Speed Scrap!

Happy Friday! This evening kicks off a big 4th birthday celebration over at Jessica Sprague's site. We are starting the fun with a speed scrap, starting at 9pm EST.  In case, like me, you have never heard of a speed scrap, here's what our amazing coordinator, Laurie has to say:

What is a speed scrap? The host of the speed scrap will lead you through creating a layout in just one hour. You will receive one set of instructions every 15 minutes. After you receive the last instruction, you will have one hour to finish and upload your layout to the Speed Challenge Gallery for that particular challenge. If you complete the challenge in the given time period, our Creative Team Member host will send you a download link to a special little freebie created just for you.

Please click here and come join us this evening!

Earlier this week, I splurged and bought my very first quart of Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint in "Old White".

I have been obsessively reading about this fabulous paint for the past few months in blogland and think I'm ready to try my hand at upcycling some great Goodwill finds this weekend! Hopefully I'll have some great "after" photos for you next week...for now, here are the "befores":

I just want to give this great 70's (??) piece a BIG kiss! I love it so!

Just $9.99 at GW this week!

Wish I could strip the top and refinish the wood; however, after sanding a bit last night, it appears that the top has a veneer of some sort (like formica or something?). Oh well!

This chair is hard to see, but at $4.99 it was tough to pass up as a "practice piece"!

Have wonderful weekend!
