It's Coming...and Other Fun Stuff

I write this post while I am on the phone. I am on hold with the Pinal County Assessor's office. I have 11 calls ahead of me. I thought well, I should do something while I am waiting. So, here I sit. Yesterday, I was outside and noticed something on my tree. The buds are on my tree!! I was so excited. I told my kids to look because this means the leaves are coming soon. YES!! 9 calls ahead of me... Also yesterday I tried to take it easy because I wasn't feeling very well. I was able to get my kitchen clean and then I did some crafts on my table. Here are some pictures of what I did. I had so much fun and it really helped me stop feeling how miserable I felt. Yeah, 7 calls ahead of me...
I saw at the Small House blog that she placed a floating R in one of her jars. I stole her idea and did the same thing. I think it turned out cute.
This next picture, I bought this candle holder at the DI for .50 cents and decided that I didn't want it red anymore. So, I fixed that problem. I also was given the square and the letter D by my sister and painted these also. I loved how it turned out.
Yes, 2 calls ahead of me...
My last picture I show is a board that I found also at the DI and wanted to make it into a chalkboard for thoughts. This is hung by my front door where I will place a little message for everyone to see each day. Our first message of the day is "smile". I painted the edge a navy blue color it looks really nice in person.
Finally, I got through to speak with a person regarding our property in AZ. Thanks for spending time with me on hold. Doing this helped the time go faster.

Everything is turned out so cute! Love the "D" and the other "D" and the other "D". Really liked your chalkboard.

I'm thinking about your sconces. I'll let you know what I come up with. I've got a cute sconce I purchased at Target when we partied there in the fall. I haven't hung it yet. Waiting to figure out what, where and why.
Have a good day.

I agree with with your sister! Looks like you had a lot of fun!
I am not a fan of making the phone calls and you end up on hold. You made great use of your time. When I do that sometimes I forget who I called when they answer! he he
Hugs, Bobbi Jo

I love the letters that you did. A shame that you had to wait so long on the phone that is a sign of the times. What every happened to the good ol fashioned way. Great to see what you have been upto pop by again.

In answer to your question, yes, those are plates and platters over our bed.
