I’m in love with my photo studio.
This time of year, my home tends to turn really cave like, so I’m really grateful to have the light that this room offers. Light, bright, wide opens spaces, who couldn’t use a room like this?
Yes, I lounge in here with my matching cute white outfit (that makes me look 10 lbs skinnier), perfectly done hair and create the most amazing unique shoots. Then clean up the room again each and every time to perfection, only to go cook up the perfect dinner right out of a Pinterest board, in my spotless kitchen. Life is good!
Does this room, it’s neatness and my oh so perfect life make you jealous?
Yep, me too. Why?
Because the above isn’t reality. I’m totally messing with you. It really looks like the photo below all the time.
Yes, this is more like it.
It’s full of all my piles of finery…
and unfinished messes…
and even some building I’ve been doing for FOLK Magazine.
Right. And then there was that Google Hangout… The above lovely, quaint shot was total smoke and mirrors, friends.
Because this is what the room really looked like. Or rather… looks like! Including the rest of the house.
( I’m so glad I watermarked this because I think it’s liable to go viral on Pinterest )
Messes are hard to deal with. And stressful. I’ll often tease myself into being ok with it and to chalk it up that a messy home is a creative home, and all those cute sayings that give us license to live in a hazardous tornado zone.
But truth be told, there comes a time when enough is enough. So… I’ve been cleaning.
I’ve even got my son on board. He gutted the tupperware cupboard today and he’ll tackle something else tomorrow. It’s as if I finally woke up and saw what we had done all around us.
But I’ve been splitting it up. Cleaning, writing, creating, working, then cleaning some more. That helps me get through the stuff I really don’t want to do.
I didn’t take a picture of the exploded cupboards my son was working on nor me gutting the bathroom linen closet with towels and amenities spread throughout. We just quietly went about our business and started getting things back on track again. And it’s feeling so. much. better! Plus I can close my linen closet door again. Score!
But.. you know what I’ve gone and done now that the house was relatively clean, don’t you?
I’ve ripped out Christmas and am in it full speed ahead with no floor space in sight!
