Still looking for my mojo....

I  tried painting a little last weekend which was a nice change from my normal as of late,  uninspired weekends. (If you follow along on the fan page you got to see the sneak peek photo)  That being said, it was still a bit of a creative effort rather than a creative flow. It has a lot to do with time, energy and $$$ but it could also be a bit of a creative block based on my surroundings. Which is why I plan to spend some time today following Miss Mustard Seed's organizational advice. My painting space, aka the garage is still packed to the rim and in disarray, even after unloading 80% of my inventory. I would show you a photo but it really is that bad and without an "after" to accompany it, I'm afraid your opinion of me would change. So for now you will have to use your imagination.  I am on a bit of a time crunch since I've already agreed to host a Treasures sale on November 12th. Which is a good thing. For starters, it will hold me accountable (which I seem to need lately)  and the money from the sale will help finish Operation Game Room.  Which is oh so close to being complete!!

This doesn't have anything to do with this post but I found it strangely enough while blog "stalking" and thought it was an amazing inexpensive idea. Something I definitely want to try!! Check it out on Design Stocker!

Have you heard?

It looks like Hobby Lobby is coming to California!! If you are like me, you have heard about this great store on many of your east coast blogging buddies sites and dreamed about being able to rummage through this great store for fabulous deals (I'm not alone on this one- right?)

I work in the Commercial Real Estate industry and was doing my usual prospecting research online when I stumbled across this article about Hobby Lobby and their expansion. Best part for me? One of their new locations will be less than 5 minutes from my work. That's going to perk up my lunch time routine for sure!!

Can't wait!
