Maybe this is true of everyone? Or are some people wired more that way than others? Well, at any rate, I was feeding that need (poorly) by trolling Pinterest and pinning ideas that excited me. Not bad, but better is stopping now and following through on the best of those ideas. I have, um, many pins. Plenty of inspiration. Now I am going to siphon some of that into a good does of doing.
That has prompted me to learn something about myself. The side of me that wants to be artistic and free-spirited, and the side of me that craves order and structure and symmetry, are having a hard time working together to design a gallery wall in my living room. And Pinterest is not much help here: there are just too many images of gallery walls on the interwebs. I like many of them- both the careful, symmetrical, and matchy, and the organic, messy, and varied. I think I am going to just have to throw one up on the wall using 3M Command hooks so that I can juke past my perfectionistic defenses and move on.
We've lived here seven years and need more on the walls. It's time to commit.
I'll let you know if I survive the pressure.
