If at first you don’t succeed……

WHEW! Yesterday was a whirlwind. After we worked at VBS we took the girls over to Dauphin Island to ride the ferry over to Fort Morgan and Gulf Shores. I have been to Dauphin Island many times and have always wanted to see how they accomplish getting so many cars across the bay. It was […]

LOVE THAT LOUIS BLUE

 I almost didn’t get a post up tonight. We are traveling with my husband, who is a part time children’s pastor. He is leading a Vacation Bible School in Mobile, Alabama through the weekend. We arrived late and I realized when I sat down to write that I had left my camera in the car, […]

NEW PROJECTS, A FEW TIPS AND BISCOTTI

I have been a painting fool over the past few days. The Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Class with Stacey lit a fire under me and really helped motivate me to complete basement projects. I am trying so hard not to spend money on new projects until I have made a good dent in what I […]

NOT ALL WAXES ARE CREATED EQUAL& A TRAY TABLE

I FINALLY got down in the basement studio and got to work on some pieces that have been hanging out down there for a long time. I have decided I am not going to go looking for more until I clean out what I already have. I have to admit, some of those things down […]

COTTAGE CABINET

This piece had me dreaming of a cottage beach house or a serene lake house cabin. Can’t you just picture it? This is another chalk paint piece. I used the Country Gray as a base coat and the Louise Blue over it. While I was distressing it, I found out something about this fabulous paint. I […]

CHALK PAINT UPDATE AND A FAVORITE FIND

I heard back from Karen at Chalk Paint USA today. She was SO sweet. She didn’t just email me, she called me twice. She did say that the country gray is very deceiving and the online colors look different than the actual colors. She is sending me a paint chip of all the colors so […]

CHALK PAINT IS HERE

I was so tired last night, I fell asleep before I could blog. I’m on day four of the gym and I am SORE. My body is still trying to work it out. When I finished running yesterday, I headed up to the locker room to use the restroom, came down the steps and all […]
