Are you all still there??
I've been busy trying to figure out how to add more hours to my day...maybe you have the secret.
Please do share!

Alright, I kid...I haven't been trying to figure anything like that out.
I've been trying to get ORGANIZED.
I'm also discovering I have some sort of homemaking ADD.
Currently, I have two walls test painted on our main floor, one closet half organized, one armoire slightly emptied, a wreath 1/4 finished, and tea stained coffee filters laying around.
It's all part of my Ginormous 2012 Get Organized Plan.
Except maybe the wreath and coffee filters...that was merely a momentary creative escape.
Part of my Plan...and I am hoping to share it all with you soon...is to paint the trim in our house.
This is about the best picture I could find of the goldeny oak trim above the sink in the kitchen.
You can't see it here, but the sill was stained and rough and icky looking...plus it blended right in with the golden cabinets on either side. I know a lot of people love oak, so hopefully you won't be offended by me saying it's just. not. my. thing. And in our house...golden oak is EVERYWHERE. Floors, doors, trim, cabinets...all tied together nicely with a very blah, boring shade of beige wall paint.
The weather has been playing tricks on us in Alberta this winter so....
...all the springy feeling sunshine (I knew it was too good to be true!) simply forced me to whip out my paint brush. I painted....and painted...
...and painted some more....
Finally...a coat of primer and three coats of semi-gloss white later...I had a beautiful, shiny white window.
I'm so in love.
I almost love doing dishes again!
Oh, the refreshing power of white!!!!
Oh...and as for the weather?
It turned cold and snowy right after I finished my little painting project.
Definitely winter again - not spring - so I dashed outside to bring a few sprigs of spruce back in and "winter-ize" the sill. I like it.
Just the look I'm aiming for in the rest of the house.
Hi ho, hi ho....off to organize I go!
What have you been up to after "Christmas" was put away??
