Ever have those weeks where you can never get anything finished? How about a whole month?
I feel somewhat guilty. I started a blog and then had nothing to post. We are all busy; other life obligations sometimes get in the way of the things we really want to do. Please accept my apologies along with this partial excuse. (I can’t believe I am about to pull the “I am sorry, but…”) In my defense I am a good starter, just not an excellent finisher.
Since everything I am working on is taking time, I thought I would give you a peak into what I have been up to.
About a minute after starting my blog, I realized hey I am not ready for this. I have a cape cod and a large room upstairs that is barely touched but houses my craft stuff, my extra clothes and serves as a seldom used family room/office. It didn’t take me long to figure out if I was going to post projects and I was going to try to use stuff I already have for many of those projects I better fix it up. I give you the following pictures, not with pride, but with the understanding if I am going to share my life sometimes I have to share the ugly.
I am sure I have mentioned this before: I love Pinterest!!! I have an “E” in almost every room in our home. The initial is for our last name. Since my first name and last name share the same initial, I have to clarify this. I saw quite a few takes on the initials and had to try one out. ec is where I am at right now with this project. Surprisingly it takes the glue a while to dry. I have to let it dry in one area before I can start another.
I saw this gallery wall on a pin the lead me to Tatertots and Jello’s blogpost on creating a family gallery wall. Seriously this post totally change how I think about my entryway. I already read her blog and was glad I saw the pin that linked me to this gorgeousness. In a earlier post, I showed you how I painted my radiator. Sooner or later, I will post what Tatertots and Jello inspired me to create.
Roxy is bell trained. If she needs to go out she rings her set of bells. I couldn’t redo the entryway without fixing the mess that is her bells. I have maybe 15 minutes left of work to complete this. Really I have no excuse for this one. I could use a swift kick of motivation, since Roxy’s longing look she gives me when she stands where her bells once were doesn’t seem enough for me to get this job done. I am a bad dog mother.
Did you ever get Craigslist buyer remorse? It took my husband and I a mere five minutes after we loaded this shelf into the car. It was purchased as part of the effort to organize my supplies. I have already thought of another use for it so for now I am reserving my right to change my mind on its purpose. This is particle board so painting it takes time. I really want those layers to cure.
Well enough whining for now. Maybe I should do a little less talking and a lot more working. How about you, what do you have waiting to get finished? Do you ever feel like starting a project is your thing?
