NaNo & More Bedroom

Of course, NaNo is a huge challenge, and I'm trying not to be discouraged by how hard I'm finding it. I thought the first week was supposed to pass in a rush? Only the first day did for me. However, as I have never finished anything longer than a couple pages, the fact that my page count is at 12 is very encouraging. I can do this. At JCF (Cherry Forums), there is a thread called "I am a great writer" which discusses (among other things) how what you say, and what you believe, affect your reality. I am a great writer.

So, Saturday night - after I made my 1667 for the day, I finally put up my shelves, and unpacked the candles and frames. I'm pretty pleased with the way they look. The ribbon on the upper left corner is to neaten up the edges, but I don't think it's the right trim yet. *sigh*
These are my favorite set of shelves, but they were a nightmare to hang, since they needed to align. Although I was temped to hang them with a gap between them, but then my mistakes trying to hang them would show. In the end, I'm glad I didn't give up...
This is a shelf for my home office (which was already painted lemon yellow, but I like the lightness among all the bookcases and desks. I'm excited that it's back to being a home office, for the five weeks I painted the bedroom, I slept on a futon mattress on the floor of the office.

Renee hearts ~d! Glad you like the walls, sweetie.
