When I go to a sale, and I'm tempted to pick up another fixer-upper, I try to remember that I already have more "projects" than I have time.
For example, I still need to spray-paint that Christmas tree stand that I found by the side of the road in late December. It's in the garage, next to the closet organizer that I want to re-cover, which is by that big piece of chalkboard that I picked up to finish yet another project. You get the picture, don't you?
And here's another little thing I want to do. It's part of a transfer for what is the world's cutest clothespin apron. Now I have to find some transfer paper (or is it tracing paper?) and the time to embroider it. And then I remember I don't ever hang clothes out on the line.
Maybe I should start with something much, much smaller? In the hopes that it may be more do-able?
How about this? I found it in a box of ornaments, and because it doesn't look like much, it was free. Do you know what it is? I did, because I have something similar and because I saw the same thing on Magpie Ethel's blog.
Of course now I have to figure out where to find a tiny paper mache head. And that's another project, isn't it?
