May 24, 2014


Here is a pic of what's most recently added/read on my Kobo. I kinda wish some of the images were more clear, but then on the other hand it makes it kind of mysterious to not quite know what everythign is!


Remember how I mentioned that our new mirror took quite a bit of damage? Well I went out and bought paper clay to mend it, then I hand painted it, added salt to it to give it similar texture and then yesterday I spray painted the whole piece. It is finally repaired and can be put on the wall!

I have always wanted to be a little bit of a DIY person and have to say, I am so impressed and happy with myself for not giving up on this item but mending it and bringing it back to life. A few years ago I would never have had the confidence to do it. Amazing how playing with clay and paint has changed my life and perspective.

I gather these are "those" books Shannon?! Well done!

Thank you, I worked so hard on fixing the mirror and now it's up on the wall looking fabulous. Oh we're getting so close!!!
