Dining Room Updates

Here are a couple of updates we did to our dining room.  I no longer use the serving tray I painted with chalkboard paint as a meal planner.  I find it easier to plan our meals by writing them on my printable weekly to do list instead. We now use the tray on our table to corral the salt and pepper shakers and napkins.

Since the bottom of the tray is painted a black chalkboard color, it lets the white containers on the tray stand out and helps to anchor them in the space.

I also hung up the hanging planters I had in my old kitchen.

Just a couple small things, but they make a noticeable difference.

New ‘Weekly To Do List’ Free Printable

You may have noticed I’ve reworked my logo and branding for my Etsy shop, and just this last week I’ve done some work to this blog as well.  Let me know what you think of the changes!

To celebrate my new logo, I’ve made a NEW ‘Weekly To Do List’ Free Printable.  It’s free, so take a look and download it for your personal use.  You can easily hole punch it to use in your home management binder, or clip it to your fridge.  I’ll also feature the new printable on my “Free Printables Page”, for easy access.

Clutter.  For about a month now, I have felt like I pick up one project only to put it down because something else needs my attention.  As a result, my house and my mind are cluttered and feeling disorganized.  I feel like I have so many ideas and good intentions and nothing is getting done.  I’m spinning my wheels. 

Maybe it is the weather.  I keep thinking spring is here and but instead we end up getting more snow.  Disappointing, and lack of spring is not helping my disheartened mood.

Even my blog is affected.  I want to post more frequently but I’m having an internal fight with myself.  One part of me wants my posts to be perfect with fabulous photos and amazing, never before seen content.  Unrealistic I know.  Great content and photos will come with time, studying and practice.  One part of me wants to write posts like this. No fabulous photos, just never before shared content from me, about what is affecting me and on my mind.

I may be overthinking this.  I am, after all, listening to children’s music about a duckling for the nine millionth time today and this may be affecting my thinking.

I’m off to complete one project – organize my receipts and bills from 2013.  Might sound like a lot of work but it is one of the projects that is partly already done.  I should just need to hole punch the papers and put them in a binder.  Here’s to hoping I don’t make it more complicated and I can get this done today!

As Always,
