(I am still pinching myself)
A few weeks ago I entered about 14 Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Contests and guess what,
Me the unluckiest person around (when it comes to contests.)
I have been drooling over this paint for months. Every time I see a piece of furniture that I love it was painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I knew that it was way out of my price range with Christmas and a few birthdays coming up, so I entered all of the giveaways! I think it was 2:00 in the morning when I finally finished. It was so worth it. I have so many pieces that I want to paint.
What a great way to start out the new year!
God works in mysterious ways! I am on a craft fast, meaning I will be not be starting any new projects until summer so I can focus on being a better wife, mother, and friend. My creations were taking over the house and my relationships in a bad way. I wasn't doing the things I should be doing, like laundry and dishes. So, until I can become a better house keeper and manage my time better the crafts will have to wait. This was a hard choice for me to make, and caused me some tears. But, I know I won because I am following what he wants me to do instead of doing what I want. The paint will keep and knowing that it is sitting there will just make me work harder to do what needs to be done.
Thank you Lord for all of your blessings and giving me what I need instead of want I want.
Thanks to Rhonda at Restored-Home for holding the contest and picking my name. You can check out her blog here. She has some great pieces of furniture and a lampshade redo that I can't wait to try...
this summer. So Amazing!
