okay…..i admit it…..this may be my 5th or 6th attempt in my life to start a blog. i can’t seem to commit to a blog because

1)i’m indecisive

2)i’m not good with computers and

3)i don’t have the patience to blog the way i’d really like to blog

how would i like my blog to look? here are a few of my favorite bloggers that i’ll be using as my inspirations:

i admire this designer so much! http://www.ohjoystudio.com

this blog is a life saver especially for a first year art teacher like me: http://www.artprojectsforkids.org

i love this girl’s blog and etsy shop! i feel like our interests, and designs are on a similar wavelength, but she’s obviously a lot further along than me in the invitation department.


and visit her etsy shop:


since getting married, i’ve fallen in love with decorating!


Design Sponge is one of multiple awesome decorating sites.


i lo-ooooooove photography blogs. this blog is particularly addicting. check out this talented photographer in Lubbock, TX at

posting this blog has been more involved than i expected and has taken me about an hour and a half (ridiculous i know!). maybe one day i can be a blog expert like the bloggers i’ve posted, but until then visit for updates, recipes, photos and stories.

with joy: viv
