|My living room is slowly coming together |
(with lots of help from friends, because I'm a lousy designer)
Chaos leads to creation. I read that somewhere, and when I look around my house, littered with boxes of books, pictures, lamps, CDs, china, and stemware I don't know where to place, I sure hope it's true.

It's been 3 weeks, and I've finally folded up the last box and passed it on to another intrepid woman in the midst of packing up her home. I've shelved the books, stacked the shoes, and retired the toys to the toy box.
Don't misunderstand. Chaos still reigns, but now that the boxes are gone, I can finally see potential. Now the furniture can be arranged, the rugs laid down, the pictures hung. Now the creative process of transforming a house to a home can begin.
