It’s A Cinch Inspired by Freddie Mercury

It’s A Cinch Inspired by Freddie Mercury

I was in a 5K this past weekend. 

It was miserable. 

It was cold and raining and in the middle of the race there was a very steep hill.  The kind of hill that makes you fall to your knees in agony and cry and feel like your leg ends at your right knee.  I stared at that hill and it stared right back.

I braced myself, gritted my teeth and started up the hill slowly one foot at a time.

As I went on, I got slower and sl……ow…..er

                                                             and s….l….o….w….e….r. 

It seemed like that hill took on the proportions of Mount Everest.

I wanted to give up.

I wanted to cry.

I wanted to turn and run back down the hill.

And then….

                ….We Are the Champions started playing on my IPOD.

And the sun broke through the clouds.

I took it as a sign.

And I dug in my heels and crested that hill with my hands held high as Freddie Mercury screamed out, “We are the champions of the world.”

On that day I owned that hill.

And if Freddie can inspire me to make it to the top of faux Mount Everest without a stretcher, I know he will inspire you to link it up at our “It’s a Cinch” Party.

Today. 

Here.

And we want to see your project in all of its ”cinchy” glory.

Join me and these incredible bloggers:

it all started with paint

Electically vintage

the space between

And here’s the truly Freddie Mercury champion part…..if you link up…..your link is automatically featured on all of our blogs.

Seriously.

That’s right champions….1 link = 5 links.

We are partying like its 1099.

Sometimes I am so lame.

As in L. A. M. E.

And this one took the cake (and the fork and the spoon and maybe a plate or two).

Remember the party we are having at the end of the month where every project is going to be a cinch?  Well, as part of introducing the party, we were supposed to post an “It’s a Cinch” project each week.

On Monday.

I guess this past Monday I was a little too all about myself and where I blog and if I light candles and when I put lipstick on and where I got my kitchen table.

And I forgot.Continue reading
