Painting in the Winter sucks!


So I don’t know about anyone else but I am constantly painting in the winter time it seems. I always get the great idea right before Christmas that “hey we’ll make presents for Christmas, they’re cheaper and so much more personal” ya you’d think I’d learn or at least remember last years experience, but no I don’t. So instead I’m bundled to the T, freezing in the garage, painting and waiting forever and ever and ever for stuff to dry. And by golly that Poly stain does not want to dry in the cold, we’ll have to eat dinner on the floor for a week before the chairs I refinished dry. I AM though super excited for the massive mirror I got from D.I. for $6 to be done, and I got another Chair that I’m refinishing,(that I’m trying to do a tutorial on how I do them that I’ll post later).
Anyways Dave Graduated! that I didn’t blog on at all :( I actually forgot my camera so we have no pictures at all :( (It was long and boring anyways.) But a good accomplishment, I’m very proud of him and I love him especially when he brings me home flowers (like these)-he’s such a sweet guy.

Anyways if your curious and since I have no family that reads my blog it seems I am free to tell you what we’re making for Christmas. First I sewed a butt ton of Rice bags (which are very cozy, soft,& pretty, yum!) and than we made some frames that each have the specific amount slots of kids in their families so that they can just switch out the pictures as they’re families grow and change. ya kinda boring but for poories like us it’s gonna have to do. I’ll show you a shot of them when I finally finish them.

Anyways Merry Christmas Everyone–hopefully your preparing for the holiday’s is going a bit smoother than mine.
