Marker Girl Monday – The Art of Waiting


art of waiting

I saw the title  “The Art of Waiting” the other day.  And thought,  “So what is the art of waiting?” If you don’t really know what you want and are waiting for someone to tell you, waiting is what you really will do for a very long time. Or you can end up doing, creating, being something you don’t want.


A simple way to achieve this is to plan by collecting ideas from what you really love.  Then from those ideas visualize how you see it looking write 5 things. Those top 5 essential things. The art of waiting comes from taking time to allow it to come together and for some, waiting until they have the budget. So have that idea in place, hire someone to help if you need to, even ask those closest to you for guidance if you are stuck.

Waiting then is about just what you want and not because you couldn’t be patient enough to allow it to come true!

Color Recipes – Blueberry Mint

I am loving the shades blues and greens I am seeing around right now. You can mix them in with classic furnishings or be bold and go with a strong colorful look in your home. If you are not that bold, just adding a few accents can really make a stylish statement.

Check out my Blueberry Mint color recipe board for some ideas.
