Gallery Wall - Phase One

So, I have a bare wall that I'm ready to do a gallery wall. I don't know exactly what prints I want up there yet, but I thought I would share my phase one. Phase one is the planning phase in my house. I like to think about things for a while before I commit.

Let me know what you think and if you know of any good places to get art/prints.

There, I said it!

Alright, aside from the fact my computer repulses me, there are a few other reasons I've struggled with blogging. (My computer repulses me because I very literally spend 8 hours on it and when I get home I would rather stare into the sunlight than get back on the computer).

*Real quick, my big girl job is going great so far. I love being busy at work, I just wish I could learn to balance*

Okay, back to my original thought, why I've struggled with blogging lately.
1) I don't feel like what I have to say is important enough to blog about. 
I don't know when this shift of my thoughts and feelings being important to where I'm at now. I feel like these thoughts are so personal, that no one will relate. Or sometimes I don't think I have much of an opinion about ANYTHING! Seriously.

There are other times when I look at other peoples' blogs and say, "why do they think I care what they ate for breakfast, or what they wore, or how cute their kids are, or how blah blah blah blah." But you know what, it is important to someone. Moving on...

2) I feel small in the blogosphere. 
There is a certain bout of confidence that comes with blogging, and then there are certain insecurities. This ties back in with #1, but mostly it's just that I compare myself to others WAY too much.

I'm lazy. I've been lazy. I've been uninspired to do the necessary amount of work blogging requires.

There, I said it! I suck. But I can say with the most sincerity that I have, I will get better at this. I will find a voice, and I will be back to tear my blog up!
