What's that smell?

Sniiiiifffff... Aah. Know what that is? That, my friends, is the smell of creating. OK, it's actually just Rust-oleum glossy white. Nothin's safe from my itchy little hands lately. Sewing, check. Gift making, yep. Upholstery, sure. Spray paint, duh. I'm desperately trying to use and move on out some of the projects I have going on so as not to make my dear, sweet, patient husband move into a hotel. So I had to laugh when the thought of Jeff Foxworthy's redneck routine came into my head recently. Are you a DIY'er? Please take the following self-examination: If you are more likely to have paint under your fingernails than over them, you might be a DIY'er. If you are more dangerous in Home Depot than at the mall, you might be a DIY'er. If you only keep your subscription to the newspaper because it is a constant supply of drop cloths, you might be a DIY'er. If you have a Craigslist/thrift store/yard sale addiction and have no desire to seek 12 step treatment, you might be a DIY'er. If you go to a thrift store, and you don't see tablecloths, clothes, or broken furniture. You see SUPPLIES. You might be a DIY'er. This list is by no means comprehensive, so if you notice any other behaviors that make you suspect you have been labeled a DIY'er... it's ok. Just brush the spray painted hair out of your face. And carry on. :-) Happy Friday! Anne
