HOUZZ

I am working to adapt the way I seek and compile - synthesize, if you will - information. This obviously has been facilitated greatly by my dive into the world of IOS but, by default, I still don't think "I wonder if there's an app for that?" as a first line response. I'm getting there, however, and my iPad2 is making it much easier.

If you follow me on Facebook you might know that I am in the process of purchasing a home and am scheduled to close on April 29. It's a cute little garden home - 2 bedroom 2 bath with a 300 sq. ft. loft and (dramatic introduction) a spiral staircase! My friends who knew me when I lived at Pinnacle Valley Farm in Little Rock might get a sense of deja vu when they see it, and I honestly am sure I loved it because it invoked that same sense of such an amazing year in me as well. But I'm not going to lie, the one time in my life I had food poisoning happened when I lived in the barn and slithering down spiral stairs at 2 a.m. in search of water is most def a lowpoint for me so I'm thrilled that my new home won't require sleeping upstairs!

There's a lot "right" about the place, but obviously things I want to change pretty quickly and I'm super excited about it. It's really the project/purpose I've been missing in my life for awhile now and, God knows, for a Cancer - a middle child Cancer, even - I need me my nesting space!

I wanted to get all fancy and do a design board, and still may, but in random shopping last night stumbled upon an iPad app for Houzz. It's really cool and you can do all sorts of inspiration/ideabook stuff with it (check out the gadget and ideabook I added to the right side of this blog post), and that's the stage where I am right now. It's interesting, too, that sometimes as a creative sort it only takes a slight shot to reprime the well. I've gotten a bit flat over the past few years and I'm really grateful to be reinspired.
