temporary blogging addiction

after only posting once a month for the past several months i can only conclude that my recent fetish for posting is a temporary addiction that will pass once the glamor of my blog's facelift has worn off. but until that happens expect more posts that doubtlessly have little to do with art. one would think that since i'm putting all my efforts into avoiding working on my kitchen i would be creating art to pass the time, but nope not me. in order for me to to justify my avoidance of the kitchen to myself i am working on other parts of the house which have nothing to do with the kitchen. i anticipate this justification of working on other areas of the house will continue working until the rest of my house is in better shape than the half remodeled kitchen. to the right is a fairly recent shot of my kitchen taken after the flooring was installed. it saddens me to admit that the rest of my house is worse off than this photo. so until the rest of the house has caught up to the current level of "niceness" my kitchen has achieved i will continue to avoid working on the kitchen unless i absolutely must.

now, in other more exciting new i received my very first comment yesterday. small peanuts to must people, but not to me. i would like to thank my friend for unwittingly making my day.

just a little taste

here is a little shot of what i've been working on for the last several months.



bathroom is done save for the trim. now i just need to focus on the kitchen even though i have an itchin to redo the porch first.

playing around

sorry to say, but i'm still mostly tied up in house remodeling. i've been itching to revamp the look of the blog ever since i noticed blogger came out with a new designing interface and i have to admit i'm loving it. especially after taking a dip into the wordpress.com (mostly for work purposes) world and hating it. i do wish i could upload my own background images, BUT i can't really complain because they have so many options AND they allow you to edit the CSS which means i believe i could add my own background if i really wanted as long as i put the file on my web server first.

i'm going to let this revamp look stew for a while before tinkering some more with it. i like the clean look, but it just might need some more color. we'll see though.

if you haven't noticed i've started to add a few 'gadgets' to the panels of my blog. the one i'm most interested in pointing out is the poll on the right hand side.

until we meet again! ;)
