Half finished projects

Summer finally came to the pacific northwest and after setting a new record of 272 days without temperatures hitting over 75 degrees, we finally broke it! Needless to say, with the weather warming up, I have been spending hours upon hours with the kids outside. Because of this, I have many unfinished projects lying around.

I did open my mail today and got a sweet little surprise. Don't you just love those? Katy over at No big Dill offered up some of the seeds from her cosmos. Wasn't that so sweet of her. Thanks Katy!


I have spent the past few days trying to paint this boat, and feel like I am getting no where fast.
I also started using mod podge today on a serving tray that I got at a garage sale. Not sure what I think of it yet, but I just keep mod podging along.
And this pile of linen is an old pillowcase and a pair of women's pants. I'm in the process of making a sweet little dress for my daughter. Here's hoping I get it done before she outgrows it!
I'm a girl that loves the warm weather and sunshine. We don't see enough of it, so I take advantage of it when we do. Unfortunately, that means less posts now, but just think of all the unfinished projects that I will have time to finish come winter! In the meantime, enjoy the sun, I know I am!

Hi, just found you through The Girl Creative! Cute blog, I love your title! I am jealous of all your crafts, even if they are only half done. I am not the crafty one in the family, it skipped a generation. My daughter loves it though! Thanks, I'll come back and check out some more later.

Hi,

I'm a new follower. I really love your crafts. I saw this cute little dress and matching doll. How cute is that? The white dresser is spectacular. I'm with you that when its sunny we should take advantage of it. I find I still blog too much. Thanks for sharing.

New follower through New Friend Fridays. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one with half finished projects! They eventually get finished even if not in the way they originally started out. Have a great weekend.

Better half finished than never started . . . which would be like all of my crafts. LOL!

I'm from the Northwest area too and we were so over-due for some sun! I hear it's supposed to get up to 80 in the Portland area...
