Room / Life / Mess

Does anyone else agree that when your room is a mess, your life is a mess? They are one and the same to me.

My room right now looks like a friggin’ tornado hit it. A few glimpses of what’s going on inside, with the *actual* mess carefully hidden from the camera. 😉

Calligraphy practice paper, nibs, and ink spread out all over my desk. Why is the learning curve so steep for me? I guess it would help if I practiced more than once a month… kinda like how I should have practiced piano growing up, or Korean, or guitar, or… (damn, I’m kind of a quitter, aren’t I).

Christmas presents on the ground. If your name is Daisy (or Karin, or Tina), I have not seen you since before 12/2013. -_- This is a problem, and not just because you’re contributing to the clutter in my room.

An unfinished 3-tiered cake. Made from diapers, obvi. (I would prefer it if this were a 3-tiered cake made out of… cake. And strawberries.)

Random stacks of fabric, because my box of fabrics is officially overflowing. I always make sewing projects and end up with leftover fabric swatches, which are typically too small to make something substantial but too big to throw away without it feeling like a waste. Wait. I’ve got it. Time to make a quilt. I literally thought of that right now, so you just caught a #geniusmoment. *bows*

I went to Joann’s yesterday and bought THE GILDED PAPER STACK. Which is 48 sheets of 12″x12″ cardstock paper. Because I love gold. And I love anything 50% off. The name is pretty deceiving, as you can see above that only about half the stack is actually gilded. Also, I currently have no use for this paper, as I have not scrapbooked or made a card in months, but this is not what I was thinking in the store as I mentally patted myself on the back for the find. I embellished that teal plate with gold dots, because I love gold. Wait, did I already say that?

Anyway.

In the time it took me to photograph and write this post, I could have probably cleaned my entire room. Eff.
