Besides baking, I love to decorate my home as well. But since my boys are hyperactive kids, all the time is spent on cleaning and tidying up.. (sigh) They usually sleep late during these school break and like to eat after midnight.. so in the morning you can expect sticky floor due to spilled syrup, cookie crumbs and even sugar! but there's always food on the table in case they got hungry.
But now they're much bigger and understand well enough to stay off my things so I can look into spicying up the house a bit. not too much, at least in corners where they don't feel the 'itch' to start messing up.. :p
