I’ve been slacking on blog posts and I know it. I hope I haven’t failed you … or your Christmas party. Ready for some emotional blogger stuff?
I feel a lot pressure to create for That’s so Michelle (and have a ton of ideas!) but have other responsibilities to my family and my professional life. As much as I’d like to be able to execute on all levels, I just can’t. I’ve been so busy that I haven’t been able to fall freely into my hobby, it’s felt really forced. Because of this, in my eyes, That’s so Michelle has lost it’s luster.
I think (pure honestly here) the excitement of That’s so Michelle having a book sucked some of the real life out of my blog over this past year. It’s become a business venture instead of a place to be creative and have fun.
I need to get back to my roots. Sharing awesome treats that I make for people in my life and the stories behind them.
Please forgive me while I zone out this holiday and try and find that magic again. The post below (and perhaps more to follow) is an exercise in inspiration.
I’ve been wanting to update my desk for awhile but couldn’t find exactly what I wanted. The X shaped legs were a must but I couldn’t find it large enough in white. Also my desk is in a little nook in our kitchen which has a country feel to it. All the white desks I found were too contemporary.
But Nick saved the day. He found this one and painted it. He also spoiled me with a new huge white monitor and wireless keyboard, mouse and speaker. It’s hard not to want to sit here all day because I love it so much!
All I need now is a pop of pink or coral. I was thinking some flowers behind the framed photo.
