Ok, I know it's not really "art," but for the past few days I've felt so creatively recharged! After living in my condo for 3 years, I FINALLY got around to painting the walls and making it feel less like a college dorm and more like home. For a while I've really been burnt out on living where I do, and I've been set on saving up some money and moving. But I have to admit, now that things are painted and I'm finally starting to weed out the hand-me-downs and bring in pieces of my own style and taste, this place isn't half bad! I suppose there will be things you like and dislike about where you live, no matter where you end up, but I guess my point is that just by making some little changes, I'm more okay with where I am, and I can stop stressing out about wanting to move. (I suppose it helps that I have a great boyfriend helping me out with the whole thing too, but that's another story ;) He's great.)

Anyway, the reason I felt the need to post this in my ART blog was because paint....is paint. No, I wasn't painting murals or creating works of art on my previously white walls, but I was painting. And I'll tell you one thing, when 1am rolled around and I realized that I still wasn't in bed because I was too "in the task," it was a great feeling. Not so much this morning because I'm dead tired, but at the time, I felt that art rush. So much so, that I've decided that today when I run to Hobby Lobby to pick up a lamp shade, I'm stocking up on a few canvas panels, getting a few new paint colors and getting started with a few new pieces as soon as I have my living room back in shape! What a silly way to reignite the creativity...paint my living room! :) Maybe I'll post a picture or two when I get it all set up and decorated for Christmas :)
