I have been thinking about WHY I blog a lot lately. I have decided it’s because there are so few limitations. When I worked as a designer, some of the best ideas never made it outside the design room. They may have been to expensive, too hard to produce, the materials may have been unavailable, or perhaps it just didn’t merchandise very well.
It could also be that the CEO of the company, just plain didn’t like the design.
As Chief Executive Officer, Head Designer, Merchandiser Manager and Chief Production Engineer of this blog, I have the ability to design my blog world as I see it.
A world without any limitations!
Now, you may be thinking, that’s a mighty odd way to do things, but I am having so much fun!
Seriously, this much fun should be illegal!
When a crazy, ridiculous idea comes to me I can run with it. Like when I decided to make this styrofoam mannequin head into a garden planter.
I painted “Betty” with two coats of Magikote Primer, and then spray painted her with Stone Metallic Spray Paint.
My kids said it was a bit creepy.
I giggled and laughed the entire time. Not sure which was creepier, my giggling, or Betty’s ghostly presence in our dining room.
After she was dry, I chopped a hole in the top of her head for a plant, and made a drainage hole in the bottom of her neck. I planted her with a hair-like succulent and added some old jewelry for BLING.
WHO DOESN’T LOVE A LITTLE BLING???
Betty and her buddy “Butch” have been out in the garden all summer long. They keep me giggling regularly.

Aren’t all CEO’s crazy?
