It's the small things. The small things around my house that I notice and want to fix, change, or update. These small things make everything else "fit" in my mind. For instance, the space above our TV has felt a little sparse to me since we rearranged the living room.
I really wanted to fill in the space with more blocky-type objects. When I stood back and looked at the space, I thought that 2 objects would balance it well.
We have a clock and a small black & white photo that I thought would work well. I had a hard time visualizing where to place them and I did not want to make the mistake of putting them in the wrong place (especially since we have plaster walls). So I utilized Photoshop and played around with the placement.
Here's the first set-up:
Eh, wasn't crazy about it. Seemed a little off-balance.
Then I switched the placement to this:
Me likey. Thankfully, Photoshop allowed me to fix "this small thing" efficiently and easily.

In addition to Photoshop, a drill, and some plaster wall anchors, I would not have been able to easily execute this small-things-project without my little helper (even though she napped through it, she still helped).
