All you need is white spray paint

White spray paint loveIt’s finally warm enough outside to spray paint! If you follow us on Facebook, you might have seen this picture of what I was painting on the driveway last week.

I don’t send snail mail as often as I used to, but I love writing notes to friends and family. Sure it takes longer and isn’t as “instant” as an email or text, but who doesn’t love getting a hand-written piece of mail?Desk organizer, white spray paintNow my favorite cards and paper are sitting pretty on my desk/sewing table.

Have you spray painted anything fun lately? Since I had the paint out, I painted a few other things that will show up on the blog in the next week or so. Stay posted!
