I’m drowning over here in my house, y’all. Sure, we’ve gotten tons of rain lately (which is weird), but that’s not what I’m talking about. I am drowning in projects! I’ve talked about it before (remember my DADD post from years ago)…but sadly, nothing has changed.
I won’t even begin to try to name them all. But, I do have 2 beds in my garage that need paint, closets that need to be built and a vintage pachinko machine that needs to be reconditioned.
But really, the biggest, baddest, most looming project that I have is to finish painting my Mary Blair inspired feature wall. I finally finished drawing it out, but this is all the painting I’ve made time to do in the last two weeks.
TWO WEEKS, y’all. I need someone to light a fire under my rear so that I can get this finished, but I don’t have a boss here to make me work. So, I’m going to light my own fire.
Today, I’m announcing a new theme on the blog: Jumpstart June. And I want you to get in on the action, too.
Here’s what we are going to do. I want each of you who are drowning in projects like me to pick at least one thing you want to finish in June. Just one. It can be something huge like redoing a room, or it can be something small like cleaning out a closet. It honestly doesn’t really matter what it is, as long as you pick something. Once you decide, I want you to comment below with the one thing you want to be able to cross off of your to do list by the end of June.
And then, once a week this month, I’m going to check in and show you the progress I’ve made on my project. On each weekly check-in post, I want you to comment and tell me how your progress is going. See? We are going to keep each other accountable. I’m not going to hunt you down or email you if you don’t check in (unless you want me to!), but I think the weekly reminder will help you (and me) keep that goal. I mean, we all try to do those “30 days of push ups” things. This is way easier than that, right?
The project I’m picking to finish for Jumpstart June is my Mary Blair feature wall. What’s yours? I can’t wait to hear!
