Better Late Than Never?

Yes, yes, I know, I have once again dropped the ball and let too much time pass before an update.  And this little post will attest to it, since I've been wanting to share the wonderful present my oldest sister made me for my birthday....last October.  Can you say procrastinator?
It's wonderful to have crafty sisters who understand the need to be creative and who give the MOST AWESOME handmade gifts.
This is just one example:
I love this for a ton of reasons, but mostly because my sister cared enough to make it for me.  It was one of the best birthday gifts I've ever received!  Now I just have to clean up my studio and get back to my crafty ways!

The weather is supposed to be in the high 60's tomorrow and I'm hoping to get some quality painting time in.  There is a small bookcase in my hallway that is just begging to be painted and distressed.  I wish I could share a pic with you now, but, honestly, I didn't realize just how dusty the darn thing was in the picture and I'm way too embarrassed to post it.  I'll make sure to take before and afters if I do get to work on it tomorrow though!
