The 2nd largest project I’ve ever tackled is finished.
And I couldn’t be happier.
As any DIYer knows, the two best days of any huge project are the first day and the last day.
The first day because you’re all starry eyed and full of hope. Like the first day of school when you religiously double underline all your titles in red. With a ruler.
And then the last day is equally great not only because your project is done, but because you made it through this stupid, asshead project without murdering someone with a ruler. Or a tape measure. Or any tool that’s within arm’s reach. Having to deal with a murder charge really messes up with the completion of a project.
The funny thing is, as much as I love my chicken coop (and I do, I really, really do) there are other smaller projects I’ve done that give me just as much happiness. Something doesn’t have to be big and over the top to be great. It just has to make you happy when you look at it or use it.
Like my dishsoap dispensers. I smile (mostly on the inside) every time I use them. And they didn’t take 3 months to make. They took 3 minutes.
So my question to you, this lovely weekend is … what is your most favourite project? Not of mine … of YOURS.
What have you made that you’re most proud of? That makes you smile. On the inside or the outside. Or maybe it was the most difficult! Show me! I’m curious. That’s my nature.
So welcome to … my very first LINK PARTY!! I’m not even sure what the hell that is, but I’ve seen other bloggers use the term successfully. Basically … if you have a website, and you have a link to a DIY project you’re especially happy with … link away. I’ll see it, other people will see it, then we’ll get drunk. I’m assuming anyway. How else would it be a party?
And since I don’t want you to feel left out .. if you don’t have a link, don’t worry! Just leave a comment telling me about your brilliance. I’ll believe you … even without photos. Keep in mind if I find out you’re lieing, I might beat you with a ruler.
Have a good weekend, and happy linking!
