You Win Some, You Lose Some

We spent the long weekend playing "house" at my in-laws while they winter in Florida. Living at the shore has its perks, including Michael's craft store.  I started the weekend with big plans for a DIY project (yes, including potatoes):

I did, however, whip up a few new pages that I'll be sharing this week, the first being a gallery of DIY projects.  There's a tab at the top, a photo link to the right (look for the elephant), or you can just click here to check it out.  What did you do this weekend?

    1. Haha, yes, glad to know I've got someone in my corner. I was trying to replicate this amazing wallpaper I had seen, and instead it ended up looking more like a bad, early 90's bathroom sponge paint/stencil project. Maybe one of these days I'll figure out how to do it!
