When we first moved into our home a couple of months ago I was in full nesting mode. Daniel was busy for about 2-days putting together all of our Ikea furniture. I was able to score some neat deals from HomeSense, and I was even able to find a nice picture of poppies for our kitchen.
However, lately I have been feeling like I would like to add some personalized things to our home. I love reading blogs, and there are a few blogs that I follow that truly inspire me in the home decor area.
There are just a few problems:
1. No money
2. No room (we live in a 1-bedroom apartment on-campus at Redeemer)
3. I'm not that good at this kind of stuff!
This week I began my journey to a cozier home. I bought two prints from Jessi at Naptime Diaries, a crafty blogger who loves Jesus!
Unfortunately, that is the extent of my decorating. I already got in semi-trouble from my husband for purchasing the prints (although once I showed him how pretty and Bible-versey they were he softened quite a bit!) We're just not in a stage in our lives right now where we can be decorating our home and creating fun things out of leftover material (or whatever crafty people do). Instead, I just feel blessed to have the home that we do. It's cozy, and comfortable; my husband can come home from work, put his feet up, and relax. That's what life is all about!
In the meantime, I'll just read blogs like this one, and be amazed at how God gives everybody such different and unique gifts!
