Remember Me???

How could I forget?
I've been trying to get up the courage to hang this baby up
and I finally did it.
It wasn't the task in itself that scared me....
it was the weight,
the crashing images that raced through my head and having to undo all the computer cords and figure out how to put them all back together as I rearranged my little office space.
I went and bought all the little hooks, super wire, and screws that would be the perfect recipe for success.
I marked some marks, found the studs and used my beloved level to get it straight.

I ended up using a 2 x 4 I trimmed down to fit in the back to hang it on which I screwed into the studs and also add more stability as I screwed in from both sides.

I predrilled the holes and still ended up with these.....nothing a little spackel can't handle!

I put a few things on it to display until I figure out what I want on there.
But for now.....it's perfect and I'm feeling a little proud.....
And yes....my Big Stud helped me!

If you've been wondering why we Crafty Sisters have been MIA this week....
read the funny bit about Candace's carpet cleaning experience.
Even funnier is how scared she was to deal with the carpet man coming back so her hubby recommended she call her tough big sister to deal with him.  Is that a compliment?  I'm still laughing about it.:)
One of her kids officially broke her first window.....
I got my Easter Letters all done that I'm teaching a class on for next month.  Phewww.
So this week get ready for Candace's big reveal, some more fun Easter Decor and who knows what else we'll get an itch to do!
Happy Sunday!

This is such a clever project and I really like how it turned out. I'm glad you were able to get it hung so you can use it! I understand the crashing fear though :-) Thank you for your nice comment today.

This turned out wonderful. You did a great job.

OH no! My biggest fear is having a window broken! (and I heard about that awful carpet cleaner. Shame on him! And yay for you- coming to the rescue! haha)

Glad to see your memo board/organizer up and in action! If my hubby didn't just 'demand' all of my other half finished projects be finished up soon, this one might be half done already! lol

Check out my Mercury-ish Glass giveaway!

THanks for entering (twice!) ;)

BTW, you should re-add the button... Sorry, I was bessing around trying to add a new one, and I dind't mean to make it so HUGE!!! (haha,I don't have that big of an ego to take up half of your side bar!) Really, the new one is exactly the same... just smaller. Sorry for the trouble!

Ugh. I need to just shut off the computer. that was *messing*.

Looks fantastic hanging up and all decorated. Looks like it's definitely going to come in handy. I've been a little MIA too so now I'm off to catch up on your posts that I missed. I must have missed the one about the carpet. Off I go.
