Time must have wings...

Happy Tuesday!

I'm happy to say I'm finally getting back into blogging again and am seriously trying to catch up on reading all your lovely blogs. I can genuinely say "I MISSED YOU!" :)

I was reviewing some of the older posts on my own little section of the blogosphere and saw this...


Seriously?! 6 whole posts in the first 4 months of 2014. What's wrong with you Melissa???? Get your butt in gear!.

1 Post for all of February and April and nothing in January. SERIOUSLY????

OH! And here's the kicker - I forgot about my Blogoversary!


I can honestly say I don't think I realized quite how absent I've been of late :( It's only recently that I've been getting a real itch to get back to the finer, less DIY more crafty things in life. I miss it terribly. There's nothing I love more than stitching a few 'x's at the end of the night during my favourite TV show or running a bit of fabric through the machine at the crack of daybreak. 

Myself and Phil took yesterday off from the house, and despite the fact that we were crazy busy during the day shopping for the house rather than working ON the house.... despite the fact that the only time I get to myself these days is often spent soaking the ache out of my bones in a bathtub.... at the end of the day, when the hand on the clock was headed for 7pm I found myself BORED OUT OF MY MIND. 

If I was still in my teens, this would be an excellent turn of events. I would have thought "YEY! 3 hours to veg out of the couch and watch TV or go for a drive with friends or even to play some sort of video game". While I still like doing some of these things even now was an adult, I find it beyond difficult to spend any down time I might have not doing something productive. I've turned into my teen self's worst nightmare. But you know what??? I love it! More power to you adult Melissa!!! 

I kid you not. I cannot wait to get home today and start the next project! Will it be hanging some doors? Or perhaps painting the study? Or maybe even sanding down the walls/ceiling of the living room????

When the house is finally allll finished, I'm not sure if I could ever go back to a slower pace of life. I imagine doing more crafty projects, I imagine making curtains for my new house, I imagine more DIY projects. I don't ever want to stop :)

SO prepare yourselves for an influx of blog posts! This girl got a lot to show you from here on out!

Until next time!
