It is time to get back to normal posting. I just have to vent sometimes, but don't we all.
All right I had last weekend off so I decided it was time to clean my garage and basement a bit. There was a method behind my madness because I wanted to park in my garage when the frosty cold weather hits. I admit I had so many projects going on in my garage I had them everywhere. Then Steve would come over and unload things from the back of his truck so he could haul something else. Of course we then have bikes, a grill, and left over wood, and all of my storage tubs. My garage is the only storage I have in my duplex. So I took the time to go through tubs and weed out what I won't decorate with anymore and started a pile. Then I found things I had been looking for and couldn't find like my rusty bells, sponge brushes, and unfinished projects. So I decided on Saturday that I was going to finish some of these projects. On Saturday Steve took my son to go for a haircut, go cart riding, miniature golfing, to the truck stop to watch semis come in and out, and then finally to his apartment to spend the night. I didn't see either one until Sunday morning. In other words I got a lot done lol.
So on to my projects...
I finished my snowman because I found my rusty bells.
Next I found a set of paper mache boxes that I bought for $1.00 and painted those up and then found another 2 wood ones and painted those up to. I can't remember how much I paid for those, but I think $1.00 or less.
Then I ad Steve cut some wood for my backer for my "quilt" project. Remeber these were those preprinted pillow sham covers. It came out fuzzy, but you get the picture. lol
Then I bought these boards already painted red and black for a $1.00 a piece and finally decided what I wanted to do with them. The writing is not this bright as it shows in the picture. I have no idea where I will put them, but I enjoyed painting them.
Other than that I straightened up my "craft area" aka basement and organized a lot. I found some project redos that might keep me busy for awhile. Some I forgot that I had them, others I didn't know where they were. Oh and another project I am working on is my son's Native American project for school. Steve made the coolest canoe for him out of scrap wood I'll have to snap a picture and show you later. Anyway, stay tuned because who knows what I'll be doing today project wise other than clean my bathrooms yuck!!!!
