I'm a tad on the discouraged side. I guess it's 'cause I've generally liked all the projects I've completed thus far. Hey, maybe I've thought to meself "Self, you could have done that better. You should fix this. . . " And then it never gets fixed. But hey, it's not keeping me up at night.
But this weekend is a different story, dude. Craptacular doesn't even begin to cover it. Maybe it's my mood. Maybe I've cleaned up too much barf and diarrhea to make a good, educated decision.
Let's start with wreckage #1, shall we?
Before I show the picture, yes, I am moving backwards in the holiday department. Let me 'splain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up:
I's too cheap to buy these pumpkins at full price. If I'm gonna make somethin, I expect it to be a money saver. Otherwise, why wouldn't I just go buy some awesome decoration already made? So I bought them after the holiday, clearanced.
My stencils failed me, man.
They're a mess, man. Or to quote Danny from Grease: "What a hunk of junk."
So I flipped 'em around and used vinyl.
Now, I like this better, but it sure as heck doesn't call to me.
Disaster/catastrophe # deux:
Do you remember this?
I look at it and I still love it. Thought it was the perfect style for Kenna's room. Had a mirror I took down from this past project:
And I thought, Hey-- free mirror, man.
And I got to work.
Here's the before, with paint still on it's corners:
It's not done. 2 trips to Hob Lob later for flowers (how badly can I estimate stuff? Yeesh) later.
Sometimes I look in on it, and I go: "Oh it's pretty."
And then sometimes, I'm like, "That belongs in someone's gramma's house."
And finally, poopy project numero 3:
Vinyl gone wrong.
It's not that I don't love the messages I chose,
It's the way I couldn't manage to get it straight. That's baaaad.
So yeah, I'm discouraged. But "Never give up! Never surrender!" I know. I know.
