First and most important... my sincerest apologies to Tammy and Jo-Anne for not posting a tag and an award. I really do appreciate every time someone gives me an award or tags me. I do try to get to them it just sometimes gets away from me. Especially right now with my giveaway going on I lost track of some of my posts. But fear not I have gone through them and are trying to get back to each of you. So... The tag from Tammy was to tell you six random things about myself which I did yesterday but I wanted to let her know I did read her post and answered it.
Now Jo-Anne has graciously awarded me with this great award...
I am suppose to pick only 5 blogs for this award, but I just can't. I have met so many new friends through my giveaway that I feel everyone deserves it. Please feel free to take this award and use it wisely and may the force be with you. LOL (A little Star Wars in there).
If I have missed anyone else who has given me any awards or tags please speak up or forever hold your peace. I am a scatter brain still, but am slowly trying to get back.
Ok, well,on to Watcha Working on Wednesday. For the first few days of being home I slept and cleaned last week so not much got accomplished. So I will share a few things we got to.
First my hubby built me this stool. I don't know whether to leave it alone or paint and distress it. I haven't decided nor do I know where I want to put it. He built me this before I left. Yes this is exactly what I wanted it to look like. I saw one in a store I loved it so I came up with the measurements and he used the power tools.
Next I have a big supply of slate from my great aunts house and decided I needed to try painting on it. I like it, but again it's missing something. Words, picture, or something above the checkerboard. Again I'm open for suggestions. I started this before I left and just haven't finished it yet. Next I'd like to try a welcome sign on another piece. But that is down the road.
Then on Sunday I decided it was time to paint my front door that faces in the house. So I choose red of course how original huh? LOL. This is the same red I have throughout my house. My camera wouldn't cooperate today and it is really dark, but at this time of day my foyer is really dark. Anyway, you get the picture. I still need to trim around the door a little bit better but I have to have the door open to do it. At this time I don't have a storm door, so all the bugs invite themselves in. I am going to order a door soon. We still need to finish the floor with quarter round too, but like everything I have to wait on hubby and as of this weekend deer season opens, so I'll be waiting a long time. LOL.
Last but not least I have been doing a lot of soul searching both during my trip and after coming home. I am making some tough decisions, both professionally and crafting. As of now it looks as though I will be closing down my website at the end of the year and not wholesaling either. I have so many things I need to do to my home like strip doors, paint, and such and I just don't have the time right now. I have also decided to further my career in more of a leadership role in EMS. I haven't figured out how I will do that yet, but I am looking. I am currently a captain on the department, but would like to move up. So there are many workshops I need to attend and schooling I need to do. Never fear I will still be posting here just maybe not everyday. I could never leave my "friends" or my love of prims. But more on all this later.
Please check out Leslie's blog as there are many wonderful people who participate in Watcha Working on Wednesday and if you don't you should think about it as it is a lot of fun.
