Projects Started

Well, I intended to get a lot done today. My little one goes to school 1 day a week in the summer so that I can get things done. Today was the day so I was ready to knock some things out since we begin school IN LESS THAN 1 MONTH!!! Boo!
I had some bad luck this weekend. My USB key broke off in my computer. Eeek! (I don't back up...I know. I know...I've learned my lesson.) I am hoping our computer guru guy can fix it...taking it tomorrow. So I head out to school (it's about 12 miles out in the country...feels like 30) only to realize I can't really do anything because everything I need is on that USB.
What is a girl to do when she can't of course! :) I headed to Hobby Lobby to get burlap for my craft that I am 1/2 way through with. What is that you ask. Remember this?

I'm also recovering my chair using this tutorial. (I chair is THAT ugly)

Oh..and guess what I am FINALLY breaking down and ordering tomorrow? Give up...An Erin Condren planner!!!!

  3. I want that apple for my door! LOVE IT!!!

    I've given you The Versatile Blogger award so stop by Lanier's Lions to pick it up! (showing some kindergarten and southern LOVE)


  4. I saw a burlap project on pinterest that I want to try but the burlap makes me nervous! Has it been easy to work with?

  5. Love the apple! Can't wait to see yours! My chair is sooooo ugly too! Love the re-do!

  6. You will love your Erin Condren! I have the monthly planner, which I don't see on their site anymore. I hope they offer it next year, because I prefer just to use the month calendar view! I love how you can personalize the planners though!!
