I am still learning

So I have been reading what I can to try and figure out this whole blogging thing.  So this post is going to be me trying to see if I know how to post a picture to my blog.  I don't really think that it matters that I am not posting about anything because I am pretty sure that I am here alone.  So if no one is reading then no one will be disappointed...Bonus.  So here goes.
It is a picture of my oldest and youngest son at baseball.

Hopefully you can see this picture too, oh wait I forgot I am the only one reading this. :)

Soon I will be a master blogger and will then really get down to all the interior design nitty gritty!!
Until that happens Have A Great Weekend.

Staple Gun frustrations!

So along with desperately trying to figure out the whole blog thing I am also in the middle of trying to reupholster a chair.  Not the one that I mentioned before, an awesome Goodwill desk chair from the 40's that I got for $10.  I will hopefully have a post all about it as soon as I can figure out how to post pictures, or how to get them off my phone and camera.  Until that happens I do have one thing on my mind that I would like to discuss.  Why is it that with all of the technological advancements that we cannot have a staple gun that actually gets the staple/brad all the way in?  If I wanted to hammer a bunch of stuff I would do it the right way and use upholstery tacks.  I have now taken a vow to invent a staple gun that actually works!!  Did you hear that staple gun guys, I am coming for ya.  Watch out.
(Disclaimer:  I have no intention/know how to invent a staple gun that actually works.  I do however have frustration and making threats seems to make it feel better)  Back to upholstery and smashing my thumb and forefinger with the hammer because I stink at hammering and I don't have a staple gun that actually works!

Help! I don't know what I am doing!!

So there I was trying to decide whether or not I ( a mere mortal) could reupholster a chair.  I decided that the internets knew everything so I would search and see if I could get information on reupholstering said chair.  I did a google search trying to find articles or videos on how hard it was to do, and bam I stumbled across a blog.  Now up until this moment I thought that blogs were some mysterious social media thing that computer nerds did to talk about gigabytes or whatever.  I had no idea that people just like me were talking about things that I thought about.  I have long been obsessed with all things home and design, sometimes it is all that I think about (well that and what is for dinner).  The blog that I came across was called "The Creative Maven"  I quickly read through all of her posts (she has since quit blogging).  I thought that it was the only one of its kind...until I discovered that there are more, so many more.  I have spent the last 6 weeks reading all about all things home. Then last Saturday while I was reading the Nester, inspiration came.  It hit me like a bolt of lightning, I too would blog.  So I made a blogger account and here I am.  Now however I have lost the honeymoon inspiration stage and have now arrived at pure panick stage.  I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO DO THIS!!  All the housey blogs look so pretty how hard could it be...I have no idea what I am doing.  Now I am on a mission to learn what I can, and I will figure it out.  In the meantime, I will continue to take pictures of the projects that I doing.  You know for the future posts that may or may not make it to the internets.  Fingers crossed!!
