Excitement Is Abound

100 gold stars to anyone who can tell me what song I borrowed my title from!  But seriously, I am just so darned DIY Chalkpaint Table is being featured on Roadkill Rescue today!  I lurked on Beckie's wonderful blog Infarrantly Creative for months, soaking up her fabulous inspiration, so I am definitely feeling humbled and grateful and honored all at the same time.

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!


  1. Hi Kristy, Congrats on being featured! I am so excited that the DIY chalk paint worked for you and I'll be looking for your feature.

  2. I love your enthusiasm! Your blog is a great read. Darn cute kids even if you do feed them pure sugar. Ha ha
