Happy Friday, everyone! I am sure some of you may be wondering where all the posts have been lately. My posts have been few and far between since I announced my new blog name. And, I am here to explain today. I try my best to keep y’all updated on everything that is going on behind the scenes of this favorite space of mine.
If you follow me on Instagram, you have probably seen some of the pictures and have an idea. If you don’t follow me on Instagram, here is a little peak at what my house currently looks like.
This is the view of my office. YIKES!!! And, this is the mess that is holding me up from posting a lot. About a month ago, I told y’all that my kiddos’ rooms were both getting a makeover. Well, this project was started right after I made that post. We hired someone to do the job that had no idea what they were doing. They didn’t inform us of this until after the fact. Lots of tears, heart ache, and anger have been shared this past month over it too. So, we had to purchase all new materials and pay someone else to come in, fix the mistakes, and get it done correctly. Let’s just say, I have not been happy about it.
But, you live, learn, and move on…
So, everything from my kids’ rooms are in the office, kitchen, living room, and our bedroom. Can you imagine how I am handling that?!?! Not very well. I don’t like clutter. I do not like mess. It makes me feel like I can’t breathe. So, right now, I feel like I am drowning in mess.
The flooring should be finished today. And, I am happy to report that it now looks amazing! And, my husband and I are going to fix the paint, crown molding, and chair rails ourselves. We have to find time to squeeze it all in, though. And, that is driving me nuts as well.
So, you are seeing how sometimes things don’t go as planned around here!!!
I thought I was going to have a bedroom update for y’all for both rooms, but my plans didn’t work out that way. So, my blog editorial calendar has a lot of eraser marks and changes made. I have learned, never fill out your blog editorial calendar in pen (insert smile).
But, I have several posts coming up…
- coat closet update
- Halloween teacher’s goodies
- purse organization (with giveaway) – SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS ONE!!!
- my closet reveal
- my husband’s closet reveal
- Kate and Derrick’s room reveals and closets
- my accessory closet
- Kate’s desk makeover
- Christmas card storage
- My 2015 planner (with a giveaway) – SUPER EXCITED ABOUT THIS ONE TOO!!!
- My favorite closet organizing products
- drawer challenge
- and, other posts along the way…
Thank you for being such amazing readers. If there are any other posts you would like to see, please feel free to post below or shoot me an email.
If y’all request it, I will try my best to make it happen!
In addition to posts, I have been doing a little behind the blog researching and learning. I have decided to put together a media kit for this space of mine. A media kit is given to potential advertisers. It shows your blog’s stats, contact info, mission, and purpose. I will share all of that with y’all when it is finished.
Also, I am trying to make my photography even better. I have purchased a reflector to use for my photos. You know my husband is going to love this. It means that he gets to hold it while I snap pics (insert laughter).
And, I am throwing around the idea of purchasing some lighting as well.
My goal is brighter pictures!
I have come a long way since Day 1, but I still have a long way to go. So, I decided some inexpensive equipment may be necessary and a good investment.
Enough with my rambling for one day. Next week, I should have 4 posts coming y’alls way (insert happy dance). I hope y’all have a blessed weekend.
