November 30, 2006

Wow - this decorating project has turned into a much bigger project than I thought! I'm not saying I'm backing out or stopping or anything... it's just a lot more work than I was hoping for. For instance, I didn't think that I would be camped out on the couch in the living room for weeks waiting for the paint to dry.

How was I supposed to know that winter was a bad time to attempt an interior design project? Apparently it's a lot tougher to get paint to dry when it's cold outside... who knew? And I had to choose a color that took a million coats before it looks decent. I've just always wanted a red room. I'm going with a real '80s theme, so I've got one bright red wall, the rest are white and then black trim.

Thanks to my on-again-off-again sewing hobby I've managed to sew some pretty cool black and white checked curtains. I'm also making a bunch of throw pillows with the same material and I'm trimming them with red vinyl. They've also been a lot more work than I thought they'd be but they look so awesome!

I got the material at this discount fabric store so it was crazy cheap, the paint was left over from the prop room at school, so I still have a bunch of money from the budget my mom set for me. I'm thinking I'd like to get some sort of rug and maybe a comfy lounge chair for the corner of my room. I'll probably also grab a bunch of those super cheap frames from Ikea and make a collage of cool pictures of my friends and stuff on one wall.

It's been a fun project - I just wish it wasn't taking so long. With my luck it'll be Christmas before I'm finished. Oh that reminds me, I still have to start my Christmas shopping. I wonder what I'm going to get everyone... I hate buying for my family, they're just so difficult to think of things for. What are your families like - to buy for?

if you have any good gift giving ideas this year!

Peace Out,

Using steam is simple dear ^^ you just download it, make your account, then go to the store via the downloaded 'app', and buy the game.

Ask for it. I've done things before like that, where I've considered it an "early christmas/birthday/etc" gift.
