Not Enough Paint?


Have you ever been in the middle of a diy project and discovered there was not enough paint to finish a job? Well, that's what happened to me recently, or actually I thought that was what happened to me. I wanted to paint a rattan footstool a particular shade of green and since I already had green spray paint at home in a color I REALLY liked, I began the paint job.

Once I had finished all the outside of the footstool, I ran out of paint. (Remember, it was a USED can I already had at home.) What to do?

I was stumped. Sometimes my mind just does that to me. My husband walks over and says, "I know you have another shade of green paint in the tool shed. Why don't you just use that to paint the inside portion of the footstool? No one will see that anyway cause it will be covered up with the cushion." And then he walked away. Simple solution, right? But I doubt I would have figured it out. Yep, sad I know, but true. lol

It was definitely a classic DUH moment for me. So if there comes a time when you think there is not enough paint, maybe you should think again? OR take a better look around the tool shed before you begin painting. :)

ADOPT ME Vest Pattern for Rescue Animals - Another Look!

Six M/Lg and Six Small ADOPT ME vests ready for pick up.

Weighs less than 4 ounces without donation pockets.

Weighs less than 5 ounces with one pocket - less than 6 ounces with two pockets.
Just wanted to show a few more pictures of ADOPT ME vests I've made from my original pattern. More info here. The pattern is $6 on Etsy. If you sew, please consider making some to sell or donate. If sewing isn't your thing, why not purchase the pattern for your local shelter? I'm sure they have sewists who volunteer just as I do for my local animal shelter. Please help a loving animal find its forever home. Mahalo!

ADOPT ME Vest PDF Pattern - Helping Dogs Find Their Forever Homes

I finished a dozen ADOPT ME vests for dogs this morning for donation to the local humane society. This original PDF pattern is my design and it's actually pretty cool. (No really, it is very cool and comfortable for the dogs to wear.)  :) Less than 6 ounces for the large vest with two donation pockets. 


Dog approved and tested in the field. Easy to sew. This is a perfect project for dog advocacy groups. I have set the price in my Etsy shop at $6 ($1 from each pattern sold goes to the Hawaiian Humane Society) in hopes of keeping it affordable to nearly everyone.
Please pass along this information to your friends who sew and especially to any animal shelters. The more vests sewn and sold.....the more dogs finding their forever homes, right? I LOVE rescue dogs! (That's our lovely Lana in the picture under a coconut tree in the backyard.) :)
Thank you for loving these wonderful creatures! Happy Mom's Day on Sunday to all you moms of people babies and fur babies too. :)

Wild Olive Swap Exchange - Look What I Got! :)


I received this sweet embroidery work from a talented lady in Georgia as part of an exchange hosted by Mollie at Wild Olive.  Isn't this lovely? It was such a treat to discover this little bird. :) The green wristlet shown was also included in the envelope. I'm so tickled with the design and quality of work. Thank you!!!
