Every spring I start to think about what projects I am going to tackle during the summer. The last few years though with life, work, kids, and cash I had several that were started and never finished. That’s right I have become someone who doesn’t finish what she started. Last spring all that changed. My husband knew what I was starting to think, and stopped me cold. He made a new rule NO new projects until the old ones where finished. Ouch! It hurt being called on it, but I knew he was right. So for the past 10 months I have been busy finishing projects. I have yet to finish the one that made him put his foot down. (I am working on acquiring the materials to hopefully get it done soon.) I have even finished projects that in my head I didn’t think I would get back to until the girls where much older. I am amazed at how much calmer my head is now, and I even find the time to sit and enjoy some of the spaces, projects that have been completed.
In order to keep myself from falling this far again. Here is a photo gallery of all the projects that I stopped midway through, that have finally been finished.
Who knows I might start posting the befores too, so that you can help keep me accountable!
