All I can do is think about how I want to paint and decorate our new home. M has given me full artistic license on the main floor (woo hoo!) though I promise to take his opinions into consideration. Isn't that gracious of me? I like making things myself... I love browsing through magazines and websites to look at beautiful things and then think about how I could make them myself! Today I came across a lovely shower curtain at www.urbanoutfitters.com but unfortunately, it doesn't match the tile that's in the bathroom (which I'm NOT fond of, but since it looks decent, it is L-O-W on the list of things to upgrade in the home.)
I absolutely love a black and white silhouetted pattern! You can use it with any accent colors, and the busy-ness of the pattern is subdued by the two-toned color scheme. When I look at this I think, "how easy would that be to make?" Just cut a stencil and use fabric paint to make a pattern on an inexpensive piece of fabric. I could do that and then use the fabric to make pillows for... something? The only problem with projects is that they take time! And time is rare for a full-time student/teacher. So I'm going to store up all of my inspiration for the summer when I'll be off from school. Oh, summer.... you're so far away!
