The Early Demise of Five Things Friday

The Five Things Friday meme has proven too much for me. I've tortured all week over potentially interesting things to list.  I can't be tormented by a mere meme.  Too much pressure agh.....

So here is my final weak attempt then we shall speak of Friday no more.

1.   The BeFunky Collage Maker      I have some unknowably keen desire to make collages but haven't found a tool that worked well for me in the past.  Enter the BeFunky Collage Maker which is a dream to use.  I haven't tried all the options yet, but I will!

2.    A new Word Find Compiler that makes your Word Find in interesting shapes!!! Even a TRAIN!  Tragically due to beautiful weather and trying to figure out "five things"  (what an excuse!)  I don't have a Word Find or a Puzzle ready for tomorrow.  Tsk.

3. Here's a really cheapo one:   I weighed the same on my home scale and at the doctor's office this week.  Whoa. Shoes on and everything.

4.   Dept of even more boring things you didn't know about me:  I've been wanting to learn some basic upholstery for quite awhile, but it has always seemed daunting.  I have my mom's old easy chair which really needs a new cover and SPROING the springs are kittywampus.

I've noticed on HGTV that they are upholstering left and right with a Staple gun, but ohhh too scary for me. THEN  I came across this post:

Off to Home Depot I went.   Some days you can't find any help there, but I tracked this puppy down on my own.  I'm ready.

I have to add her blog to the crafty roll yet.  You may notice I've added quite a few decorating and  furniture refinishing type blogs to that roll.   I think it fits in the "beautiful things" category nicely.  Also, crochet and embroidery bloggers are human too and they float right out into the sunshine like I do.  The DIY women take no prisoners or breaks though, so there's a nice stream of creative ideas flowing all year long.

5. It is warm enough to start bringing out my metal shelves and milk cans and making my new shed look all adorable.   Ah, the sunshine.


  1. I love my staple gun! I used it for lots of things. I wonder if it could be a murder weapon. Probably not. I also love points 1 and 2 and intend to use them--thanks!

    1. Mine is a staple gun/nail gun I'm pretty sure. I've seen a nail gun used as a weapon in a movie or tv show recently so yes! You've found another handy murder weapon.

    2. I didn't know they made combos like that. Yes, a nail gun would definitely work. Hmmm...

  2. We're so stoked that you're loving our Collage Maker at! We're making some amazing updates to Collage this week, so stay tuned for even more things to love :)

    1. It is the best I've seen, I'll watch for the updates!
