Good evening ladies. A black and white post for you today. And the white is not coming from the snow outside. Can you believe we had another 10 inches of snow over the weekend. Me neither. And there is talk that we will actually have a white Easter this year. Crazy, I tell you, crazy! [...]
Got fifteen minutes? Then you can do today’s project: make a wood candle holder….. But first I want to say this: Oh you guys, thank you so much for your comments on Tuesdays post. I guess I was having a bit of an existentialist crisis. I really wasn’t fishing for compliments but I sure loved getting them. [...]
Hello my sweets, how are you doing? Can you believe January is almost over already?! Is 2013 living up to its expectations? How are you doing with your new years resolutions? Have the kilos (pounds) dropped off, have you quit smoking, training hours put in, house organized?
As always the start of the new year has made me want to get all organized, and decluttered and on time and everything. And all the posts I see everywhere about getting organized are not helping. Or maybe they are. They are definitely making me want to clean out a closet or two and organize my sock drawer.
January truly seems to be the month we are all blogging about organization projects. Guess we all want a fresh and clean start.
And all those posts infected me. Gave me the cleaning bug. So that is what I have been doing most of the weekend. After a quick trip to Ikea (more on that in the next post) I spent the better part of my Saturday working in the kitchen. Our Tupperware situation was getting out of hand and my overstuffed kitchen wall shelves were threatening to come down from the wall.
But order is back now. The shelves have been fortified so I can blissfully continue to pack them too full. All my little containers have been matched up with a lid and are stored in big bins (or have been tossed if they didn’t have a mate anymore), and I even gave the kitchen a quick swipe.
Wow, after that Saturday my Sunday had to be dedicated to playing, don’t you agree.
Howdie folks, how is everything going, have your Christmas cards been send, your cookies baked, your house decorated, the eggnog brewed? Over here I am still running around like a headless chicken preparing my posts for this series. But we are in the home stretch.
And my house is beginning to look seriously good (can’t say the same for my craft room or workshop though).
Today my friends I have a treat for you. The amazing Brittany aka Pretty Handy Girl is here to show you how she turns an ugly thrifted pail into a beautiful work of art. Pretty Handy Girl is the name Brittany goes be and I think it must be the understatement of the year because she is pretty all right, but when it comes to being handy her name should be Astonishing Handy Girl.
There isn’t a power tool that has secrets for this lady and she shares all her knowledge so openly and freely on her blog Pretty Handy Girl that it has become a true site for empowering women. Love that.
Anyhow enough of me, lets give the floor to Brittany…..
