How To ... Procrastinate?

I have a very serious DIY post today. This is not a joke! Ok, maybe it is. I've been so busy lately. And when I'm busy I tend to be in a state of denial and I might just procrastinate a little. The only good thing that comes out of this is that I usually get other things done that I haven't had/made the time for. So maybe it isn't procrastinating as much as a creative restructuring of my To Do list. Ha!

Here you go... How To Procrastinate in Three Easy Steps:

  1. Have LOTS of work to do. This could include work from a paying job, setting up your etsy shop (*ahem), house work, yard work, child rearing, etc.
  2. INSTEAD of actually getting some of the above done and satisfyingly crossing them off your To Do list, find something else to do. Example: Maybe a project idea comes to mind, like displaying your babies' home-from-the-hospital-outfits in a shadow box. Begin to imagine how you might make that dream project a reality.
  3. GO TO MICHAELS. This is always the perfect start to perfect procrastination. I mean this could lead to HOURS of procrastination.

So there you have it. Procrastination is as easy as 1, 2, 3. 

And, so you're not left hanging, here are some lovely iPhone pics of how I put the above steps into practice. See, you can do it, too!

Lovely shadowboxes found at Michaels. Originally $29.99 and I got them on sale for $13.50! From left to right: Emma, Aiden and Eli. :)

Here they are on the wall which leads down to the basement playroom. It's been bare for two years. Another reason not to wait one more second! Even though I had lots of other things needing to be done. ;)
