my craftiness (in more ways than one!)

Just a quick post...checking in with nothing to say, really...but I went to Michael's yesterday and bought just a few things. Have you ever noticed how easy it is to buy crafty things, but how difficult to actually DO something with them? For me that's the case, anyway. I find if I don't follow my vision right away for the things I purchase, they just get tossed in a closet to possibly never get used...or at least not for what I originally intended them, anyway. So I'll give you a little list, and you can try to guess what I'm going to use them for:

silver craft paint
rounded tip paint brush (about 1/2 inch)
white Martha Stewart coarse glitter w/ glittering glue

Here's another hint: there are two different projects represented here. Oh, I also selected some paint colors for my bathroom...and a new light fixture...and am going to schedule painting for next week. My husband will be out of town. Isn't that the best time to work on projects? Especially those that he might complain about the money spent on them. He'll just come home, and - voila! - I'm just sure the bathroom will look like it's from the pages of a magazine! (wink) At which point he will be so overcome by its beauty he will neglect to ask how much it cost. Hmm. If you know my husband at all, you will know this is a bit of a pipedream...but hey! A woman can dream, right??


  1. Are you painting a design on the wall?... Maybe some pretty swirly things?

    If I had a dollar for every time I bought supplies that I didn't use, I could install those hardwood plank floors I have been wanting!

  2. Good luck with painting while hubby is gone-Why can't they just enjoy what beautiful things we have done to our homes, without talking about how much it cost??? Look forward to seeing your new bathroom.

  3. Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesssss! I just commented on Caren's blog that I have tons of bags of craft supplies on my dresser getting dusty. If I don't get crack-a-lackin' soon, they'll never get done. I'm not a huge crafter...I don't know why I think I'm going to ever be. lol

    I have NO idea what you are doing, but I am very intrigued!!

    Oh! And I started painting my son's shelf red yesterday. It needs another coat but it's raining cats and dogs today. :o)

  4. I buy stuff all of the time that I am sooo enthused about at the store and when I get home, it just collects dust.... When theya re gone is the BEST time to work on projects.. :) can't wait to see what you do!

  5. You are going to make a glittery "Boo!" banner for Halloween (or maybe I'm just hoping you will, since I want to and need inspiration, LOL ;-)

  6. I have no idea what you're up to, but I can't wait to find out! I'm not crafty at all, so I'm rarely tempted to pick up supplies for crafts. I just live vicariously through my talented and creative crafty friends like you! -Julia :-)


thank you for commenting, dahling! I can't wait to hear what you have to say. :-)
