Well, first....anyone who reads my blog knows that I have a bad case of ADD -- I get excited about projects, crafts, ideas, colors ALL the time, I make big plans, and then I move to something else completely different!! :-D
Here's a small list of things I've wanted to work on in the past few weeks.....
antique-glazing my walls
painting a cabinet that's next to our couch
painting my kitchen island
making a penny rug
making a gingerbread garland
making twine candy canes
And some other things I've thought of, but haven't mentioned here....
drying orange and lemon slices
making apple jam
painting plates to look like redware
making grungy candles
stenciling canvas to make a table runner
Oh, so many more!!
So this weekend started normally -- we went to the thrift store and I got some pretty cool treasures.....
We also got a few stuffies for our furry babies (so little Minnie will stop trying to tear up my socks and pillows and cloths and....).....
I also grabbed two heavy pots, one small and one bigger, for melting wax -- they were $1 and $2.
AND, I found out that on Tuesday (coming up), the thrift store is have an "Everything 50% Off" sale!! My plan is to go there and buy a bunch of wool jackets and take them apart and felt the wool! Isn't that a great idea? :-D We'll see.....it might be VERY crowded and not worth being there, but I should be able to at least get a few things....I'm really looking forward to it!
Anyway, I was contemplating which projects I could work on, what was exciting to me, and a golden opportunity presented itself to us......we had an the ability (with help from a coupon and a some luck)
to get the main supplies for our KITCHEN FLOOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Can you believe that....? We got the tile and backing board.........
Here is a close-up of the tiles (well, one of them!).....
So naturally, I haven't really been able to concentrate on anything else since we got the tile on Saturday! LOL Every time I start thinking about working on something, my mind wanders to my tiles and I have to go look at them again.....then I make plans on the best way to start the floor, and what else we need, etc -- I already have TWO lists started about it! Hahaha!!
This should help you understand why I'm so thrilled.....
(I'm trying not to feel embarrassed and exposed about showing the unattractive, unfinished parts of my kitchen....)
You can see how excited Minnie is about the whole thing, too.....
Tomorrow I will post a picture of the tiles laid all out - what fun, what fun!! - and anything else that I forgot about doing in all this excitement! I think I'm supposed to cook something or paint something....hmmm, I'll have to try and remember.....! LOL ^-^
