ADD decorating

While following LifeinGrace, Edie talks about being ADD. If you aren't reading her blog, go ahead and visit. You will thank me. I realized, while literally laughing out loud reading her posts that I am definately ADD as well. Seriously, I started painting my kitchen island in July and it's not entirely done. Well, let me rephrase this. I sanded, primed, painted and poly'd the kitchen island from start to finish. But I didn't do the doors and drawers, until tonight almost 6 months later. I'm getting it done though right?

Some projects I whip out like you can't believe. Others can drag on and on and on and ON! I am showing you some pictures I would probably never post on here. But I need to do this to hold myself accountable! My boys will turn nine on Friday (which I can't believe) and I will have 30 people in my house on Saturday night! So these drawers and doors need to be DONE! And then I can reveal it in his glory.

Do you have projects that drag on? I am a person that I'm in creative mode or NOT. There is no inbetween for me. I'm either painting, decorating, rearranging and ripping something apart or I'm doing nothing creative. And let's not even TALK about sidetracked! I will go downstairs in the basement to frame a few prints and two hours later I walk upstairs with baby pictures, some fleur de lis tacks and the prints are still on the craft table with no frames on them. I digress. FOCUS Kristi, FOCUS! :)

Oh girl. I feel your pain. I've got to get my butt in gear and get some things done. Lots on my to do list this year for sure!

Hi Kristi, I am delighted you found my blog and I look forward to seeing you often. There are a lot of us just like you. You should see my work table in my studio. I have a million projects started and my mind is just racing with more things I want to do. I need 48 hours in the day. Love your blog! xo Lynn @ the VintageNest
P.s. If you have time join in on the Pink Saturday and the Valentine party coming up. The "how to's" are on my sidebar.

Thanks for the email, sorry it took me all weekend to visit. I just try to rejoice that there is that creative side to my brain, even if it is very dysfunctional sometimes! I'm sure your project will turn out splendid!
lots of love,

So far I'm enjoying your blog. I love the chalkboard in your entry and I'm also a friend of Edie's. We both started blogging and homeschooling last year so we had to lean on eachother. :) I am glad to see there are other ADD'ers out there. It's just so hard to stay focused in a world w/ so many things to steel our attention, isn't it?

I am a 50-something year old ADD'er. For me, it's only gotten worse and I was hoping it would get better! Love your chalkboard frame! Gives me an idea {if I can follow through before I forget}! LOL Stop by and visit me sometime.
