Giddy for Gittiner Done!

Thanks to Donna and her inspiration I've been gittin' it done!

I decided on a list approach.

First thing.

Get a new dish soap dispenser for the kitchen.

I know this might appear pretty lame in the scheme of "gittin' things done", but trust me when I replaced this plastic thing with the new one I had a little skip in my step.

Some things just get put on hold because life is happening.  On HOLD was this dish detergent dispenser. (notice it wasn't even for dish soap.  lamest!)

Not anymore.  Gotter done!!!!

Next was the shower curtain on my 6yo's closet in his bedroom.  I've totally redone the room.  Yep, painted it and everything.  But that's not what I'm showing ya just yet.

I found a white roman shade at the thrift shop and wanted to put this shower curtain on it and mount it to hang on the window.  I had NO CLUE WITH FLASHING RED LIGHTS on how to do it.  So I made it up.  Yep.  Cut the shower curtain.  Laid the shade on the floor and glued (you read the correctly) glued the fabric to the shade.  Had no idea if it would work.

It did.

I even hung it up myself.  And it's straight.  By Golly Miss Molly I did it!
(funny.  when my husband asked if I wanted him to do it, I said, "No.  I can do it!" (in a Brooklyn accent!!!!)
It works!  It works!  I was so scared.  But it works!!!!

Next was making up a SWAP BOX for Leanne over at OrganizeYourStuffNow.
She sent mine out to me like back in 1982 two months ago.  I went on the wildest shopping adventures for a month looking for items that she'd like. I went to thrift shops, craft stores, a flea market.  I really got out there.  She likes vintage.  That stuff's not easy to find in a one-stop-shop!

I packed all the pretty stuff up and sent it out TODAY!!!
Gotter Done!

Next on the list is the wee spot here in our backyard.  Our bedroom window looks out over this little garden area.  I love the stump.  I mean, like, I LOVE it!!!

So I've been thinking about putting something on it.  A flowering plant.  Something.  I don't know.  But when I do I'll let you all know!

Thanks Donna!
Have a lovely evening!


  1. Well aren't you a lean, mean, gettin-er-done machine! Good going. I'm so impressed with your roman shade project. I'm in awe of your courage to tackle that by yourself, and it turned out fabulous. Here's a big "YOU GO GIRL" for ya!

    Ok, I have to run and post my kitchen makeover now. Oi!

    Hip, hip Kolein! Hip, hip Kolein! :):) I'm so proud of your newfound domestic diy prowess.

  2. Way to go! I am so impressed with your shade you made. I have a kit that I bought and never put it together. I better put it on my to do list. I think I've had that blind kit for oh, 2 years now.

  3. W.O.W. You weren't messing around. You are completely forgiven for taking a good long blogging breather. If you're that productive, go atter!

    That roman shade is KILLER cool!


  4. Look at everything you got done!! The Shade looks GREAT! All this gitten er done stuff going around is making me look bad! I have the same list I did a year ago! I'm thinking I may need to start gettin some stuff done!


  5. Wow Kolein, you did get alot done! And I'm super impressed with the new curtain. One thing I'm lacking on is the window area of my home. We've moved so much, by the time I find something that fits, we've moved again. I just give up. But you are inspiring me!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. It's nice to meet you too!!


  6. Go Girl! Proud of your accomplishments especially with everything else you have going on.

  7. Wow. I'm speechless. A soap dispenser and Roman shade all in one week. You are amazing. hehehe

    I just love reading your posts. Only you could make buying a soap dispenser interesting. You put a skip in my step as well. Later on, when I'm washing my hands and I push that little pump, I will just have a big ol' grin on my face thinking of you!

  8. You did it (said in a Brooklyn accent)!
    And it's ALL totally cute!!
    I am so proud of you--maybe you not be so scared next time (said in a little kid voice)?
    I love checking stuff off the To Do List!
    By the way, my name is NOT Molly.
    You are getting a bad memory in your old age, girl.


What you say means so much
