I love how you revel in that role. :)

I love the header! In fact, I would LOVE an applicae? T-shirt for Ms. Ava with those EXACT birds on it from the MIndy Made store. I would probably just do things made to order though and just do the projects you want so you don't take the fun out of it and become someone's slave!

Yes! A Mindy Made Store! Perfect! (Maybe you could start by letting us all buy your digital scrapbooking templates, hee hee hee!) ;)

BookwormMom said...

OOOOoooo, I like the idea of buying the digital scrapbook templates...and I could figure out how to use them and not feel lost like I do when I open photoshop currently!
