Is there a skill that you envy in others and so desperately want to try? If you remember my post A lesson in recovery, you might have caught onto one of my fears. There are actually 2 things that scare the crap out of me…sewing and blog design. The funny thing is I’m too cheap and stubborn to pay for either one. So what do I do, PROCRASTINATE, like you wouldn’t believe. I have piles of projects on my list that I just need to jump on and try it.
Thanks to Donna at Funky Junk Interiors she’s having a “one scary thing challenge” that I’ve decided to jump on. I think she says it best by posting
I’m putting it out there. I envy people who can sew. I actually accepted this challenge a few months ago all on my own. I sucked it up and called a friend to help me start on my big scary project. Turns out, it was like a walk down memory lane and I totally am excited about trying a few more things. It helps to have people in blog world (who scare the crap out of me) that are kind enough to share some tips and tutorials along the way such as Ashley, Beth, and Mandy.
Stay tuned, you’ll see my big scary reveal for my first challenge on Sunday! I have to do some research yet on my next “Big scary thing.”
I just wanted to share that Maryann has featured my son’s Big Boy Dresser over at Power of Paint.
Head over and check it out, and gather up some inspiration to paint 🙂
For a complete list of where my projects are featured, see the “Where I’m Featured” tab at the top of my blog!
Whew! I had a crazy week. In an attempt to upgrade my blog and make things pretty- I redirected somewhere and couldn’t even log in to do anything. Lesson learned.
Happy to get back to some regularly scheduled blogging 🙂 Now…so much to catch up on!
This happens every year, we turn the calendar to August and immediate “OMG summer is almost over” panic sets in. My husband is a teacher, while summers tend to be my busiest time of the year at work, so we are constantly pulled at the seams to get some time for a vacation. Then we hit August and the summer to-do list seems like it’s been kicked into high gear to make sure we get everything done. Plus add all the kiddos into the mix and you have one frazzled family calendar. Sound familiar?
I have learned so many great tips, tricks, and amazing ideas from other bloggers, and I think any blogger will testify that our readers are some of the most supportive and wonderful people out there. So I’m announcing a twist on your traditional linky party. Starting August 15th (yes that’s next monday) Fostering a Creative Life will start featuring tips, tricks, ideas, and activites to help make the transition to Back to school a little more fun and little less stressed.
Monday, August 15th I will kick off the week with the Back to School Blog Bash.
This will be a linky party open to EVERYONE to link up their best tips, tricks, ideas, you name it. Anything that will help your family get in the groove for Back to School. I have a few inspirational-bloggers who will features some of their ideas and I have a few slots to fill (if you are interested in a guest post email me firstname.lastname@example.org).
Feeling to exhausted to come up with something fabulous to share- then don’t….but do come and check out all the great ideas to help you get through the final days of summer vacation 🙂
