Busy Year Part 4

Thank you so much for your support for my daughters experience with mean/nice girls. I shared that experience in yesterdays wrap up post.

She has read every single comment. She now also knows that she is not experiencing this because she is a “weak” person or easily intimidated but because the “weak/mean” girl is insecure and targeting her.

More importantly, that she is not alone.

My heart goes out to you all that have experienced the mean/nice girl comments or have had to watch your children be bullied by them.

Once again you have reminded me why I blog….

Thank you for making this years wrap up so much more special than just talking about the “petty” projects but sharing our hearts!

Feel free to share more stories or comments on that post and I believe it has inspired me to talk about it in depth later in the future. More kids, teenagers, AND women need not only to heal from these mean/nice girls but learn how to handle them. I’m on a mission!

You know me……I can’t help it. It’s got to stop and what if our voices made a change? Hmmmmm……it has my wheels turning…..we shall see.

Oh yeah……and I can’t ignore the fact that yesterday’s post had some weirdo porn yuck embedded into a link that I provided for one of my past projects! I got home around 4pm and saw a few messages on my FB that said….”You might want to check your Will Moses link, it took me to some weird place”.

OH MY GOSH PEOPLE! It was there all stinking day!!!! I started screaming in my living room, my husband and daughter were there and freaking out, scared to death at what was going on. I couldn’t even speak as I was rapidly trying to delete the link and make sure no other link was attached to some weirdo sites.

I was so humiliated that my first thought was that I was going to have to quit blogging, pack up my children and spouse, sell our house and move out of the country.

But I have decided to stay and I am so sorry if you had to view any of that crap. I don’t even know regretfully, how to protect myself from it happening again. If you do, please let me know. If it EVER happens again, just please comment if it does, thank you FB friends for letting me know.

Ugh….I can’t even talk about it again or I get sick to my stomach.

I felt like I was getting “punished” for talking about the mean girls……one FB friend sweetly told me to NOT believe that was Karma.

Ugh….I hate I even had to bring it back up. Ugh, ugh, ugh……..if you saw it. I’m so sorry.
Ugh. Can you imagine if it was karma and when I talk in depth about mean/nice girls what could happen? Ewwwwww………someone get my lucky-rabbits-foot-Bible-book-mark! (I’m teasing…I don’t have one, need one or believe in one…..prayer has same power for me ; ) …I just know you like the sarcasm)


I am going to share some other wrap ups and as soon as I post, I will hurry up and check the links and pray that nothing gross gets spammed in there. For those of you that don’t want the wrap ups, I hope you enjoy the chit chat. It feels good to be just talking again!


Another one of my most popular posts. Taking a yard sale mirror and making it into a chalkboard.

You all liked the transformation of a “traditional” to “today” lamp.

A fun stool/ottoman makeover with a fuzzy blanket.


Freebird moved into her first apartment. I title it, “She Flew” and it became the most read and shared post for quite a while. I shared the transformation and my heart regarding…..so many of you had been there and shared yours as well.

My first chalk paint project. You and the rest of the blog world….liked it! YIPEE!

I am trying to only pick the most clicked on links because this was a really fun and productive summer. I am finding I like painting in the summer. I’m not enjoying winter paint projects. This sofa made it’s way everywhere and was my most featured project. So much fun! You will NOT believe the before.

This mission style bench was transformed……


And I’m not even going to show you the after….you have to click on it.…..it is where you guys started grasping how BU-GLY can be made beautiful.


This old church pew was transformed and I was able to make a huge announcement with this post…….

Had fun with a cute little $2.00 yard sale table.

And I will stop there!

I am trying to wrap up in time to have our next “Meet Me Monday” party! I want to see what you all have been blogging about. It does not have to be DIY related!

I thank you again for your mean/nice girl advice…..sharing your hearts….and just being there.

I hope you are enjoying this years wrap up!

You can still comment on the mean/nice girl post here! Share it with anyone that you think needs it. Let them know they are not alone.

I will talk to you tomorrow!

    Yours is the first blog I ever had the pleasure of reading, and I love the chit-chat side, the projects are a sweet added bonus. Don’t sweat the small stuff like the unintended nasty link, no biggie. I have laughed until I cried and then probably just cried at some of your posts and you have inspired me on some projects of my own! Thanks for sharing it all, cant wait to see what the new year brings!
