Wednesday:) What Ya Been Doin’, Miss Toni?

“People who truly live their lives don’t have time to complain or judge others. They’re too busy enjoying life and love and everything in between!” ― Charlotte Eriksson


One thing I’m good at is keeping busy. Even if I don’t accomplish much, I can spin my wheels and look really busy with the best of them.

My dear friend Debbie was kind enough to scour some Hobby Lobby stores in Chicago to find my elusive 4″ frosted ornaments and get them to me last week. This way I could paint ornaments while visiting Mom. I shipped the needed paints, brushes, and glitter Tuesday of last week, along with some heavy sweaters for my chilly visit. I thought for sure I’d get the priority package at least by Saturday, but nooooo. It arrived Monday afternoon.

I spent ten or eleven hours Monday painting and glittering. No rest, no dinner, just working non stop. I had to do some creative thinking and inventing to get the project done at Mom’s.

Working until the wee hours by lamplight, I managed to create, paint and glitter sixteen beautiful ornaments and paint matching boxes.

A big mess was created along with end result. Glitter everywhere!

At home, I use tomatoe cages to hang ornaments between painting or glittering steps, I devised a makeshift hanging system with a suspension curtain rod and some wire hangers. “I am amazing!” That’s my quote. I prompt Mom when she says I’m wonderful, with the initial, “No, I am ???…” and she responds…”Amazing!”

See, I told you so! “I am amazing!” Right? That’s what I’ve been up to.
