They Can’t All Be Winners..

November 5, 2012 - Author: Amy

Yesterday, while my main man was working outdoors, and my little man was napping, I got bit by the crafty bug.

Dun, dun, DUNNNNNNN!!!

I remembered that we have a perfectly good pallet leaning against the trailer we still have on our property full of leftover building material.. So I ran out and asked D if we needed it for any particular reason.

D: ~suspicious face~  No.  Why?

Me: Cause I’m feeling CRAF-TAY!  ~runs away cackling~

I grabbed my trusty hammer and was ready to smash that sucker to smithereens,

When a broken piece of slate caught my eye.

Me: Do you need this??


Me: ~runs away cackling~

I abandoned the pallet wood and took my slate in instead.  I laid it out and penciled on a favorite lyric of mine. 

“Take the time to take my breath”

10 cool points to anyone that can name that song!  (Hint: It’s this one)

I used the same paint I’m using on the dining room chairs and when I was finished, I felt very “meh” about it.

And half hid it behind some more preferable decor.

I think I might scrap it and go back to the pallet idea. 

What do you think?  Have you finished any “meh” projects lately?
