Handy Girly Girl

See what THIS PROJECT started? . . .
now I'm on a roll . .

I've tried a lot different things so far in this little life. But I just broke through some new ground and I am super excited about it! I've never ever done anything like this before!

I've painted a bit (I'm too impatient to do it often),
And I've hammered a few nails,
but that is it.

Be on the lookout, because I'm going to reveal my new project in the next week or two. It has to do with:

me in my new fantastic safety glasses


this beast

In fact, I'm convinced that I now need one of these cute little girly tool belts!
And maybe some pink Snap On Tools?? I found this adorable tool belt here on etsy

(don't you just love etsy?!)

The most intriguing thing about trying something brand new is what you learn about yourself.
This project that I'm talking about is something that I thought I would dread and hate...BUT, after trying it, I am loving it! I anticipate waking up each day and doing more! It is addicting.

I have always LABELED myself. For example, "I'm organized but not at all creative". I've said that about myself for years. But now, I'm learning new things.
It is so fascinating to see what happens when we allow ourselves to escape from the box we place ourselves in and cut away our self-imposed boundaries.

-Who are you really?

-How have you labeled yourself?

-Are you who you think you are....or is it possible that there are things you don't yet know about yourself?

-Take a little challenge to go out there and try something that you never envisioned yourself doing...what are the possibilities?

P.S. The reveal is coming soon...

I know this post wasn't particularly about this, but it really struck me. "How have you labeled yourself"? Or in my case, how have I labeled myself? Good Job Lissy! You have inspired me once again! 1610

Hey! You're my 50th follower! Too bad I don't have some great gift to give out. Good luck homeschooling this year (I DID read that you are homeschooling right?, you ever have any questions just ask. I am no pro, but we've been at it for 9 years! In fact I have a highschooler this year!)

Andrea Villarreal said...

Can't wait to see what you have going on with that!! I am trying to step more out of my box but not with power tools:)

you're so secretive! lol. i didnt even know you were working on something!

Kirsty said...

You go girrrrrl!!!! Can't wait to see your creation. I loved this post. I label myself way too much and it really does impede progress/potential when you do that. Thank you!

sarahgrace said...

Excited to see what you're working on. And have to laugh, because, even though I don't really know you- creative is a word I certainly use to describe you!

I also love that this post has such thought provoking questions at the end.

Ha! Looks like you have a serious project going on over there! The only power tool I use is the electric sander :)

LOL you crack me up Lisa! I can't wait for the surprise. I love the tool that really a tool belt? It looks to girly! I want one now. I had a friend ask me to sell jewelry and I said I don't think you know me too well I might sell tools but not jewelry. I think your tool belt find will top off my next career! When can we expect the final project?

cotedetexas said...

Roeshel said...

Look at you in your stylish safety glasses! haha You could be a safety glasses super model with those pretty blue eyes! :)

I can't wait to see what you're up to! The suspense is killing me!


Kelly Miller said...

Can't wait to see the project. My problem is I'm creative but disorganized, so I have tons of ideas but no real ability to execute them. Maybe I'll try a little harder.

TidyMom said...

Organized but not creative=that's ME TOO!!!!! LOL Can't wait to see what you're up too!!

I see you were one of the winner on The Nesters giveaways too!! Congrats!!


sunshine said...

Oh!!! I want one of those tool belts for Christmas. :) said...

You go!

It's always a fun adventure to try something new - even if you turn out to not be very good at it! But I have a feeling that isn't the case with your new venture!

Can't wait to see the big reveal!

Oh and yes, Etsy is AWESOME!!

Look at those saftey glasses! I'm afraid of power tools! I made myself use jig saw once but that's it. Can't wait to see what you're up to!


Heartfire At Home said...

Great post! Very true about the labels we put on ourselves. Loved this bit.....'escape from the box we place ourselves in and cut away our self-imposed boundaries'.... good stuff!

I can't wait to see the new project. Now I have to say I love the safety glasses. Do I see a hint of nascar on the side. I use my safety glasses to block the dirt flying at the race, but I guess construction projects can use them as well!

Looking forward to what you're creating!!!

JennyMac said...

Please tell me you will get that fab pink tool belt!

And love the uber cool safety goggles!

tara said...

That is great tool belt, I think you need one...I admire girls who aren't afriad of power tools and those who look introspectively into themselves in the process! Great post!
