Where the heck did April go!

It’s just crazy how fast the months fly by!  Way too fast and the older we get the faster they fly!

I planted my flowers in the garden on the weekend along with my tipsy pots.  I hope it stays warm enough for the flowers now and I do enjoy the tipsy pots.  I was hoping to get a picture of them today but it’s raining out.

This weekend I cut and painted “SUMMER” letters for my backyard.  My plan was to have them sit on my table but the wind will keep blowing them over so I decided to put stakes in the bottom of them so I can stick them in the garden too. I drilled a hole in the bottom of each letter for 1/4″ doweling.  I won’t glue the dowels, that way if I decide I’d rather they sit on a table, I’ll have that option.  The dowel will be enough to hold them in the garden.   My best buddy who does not like clutter is starting to shake his head.  I think that means enough.  He worries that I may overdue it.  I won’t 😉  I’ll add a picture of the letters and my tipsy pots in my next post.

Transforming a plain piece of wood with a little bit of paint always amazes me and the possibilities are endless.

I used DecoArt Patio Paint so they will be fine outside all summer.  Check out their website.

There’s a lot of fun project ideas and how-to idea videos.

I enjoyed painting my Margaritaville sign so I decided to paint a few more.  Who doesn’t love a little Happy Hour?!  I’ve started a Pool sign and I’ll probably do a Hot Tub sign and then i”ll add them to my Etsy shop.

On to May…

We have a new baby due in the family this week. May 4th is his expected arrival date.  He is my first May project priority.  I’m excited to start making him something.

Anyway 😉
