My W.O.W. update....

Ok, so I have to be totally honest with you, this was really a hard one for me. I don't know if I just picked something too hard for the busy week I had (they are all busy though) or if it just stretched my brain to be so creative. Anyway, I got half of my goal done. As I started thinking about what I really wanted to do with the walls and the "art", it took way longer then I had expected. So, the organizing of the crafty closet didn't get done. But, I am so happy with what I finally decided for my walls. I didn't have a lot of extra money to buy pictures and things for the walls so what I did was bought some cork board, fabric and a clock. I covered the cork board with the fabric and hung it on the wall. I also took some buttons and glued them onto thumb tacks. This is how is turned out.




I even got some more books up on the book shelves. I think I have some more somewhere but sort of ran out of time to find them all.
I am super happy with how it all turned out. Thank you Becky for doing this again to keep me motivated. One more thing....did you notice the Starbucks coffee in the picture. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you draw my name Beck!

Ah, I wish everyone could see it in person, because the pictures didn't really do it justice. The color on the walls is a richer brown than it looks there, and the clock looks much cooler in person. You really did a great job on it, Angie!

Good job Angie! Doesn't it feel so good to get something acomplished, even if you didn't finish, one thing can be checked off your list!

I agree with Kimberly since I got to see it in person too. Like you say--they are all busy weeks--even when you are retired. That's what is so great about the WOW. It pushes you into something you really want to do, but don't think you have the time. Then "Presto" you are posting the after pictures before the week is even over. Good job girl! Grandma
