More of the white stuff.

I think after yesterdays post, I have confused everyone into thinking I was depressed or bored. I didn't mean it that way. I'm just having trouble not having any big goals in my sights. I'll adjust but it was just one of those rare pensive posts that I obviously misworded. In any case, thank you very much for the concern and suggestions.

Yesterday we got another 9 inches of snow. Much less than was predicted by some but still too much for my taste. Its only January and I'm already so sick of the white stuff. Spring, hurry soon.



It may not seem like I have too much going on from my lack of exciting new project posts but I promise I do.

For one thing I'm working on planning a bridal shower for a wonderful bride to be later this year. Finding a space that fits in the tiny budget and is not hideous and fits the bill for a large party is becoming an all consuming task. Hopefully once I have that out of the way, the fun projects can begin.

On the home front I'm trying to finagle my brother into helping me paint the shore kitchen on a free weekend. Add that to sewing some drapes and a few other projects for the beach, I hope to have lots to show you soon.

Mr. L's man room is in serious sad shape. I just have to do something presentable down there in 2011.

There are always a few small tweaks I want to make to the limestone. A DIY shade in the box room, accessorizing the living room. That kind of thing.

And of course I'm excited about the travel we have planned for this year. I've already mapped out every last vacation day in 2011.

More in the near future I have an organization series I'm really excited about where I'll share some of my secret mess along with loads of other fabulous bloggers who agreed to do it with me.

See, I told you I wasn't bored. If only I had more time to tackle the things I want to accomplish. That pesky day job always gets in the way.

  4. I know about those pesky day jobs. Mine has been stressing me out way too much for way too long and I decided to leave. It may be the best or the worst decision I ever made. I kinda think its going to be the best. Hang in there. You will get your groove back. Spring will be here soon.
    My best- Diane

  5. I've been a reader for a couple of years (I prefer the term fan to blogstalker)but I do believe this is my first comment. Just wanted to say I can't wait to see everything you get done this year! You have amazing taste and talent--oh and travel-ability.

  6. Ugh, isn't it frustrating? Once the 'magic' of a winter wonderland at Christmas passes, it just can't melt fast enough! Don't you worry friend, we are all patiently waiting for your genius and will wait to see all you create.

  7. Agreed about the pesky day jobs! But I love the winter, bring on the snow, I say. Then again, I live in a ski resort town, so... ;)

    I had a very similar problem when I was finding a place to get married (we got married back on the East Coast). I went with a restaurant that rarely does functions, and it was perfect. We really had full control over everything we wanted, the price was extremely reasonable, and they were very accommodating. So maybe think outside the box for the bridal shower? A bakery, breakfast spot, art gallery, public park?

  8. Don't you hate when the paying gig gets in the way of all the other things you want to do!

  9. Okay maybe you have too much to do! I couldn't keep up your schedule even if I was paid.

    It didn't seem to me like you were depressed or bored, and it didn't seem to me like anyone took it that way. Everyone gets a little pensive once in a while--it's normal and part of life. I thought you got some good suggestions. It's interesting, because quite a few people I know have mentioned feeling that way recently. Not sure if it's winter or something else.

    Anyway, look forward to what you are planning!

  11. So with you there! I have so much I want to do, but need more time to fit it all in! I just finished my biggest project, a complete room redo, and unveiled it on my blog today, so please come check it out if you have any extra time between all of the other stuff! ;-)

  12. Oh, I am excited to hear what exotic places you are planning to vist. I need ideas for 2011 :)

  13. We want Spring to hurry soon, too! We like looking at new spring trends to help get us through the dreary winter days. Stay warm! PS- we're sure you looked at Bubby's already, but it makes for a really beautiful party setting! :-)

  14. I am notorious for mapping out vacation days far in advance too! I actually have a spreadsheet... I can't wait to see where you go - I am dreaming of something exotic/adventurous this year. Right now Nepal is the top of the list!

  15. 1. I love that you are a blogger with an actual job. I feel that I read a lot of blogs where they have all the time in the world to work on projects and it makes me jealous. :P
    2. I'm excited to see your bridal shower plans! I'm also planning one but I'm pretty sure it won't be as nearly creative as yours!

  16. Happy Wednesday and snow day to you!

  17. It is summertime here in Australia - so strange looking at snowstorm's across USA (shorts and T-shirts here).

    Looking forward to all of your creations this year- beautiful invitations & new photos. What was the collaboration you showed the sneak peak the other day?

    Cheer up butter cup! You are a doer and the snow is in the way! What you have done in the last four years has been monumental so it's only natural things will slow down a bit after a while:) The sun will shine, a gem will catch your eye and it will be full steam ahead! By the way I just read your entire blog! In between chores and the like. You are the BEST photographer I have EVER encountered. I get butterflies in my stomach.

  19. Really looking forward to all the upcoming projects and travel. I would love a great dumping of snow. We have has some, but would LOVE to be snowbound... I am in Utah and we love that white stuff this time of the year.. swish!

  20. I think travelling always helps in figuring out what you want your goals to be.

  21. I love your blog! I get the winter blues too - even though I love snow more than most 8 year old's. I have a small suggestion (although you weren't really asking) for a nice place for your bridal shower...the food is great, the space is intimate, and if its a spring/summer shower, the back patio is PERFECT. Check out Jamie Lynn's Kitchen on 86th St in Brooklyn. She is a friend, and whenever I've dined there I always thought it would be a nice space for a shower (mine someday?) http://www.jamielynnskitchen.com/The_Kitchen/Home.html

  22. We've been getting silly little snow flurries, no big snowfalls yet. WI is not living up to the midwest stereotype. I can't wait to see where you are traveling this year!

  23. As to the bridal shower...we used to have them at someone's house--why not yours? That would take care of the budget. You could bring in some delicious desserts, make a bunch of different hot and iced teas and have a tea party. And think of the party decor possibilities!
