Whew....

So, I have figured out that this blogging gig takes some time.  Seriously, I DO NOT know how you people with kids do it!  I mean you have to keep up with your own, read all the updates [Lord knows, I do not want to miss an idea or a tip from someone else!] and on top of the list is think of new post!  I have only been at it a little over 7 months, and some of you have been doing it for 3 years or more.  After while when I run out of things to say, one of mine might read....."I made my bed today.  Let me show you how good it looks with all the corners tucked in so nice.  Isn't it pretty?  How about all of you out there.....any suggestions on how to make it better?"  Somebody take away the keyboard then......
On to other important things.  I was at Ikea the other day, yes I admit, I do love that store.  sue me.
I saw this
It is actually a planter with a little metal tray in the bottom [haven't figured out what to do with that yet]
So I sprayed it white and taped it with one inch tape
Then sprayed it black.  This is a picture with one strip of tape torn off.
Are you getting the picture here?  I wanted something to put on my countertop to hold hand towels [cute ones that you don't really use]
You can see after I tore off the tape, I had a little touch up to do but dang....I like it.  This week.....

Pin It!

Love! Don't tell me you also have a thing for dish towels. Me too! I've been on the lookout for some of those bread board/pizza thingies too. Did they come from Scott's?

I know what you mean about blogging I have been doing it about the same time as you, started in January. There is no rythme or reason to blog land. It is is own special little enviroment. Just keep focused on why you started blogging in the first place. Don't lose your focus!!! My post come in spurts so I schedule them ahead of time. The post you are reading today I wrote over a week or more ago.
Love the Ikea box. I am even more in love with your cutting boards. I want them!!! I have a post coming up on Monday about just that Cutting Boards!!! Yours are wonderful, Happy Blogging, Kathysue

Your box is UBER clever! Hahaha...and I know exactly what you mean about the blogging. I am in my last year of pharmacy school AND have a family....and yes, at times I feel like I am losing my mind. :)

Cheers~

too cute, you creative lady.

And I hear ya....I only want to do this because I think it is fun...please keep me honest if I start asking readers what they think the best toilet cleaners are.

I need to go to IKEA--I need some storage, seriously.

So glad I'm not the only one who peels off the tape and then has to do a little repair work!
It looks great on your counter.
