Cleaning and Creativity
"Mmmm Pancakes" was my very first thought yesterday morning, as I crawled out of bed. So my soon to be roommate and I went out in the rain to pick up syrup and pancake mix. I love how taking time to clean and organize a house can make you lighter.
This week I concluded that this change is exactly what I needed to help me not be so restless. I have taken time to enjoy cleaning, organizing and making a few things new here and there, which has helped to make things feel fresh. Over the past four days I have chosen one small cleaning project and one small home decor or improvement project a day to tackle, and I feel so accomplished.
I have also noticed that there is a correlation between the cleanliness of my home and my freedom in creativity. When my house is clean I am much more relaxed, I notice that I now want to cook and my mind is allowed the freedom to be creative. My goal is that by the first week in August my house will be in ship-shape order, and that I can hopefully spend my free time brainstorming some of the ideas that I am considering pursuing with the possibility of continuing my blog and/or making a brand for myself and some of the creative projects I do.
Oh! The adventures I create for myself.
Tonight I thought I would post a few pictures of the small projects I have worked on around my apartment and introduce you to the cutest and sassiest cat you will ever meet, Taliah my long-tailed kitty.
