I was all ready to show you my son’s birthday party today when I came across these photos on my computer.
When my son was a baby, I began drawing on the walls of our media room with pencil. After a few days, my sketches were done. I knew the only way I would finish the project that I imagined in my head, was to mark up the walls. In doing this, I would be forced to paint over them or be stuck with pencil marks on my white walls.

I remember being super busy that year with work, plus I was a new mom with a baby at my side day and night who wouldn’t sleep. But I still made time to paint a little each day. Eventually the room was finished and beautiful. I couldn’t stop looking at it.
Looking back, I’m very happy I took my pencil and started drawing, not waiting until I had the time or consulted with a “real” mural painter. If I had waited, there would still be white walls.
In reading this, I hope you’re inspired to start something you have imagined for yourself. Whether it be a project, blog, new business or hobby… begin now and eventually it will be what you imagined.
