I have a confession to make.

When it comes to crafty endeavors, I have a lot of luck. I figure out how things are made, figure out how I want to do it, and go to town. I do my research before tackling a project, especially if it's something I've never done before. I take into account tutorials and tips that I've seen others use and everything generally turns out really well.
So when I decided to use chalkboard paint on something, I thought that I'd get finished with the project and everyone could bask in my awesomeness and I'd be super happy. 

But when it was dry and I tried using chalk on the surface, something terrible happened. 
It scraped off!!! 

Amazing Boyfriend thinks that it happened because I didn't prep my surface properly before I painted, and he's probably right. So now the plan is to sand it down and start again. 
I hate failing, especially epically, but on the positive side, I did learn something. And I know what I did wrong so I won't make the same mistake a second time. 

I will finish this project and it will be awesome. 
I promise.

  2. The first pancake is always bad. Either the pan is to hot or to cold or not buttered enough.. it's impossible to account for all the variables. Don't let a bad pancake get you down. It's still just breakfast :-)


You have something nice to say? Write it here!!!
