Houston we have a problem

My husband will be home in about 30 minutes so I am blogging now. That way when he comes home I can give him my complete attention. I do get a little distracted when I come on here you know. I just have a little too much fun.;)  So what is my problem? Well  let me tell ya. I had just finished painting one of my butterflies, but I still hadn't applied the glitter spray. That's when everything went wrong. I never primed my wood before painting over it! Idiot! When I applied the spray all these ugly brown spots started to form. Have a look                                                                    
I tried painting over the spots,but with no success. So instead I added jewels hoping it would distract the eye.
The worse part about this is that I had made this for a friend. I still sent it,but I added a little something else in with the butterfly.  This little girls purse.
So the moral of this story is "Always prime wood that has previously been stained!
Thank you for stopping by. Remember I love my followers!


  1. Still a very cute butterfly!!!

  2. I think it adds depth to the butterfly. I am just like you..priming is skipped and then I curse myself forever after for not doing.

    I think it looks amazing!

  3. Oh no! You're so cute ~ thanks for stopping by my blog ~ I'm a new follower!

  4. The Butterfly looks great. She will love it, but I have to say that little purse is just to die for!!!

  5. I love it when bloggers are honest about their projects. Sometimes we learn more from the mistakes than from the successes.

    I like your writing style. I'm following. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
