Perhaps you thought you were going to come here and see some before-and-after action, or a giveaway, because it's Friday and I like to do that for you on Fridays, but NOPE! I have failed you!
It's just that I was going to do this neato fabric spray-paint giveaway for you, but so far, it is not going as planned. I had finally found a cool chair to paint, you know, to show you how the stuff works, only to discover that the chair has been heavily peed upon by an animal of some kind, for what I guesstimated to be 10 years or more. No amount of anything can fix that. So that's going to have to wait.
Then, a while back, the super cool girls at Girls With Good Taste held a giveaway, and the grand prize was a fun-filled day of thrifty shopping and lunch, and they invited me along! We coordinated our schedules and planned it for yesterday, and I was SO EXCITED! Then my daughter got really sick and I spent the day cleaning up puke instead. That ranks right up there with the time in fourth grade when I got sick on the day the zoo-mobile came to school.
THEN, I grew a coldsore on my face the size of Texas.
THEN, my husband got robbed at work today.
THEN I read this plea for help for orphans in Pleven, Bulgaria, and my heart just broke. I put my head down on my keyboard and cried and cried. And then I felt very selfish, because all my "problems" seemed pretty darn trivial.
THEN I wrote this bummer of a post, and felt bad about THAT! Sorry to be such a bummer. Things will be back on track next week, I'm sure of it! But thanks for letting me whine a little. I feel better. And my daughter is better. And my husband is fine. And I donated to the orphans. And maybe you could click that link to see if you could help a little bit too.
And now I am leaving you with a funny picture of a goat:
Hi! I'm Lindsey, and this site is inspired by you! This is a showcase of my favorite part of any design project or makeover: The before and afters! It's always better after!
