3rd attempt!

Yes, I pulled out my stencils again and decided to give it another try. I'm going to stencil the inside of my bedroom closet.
So I found after alot of attempts to get out my leveler and paint the first stencil. Wait for that first section to dry then move on and you wont have to wait for the others to just continue to move around the first dried section...

See how you can move on because your tap does not need to tape on the stencil design but the more I painted the worse it looked??
can you see how some of the paint is darker than the other? I am blaming it on the paint. I think it is a fluke because I love sherwin william paint but this paint is out of the same quart that I used to paint my closet and it was so hard to try to blend. I don't think they blended the colors well? and yes I also stirred it when I got home but the spread of it was awful.

I just didn't like it so I'm putting my stencils away and I'm just going to cover it up!
In the meantime....
I found an amazing blog with great inspiration:
I have yet to see a gallery wall like this.

What about this room? How simple and sweet!

OMG, love this! I am so done with trying to make my stencils work. I think I should just try striped walls....well I will start with my door first :)

Place the tape on....straight....that was ANOTHER challenge.
Make sure the tape is pressed on really good otherwise the paint will bleed under the tape.

Not bad for a nice crisp line right? but I couldn't imagine doing this along an entire wall! You have to really love to paint because I couldn't even finish the door....

This is all I got done! and yes i was done, I cleaned up and I'm leaving my closet door just like this for now.
Oh well...not everything is a job well done for me. My attention span is very small so I'm always jumping from one project to another.

Get a Hobby!

Hobbies help you improve your mental health and well being because  you're engaging the creative network in your brain, you are challenging you mind and keeping it sharp. Its also a stress reduction. When you concentrate on your hobby it is clearing your mind of other distractions. It makes you happy! It makes you interesting! If you are married its important to have other things, separate things that make you happy.  Don't rely on your spouse to make you happy. You both need to find happiness in the things that you enjoy and since happiness is contagious it will rub off on your spouse. You also need to give your spouse space so they can enjoy things they love to do, its important to keep your identity in a marriage! You can still "find yourself" while being married. (I've been married over 20 years) You don't need to rely on people to make you happy! People will let you down, they have there own obligations they have to tend to so if you a

Your First Sewing Machine!

2020 has been a great year for sewing machine sales! Joanne's can't seem to keep them in stock. People making masks as well as others picking up new hobbies due to quarantine and with Christmas around the corner this might even be on your list! So are you looking to buy a sewing machine? If you are in the market for a new Sewing machine you might be a bit perplexed with all the different features. In fact sewing machines range from $100 up to..well there are some in the $12,000 range! So I'm going to keep it simple and share 3 key features to look for in your sewing machine investment. 1. Needle up/down feature : This means when you are sewing a project and you stop you can indicate that you want the needle down into the project so your fabric stays in place when you need to pivot or make adjustments to the fabric. 2. Automatic needle threader : this saves time (and frustration) by threading the needle for you. 3. Needle position right to left: This allows you to stitch
