{working like crazy}


I’m sorry about being a little MIA lately.  I’m here, I’m just BUSY!!!  I have been working on furniture non-stop it seems for the last couple of weeks.  I have gotten a lot done to try and get the garage cleaned out, but then i keep bringing in more…oops :)

See, my garage is looking better…kinda…

Last weekend i painted non stop for 4 days.  Well, i took a break here and there for a coke runs and potty breaks, but other than that i was in my garage for days – at least it seemed that way anyways.

I painted a ton of stuff a creamy white color – love this color, i think its my new favorite – i love colored furniture but i am partial to white :)

I had a sweat shop going on here, furniture all over the driveway, everything getting repaired, sanded and ready for paint.  Usually i just do all my own repairs, but for some reason my husband Santi thinks he is now an employee of {Sweet Pickins} – i guess i will let him do the work, but i aint gonna pay him – I’m sure he wont be an employee for long when he figures that out…. ;)  But he should of worked all that out before he started.  Not my problem.

I even had entertainment when i was painting away – she sounded……..uh……… lovely?!?!?  Good thing she’s cute, maybe not so much in that pic because i would rather paint than give her clothes to wear or do her hair…but she does clean up well :)

Ok, i know that i promised to show pics of my craft room, and i will get to it soon.  I also get lots of emails about my bedroom with the board and batten treatment, i will get that post done soon as well.  I promise.

And i promise no more pics of my garage – just cute furniture.  But this is my life right now :)
