Just call me Martha

OK, so Martha Stewart I may never be, but you can allow a gal to be delusional for a bit right? Thank you.

I have been bitten by the craft bug else would you explain my sudden compulsion to want to buy a sewing machine and learn how to knit?!?! Or my recent desire to put a piece of antique furniture in my driveway and paint it?!?! I suppose I have Edie and Melissa to thank for this newly acquired "bug"....they just make it look so fun! And so darn easy!

I found this at Kohl's on sale Sunday. See, before being bitten by the bug, I would have walked right on past this little gem...the whole time listening to that neurotic little voice in my head that says "You can't possibly do that! You will make a big ole mess and it will look disastrous and there you will be...stuck with it!" Yep, that's what I do every time I enter Michael's or Hobby Lobby...I load up my cart...and by the time I am done walking through the store, I have given way to the perfectionist within and decide to abandon the cart...yeah, I know...the employees that have to restock that stuff loathe me!

But this time...I told the small annoying voice to go find some pictures to straighten somewhere and leave me alone!!! I bought it! And I didn't even let it sit somewhere for 2 years before attempting...not that I would ever do such a thing.

I had the courage....I had the plastic applicator...and I had the perfect wall! It really was simple...I can say that because my husband did all of the measuring and Math for me to get it centered...but really, it was easy. Just a little patience...and Voila! The perfect compliment to my Give Thanks Banner dontcha think?

"And whatever I do, may it always bring glory to you"
