Even I'm surprised at the difference.

What do you get when you buy eight of these beauties at the
thrift store for $20 (I love Ridgecrest thrift stores),
plus some really cute upholstery fabric from JoAnn's?
Yep, that's right: The cutest kitchen chairs on the planet.

I didn't expect that they would turn out this cute but I
am seriously crushing on them. They are comfortable to boot.
Before and After

Here they are. My lovelies lined up at the counter waiting each day for
someone to sit down and enjoy breakfast in style and comfort.
And, I used up more of that overwhelming craft stash.
That's two points for me. Yeah me!

Okay, so...

After a lot of thought (ie: procrastination) I decided to deal with the craft stuff. I ended up throwing some stuff away, giving away some, and keeping some (less than half thank you very much). It made organzing my sewing room a little easier and neater and well, just made my life a lot less full of burdens. Also, my resolve to not buy new craft stuff until I use up, get rid of, or give away what I already have is still holding. Yeah!

So I am moving on in a little bit lighter, freer, and happier way.

Who says people can't change?
