such a slacker.

First up, I want to say congratulations to Ruth H for winning my blogiversary giveaway.

I drew her name at random to win a few of my favorite Dixie Belle paint colors and a couple of other things.  Mr. Q has shipped off her prize and I hope she gets it in time to whip up a few things for the holidays.

What I didn’t mention in my original post about the giveaway was that I also had another complete package of all the same stuff to give to someone.  But rather than drawing a name at random for the 2nd set, I decided to give it to the person who left the most comments on my blog to date in 2020.  So I pulled up my blog stats and quite honestly I wasn’t at all surprised to find that that person was M. Constance Colvin.

Connie is a regular commenter, and she always sends the most lovely little messages, like this one …

“Well now……this post captures the essence of quandification (-: A pretty makeover of something that already looked great! “

and this one …

“A Quandie a day keeps the blog blahs away!!!”

Her comments always make me chuckle …

“Miss Quandie! Only TWO BUCKETS to share today? What a slacker!!!”

I’m super grateful to Connie for taking the time to leave comments.  They always make my day!

But speaking of being a slacker, I feel a bit like one this week.

Now that we are approaching the shortest day of the year, it’s dark when I leave for work in the morning and dark when I get home in the evening.  That means that if I want to photograph a project to share here on the blog I have to do it on the weekend.  If it’s not done by Sunday afternoon, then I am s.o.l.

Last weekend I spent some time finishing up my Christmas shopping, did my Christmas wrapping, and just enjoyed some down time.

I didn’t get a single thing painted.

Let’s hope I do better this weekend!

  1. Everybody needs rest once in awhile and a little time to be a slacker! You’re very productive and I so enjoy all your projects.


  2. A girl needs a free day now and then “All work and no play makes Jill a dull girl” lol. Love your projects. Such creativity and a full time job besides. Have a very Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year.


  3. I can only imagine how encouraging it is to receive regular cheerful, funny and encouraging comments. I know exactly what you mean about the shorter days, i love daylight savings time! LOL!

    I love your idea of stamping wrapping paper. I think next year I will do either a vintage/antique style or shabby chic tree & stamp my paper & brown craft gift bags.
    As always, thanks so much for your blog, I truly enjoy adding a bit of “Q” to my day!


    1. Wouldn’t it be great if they just left daylight savings in place year round? Of course, it would be darker later in the morning, but it would be nice to have just a tiny bit of daylight after work 🙂


  4. So excited!! Re-energized and revitalized to redo and recreate! Working on a big beautiful pine table (Dixie belle white wash gel stain on top & duck egg paint on legs), waterfall desk (aubergine with silver accents) and a fantastic Boos butcher block dining table.(all natural). I have a few items lined up for the new paint supplies I won. It’s getting me through the Covid doldrums. Thank you Linda!


    1. You’re very welcome Ruth! I think I’m a little envious that you have lots of projects lined up. I’ve been searching for some fun pieces to work on, but haven’t found just the right thing quite yet. Have fun with your new paint supplies!


  5. Everyone deserves a little time off! You fulfill our lives with so much, I for one am not offended when there is a little slacking going on. 😂
