It's been almost a year

It has been almost a year since my last post on this blog. Much has changed in my life... but really not much has changed at all. I stopped doing some things to concentrate more on my professional career at work and this blog was one of them. After this break I have realized I miss this medium and want to get back into writing again.

I am now a year away from thirty and have started to look back on my life to see what I have accomplished and what I have not. I can't help but compare my life to others and feel like I have kind of fallen behind. That being said I have to take a look at what I have been doing that is working and what has not been working (this is still an in progress process).

So I hope you will join me as I design my new way of life.

New Items in My Etsy Shop

I added two new items to my Etsy Shop today. One is a set of four Emerald Green Placemats. They are washable and available for order in other colors.



The second is another iPad Mini case. This one is in a yarn called Zebra, a mix of black and white dyed yarn. This like many of the items in my shop is available for custom order!

How to Pull off an Eclectic Design

There are so many different types of motif's in this one design but yet they are all pulled together. How is that accomplished? The repetition of one individual aspect or motif. Gold. 

The gold splashed around the room is the uniting factor in the design. Walk your eyes from left to right.  Gold turn arm lamp with a trifold leg. Gold frame with a gold lamp for illumination of the artwork. Gold candelabra style urns on the metallic walls as accents. The gold trim around the fireplace opening. Golden legs on the coffee table. And sprinkled throughout are a few accessories in gold. Finally a golden hued piece of art that is dramatically different from the piece on the opposite wall. 

Having the gold follow through in this way allows the eye to find a sense of peace in the chaos of the design mess thus making the visual mess tidy and with purpose. It creates a calming affect to have things or ideas that are familiar in value evenly distributed amongst the non-familiar.
