Note: This is a retroactive post that I cobbled together in December of 2011 so I could make this page full of monthly recaps for the entire year (our first in our new house!). Yup, I’m just a bit type A. So here’s what we tackled throughout the month of May – high school yearbook style.
Most Improved: Organizing The Insanely Cluttered “Playroom” (more like “disaster area”).
Biggest Procrastinator: Painting The Dining Room (after living with swatches for five months)
Most Repetitive: Mounting Prints On Canvases (Not Once But Twice)
Most Outdoorsy: Sketched Up An Outdoor “Floor Plan” (not to scale though – oops – the house is way too big & our almost-acre lot is too small)
Most Domestic (Runner Up): Making A Festive Table Runner With Clara’s Weekly Fabrics
Miss Congeniality: Clara’s Photo Project (which we opted to continue on a monthly basis with a few tweaks)
Most Artistic: Painting Some Geometric Prism-ish Art (with a few test pots of paint and a clearance canvas)
Most Shy: Installing A Privacy Fence For The Freshly Finished Patio
Most Likely To Result In Goldfish Crackers Everywhere: Making A Pull Swing Piñata For Clara’s First Birthday Party
Most Shrinkage: Slipcovering Our Craigslist Dining Chairs (thanks to some lucky washing)
Biggest Party Girl: Throwing A Big Ol’ House Party For Clara’s First Birthday
Most Sentimental: Making A Video Of Clara’s First Year
Most Glamorous: Updating You Guys On Our Cloth Diapering Adventures
Most Type-A: Our Admittedly Insane Whole-House To-Do List
Best Feeling Ever: Completing The Cobblestone Patio That We Laid Ourselves (woot!)
Most Unexpected: Becoming Possessed And Sewing A Birthday Quilt For The Bean
Most Calculating: Digging Out And Laying The Foundation For Our New Patio
Most Annoying: Fixing A Pesky Broken Light
Most Sinister: Doing Some Pretty Involved (And Unexpected) Patio Demo (just look at that ominous blue glove)
Most Detail Oriented (Slash Neurotic): Painting Our Add-On Bed Finials To Match Our “Ikea White” Bed
Best Break Up: Completely Breaking The Patio Budget (& doing our best to embrace the imperfection of it all)
