goth with pops of pink

I love clothes and shoes and accessories.  ALOT.  ALOT.  I had to type that twice to emphasize my love of these things.  I’m not proud of this, but It’s a blessing from God that I love to shop thrift stores or our financial situation might be in a world of hurt.  I realized just how much I love these things yesterday driving to a work consultation with Christina and Kelly.  Kelly said, I feel like every time I see you, you have a different purse.  This made me stop and think.  I realized that Kelly has been carrying the same purse since I met her over a year ago.  Her purse is super cool, an amazing yellow leather, and small enough that she never “loses” her cell phone 15 times a day like someone else I know.  I thought about how easy and simple this would be to just have one purse.  Never changing the contents out, not having 6 bags fall on your head when you’re tying to get the one on the bottom, not having to store them or make room for them, never freaking out that your cell phone is forever lost.

For a brief minute I tried to convince myself that when I got home I was going to choose one bag/purse and donate the rest.  Then I started thinking about how much I love change.  I love change in my world, in my home, and on my person.  I think this comes from growing up in a military family where we had to move every 3 years.  I LOVE new things, whether it’s visiting a new city, sewing a new pillow for my living room, or carry a different purse then I did the day before.  My style changes all the time.  Sometimes I dress very hippy like with lots of flowy flowery prints, sometimes all I wear are t-shirts and jeans, then I go through my anthropologie on the cheap stage, followed by my goth stage with all black with black leather boots.

My office changes as much as my clothes do.  This doesn’t mean I run out and buy all new things.  NOPE.  This means I paint my desk, I trade lamps with my daughter, I display my yarn for unexpected pops of color.  I’m in a very girly stage, inspired once again by The Nester.  Here is how I jazzed up my office with pops of pink!!!

pouf envy and what I did about it

 Working for the redesign company is beyond awesome.  I love every single last thing about it.  However, I do have one little itty bitty complaint.  I want to take everything home!!!!!  All the beautiful new furniture, and pillows, and throws, and accessories, and POUFSSSS!  I think I have the hardest time with the poufs.  I want them all.  I’d like to think that I’ve never really been a materialistic person….that is until the pouf came along.  Just look at how Christina teases me… angela statzer

See what I mean!!?!  Totally teasing me with all that pouf fabulousness!

Sooooo I’ve been dreaming about a pouf.  I went to West Elm for work the other day, Ahhhh anytime you say you went to West Elm for work, it’s a good day.  Anywho they had all their rug samples for sale!  I think they were $4.00 each and then I had my 20% off card, so around $3.00 each I think (math is not my thing, neither is cooking or vacuuming).  I was going crazy with all the possibilities for these rug samples.  My first thought was to buy a bunch and make one giant rug.  Then I started talking to my friend Angela who works there (she’s so super cool and I especially love her name) and we came up with all sorts of ideas for these samples..wall art, car floor mats, under shoes when you walk in, under dog bowls, or a few sewn together for a doormat.  Then it dawned on me, POUF!!!

Angela Statzer So I bought some samples.  And hand sewed them together.  Ouch.

Angela Statzer I didn’t want to spend a ton of money on foam or filler or whatever you stuff a pouf with.  Christina wasn’t on to me when I kept volunteering to haul the trash after our redesigns.  I was slowly but surely stuffing my pouf with all the paper and packing goods left over from work.  You can now call me Angela the environmentalist, oh and Angela the zipliner (I did that the other day)!!!

Angela Statzer My $18.00 pouf.

Yes it did take me 25 years to hand sew that together and then I couldn’t use my hands for a week because of all the blisters, BUTTTT I love it so much and it makes me so happy and the most important thing is I don’t have pouf envy anymore.

The end.
