HOMEMADE CHALK PAINT AND STRAWBERRY LEMONADE-WHAT?

It's Sunday evening and we have finally settled down for the evening.  ALL,  I can say is "WOW" what a day it has been.  We woke up this morning  as usual with the Sunday paper and a cup of coffee, but before I knew it we were like a whirl wind of diy projects, one right after the other.  First, I started working on a project for project Mom-Mom, I have been wanting to use chalk paint and found this make your own chalk paint on the internet...well, this didn't go so well, no matter how much I stirred, shook and stirred again it still was very gritty.  Me being me and not wanting to give up, thinking I am going to make this work...NOT!

UPDATE ON CHALK PAINT 8/6/12
I RECENTLY TRIED THIS AGAIN AND GLAD I DIDN'T GIVE UP!!
I LOVE THE FACT YOU CAN MAKE IT SO QUICK AND IN ANY COLOR YOU WANT.
SO, NOW I CAN'T STOP CHALK PAINTING!!!!
THE BEST WAY THAT WORKS FOR ME IS 1/3 PLASTER OF PARIS AND 2/3 PAINT.



so...this is what it called for...

 I finally gave up and just spray painted it white.."Don't Be A Quiter"
I stopped and read one of my favorite blogs www.bleak2unique.com thinking,  I really needed a break and as it turns out,  looks like I am not the only one that had a flop with chalk paint  project.

This  attempt to stencil, didn't work out so well either...really did I REALLY  think this was going to be easy?  I found out it's not! Stenciling on a round object was not the brightest thing I have ever tried to do!  Needless to say it bleed through and made a complete mess! Ended up putting this away for a bit..."I have another idea"

 So, when all else fails...make lemonade, strawberry lemonade....


So...moving on with our day, Mr. OMT summons me to the back yard to catch the lemons while he picked them, It's a good thing I played baseball in my younger days...and yes,  you guessed it... the position I played was catcher...HA!

Pretty!  Anyone ready for Spring?  I am!

Here is what I used to make Strawberry Lemonade
4 Lemons freshly squeezed
1 can frozen Strawberry daiquiri mix
4 cans of water using empty daiquiri container
1 cup of sugar
Pour over ice and serve

Mr. OMT said it was the best Strawberry Lemonade he has ever had!
 You all know the saying...to get to your mans heart is thru his tummy...right?   Would love to know if you make this, how you liked it?  OK...so I told you we were like a whirl wind of diy's, but it's past 8:00pm and 4:00am comes way to early so I will share the rest of our sunday during the week....till then, you can look forward to:
