Sindy's Blog - November 30, 2006

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,

Sindy

Thank you. I don't think it's puberty, though; there are reasons for this depression that I know of, but it won't be that simple to treat. One, my crush probably doesn't like me back, most definitely, my mom is screaming more often, and I have a lot of stress.
