Painting My Nails ~ Not What You Think

Yesterday was another to-do list day.  Our fix-it folks are coming today and there were things to be done before they arrived!  The master bath needed to be painted as a first step to re-doing it.  So, that is how I spent my day...painting the ceiling, the walls, my shirt and my nails!  Yep!  My fingernails are now mauvy with white speckles!  I am such a messy Missy when I get a paintbrush in my hand. 

My fingernails are my one pamper-me thing that I absolutely will not postpone or cancel.  My whole being fills with joy when my hands look nice.  It is the most important appointment on my calendar.  So, you can imagine my panic when I break one or in this case, drip paint on them.  Sigh...whatever am I to do?  Wait a week?  Well, yes, sometimes I must.

Today I will have more painting to do after the fix-it folks finish changing out a ceiling fan, replacing the light fixture in the bath, and hanging a mirror in the same bath.  The touch up will need to be done.  So, I'll just be Mrs. Messy Nails for a few more days.

On a happier note...I get to announce the winner of my first ever Giveaway today!  She is almost as excited as I am and I can't wait till 6:00 pm MST to tell you all who she is!  Now, I am trying to decide when to do my next Giveaway and what it should be.  Another book?  I have one ready.  Or, a "thank you" Giveaway consisting of some goodies I have purchased for just such an occasion!  Hmmmm...what do you think??


  1. Hi Grace! I am a messy painter, too! I think that just means that we are mega-creative, don't you? LOL Listen, don't worry about the Bible Study...just pop over when you can, and if we say something that you want to comment on, we'll be happy to hear from you. No stress, OK? Happy hugs to start your day,

  2. Haha...yes, mega, mega, Snoodles! I feel better already! (giggle)

  3. I'm the same way when I paint. I'd swear half the can ends up on me. :)

  4. It's nice to know I am not alone in my messiness! Hugs, GraceinAZ


Your comments are like hugs that warm my heart!
