Small Announcement! 

Thanks to the unanimous votes of a few of my facebook friends (and yes, I’m counting the “like” button as a thumbs-up vote) I’m going to start a new feature here on this ol’ blog!

I think it would be great fun, every once in a while, to see some of the projects that DON’T turn out “better after.” The hilarious flops. We all have a few, right? Projects that start with good intentions and end with tears, lighter fluid or people asking where on earth you found vomit colored paint and what possessed you to USE it?

Are you excited? I am! If you have ever brought about a furniture fiasco, a crafting catastrophe, or any sort of spectacular design disaster, send your pics and your story my way!, subject line:

    This will be good – – but so frustrating to the ones who spent the time and money doing a ‘re-do’. Looking forward to it.

    I am so excited. This will bring tiny bit of validity to the projects that just didn’t come to full fruition. Did I mention I’m EXCITED!!!!

  10. April 9, 2011 / 8:04 PM

    LOL I love it. (Sadly, some of the ones we’ve seen on here already qualify…but I didn’t say so)

    Lol! Only you would think of something as clever as this! Too funny! I guess I need to start taking pics of the good, the bad, and the ugly 🙂

  13. April 9, 2011 / 9:36 PM

    Genius! Very excited to see these!

  14. April 9, 2011 / 10:05 PM

    this will be a great idea!

  15. April 9, 2011 / 11:43 PM

    Love it! I’m sure I’ll be sending one shortly!

  16. April 10, 2011 / 1:04 AM

    I can’t wait! Well, unless you have been lurking at my house and post my flops without my knowledge….LOL!

  17. April 10, 2011 / 1:11 AM

    Oh my gosh I hope I don’t bombard you!! I can’t wait. This should be so interesting!

  18. April 10, 2011 / 1:18 AM

    Love it!! Cant wait to see what comes your way!!

  19. April 10, 2011 / 1:57 AM

    Oh my word. I could supply a whole slew of items for this new section!

  20. April 10, 2011 / 4:21 AM

    Terrific idea! Apart from having a good chuckle, readers might be able to offer suggestions on how to rectify the disaster! Good one 🙂

  21. April 10, 2011 / 2:21 PM

    I think that sounds like so much fun. I can’t wait!

  22. April 10, 2011 / 3:00 PM

    NOW you tell me. I could have provided photos for an entire year. The latest: modge podge foil to look like mercury, or aluminum…it looked like foil with globs of paint and glue.

    This should be fun, you are awesome!

  23. April 10, 2011 / 3:06 PM

    I love that idea. First, it makes me feel like less of a failure when my projects don’t turn out. hehe. Second, I like to know what doesn’t work so I don’t waste time and money on a project that will undoubtedly flop.

  24. April 10, 2011 / 11:12 PM

    Thats funny I have to admit that I thought sometimes you did that already…the afters can be very interesting…to me anyway..sounds like it would be fun. FRances

  25. April 11, 2011 / 4:45 PM

    Sounds fantastic!! Can’t WATI!!

  26. April 11, 2011 / 6:51 PM

    This is more my style… I can’t wait to see what people put in…then I won’t feel alone. lol

  27. April 15, 2011 / 1:34 PM

    SO glad you counted the fb ‘likes’ as votes. I didn’t think to comment….

  28. April 17, 2011 / 12:31 AM

    okay, I’m sure i’ll have a few to contribute here! There is always a couple of ” I give! Take it aways’s!” each year 🙂
