If you read yesterday's post, you'll know that I haven't exactly kept up with everyone else in blog land. As my preacher grandfather used to say, "The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak."
I want to be just like all of you and make wonderful projects to decorate my home. So, when I saw this at Goodwill, I immediately thought, "
Last week - remember, I'm behind - I opened my January tub so I could decorate. This was on top.
My first step
to make to copy this was to find the right jar. I was happy when I found a jar that already had a black lid. That was one less thing I would need to paint.
I assumed the inside of the jar had been painted white, so I had my paintbrush in hand and the white paint ready. Imagine my surprise when I took off the lid and discovered this:
The previous snowman builder hadn't painted the jar at all but had stuffed it with sparkly material. If you go back and look very closely at the other pictures, you can see that he does have a certain sparkle to him.
Then, reality hit me like a wet snowball.
Next, I had snowman decorations that I didn't plan to use. Why would I make something else?
Common sense prevailed. In keeping with my plans to de-clutter and de-stress, the snowman went to Goodwill and the jar went in the trash.
I think I've jinxed us because the snow missed us this week.
Have you changed your mind about any projects?
