    I think this is what writers block feels like

    It seems like I've hit a creative wall. For some reason, my wit, humor, and even criticisms have run dry. I know! If I can't find it in me to criticize someone, it must be bad. I had been thinking of changing my blog template for a while, and as much as I love the Pyzam flowery cute ones, I just couldn't bring myself to be like everyone else. So I found this cute notebook one, and I liked it enough. I thought that would inspire me back into my norm, but alas, to no avail. So I changed the title of my blog. I'm always saying "Note to self..." followed shortly by "I forgot...". I think I get that from Momma. Still, no inspiration comes. I'm sure some of this has to do with the fact that I am currently living in a plain white generic looking house. I thought I'd be okay with neutral colors. Turns out, not so much. I should at least start hanging stuff on the walls, but I feel no inspiration for that either. What's a girl to do?

    Ask fellow bloggers, of course!

    I have a big empty room in my house. It's the first room you see when you enter the house. There is no furniture, only beige carpet and beige walls. I found these cute prints at, where else, Ikea, bought 3 of them, and plan to use them on the wall. But I want you to use them to create the space for me. I'll take pictures or links to stuff you think should go in my living room. Maybe that will inspire me out of this midwinter funk. Funk is a funny word. I knew a girl who's last name was Funk. I was always glad it was her and not me....

    So there you go. We're talking furniture, artwork, rugs, sculpture, knick knacks, pets, people, whatever. So have at it, and help a chick out!

    Poor Keli! What is your new address? I will UPS you some smart ass pills.

    Yup I like the notebook look-it is very scholarly and smart looking.

    Like the picture too. Your blank room will be stylin' soon.

    When I worked at IKEA I put many of those canvases away. I really like them. Maybe you could do an accent wall and pull a green or blue color from the canvas. I too like the notebook look:)Also maybe the funk has something to do with winter. We need some springtime soon, don't you think!

    Is this the same room that has the HUGE wall and the really tiny TV? Because if it is, I think you should just leave it like it is.

    Down with the neutrals. No good for a long winter. Take it from me...the long winter expert.

    Phoebe, the room with the tiny tv is actually coming right along. I've put 3 saddle bar stools under it, and I'm getting 2 ladder bookshelves, ie Pottery Barn, one for each side. I think this will give that huge wall a better sense of scale. Don't I sound smart.

    The room in question is completely empty. Nothing. Nada. Well, except maybe a box full of books that I keep "forgetting" to take upstairs.

    Laura, Please please please send me some of those smart ass pills! I'm desperate! 1206 Tulip Tree Ct. Lake Villa, Il. 60046!

    Gabe, you crack me up! A little Freudian slip, maybe?

    I remember that girl with the last name Funk. Didn't she work at HCP? OK I think your creativity would expound a little if you broke away from IKEA. Try something new!!!!

    What? That's like asking me to leave my homeland. But maybe you're right. Actually, I'm heading to the Amish Furniture Shoppe tomorrow to look at bar stools. Maybe that will help.

    And yes, she worked at HCP. She was honkin', and people would specifically ask for her NOT to do their hair. Sad.
