      The Concordia Lutheran Church Men’s Club will once again be selling Christmas trees and wareths this year. The tree lot is located at the Church-School, 4245 Lake Avenue. Christmas tree sales will begin on Friday, November 23rd. The lot will be open 12:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. daily, except Saturday mornings, when it opens at 9:00 a.m. The proceeds from this fund raiser are used to support various projects and functions of the Concordia Church and school. A selection can be made from Scotch Pine, White Pine, Douglas Fir, Fraser Fir, and Blue Spruce. These trees were just cut a couple of weeks ago. Please come see how fresh they are. Decorated and undecorated wareths are also available. Your patronage would be greatly appreciated.

      28.02.2012 3:51 pm I shared on FB, liked and coetenmmd on Krylon’s FB page, joined your blog, and joined you on Twitter. So glad I did all of those things. I think my favorite spray paint projects would have to be my Christmas crafts. I’m a spray painting fool in October and November! If I should be lucky enough to win (fingers crossed) you can find me at

      16.02.2012 5:17 pm Mission accomplished! My faitrvoe painting projects are, tole painting on any kind of metal (I love to buy outdoor decorations spiff them up), and I love to decorative paint on wood. I have all the tools to cut out my own patterns: scrollsaw, Sanders, Dremel, so on I was once asked by the police, searching my neighborhood for someone, if all the tools in my garage were mine. Duh, their here! Like a woman owning tools is a crime, LOL!

      27.02.2012 3:55 pm Done, Done, and done!! The favorite thing I ever did with spray paint was saavngilg the Chandelier from my grandma’s home after she passed away. It was old and not very attractive at all, but I took it apart piece by piece, cleaned it, spray painted it white, then added just a few very light touches of brown and gold with a sponge. I smile every time I look at it

I guess my ltaset greatest would be the $12 chandelier I jumped out of my car and snatched up!!! Took it apart, cleaned it up, sprayed it silver, then a top coat of the Premium Sterling Silver, added all acrylic Christmas ornaments for all the bling!!! I’ve already had several people try to buy it from me . not gonna happen!!! : ) Keeping fingers toes crossed ..

    It doesn’t work as well as the photo exAMPLE ABOVE. THE photo looks realistic above, while when you apply the filter on my end the text looks fake and plastic-like in a bad way

      For me this is a relatively easy qeuitson, but has a pretty complex answer. The specialty I have actually looked forward to working with is OB/GYN. I find that the ability of a woman’s body to produce a child, endure the amount of abuse it takes during a pregnancy, and the amount of pain endured during delivery is amazing. The joy of being able to be present as life enters the world is truly one of the greatest moments in life. To me that would be the best possible option. I also would love working in the operating room with a surgeon. I have experienced the OR quite a few times, and have been on both sides of the table. I have to say I would love to work with any surgeon in the OR except for Orthopedics. The reason behind that is the surgery’s are pretty brutal when it comes to the skeletal system. Having been in the OR with an Orthopedic surgeon and seeing the use of the saws, hammers and other heavy equipment in order to perform the surgery just sends chills up my spine. I know that type of surgery is not for me. I think my favorite surgeries have to be that of the abdominal cavity. The specialties that I would least like to work for are few, and for simple reasons. Pediatrics is not a specialty for me since I have four children of my own. My Aunt is a neonatal nurse practitioner and I followed her in high school and saw the good, the bad, and the ugly so I can honestly say I could not emotionally handle that type of position. Podiatry is also an area I could not see myself working. The reason behind this is pretty silly, but here goes, I very much dislike other peoples feet especially if they are not well kept. I know in the medical field you will encounter feet on a daily basis, but I could not mainly work with feet on an everyday basis. My last specialty is Orthopedics for the reasons I noted above about the barbaric nature of the surgeries and treatments for the musculoskeletal system. Its just not for me.

Nothing like a new coat of paint to transform the old to new ! I’m actually going to spray a Metal tierd plate holder this weekend and a chandelier turned candle holder! Can’t wait to use them!
