About Me and Wednesday's Wisdom

I just added an About Me page to the blog - a little late at 6 posts in....however it's there for you to refer to whenever you feel the need.  I missed my post yesterday, had a crazy day at work and then netball trials. 

I have been reading up on many blogs and love that there is a whole little blog world out there, with so much support for everyone who is just putting themselves out there. Its terribly daunting, scary but wow - so great and liberating. 

I remember when I was younger I had a diary and I would write in it what I was feeling, but would then go back and cross it out in case someone read it and didn't agree. So in the end I was writing what I thought someone wanted to read, rather than what I wanted to write. I am making sure to remember NOT to do that with this....and I welcome all feedback, good and bad. I can only be me, and I am on the path to working out who she is, what her values are and what beliefs and opinions she holds. For so long I have been so careful to make sure I don't offend people, and avoid confrontations, but that doesn't help me in the long run. It's not good for the soul. So here I am, laid bare. Not bare as in naked (thank god!), but honest. Honesty is something that is a little new for me, but I will get there. I am already on my way!

On a side note - I thought I might start a weekly post called Wednesday Wisdom. So much pressure for the first post - oh my giddy aunt!

Here you go -

Something to ponder.

Well I am back after a brief hiatus.

Committing to this blog thing is a little harder than I thought, what with life being so busy and all. And it is not going to get any less busy what with a baby on the way, but I am determined to keep going.  I am here making another post and showing more of my little world to you.

I am in love with fluro at the moment. I wear a lot of neutral coloured clothes and I like the pop that a bit of brightness does to an outfit. I feel the same about my house at the moment. Our furniture is neutral which works perfect for me when I want to add something a little different to change it up. I can just add some accessories without needing to fork out a lot of dough.

So I decided to make some cushion covers to go on the couch. I got some fabric paint from Spotlight (the last one!) in a bright fluro yellow. I had no idea that cushion covers would be so hard to find but I eventually got some from Lincraft, but they were ribbed. I was after plain ones but decided that the ribbing might work in my favour. I measured out the lines and started painting.....and I am so happy with the results.

What do you think? Presley the dog seems interested!

Now in the process of painting the second one I ran out of paint. Which is annoying so I am in the search for some more...but I can't wait till they are both on the couch. Pretty happy with this little project.
