I think this week was a little more random than normal.
Blame it on the sunshine and the Olympics.
Between all the fuss over the Olympic scoring with the ladies ice skating and how relieved I was that Bob Costas had finally recovered from his eye infection…..
….I got a little distracted.
I have made my own napkins forever.
I had to.
I always had a napkin in my mind that would match the table perfectly in the exact color and pattern….but when I tried to find them….I realized that they didn’t exist.
So I made my own.
Except for those corners. They were always lumpy and never matched and the napkins looked like I made them in ten minutes…..which of course…..I did.
I am not an expert on photography.
Not even close.
But I did learn this easy tip to help get your pictures clearer and crisper.
I posted it a while back….but it deserves a repeat.
I saw this idea over on the forum.
My wonderful friend Christel created this project from wood she had at the house.
She stenciled one word from the quote, “To be or not to be” on each side of the block.
Brilliant and easy and almost free.
If you have a fun project you’re working on in your home….you can share it….here.
Last year I was in the contest.
If you missed my brief but super exciting performance….
….here’s the cliff notes.
The first week I started strong and won the week with this project….
I was all about myself and my clock and I floated around on cloud nine all week…..until the next week…..
…..when I crashed and burned with this project.
I thought it was brilliant….but I think only my mother agreed with me…
…..and I came in last place.
And so I gathered my tattered pride and my slipcover and my plate wall and my bicycle clock and went home to drown my sorrows in a glass of sweet tea.
But this year?
This year is a little different. This year I’m on the other side.
I’m going to be helping someone on their contest journey….and I am over-the-moon excited!
Fingers crossed it might be you.
It’s going to be amazing. Martha Stewart is a guest judge and you can win a trip to Punta Cana and there’s so many more exciting details.
So if you like to create and you want to enter a project in the contest….simply click here for all the details.
Happy random Saturday to you.
