So for the last month or so I have had a nest of baby finches on my front patio.....so I have avoiding bothering them too much...we come in mostly from the garage. But that month was hard on my patio...it was a mess....so finally yesterday the last baby flew the coop and I spent some time out there sprucing things up...a little spray paint....a new happy flag....and now things look much better!!!!
Amazing what you can do with a dollar basket from the thrift store!
I had some fun with a new can of RED spray paint!!!!
I found this Martha Stewart binder system at Staples...I had seen it on another blog and OMG of course I needed it!!!!!
The other obsession that I have now are these smashbooks....
They are really cute and the idea is to save all your day to day "junk" and put it in the book....Lord knows I have junk...lol...movie tickets...all that kind of day to day stuff..
So let see if I can fit another project into my life...lol....
I did manage to get a couple of things finished for the Christmas club...but one of the toppers, the red and yellow one from last post...I did finish it but Im not going to post a pic, and heres why......it has a couple of mistakes...its not perfect....and theres a couple gals out there that only look for perfection.you know...the ones who enlarge the pic and scrutinize, and email back and forth about how poorly it is done....so Im not gonna give them the satisfaction...lol...you wont find any perfection here...just FUN!!!!! If I cant have fun when I sew....or any thing else for that matter....it ceases to interest me....its not a competition...is it?????
I find when I try to compete...or be perfect...it sucks the joy right out of what Im doing....leaves me hollow...do any of you feel that way?
anyways.....we are still on baby watch.....we even went to Disneyland a couple times and rode some rides...that didnt work ...lol...I think Jameson is pretty comfy in there...so hopefully by the next time I blog I will have news:) In the meantime...I shop....lol!!!!
