Day 67 - Garden Polish. Failed!

Day 67 - Garden Polish. Failed!

Day 67 - Well, hello. It's Monday. Who's with me when I say "Mondays are for the birds?" Is it me or does Monday feel daunting & overwhelming? I thought it would only be appropriate to post a nice juicy failed post.

I have always wanted to be a lady who keeps her nails in tip top shape. The cool girl with the cool girl nails. The, well, polished look.

Today, I tried to create "Garden Polish" for the 67th day's post. It was suppose to be a Monet inspired nail design for spring. What came out was more like "Create Blobby." or "Inspire Cataracts." Ug. Let's take a look at this failed attempt at "Garden Polish." First, it starts off promising.

Well, now that I have shown my fail, let's see yours. Today's project is to think about any project you attempted and then failed. Pull out your note book and write down why you think it went south. When creating, it's always good to know why things work and why things don't. For me, this project failed because I didn't take my time.

Write me and tell me about a failed project. I love to hear about big juicy fails. Man alive. Creating is challenging!
