I used to be a master of procrastination, but lately I feel proud of being able to push through that feeling a bit more often and get things done bit by bit. I also feel like I’ve gotten better at getting to the bottom of why I’m procrastinating about something, so I can work through those feelings and finish the job.

If you’re a mom-to-be like me, or a newish mom still shopping for baby gear, I hope this post is somewhat helpful to you!

Name: Adele (10 months)Location: United States For Adele's room, Greg and I wanted something fun, bright, and cheerful, and a little bit geeky/steampunk without taking over the room with nerdiness (we'd considered, and dismissed, Portal, Mario, and pirate-ninja). I quickly latched onto a cheerful (5-legged) octopus image I'd seen somewhere and a bedding set that mixed a bunch of contrasting but color coordinated prints in a very fun way. Apartment Therapy Ohdeedoh
Tiny-Ass Apartment Crime and punishment meant something quite different as a kid. Common infractions were things like Refusal to Eat Green Beans, "Not Touching" Your Younger Brother, and Giving Yourself a Haircut. Your parents were judge, jury, and jailer, and your bedroom became your jail cell. The sentence: Until After Dinner.
COCOCOZY Last week I mentioned my latest exciting new license partnership with Mirth Studio. This week, I'll go into a bit of detail. I am so proud to be a part of a fantastic new product release - painted wood tile floors with COCOCOZY patterns on them. Long story short.
It's that time of the week. The ones that made the cut but then didn't because I hummed and hawed and changed my mind. My stalking leftovers. Why? I'm very fussy. desire to inspire - desiretoinspire.net
