Up To My Eyeballs . . .

I’m up to  my eyeballs in projects around here, yet I’m taking on another monumental one–I’m headed back to school for Interior Design!  It’s something I’ve been thinking about for awhile, and I recently found a program that’s a perfect fit for my needs and desires.  I’d like to think it was meant to be, because I found the program on the last day to apply at about 11 pm and barely submitted my application in time.  I’m excited to be back in school because while I’ve completed my BA, it was in a subject I was interested in, but not passionate about.  I’m eager to get back in the classroom and share what I’m learning.  I hope you’ll continue to follow along–great things are coming, plus I have a fabulous giveaway planned when I reach my 100th follower milestone!  
And as for the list of projects I ned to tackle around my house?? Here’s a peak at some of the things that are on my list . . .

 Finish these pieces that I now REALLY need for my office. Don’t be afraid, they’ll both be fabulous!

 Repaint this headboard, and start tackling these BNE’s (best nightstands ever) for my in-progress bedroom makeover.

List the many fabulous items I’ve been finding for sale on Vintage Styled Home, my Etsy shop.

Decide if this is going in my bedroom, or going on the market. Either way, I need to get going and get it finished!

This reading qualifies as a project because I can’t put these magazines up (and get organized!) until I’ve read them.  Yes, some of them are old, but most of the old ones have come from thrift stores and have fabulous features that I’d like to revisit.  I have a huge stack and now it’s starting to feel like a chore, so I need to get it done.

Am I the only one with a never ending list of projects???

    congrats…I am so happy for you. I tried to enroll about 3 weeks ago and was told the damn program was canceled because they could not find jobs for the students after they graduated. he asked me what else did i wanted to design? I said…I just want to do interior design…that was the end of the convo…so wish me luck on my search here is d-town for the right school.

    I’ve got a GARAGE full of projects, but I love it. 🙂 Congrats on the design school! I myself have been contemplating it, but am still doing some research to find the right program… Good luck!

    Good for you for following your passion, you obviously are very creative and have a dynamite eye! I’m curious to know where you are headed! Kudos on scoring a spot at the last minute, sometimes life just hands you little opportunities! And the blog looks fabulous in her makeover! I need to invest in a makeover for mine (programming scares me like a rotary saw or law and order going off the air)…did you do it or did you let rainy day do it? So many questions today!

    I have project after project to do, but many of them can’t be done until I have a major yard sale.

    I am excited for you. That seems really fun. Interior design is a great way to unleash that creativity.

    March 29, 2010 at 10:40 am (8 years ago)

    I still can’t wait to see your room when you finish! I’m excited about it like it’s my room! You are such a go-getter. I don’t think there is anything you need to learn from the classes. Your style is def. on point.
    And you got an award from The Lennoxx!

    That is exciting news! I have no doubt that you will have a fabulous career. You are fortunate to live in an area of the country where your talents can be fully utilized too.

    And yes, I have a million projects I want to complete. Good thing the weather is warming up and my garage can become painting central.

    I completely missed this post:( I am so happy and excited for you and your descision to go back to school! I can’t wait to hear about all the things your learning. Hopefully, I’ll be joining you soon!

    And about your projects, someone once said that “everything you touch turns to gold” and that’s the only thing I agree with them on! I know that when you do get around to finishing them, they’ll look great! Hey, if you sale that armoire, can I buy it?!!!
