Sucked right in . . .

I hopped on the computer to look up a card idea for primary for father's day this Sunday. I scrolled down to find more info. I clicked on a link. I clicked on another. And another. And another.
This is what I ended up with:

*I've been wanting a creative way to put up our house number....this might be it.

*I've also been wanting to make a topiary or two for my home.

I haven't yet, cause I want a good sized one and styrofoam balls are unnecessarily expensive.
This tutorial shows how to make one by making the ball out of crinkled up newspaper! Yes, I did just go and get today's ads from the trash. I think I'll use a stick for the post and maybe add flowers too.

*I'd love to do this (or have nate help me do this) to our bathroom mirror one day.


*I like this idea, maybe I'll use a version of it in my bedroom.

Okay, so maybe I've become a project junkie.

Lori, it's those projects that are your hobby and keep life interesting. Gotta have 'em!

Mark and I are going to do that to a couple of our bathroom mirrors. Maybe he would help you out sometime.

Thanks for the great ideas! Now all I need is for you to come over and do it for me, you are the project junkie after all and very talented I might add. Nice bedroom!

I got on Jeff's email to fill out the program for Damon's baptism and instead I clicked on your blog link and have been reading. I'm so glad I found it! You do some amazing stuff. And I love your photography. Really cool. I'm adding you to my Google Reader so I can stalk you some more.

Oh, and I will fill out the program for Damon's baptism, too...

Projects are my gateway drug.
