february discipline

song pair: Share by Cookie Monster & Ernie

hello february! it's nice to see you. the start of a new month means the beginning of another discipline. this one was created over the weekend. i have an ongoing list of potential disciplines, they were all trumped by one that arrived to my mind organically. sometimes the best things in life are unplanned.
february 1st i was surprised with a wonderful burst of creativity. i am often inundated with inspiration. there are countless beautiful images floating around the web. pinterest has spread ideas all over the globe.

i have started to believe maybe i am capable of replicating some of these projects i have admired. i have never considered myself a do-it-yourself girl, but with a little discipline anything is possible.
so my february discipline is: just make it. i hope to create/recreate a few lovely concepts.

the first one may seem a little silly. yes, i started very simple. i figured gaining momentum was important. accomplishing something small builds confidence.

i watched 'the khloe and lamar show' a few times, back in 2012. the family series is an occasional guilty pleasure. everything they do is grand. their lives are extravagant. but guess what i noticed? the cookie jars. did anyone else notice those cookie jars? the cookies were so perfectly stacked, it looked like an art form. three years later, i am still thinking about those cookie jars. wait, that's easy!

i bounced over to the container store to purchase a large round glass container--and then scooted over to my grocery to snag two family size boxes of double stuffed oreos.
voila! art on the counter! and easy access to an occasional after dinner treat!

how do you decorate your counter space? i like simple, uncluttered but bold!

i have already began day dreaming more do-it-myself adventures. 
they may get a little more complex, but not too much. stay tuned!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought those cookie/candy jars were amazing. Love your new treat jar! What a fun goal for February. Can't wait to see what you cook up next.
