Way to make me feel like a slacker

I've been working on a super fabulous paper bag/butterfly wreath by MaryJanes and Galoshes for about a week now. It's been all over the internet since Kimba posted it last week on her DIY day recap. Mine is slightly different to the original (mostly because I don't have a scalloped 2.5 inch punch), but will be similar and hopefully just as beautiful. Seriously, it's gorgeous and I keep going back to look at it again and again.
Anyway, like I said, I've been working on it for a while. Oh, sure, I probably could have had it done in a few hours, but, you know I've got to check the blogisphere compulsively to see what other fab projects I can add to my ever growing to do list stuff to do. I worked on it for an hour or so earlier and then had to check the blogisphere decided to take a break for a while. One of the many, many, many blogs I follow is Musings From A French Cottage and I saw that there was a new post up and decided to check it out. It involved grain sacks and stuff. My favorite! She made a table runner and covered her dining room chairs and it looks fabulous. You know, just a little something she whipped up. Oh, and BTW, she's also in the early stages of labor. Labor people! With her 4th child. Are you kidding me? When I was in the early stages of labor the last thing you would have caught me doing is recovering my dining chairs. If you've never been over there, she posts amazing projects. She must be a power house of creativity. No, I've got creativity, what she has and what I lack, is activity. She's a power house of creative activity. She recovered chairs. In labor! I'm such a slacker. Must go finish my wreath off before she pops out a kid, cooks a 5 course meal, recovers her sofa with a homemade slip cover and hand weaves a new rug.

I just got tired reading all that she accomplishes. Your last remark just cracked me up. I am with you. Finishing a wreath is enough. Great post, and gave me a great laugh. Hugs, Marty

I'll have to check out her blog. Hey, who knew you were such a twitter queen?? Seriously how did you get so many followers? I've been at a standstill for like a month. Not that I twitter much but I guess I don't understand it? Kind of funny, I rarely get a message/reply from anyone. Have a fun weekend.
