Blogger Do-Over

Sometimes, we just need a do-over!
So.... I have a confession to make: I mess things up ... a lot.  I sometimes feel like when I share DIY posts and projects, you all don't see all the "whoops" moments that I have when I'm working.  But they do happen!

The good news is that it's totally okay to make mistakes and to re-do projects.  If you mess up any DIY, just fiddle with it until it works!  Or, completely scrap it and start fresh.  No big deal.

Here's a few of my recent do-overs:
This was the tassel necklace when I first made it... about 6 inches shorter than I planned!
So, I just snipped the string of beads off, and started over!
Remember when I painted my craft stool?  Well, I hated the color!  So, I bought a new sample sized color and did it all over again :)
This one's an oldie... but it took me literally a year and a half to get around to painting this brush holder!
I'm still not sure I like it... but I can always change it again!

Hopefully I'm not the only one to mess things up :)

  1. Yep, crazy how much you can keep out of the "public eye" with editing, do-overs, etc. Magic of photography is very helpful for me! By the way, I saw the post of your donuts and quickly scrolled away to this post, you evil temptress!!
