Amaze Me Monday #42

Hey everyone!

I hope you all had a great weekend.  

I had an itch.  An itch to paint something…. anything after receiving an email from Sherwin Williams announcing one of their fabulous sales on paint and stain!  With a crazy look in my eye, I glanced over to my daughter and asked her to help me clean out the dining room so I could painted it.  She kindly reminded me that I already had to many unfinished projects in the work to start in on the dining room.  Unfortunately, she’s right and this is the whole reason why I started this blog. …. To stay focus and to finish my projects.  But the sneaky side of me found a couple places in the home to paint on Saturday morning.   I hope to have it ready to show you this week.

I going to keep this short because I have been working all day and all I’m ready to do is rest my feet and enjoy all your fabulous projects!  Thank you for linking up to the party Open-mouthed smile

  18. OMG! Too funny. At least your daughter can help keep you grounded and motivate you to get a few unfinished projects completed! I was a painting fool this weekend... link up my mod podge flats & a giveaway.

    Thanks for hosting!

  19. Thanks for featuring my Root Beer Float Fudge this week! And for hosting such a great link party - so many great ideas!!

  20. First time to your blog --- which is awesome I must say! :) Thanks for hosting this event!

    I literally laughed out loud when I read your reaction to the paint sale! In our current house, the ceilings are high, so it is too much trouble to do a lot of painting around here, but in our first house, I painted a.l.o.t!!! My husband didn't know what color the walls or furniture would be when he came home from work. He used to joke, that if our toddler girl, (at the time), stayed still long, I'd paint her too! LOL! I refrain myself now, to little projects! :)

  21. I get "spring fever" in the fall, Carrie! I've already started preparing things to paint and spruce up for the holidays.

    Thanks for hosting. I would love to have you link your projects to my party - Time Travel Thursday - when you're ready to show them off. ;)
