I did it...the Flylady way...

I am exhausted...
but a HAPPY EXHAUSTED!!!
(Note: I am not exhausted because I did it the flylady way--
I am exhausted because I kept pushing me--15 minutes more and then more
and not sleeping great starting my day at 3 AM...!) and then...)
 it's really more the "fleas" that kept getting to me
(the package from Trading Phrases that was damaged---but useable
I paid $ 7 shipping and was missing pieces as the package was wide open..
gotta love UPS NOT!
And then I went to give Bad Cat his medicine...
two trips-did they give me the chewable tuna flavored med they love so much
I have to keep it under lock and key?
Nope. Nada. Zippo.
I am not about to try to pill a cat named BAD CAT
when there is a so much easier alternative-
really-they ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT--so why do I have the old nasty stuff?
Go to do one thing--would see 6 others to do and get sidetracked
(see---that's what happens when you don't do it the Flylady way and
USE THE TIMER!!!),
go to hang something, drop the screw....you know...
Anyway...
Here's the BEFORE FLYLADY...

and here's the AFTER...



a new plant, a new fountain/light...soothing!!!
(that cord will get covered after my next WM trip!)
The little black cat...who tries to eat Christmas trees...
IMMEDIATELY started chomping on my plant!
(I knew that would happen-that's why my fake grass plant went to my office--
and why I took the list of plants that are poisionous to cats
with me to WM--this one wasn't on the list! Geesh.

newly organized shelves and WORD wall art
from Trading Phrases...
they did a great job with my design---shipping---not so good...


this end was crushed...and looked to be retaped...

this end was wide open-and the burnishing tool was missing...
thankfully, the art and instructions were still inside...


crinkled---but I deemed it useable...
my e-mails (although 4ish this afternoon...)
did not receive a response...so not happy!

It was easy to apply...here it is on the wall...


The dandilion puffs are a whole 'nother company
and were AWESOME to work with...
they are removeable and repositionable!!!
And I did a lot of both until I got it where I wanted it!

(those hole/paint touch ups really do not show up that much in real life!
gad-they look awful here tho!)
Yep-that's me on the bike-a CTMH sister is working
to restore the photo for me--that's just a "get an idea" copy
as, unfortunatly, there are spots all over it...particularly the face...


the work table...those cords will be covered---soon as well!
I do want to replace that desk chair

with a papsan chair...!!!
I have two desk chairs in another room should I need them
and I LOVE the comfort of a papasan chair...
when hubby gets home-and I find a good Craig's list deal...

these guys LOVE momma's new space!
They are in here more than I am! Lol!
I am sooo not ready---to go to the crop tomorrow-
will have to set that alarm for 0-dark thirty!
For now...it's time to
Until next time, happy stamping and scrapping!
Blessings,
