What I'm Working On...

Recently, I started a new job. It's fantastic and I love it. But it's been quite a transition for me. It can be very exhausting... Mentally and physically. 

So, at the end of my workday, I'm so completely drained that I don't want to do anything except watch a tv show, eat dinner and decompress. 

Because of the amount of stress that I deal with at work... The best part of my day tends to be the funny pictures my friends send me, and my lunch break... Where I eat excessive amounts of sushi, read a book, and dance around at a table with my headphones in. I look crazy ya'll. But it makes me happy... So the looking like a psycho is so worth it. Especially because at the end of my lunch, I'm able to walk back in to work with a smile on my face and talk to the hundredth patient of the day who thinks they have Ebola, because they have a fever. 

So if I haven't already made it obvious enough... I haven't done anything this entire workweek that's productive as far as decorating, and crafting goes. Clearly, that's what weekends are made for. Crafting, reading and planned naps. 

So while I don't have anything finished to share with you guys today... I have many things in the works. Last weekend when I was making those DIY Office Shelves I actually was working on about 5 other projects at the same time. I had a mass spray painting party in the backyard. It was crazy, even my industrial gloves couldn't save me from a mess. I ended up accidentally painting my feet white, my toes gold, and some teal even managed to get on my shins. (Please don't ask me how I managed that... because truly I do not know.) Also... My husbands sandals managed to get painted too, all because I was too lazy to walk upstairs to get my own. Oops. (One of the hazards of being the husband of a very crafty woman.)

But here is a sneak peek of some of the projects I have in the works. 

Mass spray paint party, where everything gets painted... including your feet. 

See the red spots at the top of my feet... Yeah... That's not red. That's just my normal skin color... The rest looks so weird... because my shins are blue, my feet are stark white, and my big toe on my left foot managed to get gold on it. I have no idea... Seriously trying to keep clean during a craft project is a lost cause. 

There was actually more projects laying around being painted too... They just happen to not be in this picture. But I don't want to spoil all of the fun in just one post! I'll be back at the beginning of the week to elaborate on another of the projects I started last weekend. 

P.S. Someone, somewhere... please tell me that I am not the only one who ends up a multi-colored mess at the end of a craft project.
