Sooooo..  Last summer my mom painted my sister Allison and my room (we share.  We've gotta bunk bed:-D) and we didn't finish painting the furniture... 
"Furniture" being my desk and my bookshelf (hate to say it but Allison HATES reading!!!  I can't believe that girl sometimes....  Therefore the bookshelf is my deal:-D).
Yesterday I unloaded my desk and put EVERYTHING on my bed, then I unloaded my bookshelf.  Most of that ended up on my bed too. 
THEN my mom gave me her old dresser.  So on top of that I cleaned out my dresser and some of that landed on my bed too.  Now my room is a big ol' mess and I can't even SEE my bed:-)  I slept on one of our couches last night....  Okay..  Sorry everyone I rabbit-trailed! 

Yesterday we started getting my dresser and bookshelf ready for painting.  I sanded, filled cracks with some wood filler, waited for wood filler to dry, packed my new dresser, sanded my desk and bookshelf again, then came in a watched "The Lorax."  <That's a cute movie.

This morning I woke up, watched "McClintock!" then went out and "primed" the furniture.  It took SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO long to dry!!!!!!!!  I got one coat of real paint on it....  Get to paint the rest tomorrow:-D 

I am now covered with paint.  In my hair, on my jeans, my arms, fingers, and (I've got NO idea how in the world it got there) on my sock.

I've got a craving for (my favorite) Mint Chocolate Ice-cream.  And Brownies.  Gooey chocolate brownies.  Sorry that was random.  Well...  Actually I'm not sorry...  :D

Do any of you think I should change my background???

I'm sorry if this is an extraordinarly boring post....



  1. This made me smile, Maddie! I like to paint things...but I don't know if I'd have the patience to wait till each thing dried! :D
    I like your background, but if you want to try something new, nothing wrong with that! :)

  2. Hi! I'm sorry it's taken me so long to get back with you on the cover thing.

    The fact is, I'm not really sure how you would figure out whether something was copyrighted or not. A good rule of thumb is that anything published before the 1920s is usually public domain, and anything after that is usually copywrited. I found my pictures by going to pinterest and looking up "girl reading book" haha. :)If you find a picture you really like, I suggest googling it or something to find out whether or not it has a copyright. Hope this helps!

  3. Hey, Maddie! No, it wasn't boring. :) You've got a blog award!! http://storytellerofwestoncounty.blogspot.com/ I think it would be cool to see what new blog design you came up with!! =D
