The Thing about starting projects

Is that you should only start ONE at a time!!  =)


Too late now!!

remember this?


it will hold treasures

that belong to this handsome little guy

see it in the corner there?

it is  white…

but it is still a work in progress!

When I asked Sammy if he wanted me to paint it

black, brown or white?

he choose WHITE

Because it is easier to spot a spider

if it tries to hide in it !!!  =)

Gotta love that spider fearing smart kid!!



Project 2…

this old baby crib board

it is currently driving me crazy!!!

have I ever mentioned I have NO patience

when it comes to projects

and waiting!!

*** ugh***

the waiting  is KILLING me!!

I skip steps to avoid waiting!


you see

when you use this


you are supposed to let it set for 3 days

before you can use chalk on it!!

3 days after you put on the last of like 4 coats!!

I have used this very chalk board paint before…

I just forgot about the waiting!!


speaking of  patience

or a lack there of…

forget that I was “supposed” to sand it in between coats!!

oops.   =)

Hope that step isn’t really important!!

because I am dying to use this!!!

2 more sleeps!

I LOVE love the new giant chalk board!!

hope it works alright

since I skipped a step or two!! =)

There you have it folks…

if you have an old baby crib board laying around

You too can have a giant chalk board!!

(when your babies are grown)

please don’t start laying your baby on the floor to sleep

just so you can have a COOL  giant chalk board like me!!  =)

(in case you were wondering it is the board that holds the crib mattress!)

ah ha ha ha

Moving on…

The 3rd project I started last week during this stupid “itch” …

did I say that out loud??!

Anyway… really moving on…

My momma’s old sewing stool

What is Wrong with me??

Starting SO many projects at once?

hubby and I had  a few good laughs today about it

God blessed me with a man of laughter !!  Amen!

Anyway… we laughed about my crazyness!

about our kitchen/dining area being upside down in paint, fabric, tools,

paint brushes, stools, boards, treasure chests, etc. etc…

Never Mind  I am still under a mountain

of 11 x 17 enlarged photocopies of Sammy school work

also all over my kitchen/dinning area as well!!  *sigh*

Please don’t come to visit me anytime soon, m’kay?!!


So this sweet little chicken

went with me to the local fabric store to pick out fabric

here she is being cheeky with my broken camera!

isn’t my broken camera being nice…


We picked out some new fabric to recover the seat on the stool

it was in this family of fabrics… wink, wink!

another good photo taken with Mr. Broken Camera

by that sweet little chick above!

The stool base now looks like this…

but you are going to have to wait a little longer

to see the fabric!!

All that to say…

Three out of five projects I started this week

are coming along nicely!

Just call me the


Because in the middle of ALL that…

I decided to try and bake the perfect Pumpkin Scones AGAIN

Take 2… they were still not my favorite!

(still not Starbucks quality!)

OH… speaking of…

when I said that out loud at the dinner table

my little man said…

“So Mommy you are saying you like Starbucks baking better than your own?”

smart kid!!   how rude!!  =)

but it is true!!  Starbucks Pumpkin Scones were better than these!

One day…

One day I will make a pumpkin scone yummier than Starbucks!

take that Starbucks!!  =)

Seriously, what am I still doing here?!!

I should be reading your blogs…

right after I have a 6 1/2 hour sleep

b/c I stayed up WAY too late …


bub bye!!

    You’ve been doing all kinds of things. I love the chalkboard.

    Wish I could help you with the scones. But Starbucks are going to be pretty hard to beat. Can’t wait to see it when you do.

    O.K…Missy..I am totally impressed. Obviously procrastination is not your weakness! I would have gathered the supplies for all of these projects…finished one..and the others would have slowly made there way to the “waiting room” in our basement!! Yes…I have a waiting room!!

  • 8 Jen Gacek yazmış:

    You got farther than I ever would have! Did I mention I can’t sew?! I like the choice of fabrics….can’t wait to see the finished product!
    those scones look good…you can send em our way! I’ve never had a Starbucks one so I have nothing to compare it to!

  • 9 mel yazmış:
