When I feel overwhelmed and I do often, I turn my anxiety into beauty. I think I’ve always used this as a defense mechanism, but as it turns out it’s a great way to avoid burnout!
I usually have a mental checklist of ideas I want to put together but every so often I find something and I think hmmm…that would make a nice accent for my (insert random room in a home).
So after having a combo work, thanksgiving host, friendsgiving host and cleaning my house 4 times in 5 days… I let my creative freak flag fly!
Here was the result….
I found this peice of wood in my “I’ll do something with this someday” pile, sanded it, distressed the edges and added hooks.
After it was finished I was planning to attach a bell that I had laying around in my Christmas stuff, but it needed more…
So I gave it a flower and some glitter and boom, Winter will be welcomed on my front door.
How are you guys making life more sparkly? Leave me some feedback!
