Like I have said many times before, one of the main things I miss while going to school is the time to CREATE. I love writing, but there are not many creative writing assignments in Social Work, folks!
I did get a chance to hand in a cookie jar with pictures of all the ingredients of a chocolate chip cookie inside. Each picture had a write-up on the back relating that ingredient to my practicum experience. I think my professor loved it- she showed me the spot she put it on her shelf in her office! But really, that was about it!I have two weeks left of school and practicum for this year and already thoughts of what I could CREATE are creeping into my head....like visions of sugarplums.....
This particular craft-i-ness is about how you want your house to feel- what are you personality traits that you would like for others to feel when they enter your house. Mandi is all about creating a plan for your space and making it say something about who you really are.
Reminds me of my friend Rachel, an awesome decorator. When she decorates for a wedding, the first thing she does is ask about the couple getting married: what is special to them, what are their interests, what brought them together, what activities do they enjoy. Once she has collected a bunch of favorites, she then brainstorms and comes up with some ideas for a theme. She has done some AMAZING stuff from all of this.
And so I am coming up with my personality traits that I would like to shine through when you come into my house:Acceptance----Love----Fun yet Spiritual---Busy yet Calm---Uncluttered (cough cough, remember i said things I would LIKE TO shine through!!)colorful...peaceful...friendly
And so, during the next few months off school, I am focusing on creating a space that truly reflects who I am inside!!
Two weeks and counting......
