Things Aren't Always Level

After a few months weeks of downtime I finally have something to blog about. Can ya believe it? I can't. I honestly just lost my passion. I'm frustrated with my weird living room. I'm frustrated by my weird pieced together furniture. I know what I want my house to look like, but doing it myself and having the money to do it is just plain hard. Don't even ask me about hiring someone to do it. Yikes.

A few weeks ago, Bryan asked me why I hadn't blogged in a while. To which I replied, "I have nothing to say." I want to be like these people. And her. And her too. Funny, witty, charming. A husband and wife duo. A wife that likes to watch her husband build things. Decor savvy. 

Hi. My name is Megan, and I am none of those things. I kind of suck. Not because I think I can't figure out how to do these things, but because I feel like it's going to look weird. Or my vision isn't going to come out right. Or holding a extremely thin shelf and a level at the same time plus marking where I am supposed to drill is way, waaaay beyond my coordination levels. And, my husband says I suck at hammering. Well pooh to him.

I know I've written about this stuff before. And I always have a revelation as to why I should, could and how to get around those problems. Yeah, I got nothing. But I figure that only a few people read this blog and I know most of 'em. I should be able to fail without utter humiliation. If I do suffer some humiliation, well, everyone needs to be brought to their knees, right?

Bryan doesn't like me to try things because I don't know what I'm doing. (He's right.) And if I mess up, I'll have to spend more money to fix it.(Correct, again!) Well, I'll never learn if I don't try. Money is important, but it's not everything. If I have put buying those bookcases on hold or put another project on the back-burner in order to fix a botched mission, so be it. Who cares.

Luckily for you, I had this revelation a few weeks ago. So I've got some projects to show you. All I've gotta do is take pictures. And write posts. 

Here are a few things I've got going on:
-bulletin board make over
-custom buttons
-hat rack
-home organization
-Renovating a kitchen nook
-building a custom office desk
-DIY art

Stick around. Things could get interesting. Or disastrous.
