Teetering on the edge of burnout, my instincts are telling me to stop everything I’m doing and build in space and time for piddling around the house. I love piddling. I find it extremely relaxing, creative, and energizing. I love rearranging furniture, creating little functional spaces here and there, making wish lists of what each room needs (a candle? a photo frame? a rug?) to make it more cozy, getting out the candles, the vases, and eating my mom’s extremely yummy chocolate chip banana bread while doing all of the above.
Tulips inside, autumn on the outside – a view from the kitchen sink.
Totally rearranged the living room. While I was at it, I put this large photo of baby True up in the front window – love that sweet face! Psst, if you like that frame, here’s one just like it 🙂
Those giant dahlias came from our front yard and that giant vase came from my new fave store (home goods). Notice the plate wall, friends. It’s in progress and it’s fair to say I’m obsessed with plates at the moment. And fresh flowers. And candles. And soup. Hello, autumn!
One of the perks of licensing is that you get free samples. Imagine my happy dance when the large wall piece you see above (huge, really) arrived at my house – a sample from my home decor line! It’s a large magnetic wall piece that doubles as a shelf. Totally pefect above John’s little desk area in our kitchen. Notice the sunlight. It’s the best part.
Hi, I'm Kelly Rae Roberts!
Before I picked up my first paintbrush at the age of 30, I was a medical social worker. I followed my whispers and started playing with paint and everything changed.
Now I’m a full-time artist, author and Possibilitarian, who helps women explore and nourish their creative souls.
