I am also way excited about all my new followers! And not just for the sake of, "OMG, there are actually people out there who want to hear what I have to say and see what I am doing??!?" (though there is definitely some of that) -- but also because I have "met" so many cool and creative and nice people already. I might "only" have 11 followers (which is 10 more than I ever really thought I'd have), but seriously, y'all rule! AND I now have your awesome blogs to peruse, which is like the whipped cream on top of the icing on the cake!
And finally, a brief update -- I'm in the midst of DIY Chalkpaint project #2 and have not had the same problem with slow drying as I had with the table. It occurred to me as project #2 was drying at lightning speed that I usually paint outside during the day, but in my extreme enthusiasm to test my concoction, I was painting at night. No sun + 1000% humidity = slow drying. Duh :) I am anxious to get this project finished and posted, but other things are probably going to keep me busy for the next 3-4 days.
And finally, because this has been such a word-heavy, picture-sparse post, a random photo of the 2 little people who totally rock my world -- meet Sweet Pea and the Little Dude:
No, my kids don't drink Diet Mountain Dew. Not their horse = not their Mountain Dew. Pinky swear!
Since I suddenly feel accountable due to having actual readers, let me go ahead and say I'll probably be absent for a few days, so happy early weekend! Hope it's full of creativity and crafts and thriftiness and whatever else floats your boat!
