Creative Cave Accomplished!

CC 3

My view from the Creative Cave and the computer desk area. Rather cloudy and gloomy day but I like watching the clouds. The sun tries to peek out once in a while. It will be fun to watch it rain. 🙂 Earlier today I watched seven military helicopters go by and then four more flew by. 😉

Yesterday, I saw the prettiest blue bird on the tree that is to the left but behind the trampoline. I did not make it in time to get a picture. Darn it.

Eventually, the trampoline will be moved once we have it tied down to stakes in the ground. The wind gets pretty vicious around here. I see a lot of trampolines destroyed in the neighborhood so we are going to tie ours down good! 🙂

In the future, we will put up a fence then I can plant some pretty things to look at through the window. But for now, I will settle for the sky. 🙂

I want to try my skills at making a fairy garden that will be outside the window. building-garden-3

I foresee something like this in front of my window! 😉

I think it might spark some creative writing.

Hubby wants to put mostly decking out back so this would work pretty good. Step off the deck to the fairy garden! 🙂

Happy dreaming everyone! I need to get back to organizing my Creative Cave!

Hubby says, no excuse to write now!

True! 🙂

When Inspiration Strikes

I was planted on the sofa when a bright light bulb went off.

I can use the leftover green from the entryway to put some color above the fireplace. 🙂

Yes! It will be like a frame for decorating for holidays. Someday I would like to change the tile on the fireplace to something more decorative but for now I like it.

I think it will look good. I have to do some touch up painting and then I will take a finished picture with decorations.

There is an outlet for a TV but I like using the mantel for decorating, mostly because the cats have not found a way to get up there, yet. 🙂

I am slowly repainting the rooms. We bought the house last Fall and as we look closer at the walls we see the previous people did not match the tan color just right so there are spots everywhere. Eventually, all the walls will need painted. Weird thing is, there are no holes that they patched, so our guess is there were marks and they couldn’t get them clean or didn’t try. Funny.

Well, it worked other than when you are sitting and staring at the wall the spots begin to show. 🙂 I do that a lot trying to decide how to decorate. I still do not have all our photos up. I’m a procrastinator. Big time. 🙂

My inspiration for the green came from painting the entryway.

I will do a finished picture when I finish the artwork for this area. 🙂 I have not decided on the color for the other parts of the walls. It will be a neutral color like the tan or I am thinking a classy grey.

I will plant my butt back on the couch and decide. 🙂

Till later, have a great day! 🙂

Thanks for dropping by!

Creative Cave is Coming!

The beginning of my creative cave!

I am excited. I think hubby is too so I can get everything out of our bedroom. 🙂

I think it will spark me to write and do my art more.  🙂

My writing is coming along with the first novel. I have not begun the second novel yet for NaNo but that is OK. I feel really good after doing the edits on the first novel which had me dragging my feet for so long. It is already giving me more ideas for the second one. I know I will still have to do polishing edits but at least the structure is better than when I wrote during NaNo a few years ago. I kept putting off the edits because I was not happy with the story line. Of course, I shaved so many words out, it is now a mini novel. LOL

I think that will be ok. I like reading long and short novels so I hope others will too. 🙂 I may not be cut out for writing long novels, at least not yet. I think in time I will become better because I have read lots of new author books and they have really blossomed from their first book.

I think I want to release them close together so trying really hard to get it done. Perhaps in February and then April. This story is a trilogy so part three will be wrote after the release of the first two. The third may take a little longer but definitely be released in the Fall. 🙂

My goal!

If I do not write another blog before Thanksgiving, Happy Thanksgiving!
