It’s school break and that means lots of house time. Funny what I notice about my house after sitting in the same chair for hours.
Seeing things with a new perspective can help me think that I have created something new, without spending much money.
Take this drink stand I recently purchased. It just sat in the corner of my dining room, til Colette mentioned what a cool bird’s nest it could be when I wasn’t using it. All of a sudden, the shredded paper in the study had a purpose and everywhere we went, I started to notice all kinds of creative birds! I bought a few and am thinking I may be on to a new collection. I’m gonna work on this.
