I'm having a blast looking at all the decorations, ornaments, goodies, and such that everyone is concocting for Christmas this year! I'm also enjoying all the crafts I'm learning as well. I just made my own stencil! I'm not really sure if it turned out that good, but with practice, I will get better. I used sheetrock mud on it to make an applique for a plaque I'm working on. I'm curious to see how it turns out. I also painted my shelves with home made "chalk paint" I made using plaster of paris. I got the look I was going for. Now, I'm about to paint the trim in my bathroom that's been waiting for about five years, now. Why have I taken so long? So many other things have captured my attention, but now that beautiful trim is taking it.
I don't understand blogger. I'm following blogs that are not showing up in my reader, and blogs I stopped following are still showing up. Also, I have eleven followers but my blog says I have six. Can someone tell me how to fix this?
Well, guess I better get busy again! Happy reading! Leave a comment if you wish. They make my day!
