Well, I’m back from Atlanta! For anyone that doesn’t know, I was there for the Haven bloggers conference. To sum things up … it was amazing. Fabulous bunch of women and some spectacular classes.
Don’t worry, I will be posting a summary later on this week.
One thing that you don’t do much at Haven is sleep. I left on Thursday morning. Backing-up a little, Tuesday night I didn’t sleep much (trying to get work finished before I left), and then the night before I left I went to bed at 2:00am and got up at 4:00 to head down to the airport.
Once I was at the conference, we ended up not eating dinner until around midnight, and then my roomie and I stayed up talking late into the night, and then you had to get up very early to make it to breakfast before classes started.
By the time I got home on Sunday, I was so tired I thought I was going to die.
All day Monday, I was in a sleepy fog, so I had the kid drive me around to get some errands done, so I wouldn’t run some poor unsuspecting person off the road.
I had all of these million projects I was going to get caught-up on on Monday … and guess what I accomplished?
A trip to the grocery store.
That was it.
Totally took everything I had in me.
I am writing this on monday night, so hopefully by the time you read this, I have actually slept … and if I’m really feeling ambitious, even take a shower.
Here is a project I didn’t get to share with you before I left.
I found this little cabinet at a yard sale for $3.
The dark wood wasn’t doing anything for me, so I painted it with Plaster Paint in Sweet Cream for the outside, and for the inside a combination of Cottage Blue and Grey Silk.
I distressed the whole piece, and then I coated it in clear wax.
